Fiction Friday: True to You

Christy Award Winning Book of the Year

In case you didn’t hear my scream that carried around the world, yes indeedy, I did win a Christy Award this week in Nashville. I hear there’s a class-action lawsuit if your eardrums were shattered that you might want to sign on to. But I wasn’t the only winner…


If reading all of those is a bit overwhelming at the moment, how about you consider first reading the Book of the Year? Becky Wade’s True to You is a contemporary romance that’s a good place to start in eventually perusing all these titles. Here’s a blurb:

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.
