My husband and I both really enjoyed this novel. A small-town setting, endearing characters, and the pages practically turn themselves from the first page to the end. It should make everyone's summer vacation list. I agree with all who said it is hard to put down. This is not a gory, disturbing crime novel. Hard to believe, but much about it is sweet, funny, and heart-warming. About half-way through, just when you think you've got everything figured out, Pat Brown rolls out the surprises! I hope they make this one into a movie. And I personally would love a sequel.

One third of the way into this book on my Kindle--just as I was hooked--the text became center justified for the remainder of the book (as opposed to justified on the left-hand margin). I simply could not read like this. It was impossible to tell where paragraphs were starting. Terribly disappointed. Not to mention a number of obvious typos (which isn't too uncommon with the cheaper Kindle books).

If this issue is fixed, then I can't wait to finish the book and I will update this review.

***UPDATE***

I am happy to report that the formatting issues are fixed (though not the many typos). Unfortunately, I don't have a glowing review for this book. Three stars is pushing it. I'd say I was leaning four stars in the first third of the book (it seemed to have a lot of promise), then was feeling three stars through the middle, and was a solid two by the end. I hate to say it, but the end was simply awful. It was wrapped up with such brevity and simplicty that it felt like watching the last five minutes of a cheap soap opera.

Good book. Keeps you interested right from the start. You are guessing at what is going on. The problem I had was the ending was really bad. It seemed like the author ran out of time and spent 3 pages closing the whole story out. The actions of the characters (not going to spoil) at the end are so ridiculous and goes against everything they would realistically do. The ending almost ruined what was a great story. I think that could have been handled a lot better, but oh well. The book is worth your time and money for sure. I'll check out others by this author.

Enjoyed this book from the first page through to the last page. I have been a fan of Pat Brown since she started doing talk shows & was thrilled to find she was writing. The story is fresh, the characters are interesting ..you don't want to put the book down..well worth the price

It is written in a first person, from a very simple, unedumacated man. This style is pretty unique and at first it stopped me from reading past the first 20 pages. I was forced to pick it up again (I had nothing else on my kindle) and enjoyed the unique prose going forward. It is a nice little story, but I kind of figured out the final outcome three quarters from the book. Billy Ray, who couldn't read, all of a sudden could read the blinking neon sign on the highway diner? The author goofed - builds a character that can't read and then all of sudden uses hooked-on-phonics and learns to read when food is on the line at the diner. There are some other small nuances that that annoyed me. Two police departments working murder cases jointly would not openly discuss a case and what-if scenarios in front of a potential suspect (Billy Ray) nor anyone else for that matter. Overall an enjoyable read, but the author probably should get a new editor so that the story holds together better.

Only the Truth was a surprisingly compelling if somewhat predictable read. It is a good book for those new to Kindles as there is no need to check back over details, the story rapidly and clearly unfolds. The characters were affectionately portrayed. Easy to read in one or two sittings.

I only gave it three stars because the ending was wrapped up so abruptly it was almost as if she had become sick of writing the book, also one element of a subplot was left unresolved in a way that seemed like an oversight.

I read good things about this book so I thought I would try it.
Pros: a fast read
Cons: story made no sense. Poor character development. I didn't have any sense of who these people were. I couldn't develop any empathy for them. Half way through the book the spacing changed which threw me off.

Skip this book and spend the time reading something of substance.

I rarely have the time to sit down and read even a short story, but Pat's latest gripped me from the first page and made it impossible for me to put it down and get to my other errands. With stories that are this well written, it's difficult to discuss the plot without giving away details and whatnot, but I will say that Pat Brown definitely has a way with words and a way with taking on the personality of the individual she writes as in "Only the Truth."

I found the story dark and romantic at the same time, and I can't wait to see what else Brown comes up with next. Seriously, guys. If you like to FEEL what you're reading, check this book out!
