Description

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.

Reading Guides

Reading Group Guide

  1. In the beginning of the book, Aubrey drove herself to the point of exhaustion. Have you ever become so involved in a project you've neglected your health?
  2. Aubrey accepts Car's engagement ring. What was the significance behind her acceptance? Do you think she was really in love with him?
  3. What signaled to Aubrey that Car did not really "know" her?
  4. Piper said Aubrey was more than the collection of boxes left in the library. What did she mean? Is there "stuff" in your life you're clinging to?
  5. What legacy did Aubrey's parents leave? What is the significance of the song Aubrey's mother sings to her in her dreams?
  6. Why was Aubrey able to be vulnerable with Scott during the interviews?
  7. What did Car's family represent to Aubrey? What did Scott's family represent? Which was more important?
  8. Why did Aubrey lie to Jennifer about her name? Why did Aubrey want to use a false name for foster care then perpetuate the lie? Do you know anyone who is hiding behind a label?
  9. Peter refused to acknowledge his sister because of his painful memories. Is there someone in your life you avoid because of the past? Do you consider seeking them out so you can reconcile?
  10. The most common fear people share in America is the fear of public speaking. Nearly everyone has fears and phobias. In the novel, Aubrey won't drive. From where do you think her fear stems?
  11. Melanie betrays Aubrey's friendship when she talks to the tabloids, yet at the end of the book Aubrey forgives her. Have you ever felt betrayed? How did you (or how would you like to) handle it?
  12. We are a society of consumerism and convenience. We often think we need more. Aubrey appeared to have it all: success, fame, and fortune. What did she lack?
  13. Did Aubrey remind you of someone in your life? Did this story compel you to take any action that you heretofore hadn't considered?
