Truth be Told by Carol Cox

{About the Book}

~Wild West Romance and Mystery from Carol Cox~ 

When Amelia Wagner takes over the running of her father's newspaper in 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 consequences. Her father's revealing articles about Great Western Investment 
Company's business methods have caught the notice of the wrong person, and pressure mounts for Amelia to retract her father's statements. 
Determined to find the truth, Amelia goes through her father's notes and begins to interview members of the community. She can't seem to shake Benjamin Stone, a Great Western employee who's been assigned to keep tabs on her for the good of the company. 
The more Ben and Amelia learn, the more Amelia's father's claims appear to be accurate. In fact, it's probably worse than he realized. Even Ben is beginning to wonder if he's become a pawn in the workings of a corrupt empire. But Great Western isn't about to stand for a female reporter and one of their own men bringing down their lucrative schemes. Working against time, and never knowing what danger lurks around the next corner, Ben and Amelia set out to reveal all they've discovered before Great Western silences them for good. 

{My Review}

4 Stars!!

A wonderful read filled with suspense, mystery, and of course romance. The plot had so many great descriptions of the Wild West, which I very much enjoyed. It made me feel like I was right there in the novel. Amelia has an amazing heart and calling to find and show the truth even when it is something she or others may not like. Something Amelia learns and is one of the messages is to trust God. Amelia had issues but what Christian doesn't. I loved that element of the book. I think flaws are so important in characters in Christian fiction. Overall, it was a great historical fiction read.
