    1. This was a nice, sweet story, with a little mystery and suspense thrown in. I listened to the Audible version and it was a good choice. The narration was alright and the story was straightforward enough that I could listen while doing other things and I didn't get lost.McKenna leaves her legal career in New York City, heading to a small town in Kentucky to hide out. She's on the run after seeing a horrible crime being committed at the hands of her boyfriend, her firm's senior partners and severa [...]


    2. FREE on US today (5/15/2016)Stand-alone book 1.BLURB:McKenna Mason, a New York City attorney with a love of all things Prada, is on the run from a group of powerful, dangerous men. McKenna turns to a teenage crush, Will Ashton, for help in starting a new life in beautiful horse country. She finds that Will is now a handsome, successful race horse farm owner. As the old flame is ignited, complications are aplenty in the form of a nasty ex-wife, an ex-boyfriend intent on killing her, and a feisty [...]


    3. This book went from promising to annoying so quickly, it still has my head spinning, days after having read this book. The premise and the general plot is good. But the execusion is below par. What this book sorely needs, is a good editor who isn't afraid to tell the author when her writing sucks, and it needs some serious and heavyhanded editing. It really does have good parts, and it starts off with a really great plot. But somehow, for 80% of the book, that plot is ignored. Instead the author [...]


    4. Reading books like this always makes me question how delusional writers are. And I'm not talking dragons here, no siree! I'm talking about those wonderful women who bless us with instalove. Guess what, fuck you all!Meet McKenna (sorry, Kenna) something, who's a lawyer on the run, because she stumbled upon some sex ring involving her ex-boyfriend and other powerful people in New York. Or something like that. No, really, this sex ring scandal comes up about 80% in. Till you reach that point in the [...]


    5. I was only mildly impressed by this piece. There is some interesting material in the first installment of the Bluegrass series but I also feel there is significant room for improvement. Be warned, the following commentary contains spoilers. To my mind, this is what you would get after combining Sweet Home Alabama, Did You Hear About the Morgans?, Legally Blonde and Secretariat. That is a whole lot of plot. So many storylines present a hodgepodge collection of clashing components, the end result [...]


    6. This book is an example of why people shouldn't get impatient and rush to publish their own books. The writer and the story have potential, bute problems really were unfortunate and would have been dealt with by a professional editor or perhaps the author herself if she set it aside for an extended period. The problems: 1. Too many glaring grammar and spelling errors and 2. Contrived conflicts and resolutions that were too convenient. Perhaps someone in a new relationship would be insecure enoug [...]


    7. After celebrating her 29th birthday with friends, McKenna returns to her New York law firm late one night to collect some papers. What she discovers is some serious heavy hitters including partners, senators, judges and her boyfriend gang raping a woman. These powerful men think nothing of killing to protect their reputation and McKenna needs to be silenced. She withdraws all her money and takes flight, finally landing in a small town in Kentucky where she meets Will, a breeder of champion race [...]


    8. This was such an enjoyable break from some of the heavier stuff I have been reading. I love all that crazy, heavy reading but sometimes it's good to settle into light-hearted romance.Kathleen Brooks' Bluegrass State of Mind was just the book I needed. It is full of endearing characters in a 'Mayberry' type small town who seem to embrace you as they embrace the main character, McKenna.McKenna and her friend Danielle witness a crime perpetrated by McKenna's boyfriend and the law partners from her [...]


    9. 5 Bluegrass State of Mind Stars - ❤ Audible Review HERE ❤I read this book back in 2014, and this town has stuck with me. So I had to do a re-read to see if I liked it as much as I remembered and I have to say I liked it even more. McKenna is so down to earth, and I love that she is soo a city girl but she adapts to country life without a hick up. She had to leave the city, and is on the run as is her best friend Danielle they have seen somethings that put them in danger.I loved the tension a [...]


    10. A storyline with potential BUT the robotic sentence structure throughout this book drove me over the wall. I just could not get comfortable with the style - or lack thereof."It is going well.""I am sorry, I wish I could go with you right now.""I am glad I ran into you."The characters were well-crafted and I actually really liked them. There are two crimes to solve and you're kept wondering if they are related. There's an ex-wife who brings a whole new definition to the word "bitchy." It's one of [...]


    11. Slick's review posted on Guilty Pleasures4 StarsI’ll admit that I love free books, who doesn’t? Free books are a gamble, a lot of times you miss but sometimes you hit and boy did I hit with Bluegrass State of Mind by Kathleen Brooks. I enjoyed this one so much that I immediately went to and downloaded the next two and I’m so glad I did! These are three books you will want to read back to back because the stories are very connected and you’ll want to see how everything all works out.McKe [...]


    12. This was pretty much terrible. Incredibly boring and completely outlandish. A Sheik in Kentucky? Hanging with the locals? Um, no. Apparently, Kenna is the Bella Swan of Kentucky because within 5 minutes of being in town all the men are in love with her and all the women want to be her friend. She is perfect in every way *massive eye roll*There are just too many things going on in this book without anything really happening. At least 50% of the book could have been cut cause they were all these g [...]


    13. Here's another book I discovered on my Nook from most likely a free download. I was a bit daunted when I opened it to see over 600 pages listed but decided that would be okay if the story was good. While the story line was definitely intriguing there were quite a few things about the book that turned me off.First, the typos. It's sad that I've gotten to the point of cringing every time I open a book and see it was published through Smashwords, but unfortunately there's a reason for that. Unneces [...]


    14. Bluegrass State of Mind was available for a free Kindle ebook, I decided to try it out. I'm glad I did! There are two more in the series that I am more than willing to buy now that I've gotten a taste of Kathleen Brooks and her slightly off beat, endearing characters.The beginning catches your attention with suspense but light-hearted situations soon follow. Brooks is able to successfully mix a touch of intrigue with humor and quirkiness. The ecclectic cast of characters are the driving force be [...]


    15. I struggled over giving this book a 1 or 2. I decided to be generous with the 2. Several times, I was tempted to leave the story unfinished, but I'm odd that way. A book has to really stink for me not to finish it. This one almost made it.First of all, where did the editor go? Surely this book didn't have one. It doesn't normally bother me to come across a few glaring mistakes, but this book was full of them. So distracting!Secondly, there was way too much description and repeating of informatio [...]


    16. If you are looking for a book that will make you laugh and have you biting your fingernails anticipating what happens next, Bluegrass State of Mind is for you. Kathleen Brooks starts of the Bluegrass Series with a heartwarming tale of a good old boy town in Kentucky. Kenna, a lawyer on the run for her life after seeing something she shouldn’t have comes into the small Kentucky town hoping to stay hidden and get the Assistant DA job. I love how the town rallies behind her and adopts her as one [...]


    17. About halfway through this book I began to suspect that the Kentucky Tourism Board sponsored this book to counteract all the negative publicity from Justified. Apparently everything is wonderful in Kentucky! Come enjoy the Kentucky Derby and William Shatner and the lowest number of fathers with unpaid child support in the country! The book actually mentions these facts and not a bad thing is ever said about Kentucky. It's a paradise on earth full of attractive men who want to take care of helple [...]


    18. This is a first in a series of 3 books. As a Kentucky girl, I loved this tale of life and love in a small central Kentucky town. McKenna is a strong, level-headed woman who despite facing the loss of her job, and threats to her life, decides to fight the institution that has wronged her. She flees New York City to a Southern town where her first love Will Ashton lives. In this small southern town, McKenna meets a group of people who adopt her as their own and help protect her and keep her safe. [...]


    19. Reread this 4 years later and my opinions haven't changed. It's corny and long winded but still really enjoyable.Original review:Kindle freebie from .Ok, where to start?This book is no show and all tell. I'm going to quote a bit of dialogue for you that should be a pretty good example of the issue:"Really? She broke you? I don't mind you telling her, as I figured the subject was going to come up. But, I was hoping I could seduce her before we got to serious conversation. But, my curiosity is piq [...]


    20. Vikki’s MusingsWhile searching for a light read with audio version for $1.99, I found this book. Since it’s in the Kindle Unlimited program, I decided to download the book and the audio. I thoroughly enjoyed this light-hearted story.McKenna Mason is a high-powered attorney in NYC. She accidentally finds out what the boy’s night parties are all about and has to run for her life. She goes to Kingston, Kentucky where her young girl crush lives, hoping he’ll put a good word in with the distr [...]


    21. McKenna Mason is on the run from powerful people with even more powerful friends. Although it's been more than half a lifetime ago, she decides to seek out Will Ashton, someone she knew for a week when she was only 13. She finds him in a small town, that just so happens to be looking for an assistant DA, a position she is ready to jump into. While she is slow to trust Will, and there are plenty of misunderstandings (mostly centering on Will's ex-wife) she finds herself drawn into his life. Will [...]


    22. 2 star story. Great narration by Eric Dove! (audible whispersync review)This story was just okay. It was missing a lot of elements, especially for a romance book. Particularly the romance, it was so forced and unbelievable. There was not connection, no chemistry, no depth, nothing. It was like they decided they love each other. There is no sexual tension or sex in this book. A couple of kisses and a little petting that is about it.I also found that for someone "hiding/running" for her life sure [...]


    23. So, I like the story okay. But a few things are driving me nuts. First, The reason she left NYC was a little over the top for me. Second-- More than that, though, is that the romance between the h/h feels so forced. They see each other for 5 minutes a few times and have one dinner together and all of a sudden it's serious?!?!? Please. Third-- Mostly though, the writing drives me nuts. It's too formal to read. I feel like I can't relax with the characters. Plus she does one of my pet peeves, she [...]


    24. On the Nook this novel has 624 pages. This is a full length romantic suspense novel with enough mystery to keep you reading the next two books in the series. McKenna Mason, a New York City attorney with a love of all things Prada, is on the run from a group of powerful, dangerous men. McKenna turns to a teenage crush, Will Ashton, for help in starting a new life in beautiful horse country. She finds that Will is now a handsome, successful race horse farm owner. As the old flame is ignited, compl [...]


    25. The characters in this book were a little too stereotypical and some of the plot line was a little farfetched. The small town setting was also very formulaic and "Mayberry RFDish". It had several sexual scenes that included "way too much information" for my taste. Also a lot of name dropping as far as clothes, shoes etc that unless you are a "fashionista" didn't mean much of anything. Both of the aforementioned didn't add to the story. If you are looking for a romance it's a quick read. There ar [...]


    26. BLUEGRASS STATE OF MINDI enjoyed this book, but I had a problem with the main premise. McKenna ran, hid (But she did not really hide her identity), and never notified law enforcement-seems very improbable. Otherwise-a good book.


    27. I expected to love this book in a guilty-pleasure "this was SO cheesy, but fun" kind of way. I was looking for something light and easy and I really didn't expect it to be great literature. The plot was something I knew would be relatively formulaic, but was a solid plot idea. I was sadly disappointed. As others have mentioned, she needed a very heavy-handed editor. The rest of this review is basically just me venting about everything that I found unbelievable and terrible. First and foremost-th [...]


    28. My own fault. I read another 'Bluegrass' book, some time ago and found it pretty sickly, but this was free and I had forgotten about the previous one and I was in desperate need for something warming and comforting. (The non-fiction books I am reading at the moment -though wonderful- keep reducing me to tears at the most inconvenient times)So, Chick-lit. Easy on the eyes in more ways than one. Until I realised that the writing was clichéd beyond cliché. (view spoiler)[Parents who had died in [...]


    29. So, when I was in 5th grade, I remember writing a book with my BFF. We never finished it, of course, but the writing in this one reminds me of our prowess at that time. It reads like a 5th grader wrote it. Either there was no editor at all, or the editor who read it needs to be fired. Horrible. Constant misuse of there vs. their, where vs. were, your vs. you're Every single page for the first half had at least one point where I skipped over parts to keep myself from gagging at the ridiculousness [...]


    30. Don't you love that feeling when a book just clicks? Bluegrass State of Mind was that kind of book for me. It was fun, cute, sexy and had just enough mystery and suspense to keep you hooked. McKenna Mason is the perfect type of main character. She was a little feisty, but completely genuine. She really wanted to do what was right even if it meant putting her life in danger. I love characters who are willing to stand up for a cause because that is how I like my friends. Her and Will have insta-ch [...]
