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.

All the moxie in the world won't let this diva run any longer.

Can I just say I loved everything about this book? First of all, I'm always fascinated by the private lives of celebrities. I don't know why, but it makes them seem much more normal when they have lives just like the rest of us.

Aubrey has a private life, and she tries so hard to keep it private. She has her friends, her professional staff, her fiance, and now a reporter that is trying to get deep down in her soul.

I really appreciated that the author made us work a little to get Aubrey's background, rather than just coming out with it in the beginning. It really made the story more meaningful to get the background as it was relevant to Aubrey's current life.

This story begins with the last concert before a summer break, and we get to watch as Aubrey's life completely changes that summer. We get to watch God get a hold of her and really start working on her in all aspects of her life.

This story has heartbreak, drama, emotional suspense, and a wonderfully perfect ending. This story also brings with it the powerful message that God is in control - always. He uses any person, any circumstance, and any opportunity to work in our lives, and he worked in Aubrey James' for sure.

This book is definitely worth picking up. (This book was previously released as Diva NashVagas)
