I have been fortunate that so many readers took the time to drop me a line, just to say how much they enjoyed one or more of my books. That is the most gratifying thing about being a writer.

"I received a great new book in the mail last week and I just have to share this with you! The book is called Guitars & Cadillacs (from the SoundMaster Romance Series), written by Sabine Keevil. I read the first couple of pages, fully intending to put the book down and review it when I had more time. The book was so good, I couldn't put it down! Needless to say, I read the whole book that day ( I'm a fast reader) and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series, which will be released in the spring. Guitars and Cadillacs is about a Country superstar and a radio announcer who meet on the worst of terms and chronicles how building a relationship with a public icon isn't the easiest thing to do, especially when the parties concerned have skeletons in their closet. If you'd like to own a copy of this book (which I highly recommend) please go to http://www.thinkingdogpublishing.com/." -Marti Clayton ThatsCountry.com

"It’s actually pretty good!"
-Nancy Hengstman (the Author’s mother-in-law)
"Sabine Keevil has constructed the perfect fantasy romance in her novel Guitars & Cadillacs, the latest in the Soundmaster Romance Series. The romance between country super-hunk Colton "Mr. Right" Wright and radio personality Reanne Parker is right out of a storybook, complete with passionate fighting and equally passionate reconciliation. At the same time, she appeals to that part of us that longs to see the behind-the-scenes footage of celebrity lives."

"Ms. Keevil is a good storyteller. I'll say that right out. She has a good grasp of storyline, she's succinct and to the point, her characters are engaging, and she knows where she's taking them... The story is of Colton Wright, country music superstar (ala Garth Brooks, an on-stage maniac in an oversized cowboy hat), and Reanne Parker, Nashville morning DJ."

Long Way Home
Book Review by Tammy R. Phillips
Author Sabine Keevil proves that she is a woman who knows how to bring fantasies to life with simple words printed on a page. Combining her natural ability to tell a good story with a touch of mystery, suspense, and romance, her latest book release, Long Way Home, becomes a novel that is hard to put down.
In Long Way Home, the followup to the previously released Guitars & Cadillacs, Keevil shares the story of record company heiress Victoria Masters and bad boy rock star Calder McKnight, known more commonly to his fans as the "Dark Knight." Masters arrives in Nashville to clean up a publicity nightmare caused by McKnight's band, Knight Rider, while McKnight comes to town with the intentions of trying to salvage his career.
Before a face-to-face meeting has time to take place, however, both find themselves in a different kind of meeting at a local park. Calder doesn't realize the cute new girl he's met is the head honcho who has just released him from his recording contract, and Victoria doesn't realize the simple cowboy who caught her eye is actually the infamous "Dark Knight" without his normal stage attire.
The twists and turns are many, but the end result is a deep and abiding love found when least expected.
For a little background information on the author, Sabine wrote her first novel when she was only 14 years old. She adds that she has had stories and characters running around in her mind for as long as she can remember. "I've never been at a loss for ideas," Keevil commented in a recent interview. "On the contrary, they're crowding my mind, fighting for space. Sometimes it's a song that makes you wonder what kind of a story could be behind it, a newspaper article, a comment I overhear. Anything. Writers play a constant game of 'what if' – what if this happened or that, and we take it from there."
The theme of country music in her SoundMaster Romance Series comes from a lifetime of enjoying music. "I'm definitely a country music fan foremost," she has said, "and that's what my radio is tuned to on any given day, but I'm also open to listening to all kinds of different music and to be influenced by it – from opera to rock-n-roll. If you were to look through my admittedly vast CD collection, you'd find everything from Abba to ZZ top to Sinatra and James Last. And, of course, a huge country collection."
Due to her ability to relate to country fans, readers are certain to enjoy the "ultimate fantasy," as she has labeled it, of being swept away into a world where dreams really do come true. Both books, Long Way Home and the first in the series Guitars & Cadillacs, are available at www.thinkingdogpublishing.com (link below). If you're looking to escape into a world of romance the downhome southern way, Sabine Keevil is the author to take you away.
