Rachel Gibson - True Confessions

Publisher: Avon Books

ISBN: 9780739419212

My rating: 3/5


Welcome to Gospel, Idaho where everyone knows that there are two universal truths. First, God did His best work when He created the Sawtooth Wilderness Area. Second, every sin known to heaven and earth -- from the hole in the ozone to alien abductions -- is all California's fault. This is the story of what happened when a Californian came to visit...

L.A. based tabloid reporter Hope Spencer has come to Gospel hoping for inspiration. Well, she gets inspiration...Hope has never met anyone quite like the resident of Gospel. From the Dean sisters with their color-coordinated hair to the toilet-tossing sportsmen...to the murder victim whose body had been found in her house years before. She discovers that reality is stranger than fiction -- even tabloid fiction!

And then there is local sheriff Dylan Taber. He is no made-up character from one of her stories. Dylan is all too real...and soon Hope is forced to face the awful truth -- she's been too long without a man. But once she gets wind of a Hollywood actress somehow mixed up Dylan's life, Hope realizes that if they are to have a furture together, he has some true confessing to do.

My thoughts:

Another Rachel Gibson book. I didn’t think she’d turn into one of my favourite authors (the graphic love scenes can be a tad much sometimes for old fashioned me), but after reading “Daisy’s back in town” I grabbed a few of her other books .... one of them “True Confessions”.

It’s more or less the same recipe – woman (Hope Spencer) is moving forward fromher past meets man (Dylan Taber) who is equally having to deal with some “issues”.

Hope moves to Gospel, Idaho, for six months to kick start her talent as a writer for The Weekly News of the Universe, but she finds more than just ideas for a series of new articles – a friend in Shelly her new neighbour as well as love in Dylan, or has she?

The book is full of witty dialogues, the heroine is intelligent and very much someone the reader could identify with, Dylan Taber is the sheriff in Gospel, sexy as all of Gibson’s heroes, but also a single parent to seven year old Adam.

All in all a nice light reading, nothing sensational, a few misunderstandings to keep the story going and the usual “canoodling” afterwards in true Gibson style.
