Home (Glenview #1) by Rachel Smith #review




DONE and totally want to listen to country music. I think I maybe in love Lilly Rae and maybe acting out about that. I will go for some Carrie Underwood and then make up for it my listening to a lot of Drake and Lil Wayne.

About the book- ratings for 1

Characters- 5


The reveals that shocked me 5+

So the story of Lily reminds us that in Hollywood things are as crazy as they seem, right? OK well apparently in country music things are nutso too! When Lily takes off she is determined to get to Nashville from Iowa and never look back. She repeats her mantra over and over basically whatever it takes is what this feisty recent graduate is going to do. I am ready for the ride.


The story of Lillian’s time in Nashville was unbelievable. She meets an RCA executive, Colton, and he seems like an angel. Under it all he is so evil, manipulative and powerful. He is just pure evil through and through. I loved the way the author wrote Lily having her flashbacks. It was a slow build that was making it hard to put the darn kindle down.

Through everything Sarah,  who is a wanna be country music singer, and Lily grow close. Lily starts on the staircase leading to fame with Sarah by her side. Sarah is her confidant, personal assistant and therapist!

When Lily has an epiphany she gives up singing and goes home. All of this causes a big problem for Colton. No spoilers but I will say he was addicted to having a puppet to control and money in the bank.



When Justin sees Lily the first time you know what will happen. Their story was great! It is one to be enjoyed! I understand they wanted and needed one another so the way it was portrayed was nice. The didnt go overboard with the longing to be together. I hope that makes sense.



I really loved this book! The author has written a romance with a lot of dark circumstances. I like dark so when evil comes knocking I was rooting for the entire Raftzen family. A true tight knit group that make you want to go to Glenview!
