Editorial Reviews:

This book touches on her past life and the changes and mysteries that open up after she is contacted by her sister's husband, a good-for-nothing who wants money from Shelly, now a multi-billionaire music celebrity herself. This book has mysteries, crime, strong characters and a detective that plays a great role in the story. I enjoyed the book so much I could not stop reading it. It is clean and wholesome and it should be well received by many readers, from young adults to adults alike.  Readers Favorite Review

Leona Bryant writes a down to earth tale in Music City. Written in third person narrative, the refreshing, yet surprising story unfolds. The blend of rural country life mixed with the rich and famous city life of Nashville's Music City made an excellent backdrop for the plot. Bryant writes well-rounded characters. The protagonist is abused, but not a victim; she is portrayed as smart, beautiful and extremely likeable. Although each character grows throughout the plot, some grow to a dynamic arc, while others grow full circle. The cast of characters surpass their personal tragedies and walk into their futures with new found self-assurance. However, the resolution of the novel is not concrete; Leona Bryant leaves room for the reader's imagination. Music City is a tale of tragedy with a feel-good end.  Readers Favorite Review

Every once in awhile I find a book that makes me a fan for life! Music City was just such a novel. From the very beginning I was absorbed into Shelly Shepard’s world. Her painful past, and the turn of events, that change her life with one choice. I especially loved Shelly’s straight talking no nonsense approach to trouble, while at the same time allowing the character to be loveable too. Leona Bryant has style of writing that allows you to connect to her characters immediately while providing rich details that leave the reader wanting more. A page-turner to be sure! I liked this book on so many levels. When I began reading this, I expected one book but got another. I wish more writers had this kind of talent to tell a story with such a strong narrative. I was so into the story, I kept telling myself…just one more chapter! I can’t wait for more books from this very gifted author. 5 Stars!

Leona Bryant's book, Music City, is an extraordinary story. The tale of an abused child who becomes a Nashville super star is so engrossing that I couldn't stop reading or thinking about it (when I couldn't be reading). The author creates characters that are so compelling that you care about them and want them to find happiness. Her ability to intertwine several stories was impressive. The book is well plotted and extremely satisfying. She has a plot twist that took me completely by surprise. This story touched me. It had me alternately smiling and crying. I'm look forward to read more by this author. I loved Music City!

Music City is a riveting, emotionally heart wrenching story of a young southern girl who embarks on a journey to flee the clutches of her alcoholic mother. A musically scored composition that inspires the inner hope in all of us. We all can relate with the breakdown of the family structure in our lives. The plot, storyline, and character development weaves through many twists and turns. The lead character, Shelly Shepard, begins her career with anonymity and propels herself to a huge musical entertainment success.

Of course, very few people succeed in life without a bit of assistance. Shelly is no different. A stranger expectantly enters her destitute life and becomes the pivotal key to her rising stardom. Years later, at the pinnacle of her career, Shelly beckons her inner curiosity in an effort to discover the identity of the mysterious stranger who forever changed her life. The game is afoot, as you will walk through the eyes of the characters and private investigators hired to obtain the identity of the individual.

The author delicately conducts the reader through a well-written masterpiece of mystery and mystique. You will be glad that you invested the time to unravel the surprising ending. No good deed goes unpunished! It is a novel that you simply cannot put down until the last page is turned. Worthy of a 5 star review!

This is a well crafted story and I absolutely enjoyed reading it from start to finish. It's an absorbing and attention-grabbing work that had me engaged from the beginning. The story flows from scene to scene effortlessly, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling.

The story had every element a good story should have. An exciting plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. This interesting and compelling work, as I said, had my attention from the beginning. There are twists and turns in this page turner that will take the reader on an intriguing journey. Also, the writing style is straightforward which makes for an enjoyable read.

A physically and emotionally abused teenage girl from the foothills of North Carolina embarks on a journey that takes her to Nashville, to escape the crushing tyranny of an alcoholic mother. Thanks to the compassion and kindness of a stranger, she finds employment and solace in a local café. When she meets a regular at the café, Trent Shepard, their lives will never be the same again; rising to incredible prestige in the music industry, earning her the title of Queen of Music City.

Three decades later, two young detectives arrive in Nashville with a similar cruel past as her own, trying to start a new life. To their astonishment, one of their first clients is none other than the Queen of Music City herself. Now, one of Americas most long standing mega stars is placing her past in their hands. Can they solve the mystery of the generous stranger who changed her life all those years ago? Of course, I can't say. This is a mystery you must unravel for yourself!

Music City is a very interesting, twisting and turning, plots within plots read!

I love road trips – and this book delivers! From the beginning, upon meeting the heroine, the ‘road trip’ easily accelerates and soon pushes the speed limit, and oftentimes breaks it!

Leona Bryant’s ‘easy twister’ rambles through memories as easily as a lazy spring rambles through a wooded meadow. And just like lazy springs, hidden surprises await at every turn of the bend, and sometimes – you meet indigenous life that leads to more than you bargained for. Just when you’re convinced that what you thought you knew – you never knew – you find out you’re right!

Yep, you got it – Music City has snakes to deal with, and these don’t crawl around on their bellies. All snakes bite, some with teeth – and some with deeds so unpredictable you’ll have to go back and reread the chapter just to make sure you got it right! Had your DNA checked lately? On the other hand – some doors are best not opened. Nope, that’s all I’m gonna say – BUT – you’ve gotta read this book!

Music City is a real page-turner that eclipses the soul and haunts the memory – and you’re gonna love it!

Something to ponder: The next time you set out to do a good deed, ask yourself, is it going to be good for everyone?!

Bravo Leona – keep ‘em coming!!
