Becky Wade is hands down one of my favorite authors. I don’t even remember how I stumbled into her books but I’m ever so glad I did. She writes my favorite genre- clean, Christian love stories. Ok, the fancy way of saying that is “inspirational romance.” I love those books that thrust you deep into the character, you feel their joys and pain. Most of all- you feel like the characters are real people. And of course, have a happy ending. That’s a requirement for me- the ending must be happy.
All of Becky’s Wade’s books are perfect this way.
Recently, through Netgalley, I was given the opportunity to review her newest book, True to You. You’d better believe I jumped at that opportunity!
Isn’t that cover divine?? And that dress! Ahhhh….. swoon worthy.
This is the start of a new series and I can hardly wait to read all the books in it. The series actually starts with Then Came You. (Which is currently a free download anywhere you can download books.) It’s a prequel, written in journal entries and letters. It’s fabulous! And it sets the story up perfectly. But it you haven’t read it, it’s ok. It just gives you some background to the Bradford sisters.
True to You is the first novel in the series. It starts off with Nora Bradford who is a librarian/ genealogist. After a devastating heartbreak a few years before, she buries herself in her work and books. She meets former Navy SEAL John Lawson. John was adopted as a baby, but when diagnosed with a hereditary condition, he hires Nora to help find his birth mother so he can find answers to his disease.
Of course, the more time they spend together, these opposites find how much they like one another. The only problem is John is already dating someone and Nora isn’t sure she’s ready to give into her feelings.
This book is definitely swoon-worthy. I loved every sentence of it. I did find a few places to be a bit long, but knowing there are more books in the series, I can see how the author is setting up certain story lines. I didn’t bother me, it was just something I noticed. I tend to fly through books like this, but I found myself reading slower and really delving into the story.
I absolutely loved this series and can.not.wait for the others. I love Becky Wade’s ability to draw you deep into the lives of her characters. You really and truly feel like they are real people.
One more thing about Becky Wade… I just love her. Not only her books, but her. She is incredibly active on her Facebook and Instagram accounts. I love it when an actual author responds to something you post. It’s like talking with a celebrity! She’s also done a few Facebook live videos and she is just the cutest thing. I want her to be my personal friend!
So if you are like me and love books with a “love-story, heart-string tugging, Christian” story-line. I really recommend Becky Wade’s books. In fact, start with this series- you won’t be disappointed!
(Isn’t that the best line??)
