Truth Be Told
By Carol Cox
Amelia Wagner is thrilled to be back in Granite Springs, AZ where her father owns the Granite Springs Gazette. What she never expected is to find her father very ill with just weeks to live. His passing leaves Amelia with a huge decision – run the newspaper, or sell it? And what should she do with the rather cryptic information her father left on a story he was tracking on the Great Western Investment Company? Amelia soon crosses paths with Ben Stone, an employee of GWIC, whose boss has given him the assignment of trying to win Amelia’s trust and sway her favor toward the company. However, the more investigating both Ben and Amelia do, the more questions arise about the integrity of the company and its dealings. Finding the truth may cost them everything.
I really enjoyed this book by Carol Cox. I enjoyed the lovely Amelia and appreciated her determination and independence. Ben Stone was the perfect male hero for this story – depicted as a man of integrity and one not afraid to stand up for truth at great cost to himself. The storyline moved along well, with intrigue enough to keep me turning chapter after chapter. I do admit that I finished this book in 1 day……346 pages of good story. Overall I give this book an A – nice, clean summer vacation read.
I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
