Run, Rose, Run, Week 1

Welcome to Week 1 of the Online Book Club discussion of Run, Rose, Run by James Patterson and Dolly Parton.

The Online Book Club, if you've never joined us before, is a book discussion group that takes place entirely online. Each week, I write a new blog post that talks about different aspects of the book, and you can interact directly with me and other readers by leaving your comments. Check back each week and see what new topics we're talking about.

Run, Rose, Run follows two women: AnnieLee Keyes, an up-and-coming singer who is desperate to get her big break in Nashville and Ruthanna Ryder, a country music superstar who is interested in retiring from the music business. The lives of both of these women overlap and readers soon realize that both women are hiding secrets. Will each women's secrets overwhelm them, or will they be able to fight back against the demons from their past? 

Because this book is so new, it doesn't have a movie version...yet. But, you can enhance your reading experience by listening to the album of original songs Dolly Parton created to go with the book. Check out the video above if you'd like to hear one of the songs! 

We're reading the first 32 chapters for next week. I can't wait to hear your thoughts in the comments!
