Nashville Sweetheart was a really cute book and I enjoyed reading it. In fact, just when I thought things were getting “good”, my Nook decided it was time to die and I was devastated that I had to take a break from reading to charge it up again!
Nashville Sweetheart is about Country Diva Aubrey James. She is 30 years old and has been touring for the last 11 years. The book begins with her performing what was going to be her last show of the tour before a break – a break she desperately needed as she has been working herself to the point of exhaustion. Her socialite boyfriend ends up surprising her on stage and proposing to her.
When one of her ex-band members decides to start running her mouth about Aubrey – even though the stories she tells are true – Aubrey decides it might just be time to start doing interviews again, even though for a long time she has kept very private and tried to stay out of the media.
She ends up telling a local show, Inside NashVegas, that she will give them the exclusive. But when the interviewer she thinks she is going to be working with is pregnant and on bed rest, she ends up having to work with the Sports reporter instead – who had previously asked her to a party and then ditched her.
He asks her questions that ends up with her questioning herself. Is she bring true to herself? Should she focus more on the faith she used to have but has seemed to have lost?
While a bit predictable at time, it was a cute story and I really enjoyed it. I couldn’t finish it fast enough!
What do you do when the past you’ve been dodging shows up at your door with cameras rolling?
Aubrey James ruled the charts as the queen of country for over a decade. She’d rocketed to fame in the shadow of her parents’ death—both of them pioneers in gospel music. But while her public life—high-profile romances and fights with Music Row execs—made for juicy tabloid headlines, the real and private Aubrey has remained a media mystery.
When a former band member betrays Aubrey’s trust and sells an “exclusive” to a tabloid, the star knows she must go public with her story. But Aubrey’s private world is rocked when the Inside NashVegas interviewer is someone from her past—someone she’d hoped to forget.
