Blog Tour, Review by Jackie & Giveaway: Missing Dixie by Caisey Quinn


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?

I lost a lot of time focusing on the pain and the past. But when I stopped
letting it consume me, I found myself in the same place where I always find myself.
In music.
When I stopped moping and feeling sorry for myself, I made some changes in my
life. I’ve found happiness and joy in giving piano and violin lessons to
underprivileged local kids and it’s been such a successful program that I had to get a
business license and name it. Over the Rainbow is my passion project and I’ve
formed friend- ships with many of the parents of the kiddos I teach. Maybe it’s not
performing onstage or coming to life beneath the lights, but I love it just the same.
If there is anything I’ve learned about gifts, like the gift of being able to play an
instrument, it’s that they should be shared with the world one way or another. I also
learned a valuable lesson from my grandparents that it took traveling around the
country living their dream to fully comprehend. They didn’t get to live their dream
but it didn’t mean they weren’t happy. Together they lived a full, satisfied life and
they had plenty of love leftover to give to the two orphans they ended up raising.
Life doesn’t always turn out how you expect and sometimes parts of you get broken
along the way, but there is always hope and even broken pieces can be rebuilt into
something beautiful. My heart is a piece of mosaic art at this point.
Standing there, staring at myself in the glass, I vow to focus on the music, on
grabbing hold of what joy I have in my life and not letting go.
Most important? I vow never again to hand my heart over to Gavin Garrison.
At least not until he hands me his first.

4 Star 
I was given this book for a honest review.
This is a new series to me and I will be honest and say I struggled to get into this book  and I suspect that this was because I hadn't read the previous 2 books but I'm so glad I persevered.
Dixie and Gavin have so much chemistry and you can't help falling in love with them even without knowing their history.
Dixie and Gavin plus her older brother Dallas had formed the band Leaving Amarillo but Dallas was offered a solo contract, Dixie traveled for a while and Gavin was off doing who knows what...
They all come back together for Dallas's wedding and both Dixie and Gavin know they have one night to put the past behind them and after all the band is getting a second chance so why not them as well. But how do you give your heart back to the person who not only set it on fire they broke it into pieces as well......
Gavin has to tell Dixie how he feels he can't go on knowing he broke her heart, he needs to tell her he loves her, he needs to put it right .......
The love story was good but what was brilliant about this book was how Caisey brought the music industry to life, how she described the band and its members. I think you need to read the previous books to get the best from this book so I guess I will be re reading but starting at the beginning with book 1.
