Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a science journalist with a regular column in Scientific American, Jeremy Marsh specializes in debunking the supernatural and has a real nose for the strange and unusual. A born skeptic, he travels to the small town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, determined to find the real cause behind the ghostly apparitions that appear in the town cemetery. What he doesn't plan on, however, is meeting and falling hopelessly in love with Lexie Darnell, granddaughter of the town psychic. Now, if the young lovers are to have any kind of future at all, Jeremy must make a difficult choice: return to the life he knows, or do something he could never do before — take a giant leap of faith.

A story about taking chances and following your heart, True Believer will make you, too, believe in the miracle of love.

Review:

"Sparks...delivers another shrink-wrapped, reliably uncomplicated romantic confection that's light as air, smooth as silk and gloriously sweet." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Despite some nice plot twists, the mysteries and conflicts are resolved in largely predictable ways that will still satisfy Sparks's many fans." Library Journal

Review:

"Although Sparks' latest starts with great potential, the main characters feel cool and distant; it is the secondary characters who embody the warmth and verve that usually mark Sparks' best-sellers." Booklist

Synopsis:

Jeremy Marsh is a born skeptic and a science journalist who specializes in debunking the supernatural. When he hears about ghostly apparitions in a cemetery in Boone Creek, North Carolina, he leaves his beloved New York City for this small, rural town-and what his instincts tell him could make a great story. What he doesn't plan on is meeting and falling hopelessly in love with Lexie Darnell, who is sure of one thing: her future is here in Boone Creek, close to the people she loves. Now, if the young lovers are to be together, Jeremy must make a difficult choice: return to the life he knows in New York, or do something he could never do before... take a giant leap of faith.

Synopsis:

As a science journalist with a regular column, Jeremy Marsh specializes in debunking the supernatural--until he falls in love with the granddaughter of the town psychic. Sparks' unforgettable #1 "New York Times" bestseller explores the deepest mysteries of all--those of the heart.
