Zack Dylan has a dream. He wants to sing on the biggest stages, for the biggest crowds, and he'll do whatever it takes to make it come true. But Zack also made a promise to his college sweetheart when he left Kentucky to compete on the popular TV show Fifteen Minutes: If he made it, nothing would change him or his faith in God. Overnight, Zack becomes the nation's most popular contestant, a country singer comparable to a young Tim McGraw. As his star rises, Zack is often asked to compromise and quiet his beliefs. Just as he's on the verge of winning it all, his choices lead him to the brink of personal disaster. Meanwhile, a former Fifteen Minutes winner is searching for meaning amidst her own private losses. Can she warn Zack about the real price of fame? Or will Zack lose everything he loves for his fifteen minutes of glory?

My Thoughts:
As with all Ms. Kingsbury’s books, I look forward to each one. I was highly anxious to read this one. It’s kind of like American Idol meets County Music meets The Queen Of Christian Fiction. And it truly was. Opening the beginning of this book, I was instantly hooked. I became the characters and the story over took my life.

Ms. Kingsbury has blended faith, hope, love, and the need to seek self worth and created a story that will make you smile, laugh, and cry all in one sitting. Zach’s character was amazing. I loved reading his story. He was so strong in his faith and was so sure that everything would work out. And Reese. Bless her. I wanted hug her more times than I can count! She has struggles that I wanted to take from her!

This is an amazing 5 star worthy book and another hit by the fabulous Queen Of Christian Fiction! If you love a moving story with powerful messages, then this one is definitely a homerun for just that! I am a long time fan of Ms. Kingsbury, and I am looking forward to her next hit! Bring it on Ms. Kingsbury!
