The Baxter Boys: Rattled #3

Two things stand in the way of Madison Cross realizing her dream of studying music performance and composition at a prestigious college: 

1) Her parents, who don’t understand or get her, and want her to attend a community college and settle on a career that will actually support her one day; and 
2) A private instructor. 

No music school is going to take her seriously with only middle and high school instruction, but she has never been given the opportunity for private instructions (see #1 above). Her one shot is convincing Mrs. Dosek, a well-respected pianist who teaches for free, but the woman won’t return an email, let alone talk to her. 

When Madison discovers a pink box of letters hidden in her parents’ attic, she’s consumed with wanting to know more about the woman who wrote them. Through reading the heartbreaking letters, Madison comes to learn more than she ever dreamed of about herself, but now she has to face her biggest fear, and it has nothing to do with college. She must learn where she came from in order to find out where she’s going.

My Thoughts

I was looking forward reading this book and I enjoyed until near end of it.
It was really disappointing to read the ending. It was abrupt and I wanted more of it. I think it was left opened for the next book but I wish it was a bit longer than that.

This story revolved in Madison's wish to have a private teacher and unfortunately the only one that can provides the opportunity for free is Mrs. Dosek. She was discontented because every time she played, Mrs. Dosek always went out. It felt like she was avoiding her. If only she knew how true that is. On one of the competition, Maddy decided to chase her and asked her to only be crushed. Her best friend wanted to cheer her up by going to her favorite ice cream shop. One thing led to another, Maddy got suspended and she was punished by her mum to clean up the house from top to bottom. Her punishment turned into something else. She found the pink box full of letters.

It was a great story overall and as a teenager myself, the story resembled closely to me in terms of behavior. Maddy had similar personality to me especially in sneaking out. She was so good in hiding and it was fun to read the chase.

The Baxter Boys: Rattled #2

Only three things matter to Kelsey Fry: an envelope full of memories, a pink box full of hope, and a well-planned future, soon to be realized. 

Alex Dosek knows that Kelsey needs more than the tattoo he gave her. She hoped to ink the memory of the daughter she gave up for adoption into her soul, but that wasn’t necessary. The memories were already there.

Who would have thought a house full of boys would be a refuge for Kelsey? The Baxter boys come to Kelsey’s rescue and all is well, but the past has a way of catching up with you, and Kelsey’s past reaches out with a phone call. The daughter she gave up for adoption is sick, and she needs something only Kelsey can give her.

It won’t be easy, but it will be necessary. Kelsey will look into the eyes of her daughter and then walk away, and take nothing with her but the letters she writes to her daughter on every holiday and every special occasion. In the evening, when she can’t sleep, she pours out her heart on paper.

When her daughter turns eighteen, Kelsey can reach out to her. Those are the rules. Not a moment before. But sometimes, the fates intervene. Or friends do. Call it what you will.

About the Author

Jane Charles is a USA Today Bestselling author who has lived in the Midwest her entire life. As a child she would more likely be found outside with a baseball than a book in her hand.

In fact, Jane hated reading until she was sixteen. Out of boredom on a long road trip she borrowed her older sister’s historical romance and fell in love with reading. She long ago lost count of how many fiction novels she has read over the years and her love for them never died. 

Along with romance she has a passion for history and the two soon combined when she penned her first historical romance. What turned into a hobby became a passion. In addition to historical romances, she has been pulled to write contemporary and has released two NA novels in her new series, Baxter Academy of Arts. She intends to continue writing both historical and contemporary.
