Blog Tour: True to You by Becky Wade

Author: Becky Wade
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Date of publication: May 2017

It’s the exciting start of a brand-new series by a contemporary romance fan favorite!

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 is the first in a new series featuring the Bradford sisters.  This is Nora's story.  Out of her three sisters, she is the "smart" one.  She has resigned herself to a single life buried in book romances.  Until she meets John.  He's a war hero, former Navy SEAL and all around nice guy.  The only problem is he has a girlfriend.

It thought this was a sweet romance. I loved watching Nora and John fall for each other. I will admit that I read this late into the night.  I was really drawn to this couple and their story. I felt like their struggle with things in their life was real.  I also appreciated that they were shown as struggling with their faith and how to let it help them. I was also eager to find out if John found his birth mother or not.

It did bother me a bit that John had a girlfriend when he met Nora.  As his feelings for her seemed to grow, he did do the right thing by distancing himself from Nora before anything inappropriate happened. So, that made me feel a bit better about the situation.  

I do recommend book.  I ended up really enjoying it.  I can't wait to read Willow and Britt's stories. Britt really needs to wake up and see what it standing right next to her!
