It’s been a while since I’ve read any James Patterson and I’ll tell you why Run Rose Run was such a good choice to jump back into his work.
Why I chose to read Run Rose Run:
This was a book that #bookstagrammademedoit and it did not disappoint! I’ve seen plenty of fellow bookstagrammers talk about this book and I promptly added to cart. I love a quick read that sucks me in and grabs my attention. I know it’s good when I can read on the couch at the same time my husband is watching a movie and I’m not distracted at all. Is that a thing with anyone else??
What is the book about?
The storyline of the book tracks a young rising country star that comes to Nashville, partly to follow her dream and partly to escape her past. The majority of the book keeps her dark secrets from the past before, of course, revealing at the end where she truly came from and the details of the life she left behind.
Along the way, she runs into a few lucky people who are in the biz and take her under their wing. Of course there are cliffhangers, budding love, and unexpected drama, but if you’ve ever read anything from James Patterson, you’ve probably come to expect as much.
Even though I’ve never been a huge Dolly fan, (stop shouting at me! I’ve got nothing against her, I just never really dove into country music) I loved the way the Nashville music scene was played out as well as certain characters that you could tell could only be written by experience.
My review of Run Rose Run
The end seemed just a tad rushed and slightly predictable, so I gave this book a solid 3 stars! A great book to restart my Patterson reading and remind why I’ve spent so much time in his catalog.
