Truth Be Told: A Book Review

About The Book:

Sometimes the truth can be dangerous... 
When Amelia Wagner takes over her father's newspaper in 1893 Granite Springs, Arizona, she vows to carry on the paper's commitment to reporting only the truth. But Amelia soon learns that even the truth can have serious consequences. Her father's revealing articles about the Great Western Investment Company have caught the attention of the wrong people, and pressure mounts for Amelia to retract her father's statements.

Determined to find out the real story, Amelia begins her own investigation. She's joined by Benjamin Stone, a Great Western employee who's been assigned to keep tabs on her for the good of the company, a man Amelia finds both perplexing and intriguing.

What they uncover stuns them both--and has far-reaching implications for not only Ben and Amelia but all of Granite Springs. Can they reveal the truth before the enemy finds a way to silence them for good?

My Review:

What happens when you combine a Western, mystery-suspense and a little bit of romance to a novel?

You get an absolutely phenomenal read from author Carol Cox. I have read her other books, but honestly by far, Truth Be Told is my favorite one to date. I could not seriously put this book down, and in fact stayed up late into a Friday evening reading it. The book takes you into the world of 1800's journalism, complete with corruption and greed, and you will feel as though you are right in each scene. I could seriously visualize all that the characters did, and would love to see this book as a movie.

 The book flowed nicely between scenes, and the characters are developed very nicely as well. You will find yourself liking some of the characters and very much disliking some but it all adds to a remarkable read that would be perfect for fans of this author as a Christmas gift this upcoming holiday season. 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!

BUY IT: You can purchase Truth Be Told at your favorite book retailer from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group
