Earlier this spring I downloaded a new novella by Becky Wade. Then Came You is written in a fun format–epistolary (no, I can’t pronounce it!), which is all letters, journal entries, texts and phone calls–and I loved it! It’s a prequel to Becky’s new Bradford Sisters series. So when True to You, the first book in the series came out in late May, I was all over it…until life intervened. Between baseball, deadlines, family stuff and an upper respiratory infection, I struggled with time.
Last weekend, however, I read True to You, and it’s a great summer read! Becky’s books are warm, witty and emotional. I laugh. I cry. I fall in love. This book is no exception. The late twist and emotional ending will leave you satisfied. I highly recommend reading the prequel novella, Then Came You, either before or after book one because it gives you valuable insight into the family as a whole and to the sisters’ history. Best of all, the novella is free (Click HERE if you’re interested)! Here’s a little bit about True to You.
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?
