BOOK REVIEW: "True Believer"

True Believer
By Nicholas Sparks
Copyright 2005
Warner Books
Adult Fiction

As I usually do, I enjoyed this book by Nicholas Sparks.  True Believer had a slightly different twist than most of his stories.  Journalist (of sorts) Jeremy Marsh has stumbled across a story about a haunted cemetery in the small town of Boone Creek, North Carolina.  Jeremy makes the trip to see what all the fuss is about and ends up in the middle of a mystery that he decides he wants to solve.

In the meantime, he meets the town librarian Lexie Darnell and thoughts of heading back to the big city start to slip out of his mind.  Lexie, of course, has demons in her past and she isn't sure she wants to let go. 

The love story develops in a fairly typical manner for Sparks and by the time you get to the end of the story you definitely have the "awwwwww" factor that we've all come to expect with these stories. 

I was a little disappointed in the development of some of the characters or this would have gotten a higher ranking.  But I sure do love a good love story.
