I just finished reading "True Believer" by Nicholas Sparks. This book told about a love story between Jeremy and Lexie. Jeremy is a big-town journalist from New York City who comes to Boone Creek, NC planning to write an article for Scientific American to disprove the assumption that there are ghosts in the cemetary in Boone Creek. Lexie, is a librarian at Boone Creek who loves her job, her small town and all that it represents and when Jeremy shows up to write the article, she doesn't want much to do with him. She has been hurt by relationships in the past and is skeptical about loving or trusting a man again. However, after giving him a chance to prove who he really is, she begins to see past the journalist and begins to see traits in him that she has always longed for in a partner and she slowly begins to fall in love with him as he does with her.

While I liked it okay, it was only just that...okay. It wasn't anything incredibly special and I felt it lacked that pull that most of his other books have had for me. It took me a while to read it for that reason. Instead of wanted to read it without putting it down, I would read some, put it down and come back to it later. For me, the story line just seemed a little too simplistic and obvious. Being a girl, I did enjoy the love story aspect of the book and thought it was sweet and romantic and I plan to read the sequel to this book, "At First Sight" which continues the story of Jeremy & Lexie and their life together.
