“Thank you to Libro.fm for the ALC! Run, Rose, Run is about an aspiring country music artist who travels to Nashville to pursue her dreams. While on the rise, she begins to find her past creeping up on her, and must figure out what to do to survive. I absolutely adored this book! I wasn’t sure how I was going to like it. I hadn’t read anything by James Patterson before, but I’m a huge Dolly Parton fan, so I decided to try this and it exceeded my expectations. The audiobook was amazing (Dolly herself even narrated one of the characters) but I know that the print would be just as good. Fans of Taylor Jenkins Reid, and Rachel Hawkins, will love this book! ”
