The story develops slowly, and there isn't much to the mystery or its development, but Carol Cox does a wonderful job of developing the relationships of characters in her novel "Truth Be Told." After her father dies and her mother marries another man, Amelia is left with the family newspaper and a pile of notes that don't make sense, but point to foul dealings. Enter Ben Stone, employee of the company in question and handsome bachelor. What begins as a defense of his company leads to new discoveries and a suspenseful finale. Cox's writing style is pretty straightforward. When she does attempt to bring out a metaphor the result tends to feel awkward and out of place. Her Christian themes also feel thrown in. But all and all she writes well. Well enough to make this reader finisher her book in just two days!
