So, I knew I had to come back to this story.
Nevertheless, I couldn’t leave this book, which had piqued my curiosity, unfinished.
First of all, the design of the book is cool. Each chapter opens with a blurb about the superstar we’re stepping into the life of. Which I’ve always thought would be neat, being a superstar for a day
~ Picture Molly Shannon’s Superstar and that’s probably how I’d be.
Anyway, it took me a minute to get used to the style of the book. 1st person POV aside… let me elaborate, I’ve got a superstar country singer who lives with her fiancee – and this is Christian fiction?
But I’m not a supporter of living together before marriage ~ though many people in this day and age are. I’m just excited that someone – and her publisher is willing – is writing about a character that reflects REAL LIFE.
You may be saying – Christy, there are lot’s of CBA books that address this and other issues like this.
I won’t summarize the book. But I will tell you I enjoyed it. I will tell you my favorite scene is Scott teaching Aubrey to drive in Scott’s dad’s old Jeep. A riot! You’ll have to read the book to know what I’m talking about.
Then I discoveredRachel Hauck’s blog – where she talks about writing Diva NashVegas. Good writerly information. I was really interested on how much research she had to do to make this story so real. And to me, a wannabe, that’s what this story was. It felt real and that’s our job as authors.
