Book Tour and Giveaway ~ Home by Rachel Smith

After twelve years on top of the charts, country music
superstar Lily Rae has decided to hang up the microphone and move home.  Becoming Lillian Raftzen again is harder than
she anticipated and soon, it seems running home is not enough to escape from
her manipulative ex-agent, who not only threatens to end her happiness, but her

When the girl of his dreams walks back into his life twelve
years later, Justin DeLuca realizes as much as he loves her, she is no longer
the girl he remembers. With everything they must overcome, can the two of them
make their dreams come true?  Lily’s
dream to sing and Justin’s dream for a family are so very far from the same
path.  But by veering off course they
find a new dream on a new path ending up right where it all began…..home.


“I can’t do this anymore,” I said as I closed my eyes.  I grabbed my phone, pushed a couple buttons
and put it to my ear.
“Who are you calling?” Sarah asked.
I just shook my head and looked to the floor.  I heard the call be picked up on the other
“Lillian, it’s late, is everything okay?”
“Mr. Vangoal.  Sorry
to bother you at this hour.  I need to
meet with you immediately.  Can you be in
Des Moines, Iowa by tomorrow afternoon?” I asked.
Sarah’s eyebrows scrunched in confusion, likely wondering
why I was calling my lawyer at 11:30pm after having a nervous breakdown.
“I think that should be ok, Lillian.  I’ll have my secretary check in the morning
and let you know the details.  Are you in
some kind of trouble?” he asked.
“No trouble.  I just
need your help.”
“Okay,” he said, but I could hear the concern in his voice.
“Thank you.  And
please, this meeting needs to be confidential,” I stressed.
“As always, Miss Raftzen.
I’ll see you tomorrow.”   “Good
night Mr. Vangoal.”
I pushed the button to end the call and tossed my phone onto
the bed.
“Can you please share with me what the hell is going on?”
Sarah asked.
 I stood on shaky legs
and walked to make sure the door was securely locked.  As I turned around, I could see the worry on
Sarah’s face.  I was always so strong and
composed.  Very rarely did I fall
apart.  And when I did it was always when
I was completely alone.  But now, the
wetness that had hit my eyes was beginning to take form and fall down my cheeks
in a steady stream.
“I’m going to meet with my lawyer tomorrow afternoon in Des
Moines,” I said quietly.  “And together
we’re going to begin the process of me quitting the Country Music business.”
Oh my God,” Sarah


“I’m done.”  I
said.  Then the sob broke from my throat
and tore completely through my body.  In
between hiccupping breaths I looked at my best friend and said the words I
never thought I’d hear myself say, “I want to home.
