If you haven't read The Gift yet here is the synopsis:
Beautiful Maggie Mae Williams, a singer in a country-rock band from Boston, is an aspiring bluegrass mandolinist. While on a trip to New Orleans to visit her former college roommate, Maggie meets Zak Robichaud and Justin Boudreau, two musicians in the Cajun blues/rock band the Bayou Blasters. Maggie quickly falls in love with Zak, the dazzling lead guitarist. Despite her parents’ reservations and a warning from Zak’s ex-girlfriend Jacqueline, Maggie moves in with Zak and Justin into their bungalow near Lafayette, Louisiana. They begin music careers that lead to success beyond their wildest dreams, Maggie with her bluegrass band Little Maggie, and Zak and Justin with the Bayou Blasters. But Maggie and Zak find it difficult to balance the demands of their careers with those of their personal lives. As the pressures of touring start taking their toll, Maggie finds herself increasingly attracted to Justin, the steady and reliable bass player who is able to offer her emotional support when she needs it the most.
"The Sweetest Gift" is the sequel to the novel "The Gift" and continues the story of Maggie Mae Williams, singer/songwriter and bluegrass mandolinist:
It has been five years since the end of the first book. Maggie has found out that her husband Zak, the charismatic lead guitarist of the Cajun blues/rock band the Bayou Blasters, has been having an affair with their children's nanny. Maggie divorces Zak and moves to Nashville to live with her music partner Tucker Travis. After winning several Grammy awards, Maggie and Tucker have become famous as the King and Queen of Country music. They are engaged and about to be married, when Justin, the former bass player in Maggie's bluegrass band Little Maggie, returns from his self-imposed five year exile. He has finally decided to reveal a secret that turns everyone's world upside down and causes Maggie to reassess the direction of her life.
