Whiskey Girl Reviews
Can you imagine what it would feel like if one day you woke up only to find that the person who you love most in your life, your reason for breathing, vanished? No note, no text, nothing.
Fast forward ten years ... Once a famous country-western singer, Fallon Gentry has spent the past decade traveling around and playing his music in dive bars while drinking himself into oblivion night after night. I wondered if he was running from the ghosts of his past or searching for them instead ... unless th ...more
Fallon Gentry is a country singer, a Nashville star who's turned his back on everything to play in honky tonk bars and drink whisky, waiting and hoping to once again see Augusta Belle Branson. Augusta is the girl who ensnared his heart from when she was in her teens but then she leaves him, lost and alone.
The story goes between two time frames, the present and the past, which fills in the missing history between the two lead characters. Both are given the opportunity to share their points of vie ...more
4.5 stars; holy cow, this was really good!
3.5 Smooth Stars
Fallon Gentry may be from the wrong side of the tracks but he’s a gentleman and a good guy nonetheless. He had my heart from the start. Augusta Belle Branson may come from money, but her home life sucks. Flipping between past and present sets the scene for this emotional ride of second chances. Both hearts breaking trying to find what’s been missing since being torn apart. The story is as smooth as the whiskey in the title and a sweet read.
“I couldn’t see a single face behind the glaring stage lights, but still, some part of me pretended she could be out there, that I was singing to her. That she would hear her song and find her way back to me.”
It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside when I find myself still thinking about a book a whole week after first finishing it, and the more I think about this story, the more beauty I keep finding in every single memory of it. From its arresting opening line to the many jaw-dropping b ...more
Whiskey Girl is a really great read. Fallon and Augusta have a crazy past. They loved each other then Augusta left without a word to Fallon. Augusta is back and has found Fallon. Fallon is not very happy to see her at first. I kind of felt Fallon was really harsh to Augusta when she came back. She is strong and persistent and even though Fallon is jerky she doesn't back down. This one is a slow burn read that had me hooked from the beginning. Chapter after chapter we get more info on what happen ...more
“Never thought I’d find home again.”
There is just something about a book with the word whiskey in the title that does something for me. And in all honesty, that's the only reason I chose to read this book. I'm just thrilled that it was so good!
Fallon and Augusta have a past, a past that was over ten years ago and we get to know them in flashbacks. It's not my favorite way to get to know characters but I think it worked in this case.
I enjoyed getting to know their younger selves and ho ...more
Whiskey Girl is a beautiful yet emotional 2nd chance at love romance. It’s about a country singer/songwriter and his muse/ soul mate. They were young lovers who thought it would be them against the world yet that wasn’t the case. Fallon Gentry came from the wrong side of the tracks and barely had a dime to his name but he loved his Augusta Belle. It seemed her family didn’t want her with him yet they didn’t care- it seemed their futures looked bright and they had love on their side. Tragically, ...more
