Book Review: True to You

I have so much to say about this book, True to You by Becky Wade.  I’m not even sure where to start.

When Bethany House Publishers sent me True to You, I couldn’t remember anything about the description, but I knew I loved the cover (Isn’t that dress so Audrey Hepburn?!). So, this was definitely a case of judging a book by it’s cover.

When I decided to read True to You, my original plan was to take it with me to the lake. I envisioned leisurely sitting by the lake while my kids played around me in the water. Who was I kidding? I have three children under five years of age, I need to keep an eye on them around water (even with puddle jumpers and life jackets on).

So naturally, when I woke up at 3am and couldn’t sleep, I thought, “One chapter will be enough to go back to sleep.” Famous last words. I started reading True to You. When I finally glanced up, it was 6:30am, the sun was coming up, and my kids were starting to stir. I was over two-thirds done with True to You. It was a gallon size cup of coffee kind of day, for sure!

True to You by Becky Wade is the first book in the Bradford Sisters Romance series. I love books with sisters; especially a trio of sisters. I have two sisters, so a trio is special to me. In True to You, we meet Nora, the middle sister. Willow is the oldest and Britt is the youngest. Nora is smart, successful, and mostly excepting of the fact that out of the trio, she is the plain, but smart one. Nora is into research, books, tea, and cardigans. I identified so much with Nora. I also like books, research, tea, and cardigans. I also identified with Nora because even though I’m the oldest of my sisters, I struggled for a long time in feeling like the plain, smart one. I have always known this isn’t true and my sisters have never made me feel like that (similar to the other Bradford sisters), but it has been a lie I struggled with for a long time. Nora is the proud owner of her town’s historical village and residential genealogist.

When Nora meets John, he is so different from her life. However, He is working on a project that needs Nora’s research and genealogist background. As they work together, reconciling the past will take more than they either ever expected.

I’ve already mentioned how I couldn’t put True to You down. It was such a great read. It is a romance book, but I thought it was really well done. The mystery and drama of the story kept me wide away as I “watched” the sun come up (I say “watched”, but I was blissfully buried in True to You).

Sometimes, an easy read is just what you need. I know for me that is true. I’ve been in a two week book struggle. I’ve need a fun book to revive my love of reading. True to You was the book I didn’t know I needed to get me out of my book slump.

With engaging characters, a fun storyline full of drama, mystery, and romance, I wasn’t satisfied once I finished read True to You. I wanted more! I already looked up when the next Bradford book comes out (never mind the fact that True to You JUST came out THIS month!). I’m excited to see what happens next with this trio of sisters. Good news for me (and you, if you become a fast fan like me!), there is a Bradford Sisters Novella called, Then Came You. It’s downloading on my kindle now!
