Read The Whole Way Home Online Free - A ferocious talent on the brink of making it big in Nashville must confront her small town past and an old love she’s never forgotten in this engaging novel—a soulful ballad filled with romance, heartbreak, secrets, and scandal from the author of Season of the Dragonflies.
Playing to packed houses while her hit song rushes up the charts, country singer and fiddler Jo Lover is poised to become a big Nashville star like her idols, Loretta, Reba, and Sheryl. To ensure her success, Jo has carefully crafted her image: a pretty, sassy, down-to-earth girl from small-town Virginia who pours her heart into her songs.
But the stage persona she’s built is threatened when her independent label merges with big-time Capitol Records, bringing Nashville heartthrob JD McCoy—her first love—back into her life. Long ago Jo played with JD’s band. Then something went wrong, they parted ways and took their own crooked roads to stardom. Now, Jo’s excited—and terrified—to see him again.
When the label reunites them for a show, the old sparks fly, the duet they sing goes viral, and fans begin clamoring for more—igniting the media’s interest in the compelling singer. Why is a small-town girl like Jo so quiet about her past? When did she and JD first meet? What split them apart? All too soon, the painful secret she's been hiding is uncovered; a shocking revelation that threatens to destroy her reputation and her dreams. To salvage her life and her career, Jo must finally face the past—and her feelings for JD—to become the true Nashville diva she was meant to be.

Maybe this comes because I just finished a succession of great books but I found this slow moving. Don't get me wrong: The story was entertaining but it did not grip me. I did not "have" to read the next chapter before falling asleep. I enjoyed the Nashville references, as it's one of my favorite...

This book is country in the greatest way. Ostensibly, it's about two country singers, Jo and JD, who have fallen out with each other as they left their hard scrabble lives and made it to success in the country music industry. They are each sympathetic, interesting characters and the book would be...

When I was a teen, one of my favorite movies was a movie called The Thing Called Love. It starred Samantha Mathis, Sandra Bullock, River Phoenix, and Dermot Mulroney, all trying to make it in the country music scene. At the time, I had little to no interest in country music at all, so that really...

Oooh, this was sweet. I just loved it. To be fair, I'm always a sucker for a southern romance and I also love books about fake celebrities, so this was right up my street. It was atmospheric and calm, dramatic without being ridiculous. The writing is straightforward and never meandering, but the...

I picked up this book because of it's Nashville setting and country music themes. And I loved that about it, but that's where my love for this book stopped. Every person in this book was stereotypical on the surface with nothing underneath. The moments in the book that should have been poignant a...
