    It has been a while since I attempted to read this book -- so this review is going to short and sweet --just hitting the high spots. First off, I was really surprised that I didn't love it. Reunited lovers is one of my favorite tropes. My main issue with the novel is that it was ...

    Like the heroine of author Sarah Creech's "The Whole Way Home", I was born and raised in the mountains of Virginia. My home is still there, and I greatly looked forward to the tale of the mountain girl with an innate, undeniable gift of music who rises to the ranks of the country music...

    I simply love when a book surprises me, when it takes twists and turns I didn't see coming, when it builds in such a way that without realizing it slowly is far more then I'd anticipated. The Whole Way Home, by Sarah Creech, fits this description. I was really thrilled to have been sel...

    Overall I really enjoyed this book about two fictional famous country artists. I really felt for Jo and JD and was definitely hooked on their sort of estranged relationship. There were a few times I almost cried because of something that was revealed about Jo?s past. I really loved t...

    Jo(anne) Lover is a successful country music artist--a talented singer and fiddler--who is making music her own way. She's well-known as a down-home singer from Virginia who writes her own songs and loves the music she makes. Jo plays to packed crowds across the U.S. who love her more ...

    Maybe this comes because I just finished a succession of great books but I found this slow moving. Don't get me wrong: The story was entertaining but it did not grip me. I did not "have" to read the next chapter before falling asleep. I enjoyed the Nashville references, as it's one of ...

    Well-crafted and engaging. A literary version of "Nashville"! ...

    This book is country in the greatest way. Ostensibly, it's about two country singers, Jo and JD, who have fallen out with each other as they left their hard scrabble lives and made it to success in the country music industry. They are each sympathetic, interesting characters and the bo...

    Set amidst the Nashville scene The Whole Way home is a sweet easy read with a little romance and a lot of country music. Other than one disturbing part the story fully engaged me which was a surprise as typically this is not my kind of book! Being true to yourself and owning up to your...

    I received this via Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review. All my opinions are my own. ---- Nice story but couldn't fully get into it. I loved the setting in the country music world, something a bit different (for me anyway). As soon as a certain someone came on the ...

    I picked up this book because of it's Nashville setting and country music themes. And I loved that about it, but that's where my love for this book stopped. Every person in this book was stereotypical on the surface with nothing underneath. The moments in the book that should have been...

    When I was a teen, one of my favorite movies was a movie called The Thing Called Love. It starred Samantha Mathis, Sandra Bullock, River Phoenix, and Dermot Mulroney, all trying to make it in the country music scene. At the time, I had little to no interest in country music at all, so ...

    Oooh, this was sweet. I just loved it. To be fair, I'm always a sucker for a southern romance and I also love books about fake celebrities, so this was right up my street. It was atmospheric and calm, dramatic without being ridiculous. The writing is straightforward and never meanderin...

    4 1/2 stars Jo(anne) Lover is a country music musician who embodies the roots of traditional country music. She is an independent person, applauding a long line of strong women singers who have gone before and she is not very keen on the male country singers who sing about their tru...

    Thank you to Sarah Creech and Goodreads.com I won this book in a Giveaway. Very slow easy story about being true to who you really are. Your life may require changes but it will always lead you back to your true character and choices that you made. I like how the story isn't rushed ...

    Readers get ready for an author that will blow you away with beautiful music, Nashville coming to life and best part of it all is that this is an author that you will not forget. We have The Whole Way Home by Sarah Creech who at first you think this is your usual singer making it big i...

    A romance set in the world of big time country music with a feisty leading lady that plays the fiddle and wears red boots! Jo Lover is engaged to a successful music producer when her former music partner and boyfriend comes to her concert. Jo's past collides with her future forcing her...

    Nashville's country music scene and a great love story. I enjoyed it! ...

    I received this book through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program. I want to start by saying that this book was not at all what I was expecting; not even close. To be honest, I entered the giveaway on the first day, and then it took so long for it to arrive in the mail that I f...

    4.5 stars. The Whole Way Home by Sarah Creech is a compelling novel set against the backdrop of the country music scene. Joanne "Jo" Lover has remained true to the country music she began playing as an up and coming star. Signed with independent label, Asphalt Record, she has ret...

    It has been a while since I attempted to read this book -- so this review is going to short and sweet --just hitting the high spots. First off, I was really surprised that I didn't love it. Reunited lovers is one of my favorite tropes. My main issue with the novel is that it was ...

    Like the heroine of author Sarah Creech's "The Whole Way Home", I was born and raised in the mountains of Virginia. My home is still there, and I greatly looked forward to the tale of the mountain girl with an innate, undeniable gift of music who rises to the ranks of the country music...

    I simply love when a book surprises me, when it takes twists and turns I didn't see coming, when it builds in such a way that without realizing it slowly is far more then I'd anticipated. The Whole Way Home, by Sarah Creech, fits this description. I was really thrilled to have been sel...

    Overall I really enjoyed this book about two fictional famous country artists. I really felt for Jo and JD and was definitely hooked on their sort of estranged relationship. There were a few times I almost cried because of something that was revealed about Jo?s past. I really loved t...

    "The Whole Way Home" by Sarah Creech was recommended to me by a friend because of my love for the television series, "Nashville." And, yes, this book was very reminiscent of the show just without a lot of the tv drama. I enjoyed this book, however, Ms. Creech spent a lot of time at the...

    I could relate to a common background with the author from Galax to Pulaski in SWVA. I currently reside in The Queen City. My daughter was married at Queen College, although she attended UNCC. I had customers and family in Nashville so I could enjoy the names and places described in th...

    I'm a huge fan of country music, so it's exciting to me when a work of fiction focuses on the culture and intricacies of the music industry. The Whole Way Home was also recommended by a popular book blogger whom I follow. This author's style and unique voice are both very appealing to ...

    I received this book through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program. I want to start by saying that this book was not at all what I was expecting; not even close. To be honest, I entered the giveaway on the first day, and then it took so long for it to arrive in the mail that I f...

    Jo Lover is a country singer who is on her way to joining the other greats like Dolly and Reba. Her career is threatened when her label merges with a smaller one, bringing her ex JD McCoy onto the same label. Jo is already engaged but being reunited with her first love JD brings up old...

    Jo(anne) Lover is a successful country music artist--a talented singer and fiddler--who is making music her own way. She's well-known as a down-home singer from Virginia who writes her own songs and loves the music she makes. Jo plays to packed crowds across the U.S. who love her more ...

    Maybe this comes because I just finished a succession of great books but I found this slow moving. Don't get me wrong: The story was entertaining but it did not grip me. I did not "have" to read the next chapter before falling asleep. I enjoyed the Nashville references, as it's one of ...

    Well-crafted and engaging. A literary version of "Nashville"! ...

    This book is country in the greatest way. Ostensibly, it's about two country singers, Jo and JD, who have fallen out with each other as they left their hard scrabble lives and made it to success in the country music industry. They are each sympathetic, interesting characters and the bo...

    Set amidst the Nashville scene The Whole Way home is a sweet easy read with a little romance and a lot of country music. Other than one disturbing part the story fully engaged me which was a surprise as typically this is not my kind of book! Being true to yourself and owning up to your...

    See the full review at HarlequinJunkie.com Told from multiple points of view and set in country music capital Nashville, The Whole Way Home was a touching standalone story of loss, heartache, love, and hope. ?That was something she?d learned to do?dance despite the heartbr...

    I received this via Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review. All my opinions are my own. ---- Nice story but couldn't fully get into it. I loved the setting in the country music world, something a bit different (for me anyway). As soon as a certain someone came on the ...

    I picked up this book because of it's Nashville setting and country music themes. And I loved that about it, but that's where my love for this book stopped. Every person in this book was stereotypical on the surface with nothing underneath. The moments in the book that should have been...

    If you like the show Nashville you'll love this! Secrets, star crossed lovers and a great setting make this a quick summer read. ...

    When I was a teen, one of my favorite movies was a movie called The Thing Called Love. It starred Samantha Mathis, Sandra Bullock, River Phoenix, and Dermot Mulroney, all trying to make it in the country music scene. At the time, I had little to no interest in country music at all, so ...

    Oooh, this was sweet. I just loved it. To be fair, I'm always a sucker for a southern romance and I also love books about fake celebrities, so this was right up my street. It was atmospheric and calm, dramatic without being ridiculous. The writing is straightforward and never meanderin...

    4.5 stars. The Whole Way Home by Sarah Creech is a compelling novel set against the backdrop of the country music scene. Joanne "Jo" Lover has remained true to the country music she began playing as an up and coming star. Signed with independent label, Asphalt Record, she has ret...

    It has been a while since I attempted to read this book -- so this review is going to short and sweet --just hitting the high spots. First off, I was really surprised that I didn't love it. Reunited lovers is one of my favorite tropes. My main issue with the novel is that it was ...

    Like the heroine of author Sarah Creech's "The Whole Way Home", I was born and raised in the mountains of Virginia. My home is still there, and I greatly looked forward to the tale of the mountain girl with an innate, undeniable gift of music who rises to the ranks of the country music...

    I simply love when a book surprises me, when it takes twists and turns I didn't see coming, when it builds in such a way that without realizing it slowly is far more then I'd anticipated. The Whole Way Home, by Sarah Creech, fits this description. I was really thrilled to have been sel...

    Overall I really enjoyed this book about two fictional famous country artists. I really felt for Jo and JD and was definitely hooked on their sort of estranged relationship. There were a few times I almost cried because of something that was revealed about Jo?s past. I really loved t...

    "The Whole Way Home" by Sarah Creech was recommended to me by a friend because of my love for the television series, "Nashville." And, yes, this book was very reminiscent of the show just without a lot of the tv drama. I enjoyed this book, however, Ms. Creech spent a lot of time at the...

    I could relate to a common background with the author from Galax to Pulaski in SWVA. I currently reside in The Queen City. My daughter was married at Queen College, although she attended UNCC. I had customers and family in Nashville so I could enjoy the names and places described in th...

    I'm a huge fan of country music, so it's exciting to me when a work of fiction focuses on the culture and intricacies of the music industry. The Whole Way Home was also recommended by a popular book blogger whom I follow. This author's style and unique voice are both very appealing to ...

    Really wonderful romance combined with great insight into the country music business. I've never been a fan of country music (it's just not my genre) but this made me appreciate it. I appreciated even more the insight into how things work. Jo and JD are an interesting pair, more so for...

    I picked this book completely randomly, and to be honest, I wasn't sure I'd finish. There was nothing obviously wrong with the book--I definitely enjoyed some parts, especially the radio call-in show (it felt a bit like how the television show FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS incorporated the sport...
