One More Song to Sing

More than two decades ago, Olivia Lovett left her old life behind in the red dirt of Oklahoma and forged a career in Nashville as a country music star. Now her voice is failing, forcing her to find a new dream just as the secrets of her past come knocking at the door. Long-time friend Andrew Grant agrees to partner in a new business venture—but would he stick around if he knew her whole story?

After the tragic loss of her father, twenty-one-year-old Ellie Evans headed to Nashville seeking more than just fame. For two years, she’s waitressed, strummed, and sung her way to what may finally be her big break when Olivia offers to sign her to the budding record label. More than anything, Ellie just wants to be seen: by her future fans, by Nick Perry—a fellow musician with a killer smile and kind eyes—and above all else, by the mother who abandoned her. If the spotlight never shines on her, will Ellie ever feel whole?

One More Song to Sing is a romantic drama about the power of forgiveness, second chances, and a God who never fails to see us.

"This novel is a keeper! Endearing characters hit all the right notes and feel like lifelong friends -- or, at least, readers will want them to be. Nashville becomes a charming secondary character of sorts, sharing its spotlight with the intriguing ins and outs of the country music industry. Behind the sweet romance and the rising star plot, however, is the real star of this show -- a tender message of belonging and forgiveness that leaves behind a lingering melody of grace." - RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

“Charming, full of melody and lyrical prose, Harrell pens a solid debut. Scenes from Nashville and the country music world are spot on and will delight fans of women's fiction, romance and music.”

“One More Song to Sing will have your heart singing. As if fresh off the set of the television series Nashville, this book captured me from the first strum of Ellie's guitar with the drama of a young singer reaching for her dreams only to discover so much more. Harrel has a way with words that made me feel the music, hear the roar of the crowd, taste the angst of fragile hearts and long for a happy ending. Like a love song that weaves inside and fills you with hope, this beautifully written, heart-tugging story about loss, second chances and God's providential grace in the darkest of circumstances will linger with you long after the sweet ending. A brilliant debut novel!”
