Synopsis:
It’s the exciting start of a brand-new series by a contemporary romance fan favorite!

After a devastating heartbreak three years ago, genealogist and historical village owner Nora Bradford has decided that burying her nose in her work and her books is far safer than romance in the here and now.

Unlike Nora, former Navy SEAL and Medal of Honor recipient John Lawson is a modern-day man, usually 100 percent focused on the present. But when he’s diagnosed with an inherited condition, he’s forced to dig into the secrets of his past and his adoption as an infant, enlisting Nora to help him uncover the identity of his birth mother.

The more time they spend together, the more this pair of opposites suspects they just might be a perfect match. However, John’s already dating someone and Nora’s not sure she’s ready to trade her crushes on fictional heroes for the risks of a real relationship. Finding the answers they’re seeking will test the limits of their identity, their faith, and their devotion to one another.
Review:
I have to start off by saying, I love the cover of this book! The cover design really sets the tone for this book perfectly. It's light, whimsical, with a promise of so much more.

This book starts off in such an interesting way and it hooked me from the first line. Nora is a woman, who works at a museum and helps out her sister. Her and her sister, even though close are very, different, but the two meshed well. They were fun! I always wanted a sister, so when I see the friendship between sisters, like this, I savor it. I connected with Nora in this story and I honestly can't wait to read more in this series!

John, even though opposite of Nora, with his intensity and work background, the two paired together well. His background of a Navy Seal background, and her research background were really the perfect duo for the adventure that came their way.

Becky Wade has an amazing talent for writing couples that pop off the page. I fell in lover with her characters and got hooked on her writing from her previous series. I have to say, with each book, they get better and better. Her attention to detail with not only her characters, but with the settings, even their outfits make it so much more relate-able and engrossing. The little details make this story pop.

This was a fantastic start to a new series. I can't wait to see what happens next! There was so much to rave about with True to You, but I don't want to spoil it. You need to pick up a copy for yourself.

Too Read!
