Truth be Told, by Carol Cox

From the Publisher:

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?

My Review:

I really enjoyed this book. It was suspenseful with well-developed characters and a love story that unfolded slowly.

I enjoyed Amelia's character -- her strength, her integrity, her tenacity. She stands for right despite personal hardship.

Ben's character was a good one as well... a man of integrity, willing to set aside his own aspirations for God's plan for his life.

There is a healthy mixture of deceit, family drama, greed, romance, spiritual development, suspense, etc in this book.

I highly recommend it!
