Exciting Start of a Brand-New Series by a Contemporary Romance Fan Favorite
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.

True to You is one of those books that captures your heart in the first chapter. I absolutely fell in love with Nora. She is one of my top five female book characters of all time. I loved this book so much I emailed the author when I was only one fourth of the way into the book.
Nora is the middle daughter, a librarian, and the perfect blend of quirkiness and intellect. The descriptions were so realistic that you feel you are there with Nora as she is carried out of the building, or when she is buying his book and his movie, or when she is driving with her nose 2 inches from the windshield. We have all shared her obsession with a fictional character (Thor or Nicholas from A Knight in Shining Armor).
John is a former Navy SEAL and Medal of Honor recipient. He has enlisted Nora’s help to find his birth mother after finding out he has an inherited disease. I did not see that coming… Their interactions and his thoughts were heartwarming and humorous.
This is the first book in the Bradford Sisters series. Each of the sisters is unique and fascinating in her own way. They have a great relationship and support each other beautifully. I loved the scene between Britt and Willow’s ex-boyfriend. Becky teases us enough with their stories that there is no way we cannot read the next two books.
After reading so many books you may feel that they most of them feel the same; that is definitely not the case with this book!
This book made me feel good inside. Sure they have problems to overcome but this book is the reason I love to read so much. You can escape into another world with characters you want to hang out with.
I will be shocked if this book doesn't make it into by top 10 of 2017.
Sexual content: kissing, great chemistry between the characters but still clean, some unwed pregnancies in the past are mentioned
