Robin Rae McAfee wants to be a songwriter.
One problem, though . . .she’s got stage fright, and bad. She can’t pick up guitar and sing with out hives and running stopping her.
What’s a Girl to do? What else but cross the border from Freedom, Alabama and go to Nashville, Tn—song writer's capital of the world. She leaves a so-so boyfriend and her job at a grocer behind and hightails it to NashVegas.
When she arrives, Robin’s got an apartment and a cousin in town to keep her company, so she heads it a café to sing her songs. But wait—she still has the same stage fright in Tennessee she had in Alabama!
But she’s gonna have to kick the fear out of her before Nashville kicks her out of her dreams.
I loved this book. I was a little sad when it came to the end, because Robin Rae seemed like a real friend. I didn’t want to say goodbye.
The author really knew how to describe the feeling of stage fright well, too well. I’ve had it, and believe me, it was an accurate description.
The story goes at a good pace—not too fast, not too slow. Robin is believable and likeable.
The family is a real Southern family, too. Homey and close, but not creepy perfect like a Stepford wife.
Robin fines out a lot on the way to her dreams, including a hot man named Lee and a secret her mother’s kept for over twenty years—but I obviously won’t tell you what! But I will say, it’s a doozy.
Filled with LOL laughs, tears, and cheers you’ll love Robin’s journey from cover to cover.
It’s a great summer read with a glass of iced tea—and maybe some Tim McGraw playing in the background, LOL.
I give it five stars.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Hmm, makes me curious. I write songs and love to sing but don't put me infront of a crowd - you'll probably hear a thousand frogs in my throat. But catch me off-beat and thats a different story...:) gr8 review.
