About the Book
Book: Night Songs
Author: Jennifer Sienes
Narrator: Christa DelSorbo
Genre: Christian Women’s Fiction
Release date: June, 2022
What’s a girl to do when her life sounds ripped from the lyrics of a country music song?
Charlotte Van Cleave’s hissy-fit reaction to her husband’s infidelity sours her world like a pot of boiled chitlins. She’s left with no husband, no job, and no home—well, besides the dilapidated farmhouse inherited from her nana.
But Charlie learned early that southern girls dig deep when things go sideways. She’d climbed out of the mire when her missionary parents were killed in Congo, endured two late-term miscarriages, and survived the death of her nana and papaw. Too poor to paint and too proud to whitewash, Charlie follows a new path with her interior design skills.
Derek Daniels spent his life serving his country until a helicopter accident ended his military career. Now back home on the family farm, he’s stuck between his philandering brother, Nicky, and the only girl he’s ever loved—sweet Charlie Van Cleave. Unwilling to cross a line, he vows to keep his feelings to himself. Easier said than done when Charlie discovers a mystery surrounding her parents’ death and asks him to help investigate.
What’ll Charlie and Derek have to do to turn those lyrics into a country hit?

Guest Review from Anne
|Not having read any books by Jennifer Sienes, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But I enjoyed Night Songs, the first book in The Bedford County Series and am looking forward to other books in the series. Southern charm, a damsel in distress (big time distress–country music type distress!), a hero challenged by circumstances but wanting to help, and a long-time mystery waiting to be solved–what more could a reader who likes contemporary romance stories ask for? The author created realistic and relatable characters–characters who are normal everyday folk with struggles and dilemmas that need to be solved. I like how faith in God is brought out in a personal way, recognizing that He is there in the struggles and the joys of life. I listened to an audio version of the book and Christa DelSorbo did a great job narrating Charlie’s journey to trusting God to fix her brokenness. I was given a complimentary copy of the audiobook through Celebrate Lit and was not required to write a positive review. The opinions are my own.|
About the Author
Jennifer Sienes holds a bachelor’s in psychology and a master’s in education, but discovered life-experience is the best teacher. She loves Jesus, romance and writing—and puts it altogether in inspirational contemporary fiction. Her daughter’s TBI and brother’s suicide inspired two of her three novels. Although fiction writing is her real love, she’s had several non-fiction pieces published in anthologies—two in Chicken Soup for the Soul. She has two grown children and one very spoiled Maltese. California born and raised, she recently took a step of faith with her real-life hero and relocated to Tennessee.
About the Narrator
Speaking Life into Story
Queen of the one-eyebrow quirk, Christa DelSorbo auditioned for the role of Tarzan’s mom and has the photos to prove she ended up as the only cast member in a literal cast. These days, they keep her stuck in a box with a ball on a stick and only feed her when she reads another chapter of another fabulous book. She loves every minute. Or so they tell her. *eyebrow slowly raises *
