ABOUT THE BOOK: Even if you are not a lover of country music, you can enjoy this fun look at the Nashville entertainment industry.What do you do when the past you’ve been skirting 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.All the moxie in the world won’t let this Diva run any longer.
“Hauck once again takes us into the country music world, this time through the experiences of mega-star Aubrey James. Aubrey’s life journey is filled with flaws, as well as a great deal of joy, and real life locales makes this highly original story authentic. The extra tidbits – from Aubrey’s liner notes to quotes from the “media” at the beginning of the chapters – add extra sparkle to the plot.”- 4 Stars, Melissa Parcel, Romantic Times Book Club
Diva NashVegas’ characters are real life. From the opening chapter, I could feel what it was like being onstage with Aubrey James at the CMA Fest. I can feel her slight dissatisfaction with her fiancee through her subtle actions. The character of Scott, seems to be like the All-American, sports-minded male. Aubrey seems to be the starlet we all wished we were friends with. I imagine a Carrie Underwood type, fast forward a few years.
