What Remains True by Nancy Naigle: Book Review

 **I received a complimentary copy for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

An uplifting novel about three months that may change three lives—and lead to love—from USA Today bestselling author Nancy Naigle

Working at a little shop on Main Street in a small town is exactly the break that executive Merry Anna Foster needs following her divorce. She’s made a bet with her ex-husband that she can live on the amount of money she’s giving him in alimony. If she can do it, then Kevin will have to stop complaining and leave her alone. But after three months of this new life, will she even want to leave Antler Creek? 

Adam Locklear, bull rider and owner of the local feedstore, is having the best year of his rodeo career. He’s also a bit distracted by the pretty new neighbor living in his old bunkhouse. But Adam has no time for matters of the heart. He’s got his future all mapped out, and that future doesn’t involve a woman just yet. It doesn’t involve parenting a little girl either. However, Carly Fowler still suddenly leaves five-year-old Zan—the daughter Adam didn’t know he had—in his care. 

Is it possible that the future holds a life even better than what Merry Anna and Adam had each dreamed of? One that includes both tenderness and even love—not just for each other but for Zan too.

Nancy Naigle is a USA Today bestselling author whose many contemporary romance novels include The Shell Collector and the Adams Grove, Boot Creek, and Christmas in Evergreen series. Several of her novels have been adapted to the television screen, airing on Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, including the popular Christmas Joy and The Secret Ingredient. Nancy makes her home in Virginia.

Nancy Naigle is one of those writers whom I always know is going to deliver an enjoyable romance... and What Remains True was certainly that. 

Based on the book blurb, I expected that this bet between Merry Anna and her ex husband---a bet that she could live on a limited income--- would play a larger part in the story. I thought this was a really unique idea and had definitely been drawn in by that... however, I actually found that it really wasn't talked about all that much within the story, or at least more so than I had expected anyway. While I certainly would have loved to see more about that, I found this to be an enjoyable story anyway. The chemistry between Merry Anna and Adam was nice, and I really enjoyed Zan's character and interactions with Adam as well. If you enjoy a sweet, clean romance this is certainly one to checkout.
