“Truth be told” is the story of Amelia Wagner who after her father’s death takes over his newspaper in Granite Springs, Arizona. Amelia quickly gets caught up in the troubles of Granite Springs and the investigation her father was pursuing before his death.
I found Amelia to be a very likable character. She is independent, smart, and willing to do the right thing no matter what the cost (which causes her some problems along the way). She tackles a large mysterious corporation in her effort to defend the town and the people that she care about. My only complaint about her character is that she seemed a little too perfect. She was a little too good and never seemed to mess up. Without any flaws she just didn’t seem to be a fully developed character.
This book is a good mix of romance, historical fiction, and mystery. I found the plot to be very predictable but I also found myself eagerly reading till the end to find out how everything went down. I don’t know that I would read this book again, but it was definitely worth reading once if you need a quick enjoyable read.
I was given this book by Bethany House for my review and was not required to give a positive review.
