Publisher's Description

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?

    I loved Truth Be Told! Author Carol Cox has once again crafted a story filled with intrigue, mystery, and romance. Set in 1893 in the small town of Granite Springs, AZ, we meet Amelia Wagner when she comes to town to visit her father. Within a short time, her father passes away, and she inherits the Granite Springs Gazette, becoming the owner and editor of the small town’s newspaper. Her first order of business is to find out what’s going on behind the scenes at The Great Western Investment Company. Notes, files, and printed articles left behind by her father, the only clues that something is amiss within the land company. And while checking into the clues, Amelia must keep her eye on the handsome Ben Stone, an employee of Great Western who keeps trying to get into her good graces, hoping that she’ll print a retraction for the articles that her father had written about the company. But when Ben keeps hanging around, Amelia decides to ask for his help and the two of them join forces to find out what’s really going on. And the effort could prove deadly for both of them.

    I totally enjoyed this book. I loved the sweet, growing romance between Amelia and Ben. Also, the way Carol added in the touch of mystery that she does so well in each of her stories. And the Gospel was expertly threaded through the storyline. Well done, Carol!

    (I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.)

    It’s 1893, and Amelia Wagner has returned to Granite Springs, Arizona Territory, to spend the summer with her father, editor of the local newspaper. However, he is dying, and leaves her in charge of the newspaper—and of investigating the Great Western Investment Company, who are buying up all the land around town for mining.

    Ben Stone is employed by Great Western to research and negotiate possible land acquisitions. His boss encourages him to befriend Amelia in the hopes that she will print a retraction of her father’s stories maligning the company. He’s pleased to be spending time with Amelia, but finds she’s not easy to persuade, especially when her oily stepfather arrives in town (yes, her mother remarried only days after the death of her father).

    I didn’t enjoy Truth be Told as much as I enjoyed the last Carol Cox novel I read (Trouble in Story), as I found it a bit slow to get going, and the initial interactions between Amelia and Ben didn’t have the same level of charm. This was partly because they were on opposing sides of an argument, and partly because they simply didn’t spend enough time together. It’s difficult to believe the progression of a romantic relationship when they’re never together!

    However, it took off after the halfway point, and the second half was an excellent mix of romance and suspense as the two seek to find the truth behind Great Western. Truth be Told is Christian romance, but the faith aspects are understated and not at all preachy. Overall, Truth be Told was an enjoyable enough read, but not one I’d keep and reread.

    Thanks to Bethany House and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.

    Amelia is the heroine in Carol Cox's "Truth Be Told." It is the 1890's in Arizona and Amelia's parents are separated. Though an adult, she spends most of the year with her socialite mother in Denver and the summers in Arizona with her father. When she arrives that summer, she finds her father deathly ill and having a battle of words with Great Western, a hydraulic mining company, that has moved into the area. Shortly after Amelia arrives, her father dies and the battle of words turns physical. With her mother immediately remarrying and her step father being a bit handsy, Amelia decides to stay and finish where her father left off. Ben works for Great Western and has been assigned to spy/befriend Amelia. The two together begin to discover what the truth is. And it isn't anywhere near what they suspected!

    This is a nice light hearted historical fiction. It is an easy read. Good for when there is a lot going on. I do like how even though it is historical, it isn't over the top innocent as some historical Christian fiction can be. Amelia is tough and smart. Savy if you will. Nice read. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Bethany House Publishing.

    I was pleasantly surprised by “Truth Be Told” by Carol Cox. It is a romance but contains no smut. In fact the only intimacy is a barely there kiss on the last page. (If you’re looking for ‘heat’, keep looking). “Truth Be Told” is about a woman who inherits a newspaper business from her father and tries to investigate the misdeeds of the evil mining company.
    Romance novels are rarely believable so why should this one be? Having said that, fortunately, it was missing the lame woman-hates-man-until-he-kisses-her routine. If nothing else is said, that alone redeems this novel.
    I enjoyed the relationship between the main female character and her sole employee – a protective old friend of her father. It was well written and endearing. Everyone needs a protective old uncle figure in their life. The bad guys came across as creepy without there having to be anything graphic as well – another bonus.
    Of course lone rangers rarely take down large mining tycoons and heroes don’t really ride in and save the day just in the nick of time but so what? This is a romance novel and it’s exactly what romance readers are looking for.

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review of the book. This is the first book I've read by this author and I must say I enjoyed it. Although, I was a little shocked at the beginning to read about Amelia’s father’s death as most authors decide to not show a death like that in their books but rather talk about it after it as happening in the past. I found that it worked, however, in this book. Amelia is a likeable character with her drive for the truth even if she won’t like what she finds out. Amelia found out about Ben being asked to spend time with her by his boss earlier than I had expected which made me question that much more what was going to happen. It contained elements that I like in the majority of the books I read; a little bit of suspense with some romance mixed in, likeable characters, and it raised questions that I wanted answers to which made me keep reading. I recommend this book for those who like historical fiction that contain romance and suspense with a Christian perspective.
