Finding True North is an easy read romance set in Texas. It opens with Paige on the day of her uncontested divorce. Now she’s a single mum to two year old Nathan.
Caught in a power cut at the grocery store, Paige bumps into high-school friend Everett. He’s come back to Seguin to help care for his mother. Over the next couple of weeks Paige and Everett meet up, they enjoy each other’s company, but neither is being completely honest. In the end, any future relationship they might have together looks doomed when Paige reveals her lie. Will this be the end for them?
This is a light, clean romance with much of the storyline taken up with parenting, and single mother-hood issues. At times, I felt that too much minute detail was over-explained, which encouraged me to skip through sections. This would probably suit readers who are new to romance novels, who are yet to want more from this genre trope. For a book to stand out in this saturated category, I like to see several exciting twists and turns or unexpected elements.
