Country Heaven (Dare River #1) Reviews
This is one of the best freebies I can ever recall reading! Strong 4 star read!
Really well written, flawed likeable characters who each help the other become a better person throughout the course of their relationship. Poignant dialog and plot developments, great supporting cast. Really cute recipe and song inclusions helping to support the uniqueness of this book and speak to the individual traits and strengths of the main characters. And yes, there were steamy moments but surprisingly those pa ...more

I am not sure where to even begin with this novel. To stay it is wonderful is probably the understatement of the year, but it is wonderful. So wonderful that even as I read it, I never wanted this book to end. It was just beautiful story telling, moving and every scene was rich with emotion and depth.
I think it was the depth of this story that caught me so unawares. I was expecting a simple plot where bad ass rock star meets sweet girl and cleans up his lifestyle because of true love. Simple, sw ...more
I thoroughly enjoyed the story of Tory, a cook in a diner, and Rye, a famous singer. When Rye offers Tory a job as his personal chef traveling with him as he tours, Tory can't turn down the money. Rye is no stranger to women throwing themselves at a celebrity and never expects to feel an attraction to someone like Tory. As the two spend time together, Tory gets to know a man who, on the outside, appears to have it all, but is actually lonely and, she decides, in need of reconnecting with his est ...more
I've found a new author to add to my Favorites List. I'd read Ms Miles Nora Roberts Land and enjoyed it. When this title was available for free at Amazon and B&N, I grabbed it. The storyline is well planned and flows smoothly. The characters are very well drawn and they are believable.
I've already bought #2 in this series.
This is my first book by Ms. Miles, it is the first book in the Dare River Series and I loved every frigging second of it. It made me laugh it made me cry it made want to never say goodbye.4 Country Heaven Stars. Off to read the first book in the Dare Valley Series.
Will a self-indulgent, country star with a bad boy image find that the way to his heart of hearts is through his stomach? If his newly hired personal chef were to answer that question when she first met him, she would say he doesn’t have a heart capable of love, just an overly active ego and a bulging wallet. Is that the real Rye Crenshaw or is there more to this man than meets the eye? Will their time together while on tour become more than a PR stunt to improve Rye’s tattered image? Tory is fa ...more
This is the first book from this author that I've read and will not be the last. What a talented writer Ava Miles is, and this story is up there amongst my favorite reads! It deserves so many more than 5 stars. The main characters, Rye and Tory, are amazing people. And each so talented in what they do. Rye with his country music, and Tory in her cooking. Their love for each other is a slow build with several set-backs that either had me laughing, or crying while my heart was breaking for them. T ...more
