Book Review and Giveaway - True to You by Becky Wade



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.

True to You Becky Wade


This is the first book in the Bradford Sisters Romance series, and personally, I can't wait for the next book! As always, Becky Wade writes a story that pulls me in and keeps me there until the last page.

I absolutely love the character of Nora. She is bookish and loves the characters in her books. I love that she is into genealogy and, it's this interest, that brings John into her world. Actually, how they met is quirky and funny as her sister, Britt, gets her to volunteer for a faux hostage situation. This delightful beginning, sets the tone for this lovely story.

Then we have John. He's definitely what I would call a "man's man" and I can totally understand why Nora falls hard for him. He's a former Navy Seal hero and I really like his honored way of living.

There are some really difficult situations in this book that the characters have to deal with, however, I like the theme of faith and redemption throughout the book. It's inspiring and uplifting without being too depressing. There are twists and turns to keep us guessing yet the story is a very sweet romance, too.

Plus, the relationship with the sisters is so special and I loved the interactions between them. It added another dimension to the story for me and, I'm sure, is setting up the future books about the other sisters.

I really liked this book and loved that it was a such a page turner. It's the perfect summer read and I highly recommend it! I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
