    Contrary to what I believed when I first started with the Welcome to Bluestone series, Bluestone Song ended up being my favorite from the trilogy. There is always something about the way that M. J. writes that explores the heart of conflicts ingrained deep inside of familial ties that just earns my wholehearted approval. And Bluestone Song is no exception to that rule.Country singer and sensation Maddox Bradley returns to Bluestone, the one place that had always felt home to him after fourteen years of being away. He has been to the brink of disaster and back and returns amidst rumors of him turning to the bottle again for solace and comfort. Bluestone holds a lot of memories for Maddox, the primary source of those memories being none other than Beth Lapointe.For the full review with quotes please visitMBR's Realm of Romance Rating=4.25/5

    Bluetongue SongI am not a country music fan but I still enjoyed this story. Maddox was quite the hottie. I like how the author made references to the Leo and Trinity characters with their wedding. I like the stories that originate in small towns.

    Beth Lapointe spent her childhood avoiding abuse when she could and defending her brothers and sister when she couldn’t. In spite of her best efforts, she simply outgrew one set of problems and accepted another when Linda, her rebellious teen-aged sister, got pregnant in high school, developed an alcohol addiction, following in their father’s footsteps, and refuses to give her baby up for adoption.Beth’s job at Quinn’s Bar and Grill, social center of tiny Bluestone, Minnesota, keeps her tiny family fed, and baby Jonas in diapers--but not much else. In spite of interest from the town’s good doctor, dating isn’t something Beth has time for--so not getting over Maddox Bradley, her high school love, doesn’t matter.Except that Maddox Bradley achieved his dream, and is a mega country star. Women pursue him--and so does drinking. His affairs and his stints in rehab are tabloid fodder, his songs are all hits--he’s leading the perfect life.Or would be, if only he could forget hurting Beth when he walked out of her life, and forgetting the beautiful little town he spent his summers in when Bluestone needed him most. Pained by guilt over skipping a concert to help save the town’s economy, Maddox decides to drop in at Quinn’s for a few weeks of summer music, hoping to make financial amends.Beth, already at wit’s ends, faces new challenges when impossible demands and her always present need for Maddox collide with the reality of her life--a life in which love has neither place nor time to grow.MJ Fredrick’s Bluestone Song is book 2 of the 3 book For Love of Bluestone series, but is also available on its own. Like Bluestone Homecoming, Ms. Fredrick weaves a tale full of emotion and understanding of small towns and the people who inhabit them. You’ll worry about Beth, root for her--and you’ll flat out love Maddox. Love scenes are hot, but I also liked the tenderness leading up to them.You don’t have to be a country music fan to love this book, but I am--and she knows the field well enough to throw in the right details to make this book one you’ll cherish. I finished Bluestone Song in one sitting, and haven’t started another book yet, because like Beth because I don’t want to let Maddox go yet!

    Bluestone Song is book 2 in the Welcome to Bluestone series by M.J. Fredrick. It takes place in the little town of Bluestone, Minnesota. They have great fishing and hiking in the area. It was a great second book.Beth Lapointe has given her life to raise her brothers and sister. Her father is an alcoholic and deserted the family. She was left to raise a 10-year old, a 6 year old, and a two year old. The older boys had left for college and were self-supporting. Her little sister, Linda, is still in high school although she would rather be drinking and partying than go to school. She had gotten pregnant and was prepared to give the child up for adoption; but since she had Beth to help, she decided to keep her son. However, she is great at leaving it to Beth to take care of him. Beth was working two jobs to make ends meet and to pay her father off so he would stay away from Bluestone. She had no personal life and wouldn’t until Linda was raised. Maddox Bradley was a summer kid at Bluestone. He and Beth were high school sweethearts although she wasn’t allowed to date. She would sneak out to see him. However, he left Bluestone to try to make it into the music business. Luckily for him, he did make it. He was pictured in the tabloids as a partier and he drank too much. When he wrecked his car after being sober for sixteen months, he came to Bluestone to hide. Bluestone had wanted him to come give a concert earlier; but he had a schedule conflict and didn’t come. Now he was in Bluestone and sang at Quinn’s to help bring in people to the town. He sees that Beth needs help and he can afford to help her out. However, he knows Beth would not take anything from him. When he plays at Quinn’s, her tips are greater. However, this isn’t enough so she quits Quinn’s and goes to work at a nearby casino. She hates the job but the tips are good. However, she ends up back at Quinn’s. What can she do to bring in more money? How can she help Linda with her drinking? What will she do with her feelings for Maddox?

    3.75 rounded up to 4. I really enjoyed this book. It was pure fun to read. There are issues of abuse addressed, but not too heavily. It was not the point of the story. Beth and Maddox have a history. She is a permanent resident of Bluestone; he is a summer boy. Beth grew up in a totally dysfunctional family with at least mental abuse, if not physical. Maddox grew up in a loving and supportive family who welcomed Beth with open arms. They started dating the summer after Beth's sophomore year in high school when Maddox's singing career was just a dream. They were an item from then on. At least until after her senior year and it was time for their future. She refused to go with Maddox to Nashville. That's the history that unfolds throughout the book. Fourteen years later, after a car accident and much speculation as to the cause, Maddox is back in Bluestone. When he walks into Quinn's he doesn't expect to see Beth. But once he does his past and future collide. Too bad Beth can't see anything but the past. All in all, a quick and entertaining read that opens up how differently siblings are affected by an abusive and dysfunctional relationship with a parent. There were times I wanted to scream at Beth for trying to shield her siblings, but I totally got it, too. I also understood the frustration of the people who care about Beth. While this book it about Beth and Maddox there are plenty of appearances of characters from the first Bluestone book. In fact, you get to know them just a little better, too.

    i enjoyed reading this story. I'm a sucker for books about musicians anyway--I don't see a lot of them in traditional published books. Beth's many problems hit home for me since I'm going through a crisis of my own (much different from hers, but a crisis all the same) of my own right now. I also like books with the "friends become lovers" plot.I like the way Beth and Maddox's relationship progressed. I really liked this story!

    This storyline is heavy with emotional issues...drunk, abusive father, 16 yr old spoiled and shallow single mother, one woman trying to care for this 16 yr old and baby, etc. The plot is realistic and the characters are multidimensional, even if I wanted to shake the heroine more than once for her refusal to let anyone else help and some of her other choices.

    Rather far-fetched (what romance novels aren't?), but a light, enjoyable book.
