Your classic romantic heroine swoons after meeting Prince Charming in, say, an enchanted forest. But Rennie Young would never have met the gallant Truman Sayers if she hadn’t fainted immediately beforehand—in the boys’ sportswear department of her local Wal-Mart.
Ren, a 20-something elementary schoolteacher, has reluctantly accepted that her husband—who divorced her over a year ago—is not coming back. Tru Sayers, a handsome young labor-and-delivery nurse, seems like a gift from God. Ren’s friends and Tru’s siblings are supportive and excited about the match. But there are . . . complications.
Ren’s control-freak mother is desperate to match her daughter up with “more suitable” men. Tru’s mother wants Tru to remain a bachelor—and at her beck and call—forever. Is it possible to honor your parents while on the verge of killing them? Despite conflicts, embarrassments, and a pity binge or two, Ren learns how to lean on the Lord and His loving will for her. Just when Ren thinks her happiness is slipping away, God shows her that no miracle is too good to be true.
Trish Perry has created another great Chicklit. She writes with a humor that draws the reader in and keeps them wanting more. I stayed up until 2:30 am to finish because I didn't want to put it down. I could relate to Ren and Tru struggles with balancing family and a new romance. Perry's message that God's will for our lives will lead to our true happiness is one that we all need to be reminded of. I am a big fan of Trish Perry's novel and she did not disappoint this time either. I can not wait to read the next book in this series. If you are looking for a fast paced book Too Good To Be True will not dissappoint.
