True to You

Book Title: True to You
Author: Becky Wade
Publication Date: May 2, 2017
Publisher: Bethany House

Synopsis:

After a devastating heartbreak three years ago, genealogist and historical village owner Nora Bradford 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 John Lawson is a modern-day man, usually 100 percent focused on the present. However, when John, an adoptee, is diagnosed with an inherited condition, he's forced to dig into the secrets of his ancestry.

John enlists Nora's help to uncover the identity of his birth mother, and as they work side by side, this pair of opposites begins to suspect that they just might be a perfect match. But can their hope for a future survive their wounds from the past?

My Review:

If I were to describe this book in one word I would choose genuine. The characters' pasts, dreams, feelings, emotions...they were genuine. I could relate to them because they felt real. 

Everything about this book appealed and resonated with me. The chemistry between Nora and John was almost addicting. I don't know if there was ever a fictional couple I wanted to get together more!  

I seriously can not wait for the next book in this series!! I really want a happy ending for Nora's sisters too!

Heart on the Line

Book Title: Heart on the Line
Author: Karen Witemeyer
Publication Date: June 6, 2017 (That's today!!!)
Publisher: Bethany House

Synopsis:

Grace Mallory is tired of running, of hiding. But when an old friend sends an after-hours telegraph transmission warning Grace that the man who has hunted her for nearly a year has discovered her location, she fears she has no choice. She can't let the villain she believes responsible for her father's death release his wrath in Harper's Station, the town that has sheltered her and blessed her with the dearest friends she's ever known.

Amos Bledsoe prefers bicycles to horses and private conversations over the telegraph wire to social gatherings with young ladies who see him as nothing more than an oddity. His telegraph companion, the mysterious Miss G, listens eagerly to his ramblings every night and delights him with tales all her own. For months, their friendship--dare he believe, courtship?--has fed his hope that he has finally found the woman God intended for him. Yet when he takes the next step to meet her in person, he discovers her life is in peril, and Amos must decide if he can shed the cocoon of his quiet nature to become the hero Grace requires.



My Review:
Grace and Amos…what can I say about them? They captured my heart from the very beginning! They're so relatable and I wish that I lived in their time, or they in mine, so we could be friends.

The plot to this story was just awesome! I loved how it was not only about Grace and her beau but many others too. After getting acquainted with Helen and her dashing hero, Lee I can't wait for the next book! I'm hoping it's about them!! But even if it's not I know I'll love it anyway. How do I know you ask? Because there isn't a book of Karen Witemeyer's that I haven't gone all mushy over. Not a single one. And I'
m positive that record won't change.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐
