Synopsis:Fighting for redemption . . .
I've lived most of my life in darkness, beneath the shadows of secrets and addictions. The last thing I ever wanted to do was hurt the only girl I'd ever loved—the one who brought me into the light. In my entire life I'd made one promise—a promise I'd intended to keep. I've broken that promise and now I have to live with the fallout. Dixie Lark hates me, and I have to tell her that I love her. I also have to tell her a truth that might destroy us forever.
Can she love me, even if she can't forgive me?
Learning to move on . . .
Gavin Garrison broke his promise to my brother and he broke my heart in the process.I may never love anyone the way I've loved him, but at least I won't spend my life wondering "what if." We had our one night and he walked away. I'm beginning to move on, but my brother's wedding and a battle of the bands are about to throw us together again.
Our band is getting a second chance, but I don't know if I can give him one. How do you hand your heart back to the person who set it on fire once already?

An Excerpt from Missing Dixie
“Missed you at rehearsal dinner,” I text to his number. “Hope everything is okay.”
We do two more walk-throughs, me with my invisible Gavin, before heading into a formal dining room for dinner.
I check my phone several times, finding exactly what I expect to time and time again.
No new messages.
This past year, traveling on my own, meeting new people, coming home, and establishing a life for myself—one that didn’t include my brother or Gavin or the band—it hasn’t been easy but it has made me a stronger, more independent version of myself. I have grieved the loss of my grandfather, met new people, seen things I never thought I would, started a successful music instruction business, and moved on from the pain of knowing Gavin didn’t want me the way I wanted him. All of this I’ve done alone. No overprotective brother giving orders or watching my every move, no broody drummer distracting me at every turn, and no one to answer to except myself.
I didn’t reach out to him, even when I knew he was home. Because one thing I decided over these last few months is that I did the reaching in Austin. It’s his turn. He has to decide if he can do this—us, me and him, the band, all of it—for real this time, not with only half his heart.
Missing Dixie is the 3rd book in the series. I loved it just as much as I did the other two. It will tug at your heart strings that’s for sure!
We get dual POVs this time from Dixie Lark and Gavin Garrison. I loved getting to know what they both were thinking this time around.
Gavin Garrison- God love him! He has been through so much and it seems like the hits just keep coming. You will have a love/hate relationship with him throughout the book. I wanted to scream at him one minute and reach in and give him a huge hug the next. He without a doubt loves Dixie, but he has had to lie and make her think otherwise. His life has been anything but easy and this just makes it even harder. He falls deeper into the darkness and feels like there is no light at the end of the very long tunnel.
Dixie Lark- I have loved her character from the beginning. You feel for her and her and her pain. Just as she’s moving on and doing her own thing as chance, or I’d like to call it fate would have it, Dixie and Gavin’s worlds are getting ready to cross again.
Will Gavin be able to tell Dixie the truth? Will Dixie even look at him the same way? Is there hope that these two can finally be together? You will have to read and find out.
This book will pull at every emotion and make you believe in hope, second chances and believing in ones self even when the odds are stacked against you!
I give Missing Dixie 5 huge emotional stars!! It was a beautiful ending to this amazing story!
