Little Miss Eyes of Blue by Holly Tierney-Bedord is the Prequel to The Woman America Loves a Latte. I had a hard time putting down once I started reading. We get to learn more about Veloura and her life experiences in this book.At times I was very sad for her and others I was happy. Her parents ignored her but others more than made up for it.When she realizes there is much more to life what happens? Read this book to find out what happens next. I highly recommend reading this book and The Woman America Loves a Latte. I can’t wait to see what she comes out with next.
Little Miss Eyes of Blue is the prequel to The Woman America Loves a Latte by Holly Tierney-Bedord. This book for me was a hard read Poor Veloura. I do not like her parents Paul and Marla. In Little miss eyes of blue we get to know her parents a little better it shows us how they met and got married and had kids and shows us how Veloura grew up. You get a better understanding of why Veloura is the way she is. I love Vee and became very found of her. I was really excited to read more about her and get to understand her a little better. Holly Tierney-Bedord is a wonderful Author and I really enjoyed reading these books and I look forward to reading more from this Author. Thank you for taking me and everyone through this journey with Veloura.
Little Miss Eyes of Blue by Holly Tierney-Bedord
My rating 4 out of 5 stars
This book is the prequel to The Woman America Loves a Latte. This can be read as a standalone but I would recommend reading both, because there is so much story and information to get from both books. This book shared the story of Veloura’s life growing up and bless her heart she did have it rough.
Her mother is a piece of work and i have nothing good to say about her. I think her dad really did love and care for her, but I wish he would have fought a little more to see her or even have custody. I hate that she had to keep every little good thing that happened to her bottled up and somewhere safe she she would never forget those moments, because they were few and far between.
I kept hoping that Veloura’s school life would help, but the fact that her and her selfish mother moved so many times, it was hard for her to form lasting friendships. The terrible things she goes through in school at the hands of her classmates, and the fact that she still comes out as a smart, yet naive young woman, surprises me and makes me happy. This shows she can continue living the life she wants and she can find happiness no matter what crappy circumstances she was dealt.
Great book and I would definitely recommend reading both this book and The Woman America Loves A Latte.
A great read about money. Paul thinks he has landed the girl of his dreams when he marries Marla. But she is only interested in his money. When he quite a job at a candle factory to become a country music star, he hopes it will bring happiness and love back to their marriage. But all it does is cause further arguments from Marla. Will this save their marriage or make them drift apart?
A great read. Well developed plot. Well developed characters like Paul trying to follow his dream while still being a good father or Veloura as a sweet little kid but also wise. The only issue I would raise is that I felt Marla was too unfeeling and complained too much to be likeable as a character. A good use of a prequel to show how Veloura grew up into the person she is in the first novel.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with the candle factory and it’s sights and smells and sounds so vivid as if you were actually there. Or the park where he writes the song with the green grass and the birds and the squirrell for a sense of peace and quiet.
The switch of perspectives worked well to display both sides of the story and was easy to follow with names as chapter titles. I also liked the use of dates and times to show how time progressed and things changed between the characters. I also liked the use of letters in the novel excellent way of showing characters thoughts and feelings and also the feeling of miscommunication. Also loved the sense of foreboding throughout the novel that things may not work out well for the family, given what we know from the first novel which was wonderfully written Overall, a great read and I would give it four stars.
Little Miss Eyes of Blue was a good four star read and the prequel to The Woman America Loves a Latte. We go back to Vee’s childhood to learn about where she came from and what she dealt with growing up.
My emotions were all over the place. We get a glimpse into how Vee’s parents met and fell in love. And what happened that caused things to fall apart for them. We continue to move forward as Vee grows up, seeing some heart wrenching things happen to her. All I can say is her parents were terrible and only thought about themselves.
There is so much more to this story. Overall I liked this story, it gave me a glimpse into why Vee is the way she is today. Holly does a great job of keeping you aware of what time frame and characters are in each chapter, the detail is great as well. However, the ending has left me with some questions that I hope we see in one of the next books. 1-click and get started today.
Little Miss Eyes of Blue by Holly Tierney-Bedord was an okay read that ket my attention, but was a little hard to get in though, not the story, just some of the elements.
This book is a prequel to “The Woman America Loves a Latte”, and it tells the tale of the life Veloura was subjected to as a child, and what her parents were like before and after they married and had her. I can say, some people shouldn’t have kids. Veloura parents are not worth the air they breath. This book broke my heart for Veloura, and what mades it all the more depressing is that her little girls like her, are, and have, lived the life she has.
Overall this book will pull to your heart strings, and will keep you reading. So please take my high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will feel many things, and become a fan of this unique author.

Little Miss Eyes of Blue is the prequel to The Woman America Loves a Latte and it does a great job of diving it on Vee’s past. It paints a vivid picture that tweaks the heart and answers some questions about why she is how she is. At times this story is both heartbreaking and bold, which is exactly how I feel about Vee as well. This author has a talent of making the characters feel so real so easily and I love that. If you want a good book that is basically a character study then this is for you. Just be warned that it may change how you see the world around you.
This is the prequel to The Woman America Loves A Latte.
This is the story of Vee’s life from birth up to her meeting Thunder.
This story focuses mainly on her parents, her father struggling to make it as a famous star, her mother problems and attitude as she was gripped by drugs and the impact it had on Vee’s childhood.
I was a bit unsure about how this would work as some of her childhood is referred to the standalone novel The Woman America Loves A Latte, however i was pleasently surprised and i enjoyed reading about her journey which lead her to the life and the friends she has.

I enjoyed reading The Woman America Loves a Latte so I was looking forward to reading this prequel to that story and I’m glad I did. There are a lot of sad moments in this book but there are also some really sweet moments with wonderful characters. There are a myriad of characters in this story which made it that much more entertaining. I’m glad I got to know Vee better and where she came from. I highly recommend this book. I also really enjoy this author’s writing style.
- This is a must read it was really engaging and beautifully written story, even how it goes back and forwards in time it’s still easy to keep on track what’s happening. It had amazing character’s who you really grow to love as you read on. I was lost in the storyline completely caught up in the page’s but i find there’s nothing better then picking a novel up which you can just lose yourself in the words it takes you away from reality even if it’s just for abit. I loved every second and i can’t wait to read more from this author
