True to You By: Becky Wade

Back of the book

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.

My Thoughts

Becky Wade's long awaited series The Bradford Sisters debut novel is finally here, and it was definitely worth the wait.  While there was a novella prequel to this series, you will get the same information in this novel that you do in the novella, and I liked to hear it in Nora's perspective.  Nora comes from money and tradition, yet lives her life in a way that makes it all seem so simple and right.  She is kind, smart, and has a unique blend of past and present.  Johns character is the perfect navy man on the surface, but as the book progresses you see a side that makes him more likable.  John and Nora's different personality and personal struggles make this novel entertaining, and gives it a depth that makes you want to read it again and again.

I was given a competently copy of this novel from the Publisher.
