Review: Nashville Sweetheart by Rachel Hauck
"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."
I have enjoyed every book that I have read by Rachel Hauck, so I was excited to have an opportunity to review Nashville Sweetheart. I did not realize at first that this is not a new book by Rachel Hauck, but a book that she had written back in 2007 under the title of Diva NashVegas. It is a good story about courage, faith, and being true to yourself in any circumstance even when you are a wealthy, famous, country superstar. It was an easy read and had some really great moments of fun and laughter between Aubrey and Scott. I especially liked the basketball game and the cooking lesson.
It was not as good as some of the newer books that I have read. There was a lot of back and forth between the characters that at times left me confused as to who was speaking, although that could have been something strange with the formatting of my ebook. There were some parts of the story that I didn't feel had enough resolution such as the relationship that Aubrey has with her brother. And the ending was very predictable although it was a good ending with the happily ever after which I always enjoy.
