The skill of a suspense writer co-authors with a country music legend who has been there and done that. She certainly knows of which she speaks. For any country music want-to-be, for the reader this book could possibly offer some advice on navigating the basics of “making it big” in country music. Maybe. But first the reader must follow the story step by step. Picking out here and there the nuggets of wisdom from the country music celebrity’s spoken experience. However, this book is like going to ‘Dollywood’ and riding the most fearsome and ferocious roller coaster then living to tell about it. Experiencing the great soaring heights but quickly free falling to a near death experience. Part of the coaster ride is making your way through a weed patch of character’s lies and suppressed hidden pasts. Suspenseful, danger filled, and for those who really need it, romance.

Library of Congress annotation:
“AnnieLee Keyes is hitchhiking her way to Nashville, determined to make it in the music industry. But she’s fleeing her past, and her rise as a country music star is dogged by the dark secrets trying to destroy her. Violence and strong language.”
I am almost sure the print version is compelling but the audiobook has a full cast of voice actors giving this book great depth. My recommendation: Read it or listen to it. You’ll like it.
