There is an element of suspense in Truth Be Told which I also really like. It sets itself apart from other historical romances because Amelia and Ben's story is diving into the world of subterfuge, mystery, and the adventure of uncovering wrong doing.
While I found the villains to be predictable, the story in itself was a fast drive through excitement and detective-like sleuth-work. It's a good read, with some fun twists and turns and two very likable main characters! I recommend it to anyone who loves historical romance with some kick in the pants action.
About Truth Be Told:
If you're reading a historical romance with suspense--do you like the action more than trying to figure out who the "bad guy" is? Or do you want the bad guy to catch you by surprise and be super hard to figure out?
