Leaving Amarillo synopsis:
Dixie Lark hasn’t had it easy. She lost her parents in an accident when she was young and grew up in a ramshackle house on a dirt road in Amarillo with her ailing grandparents and overprotective older brother. Thanks to her grandfather, Dixie learned to play a mean fiddle, inspired by the sounds of the greats—Johnny and June, Waylon, and Hank. Her grandfather’s fiddle changed Dixie’s life forever, giving her an outlet for the turmoil of her broken heart and inspiring a daring dream.

Ten years later, Dixie and her brother, Dallas, are creating the music they love and chasing fame with their hot band, Leaving Amarillo. But Dixie isn’t enjoying the ride. All she can think about is Gavin, the band’s tattooed, tortured drummer who she’s loved since they were kids. She knows he feels the connection between them, but he refuses see her as more than his best friend’s little sister.

Convinced that one night with Gavin will get him out of her system, Dixie devises a plan. She doesn’t know that her brother has forbidden Gavin from making a move on her-a promise he swore he’d always keep . . . a promise that once broken will unexpectedly change the future for Dixie, Gavin and the band.


I love books about romance and musicians and this book certainly has that, but that simple description is certainly doing this book a disservice as it has a whole lot more to it than that. This book is about true friendship at the core but as with most friendships, they are never straightforward. This book is gritty, is real, is fun and has unique characters. Dixie, is such a strong female taking the lead with Gavin. Dallas is the big brother we all want, protective but loving, and Gavin he is one hot drummer boy, who has has a turbulent childhood but with the support of his two best friends has gotten through it. Will, love later the dynamics of this trio, will fame and fortune split them up. Who knows but what I do know is that this book gives you a fantastic read with a gritty storyline and realistic characters. I award it 4 stars and am looking forward to the next book about Dallas ~Rosie
