Review of Made in Nashville

Made in Nashville - Mandy Baggot

Made in Nashville...feel the country!


An on-stage attack left Honor Blackwood with more scars than just the one on her face. It’s been ten years since she left her spot as Nashville’s brightest country music star. Is now the time to return? And is she brave enough to do it?


Country rebel and rock star, Jared ‘Jed’ Marshall is hot property on the Tennessee music scene in more ways than one. He’s wild, he’s sexy and everybody wants a piece of him. But when he sets his sights on Honor, is it pure attraction or just distraction on his mind?


Honor’s record label sign the ex-boyfriend that dumped her and suddenly going back to her old life is harder than she thought. Can she get a new contract? Will she get to perform at the Marlon Festival? Or will Dan Steele destroy everything?


When a secret from the past becomes public knowledge it’s no longer just about the music. Are all the people in her life lying to her to get what they want? And who is really behind the anonymous gifts she keeps getting sent?


Join the country scene to find out!




Made in Nashville – where the off-stage action’s as hot as the music!




Love ABC’s Nashville? Fall in love with a story that’ll drag you into the heart of the country music scene.


Battle scars, broken contracts and a returning star with a point to prove.  Fists are flying faster than award nominations and emotions run even higher. 


Country rebel and rock star, Jared ‘Jed’ Marshall is hot property on the Tennessee music scene in more ways than one. He’s wild, he’s sexy and everybody wants a piece of him. But when he sets his sights on singer Honor Blackwood, is it pure attraction or just distraction on his mind?


Visit the home of country music and get ready for the finger-picking read of the year!

My review


After reading this book, all I want to say to Mandy is ‘ Made in Nashville rocks’! If you like country music, you’ll love this book and if you don’t you’ll still like it. We are given an insight into the country music scene through Honor, a talented artiste who hasn’t performed for ten years after being attacked on stage and Jed, the so-called bad boy of country. I really enjoyed watching the relationship develop between these two. We see Honor try to conquer her demons to re-launch her career and gain in confidence just as we see Jed’s armor coating finally pierced. Of course, there has to be an obstacle in the way in the form of Jed’s past as he harbors a secret that he can’t tell because he knows that if he does, it will push Honor away for good. Add suspense to the mix in the form of a stalker and with Nashville as the backdrop, you have the makings of a fast-paced enjoyable read. Yee-haw!




Best for … combining romance with country music and a bad boy hero
