The next stop on my Quest to Read Them All brings me to an e-book I downloaded for free as a promo with another book I bought. As the title of this series suggests, I have set out to read every book I own, even the ones I didn’t actually intend to purchase, and Inglath Cooper’s Truths and Roses was next on my To Be Read List.
In this case, not having actually paid for the book was a good thing. It meant that I wasn’t nearly as annoyed as I would’ve been had I actually spent money on the book. I just couldn’t get into the story. I love a good romance novel as much as the next girl. I can’t get enough of Susan Mallery and Catherine Bybee, but this book just didn’t draw me in. I couldn’t get behind the romance between the traumatized small town librarian and the forced to retire professional football hero. The book had all the required ups and downs of a good romance, I just wasn’t caught. Definitely not one I would recommend or seek out the rest of this author’s stories based on.
