Zane had made it big in the country music scene; he was on top of the world. Nothing could touch him...until a car wreck took his wife's life and left his son crippled. Suddenly, the success he'd worked so hard to gain tastes bitter on his tongue, and all he wants to do is hide from the world and lick his wounds.

Late one night, idly browsing the internet, he finds Dr. Whitaker's horse therapy camp, and makes the split-second decision that if he's going to hide out somewhere, hell, it might as well be the wilds of Idaho. Packing up his son and leaving everything else behind, he moves to Sawyer, wanting nothing more than the peace and quiet that comes with anonymity.

Then Nurse Louisa comes strolling into his life, there to help his son recuperate. Zane quickly realizes, though, that his son isn't the only one who needs her healing touch...

Strummin' Up Love is the first novel in the Musicians of Long Valley series, although all books in the Long Valley world can be read as standalones. It has some strong language, and oh my, sexy times. Enjoy!

I loved Louisa and Zane's story...and Skylar, who cannot be left out! Their relationship changes soon after they meet, although they both refuse to acknowledge it. However, their love for Skylar brings them together until they have one evening that ends in way too much attention! This book is one that you will not be able to put down. I highly recommend it.

Zane was on his way to an award show with his wife, Tamara and his son, Skylar and he was fit to be tied wondering if he could possibly win when tragedy struck so hard that shut his heart up and sent him running from everything and taking his son with him, he ended up in Idaho so far from Nashville and his dreams to try to figure out what to do about his and Skylar's lives. When he hired Louisa to come and help with Skylar, little did he know she would be the key to helping him and Skylar mend their hearts but would she stay and be the anchor they both needed and would she and Zane come to love each other, only time will tell!!!

I am a big fan of Erin Wright. Her books let me escape the pressures and doldrums of my life and explore another world. Strummin' Up Love does not disappoint. Erin has the ability to take normal everyday life - serious or not - and turn it into an amazing tale of love and perseverance that never grows old and always delights. The characters are not always likeable - that is life - but they grow and become more. You root for them, laugh with them, cheer for them, cry for them. Don't miss out on this amazing story!

Zane Risley, a country western singer, rapped on the bathroom door to hurry his wife, Tamara, along. He absolutely did not want to be late for the CMAs but it seemed inevitable now! She had been in there for hours already, fussing with her hair and makeup. He would gladly leave without her, but the gossip rags would go wild over that. They finally got into the limo and started the trip as the snow fell. But as his son, Skylar, excitedly explored the limo, they were involved in a bad accident and Tamara was killed. Louisa Vargas was living back home in her mom’s small house with her ton of siblings. Living with Matthew had been what she wanted – even though she was only deceiving herself. Her mom told her to call her Aunt Carmelita, which was unusual since they didn’t see her often. She wanted to tell Louisa about a 12-year-old boy who ended up a paraplegic from a car accident 18 months ago. Zane needed someone to help take care of his son for the three summer months he was attending Dr. Whitaker’s horse therapy camp. Since Louisa was an RN who had specialized in spinal injuries, she would be perfect for the job. The unit she’d worked in was one of the premier spinal cord injury units in the US with people flying to Salt Lake to be treated there, so she was definitely the right person to help. Skylar has not been the perfect patient. His father, who had been on tours with his successful music career had not really developed a deep relationship with his son. He loved him, but he didn’t know how to be a dad and turned his son over to others to care for his needs. So Skylar pulls pranks on his caregivers until none want to take the job. When Louisa arrives, she is exactly what both Skylar and Zane need. She handles his pranks as only a woman who grew up in a loving family with a ton of siblings can – no screaming or yelling, just a quiet handling of the issues with fairness and love. Skylar begins to trust her as she approaches everything with a true desire to help and inspires him to want to try harder. She also sees Zane’s pain and guilt and what it has done to him, and she helps him to see what he has been doing to himself. Will Louisa’s loving touch heal Zane and Skylar? Will she allow herself to be drawn into their lives since she has become so important to them both? Is there a HEA for this beautiful woman and the two males she has come to love? This is such a beautiful, loving story about friendship, trust, loyalty, and healing. The characters are simply amazing, the kind of good people everyone should have in their lives. The story line is outstanding, providing hope and love and the empowerment to reach out for what you need to achieve! Immerse yourself in this amazing book – it will touch your heart in the best way possible.

4.5 Stars This is a good first story on this new Long Valley series. I loved Louisa right from the beginning. She was just what Zane and Skylar need right when they need it most. Zane took longer to like but by the end I really did.

Zane is a very famous country singer who after an accident, where he lost his wife and his son resulted injured, decided to go to Idaho to Adam Whitaker’s horse therapy camp. Louisa is a nurse in a spinal injury hospital, but she gives up her job because of her relationship with her boss. However, she isn’t jobless for too long as her aunt Carmelita gets one for her. I loved to see all the Millers and their wives and children, to see they get along better than they did in the first book of Long Valley Series. This book is the funniest Erin Wright has written. I laughed out several times and there was a question Skyler asked his father that cracked me up. If you want to know which one, you’ll have to buy the book. You won’t regret it.

A heartwarming emotional roller coaster filled with hard not to love charters, fun witty banter, slightly lost souls and enduring family bonds..... was a excellent read from beginning to end and hit all the best heart strings. Loved this journey and looking forward to returning to Long Valley for another visit!

This is another hit by author Erin Wright. I automatically buy every single one of her books. They have a wonderful combination of sweet, down to earth and sexy. Zane is a country music sensation. He works hard to be the best he can. Too bad his wife seems bound and determined to make him miserable. When his wife is killed and his young son, Skylar, is paralyzed in a tragic accident, Zane is left to raise his son by himself. He realizes how little he knows about his Skylar. Skylar turns into a sullen hellion. Louisa thought she had it all. A fantastic job as a nurse, a doctor boyfriend and an awesome family. When her relationship with the doctor falls apart, she is forced to leave her job at a premier spinal injury hospital. With no job prospects she is forced to move in with her family. Thankfully, she hears of a job taking care of a young, paralyzed boy. I just loved this story. It is obvious that the author has done a lot of research for this book. And I know that the storyline hits close to home for her. This book is part of a series but you can read it by itself.

Zade, superstar country singer, needs a nurse to take care of his wild paraplegic son during his camp summer in Sawyer. Louisa needs a job after quitting her job as a nurse in Salt Lake Hospital when his boss cheated on her. Can two different people fall in love and overcome all their fears and struggle in life? A powerful story with real people, with real problems and issues but willing to face them to become a better person. Erin Wright tells us real life’s Stories not about Prince Charming and sweet princess but with strong and not so strong people facing challenges everyday. I really love Sawyer and their townspeople. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
