The pampered diva is about to meet her match
Songbird Gloria Houghton has always needed to be the center of attention, but the spotlight has shifted. Seeking fame and a fresh start, she finds a new stage in Branson, Missouri…only to risk being replaced by a manipulative rival. If Gloria can’t be the star, who is she?
Jack-of-all-trades Nick Sherwood is just one leaf on a vast family tree that includes a restaurant chef, hotel owners, and even the headline act at a family-owned theater. He’s seen how fame can blind a person with jealousy and is more than content to stay in the background thank you very much. If only he wasn’t so fascinated--and irritated--by the newest addition to the staff.
After a disaster of a first impression and financial difficulties land Gloria in the humblest of jobs—with Nick as her boss—it might be time for her to learn to sing a new song.

Maybe it was time for her to say goodbye to musical theater too and focus on singing instead.
“I hope you find what you’re looking for.” Liz smiled and then drifted away toward one of the wings, leaving Gloria alone at center stage.
Her voice could be her magic ticket to the future. But where?
She didn’t necessarily want a solo act, so those television audition shows to find the next voice were out of the question. And while actresses flocked to Hollywood or New York City, most singers usually ended up in Nashville—only to get lost in the crowd of hopefuls.
Gloria slowly paced the polished boards of the stage. Where could she get in the door and meet musical people who could take her places? She needed to find an abundance of shows where lots of tourists came. Vegas? No way. She shuddered at the thoughts of drunk tourists, the skimpy costumes to satisfy the gamblers, and the “What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas” slogan.
Even she had personal standards. But where else should she go?
Dani would tell her to pray about it. Liz too. For all the good praying would do.
But, God, if You even exist, please give me a stage.
Four hours later, she sprawled on the couch of her shared apartment with an ice pack on her throbbing knee and a late-night talk show on the television screen. The host finished his monologue, then introduced a new performing group with an act fresh from the strip in Branson, Missouri.
They had shows there?
Her fingers flew across the screen of her phone, revealing a row of theaters where dozens of musical variety shows catered to thousands of tourists. And judging by the list of names, the town had a reputation for quality music, even if it slanted toward country.
If she made her name known there, who knew where she could end up?
Yes, the time had come for a change of scenery. She’d stick it out for one more show, but come spring she’d reign over a new stage and be one step closer to her dreams.
