Truth Be Told by Carol Cox was a wonderful read filled with mystery, truth, and a bit of romance.
Sometimes the truth can be dangerous…
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?
I wasn’t sure what to think about this book at first. I was frustrated at it’s seemingly slow pace. However, after finishing the novel, I think the slow pace was appropriate. The novel builds as the characters learn more about the Great Western Investment Company and as the mystery starts to unravel. If things had picked up too fast, I think it would have been a hard novel to follow.
For a main character, Amelia did lack some depth. I don’t feel like her character really went through much of a transformation. Same with the books hero, Ben, although the things that we learn about him make it appear that way. I tend to prefer character driven stories a bit more than the plot driven, so there is a bit of bias on my thoughts here.
I found the book to be a fast read. I wasn’t overly disappointed in it, but I’m not sure that it will be as memorable to me as Carol Cox’s other books. I would recommend it if someone was looking for a light read that they could get through quickly.
