Terrific cast performance, mind blowing ending.

I really enjoyed the benefits of a full cast on this book, especially Dolly. The story has multiple moments of danger. The main character makes some dangerous and stupid decisions and I found myself wondering what has this woman been through to be so bloody stubborn and reckless. Definitely NOT the ending I expected. My mind was blown. -Christina

Excellent! Loved it!

The story was sweet and entertaining. I enjoyed the narration of the full cast and Dolly Parton’s input. Would have loved it if the words of the songs were sung, rather than read

awful I had to return it

I've listened to over 400 books this is the worse, I really like dolly Parton thats why I got the book but couldn't carry on, the narration is very grating, the plot line is very poor and I'm sorry to say I couldn't listen to dolly she sounded like she was tripping over her false teeth, so so disappointed, I'm sorry if this is controversial just my opinion

Amazing

I love reading this book it’s taken me ages to listen to it but it feels like Dolly Parton is with you. It makes the book feel alive when she’s talking.

Fabulous

I loved this book, really enjoyed the story great narration & the characters were brought to life by the different actors. Am a big fan of Dolly Parton & country music- I live in the UK & have always wanted to go to Nashville - so I might have to book my ticket. Looking forward to the next book.

Why read it when you can have Dolly read it to you?

Loved the story and the performance. Was hoping a couple of the songs would have finished off the book. Highly recommend

slow and boring

I felt the story was slow and a bit boring. It was definitely not a page turner.

Easy listening

This was a great story to listen to, the characters voices really matched the parts they played. I enjoyed listening to Dolly Parton and I often thought some of the story maybe reflected her life a little. It was a pleasure to listen to.

Didn't expect to like it that much

Not my usual kind of (audio) book, but I couldn't put it down. Flowing story, no slow parts, suspense and mystery - I just wanted to keep listening. Sometimes a bit cheesy - but is that really a bad thing?

Mystery Meets Country

This story had all the mystery that only James Patterson can unfold, and is covered by country music knowledge that only Dolly Parton could add! A very enjoyable performance with a great story.
