But when she starts to fall in love with Jackson, the stakes suddenly get higher and she finds herself with a great big dilemma on her hands.

Follow Rachel and Jackson as they learn to trust in love again and to see whether music really can bring them together.
What readers are saying about From Here to Nashville
'This book gives what we want from a contemporary romance, escapism with... a story that is interesting and which maybe isn’t quite as predictable as you might expect.'
‘It kept me entertained from beginning to end. All in all, a great début and I look forward to the next book!’ Annie’s Book Corner
‘An entertaining contemporary romance with a country-music feel to it and characters easy to connect with right from the first page.’ Reviewed the Book
‘From Here to Nashville by Julie Stock is one of the best books I have read in 2015!! She had me smiling from ear to ear throughout the book. I knew I was going to like the book because of my love of country music and romance novels. However, I had no idea how much this book would actually touch my heart. There was even a part in the story that I shed a tear - a happy tear.’ Heidi Simon Book Reviews



This excerpt is from the beginning of chapter 4. Jenna, Rachel’s best friend, has asked her to come in and help her at her florist’s shop after one of her staff members has called in sick. She has no idea when she agrees to help out that she will also meet Jackson again.

‘Okay, what else can I say but yes, but you owe me for calling me at this ungodly hour when I’m on holiday. I’ll be there as soon as I can.’ I grumbled but I would do anything for Jenna and she knew she only had to ask so I stumbled out of bed and into the shower, ate a quick slice of toast and set off for the town. I knew that there was a lot of preparation to be done before the shop opened as well and Jenna wouldn’t be able to do it without my help.

As I set off towards the seafront once again, I enjoyed the feel of the early morning sun on my face and the gentle breeze through my hair. I would never grow tired of living by the sea, with the particular salty smell of the air and the sound of the water lapping against the harbour walls. As I walked, my mood lifted immediately, banishing the pain of the early wake-up call. I paused for a moment to take in the red, yellow and blue-coloured boats bobbing in the harbour and their shimmering reflections in the water.

The shop kept Jenna and I steadily busy throughout the morning and it was nearly eleven before we had time for a cup of tea. I left Jenna serving while I went into the back room where she kept a very small kitchen area. As I was stirring the sugar in, I heard the bell go, then, Jenna in conversation with a very familiar-sounding American.

‘Jackson!’ I exclaimed.
