Sometimes the truth can be dangerous . . .
When Amelia Wagner takes over her father's newspaper in 1893 Granite Springs, Arizona, she vows to carry on the paper's commitment to reporting only the truth. But Amelia soon learns that even the truth can have serious consequences. Her father's revealing articles about the Great Western Investment Company have caught the attention of the wrong people, and pressure mounts for Amelia to retract her father's statements.
Determined to find out the real story, Amelia begins her own investigation. She's joined by Benjamin Stone, a Great Western employee who's been assigned to keep tabs on her for the good of the company, a man Amelia finds both perplexing and intriguing.
What they uncover stuns them both--and has far-reaching implications for not only Ben and Amelia but all of Granite Springs. Can they reveal the truth before the enemy finds a way to silence them for good?

I found it unrealistic that Amelia would rush into dangerous situations without thinking things through. The ending was also a little weaker than I would have liked. Still, I enjoyed the book and found it to be interesting and entertaining.
Truth Be Told focuses on finding the truth and the newspaper industry. The journey toward truth isn't solely about the news and the newspaper in Granite Springs. The truth digs into business practices, relationships, and faith. Truth isn't always wrapped up in a bow and can lead to danger because of our fallen world, but in the end the truth brings freedom.
The most unique part of this novel was the family dynamics of the Wagners. Mr. and Mrs. have been separated for many years. Amelia would live with her mother during the "school year" and spend summers with her father. The mother became a background character that is heard about but never seen in the story. It was an interesting story element.
If you're looking for a historical read for the summer, I would recommend Truth Be Told. It takes place over the summer months and offers a good mystery to follow and uncover. Also, the romance is light and sincere.
Time Period: 1893
Location: Granite Springs, Arizona Territory, USA

An intriguing novel that will keep you on your toes and turning the pages until you know what’s going to happen. The author did a great job of drawing you in. I have enjoyed Carol Cox’s novels and look forward to seeing what novels she writes in the future.

Must Love Books
The first 40% of the kindle book was slow, but if you stick with it, you won't be disappointed. Again, Ben worked very hard with his investigation. Actually, I wouldn't mind if there's a sequel with Ben as an amateur sleuth. The romance didn't overpower the story. It was an enjoyable read!
This was one of those books that I did not want to put down until the last page and even then I was sorry to finish the story.
