Reviews - What do customers think about Too Good to Be True?
A true gem! Mar 29, 2007
Rennie Young is overwhelmed by her losses. Her husband's betrayal, the failure of her plans to adopt and her mother's disapproval of her faith and choice of career culminate in a not so glamorous fainting spell in Wal-Mart. Opening her eyes, Rennie is convinced she is dreaming as the handsome man tending to her looks too good to be true!
Trish Perry has penned another entertaining romance that is fun and engaging yet encompasses the serious issues of prejudice, overbearing parents and how childhood shapes us. Rennie and Tru are appealing characters and although they fit the traditional formula for a romance ~ attractive, young and successful ~ the author has them deal with real life problems from a completely human and realistic perspective which is very refreshing. Trish lets the reader experience their frustration, anger and disappointment and be inspired by their blessings, hopes and joys!
Kara and Gabe are back from The Guy I'm Not Dating together with Jeremy, Sandra and even the infamous Tiffany! Despite feeling the ending was a little rushed, I have no hesitation in recommending this delightful story and I look forward to Trish's future books.
Highly recommended Mar 4, 2007
Rennie Young just fainted in the boys' department at Wal-Mart. Fortunately, Truman Sayers was there as she awoke. And who wouldn't love a man with a "voice like dark rich coffee"? Certainly not this java junkie! I was hooked before the end of the first chapter.
Rennie, a teacher with an overbearing rich mother whose husband divorced her, tugged at my heartstrings from the very first page. She is such a sympathetic heroine! I could sympathize with her, without feeling sorry for her too much, and for me, that makes all the difference between a good book and a sappy one.
Tru, our hero, is a handsome labor-and-delivery nurse, and who wouldn't love that about a man? He's not a power-hungry, career-driven, money-seeking guy; rather, he too is sympathetic, with his own mother issues and a large, loving family.
We have plenty of secondary characters, and they are certainly wonderful! I found the camaraderie that Rennie has with her work colleagues much like the best of my own teaching days: fun and true-to-life. Rennie's friend Kara (the heroine from The Guy I'm Not Dating) is fun as a semi-pushy personal trainer. Tru's extended family is great fun as well.
When the inevitable plot conflicts drove our Rennie and Tru apart, I was actually a bit upset with author Trish Perry. Why couldn't she leave these two beleaguered people alone, anyway? Haven't they been through enough? Yet, in this work of fiction as in life, the characters must suffer a bit of faith-testing to strengthen their own personal walks with Jesus as well as their relationship. No one comes out the worse for wear, and the intended and expected happy ending is achieved and welcome at long last.
While this book was published after The Guy I'm Not Dating, it's not necessary to read it before picking up Too Good to Be True. I emailed Trish Perry and told her I liked that about the book, and she told me that Too Good was actually written first. I imagine that some of the background from The Guy might be helpful, but it is most certainly not necessary.
I highly recommend Too Good to Be True.
