Middle of a non-Rock Fiction series alert!

Yep, this is one in a series about a small town, and this is the Rock Fiction component to the series. (Ever notice how many series have one Rock Fiction entry? I have!)

Here’s the description:

It’s finally Heather Finley’s moment. After spending years looking after her mother in the tiny town of Heartache, Tennessee, Heather’s about to follow her dream of singing country music. She can nearly hear the audiences hollering…until the town’s handsome mayor, Zach Chance, comes to her with troubling questions about her late father’s past. Once again, Heather has to choose: protect her family or chase her heart’s desire? Zach is determined to help, and to convince Heather that she belongs in Heartache–with him. But is he just another distraction? Or could he be the one to show Heather how a small-town love can make her big-time dreams come true?

So… I feel like we’ve seen this one before but the trope doesn’t have a name yet. Maybe it’s not really a trope yet. “I must choose between X and my music.”

And it’s usually a choice between love and music. Which, when I think about the people I know, makes sense. Music is a passion that can swallow people as hard as love, if not harder. Sometimes, you gotta choose. And sometimes, you don’t.

Anyway, like with all the usual tropes, what matters here is how the author pulls it off. And the only way to find out is to read it!
