I really enjoyed this book. I only read it so that I would have the background for "At First Sight," which was also excellent. It's a must read for the background, but it's also enjoyable. What I didn't particularly enjoy was the supernatural element.

Nicholas Sparks books are like cheesecake: sweet and fluffy, satisfying, and hard not to devour in one sitting. True Believer is the story of Jeremy Marsh, a cynical New York writer who makes his living debunking supernatural phenomena. As the story opens, Jeremy is headed to Boone Creek, South Carolina to investigate mysterious lights that appear in the small towns historic cemetery. There, he encounters all sorts of amusing southern stereotypes: a talk-your-ear-off gas station attendant, a motel filled with stuffed forest critters, and a mayor overflowing with southern hospitality. What Jeremy doesnt expect is the sassy, worldly town librarian, Lexie Darnell. As he comes closer to solving the mystery of the cemetery lights, Jeremy begins to dread the day hell have to return to New York and leave Lexie.

This is a breeze to read, perfect for making a bus commute fly by. The dialogue between Jeremy and Lexie is fun and snappy, and although the conclusion of the book is predictable, there are a few surprises along the way.

I enjoyed reading "True Believer". Sure, there was no great tragedy, but it's a nice read when you're not in the mood for a tearjerker. I thought the book had good character development, in that I cared what happened to the lovers of the story.

If you're looking for an easy read romantic story with a little mystery thrown in, this is your book.

Big city writer goes to a small town and meets the woman he is to fall in love with. Nicholas Sparks typical love story......with a (dare I say it) happy ending.
