About True to You
I always enjoy Becky Wade’s books, and True to You is no exception. Its setting in Washington State makes it even more enjoyable!
Having recently read Then Came You, this series’ prequel novella, I was particularly eager to read True to You. It did not disappoint, and I’m eager for the next installment already!
Merryweather may be a fictional town – think Leavenworth, if it were not limited to Bavaria – but remains absolutely charming. I truly wish it were a real place, so I could visit it!
Wade continues to paint vivid mental pictures in this book; you’ll half expect to see Nora walk around the corner any second. The story line is creative and faintly reminiscent of the Minnie Driver and David Duchovny movie Return to Me.
I had just two beefs with True to You. One: I didn’t find it entirely realistic for John and Nora to “just go” to downtown Seattle’s Nordstrom flagship. Merryweather seems far enough away (per my rough guesstimates) as to be an intentional day trip — not one to do on a whim. Maybe I’m biased as a regular commuter to downtown, however. I wouldn’t go downtown on a day off if I could help it! Secondly, there were a couple sensual moments where I wasn’t quite sure what direction they’d go. All turned out well, but my antennae went up briefly there.
Overall a read I’d recommend picking up. Good vacation read — or before bed — or anytime!
