Publisher's Summary

It’s a tale as old as time: The bad boy meets the good girl. He makes a daring proposition. Then the boy gets a mysterious head injury and loses a year of his life....

The first time I meet Rickie, I don’t know what to make of him. The second time we meet, he doesn’t remember the six hours we spent together. Or standing me up afterward.

I’m not the same, either. I’ve got secrets. I’ve told lies. Bad boys aren’t my type, anyway. Even the ones with troubled gray eyes.

But now we’re roommates. Cue the awkward moments in the hallway when he’s wearing only a towel and a smile. He’s determined to win me over, and his talented hands weaken my resolve.

It’s all fun and games until my past rears its ugly head and his secrets come to light, shaking our fragile connection, maybe even breaking it....

Note: This is Daphne Shipley's story. Contents include Vermont-y ice cream flavors, nerdy awkwardness, tattoos, and a playboy grandpa.

A mystery wrapped in a small town romance. Sarina at her best

Sarina is a auto buy author for me and she has never write a book I do not enjoy. True North is a favorite of mine because the Shipley is the most wholesome American family but everyone has a cross to bear. I love how the mystery of their missed date unravels as the story progresses and the character arc she put them through. The amazing thing about Sarina’s writing is that underneath the wholesome setting of rural Vermont lies the darkness that’s pull you in. As the story builds Zachary really elevates his story arc with his performance. Thank you for giving Daphne such an amazing story. You truly outdid yourself with this.

Another brilliant True North story

Sarina does it again! I was unsure any this book based on the short description but I was completely wrong. I couldn’t have loved Rickey, our hero, any more. And Daphne Shipley too, of course. Both H/h had very interesting back stories. They grew their friendship and let that blossom. To see how’s their past and present come together in the end was crazy and awesome.

Another winner from Sarina Bowen

I love this author so much! I have all her books and know every one of them is a credit well spent. This book will make you laugh, cry, and encourage you to take a nice cold shower. The narrators do a fantastic job. Don't wait. Start listening now!

AMAZING!

So I waited to review the True North series until after I had experienced all of them. This one and Fireworks are my favorites! I don’t want to post any spoilers....

Loved this book and love this series!

This is my favorite book of the series tied with the first book and the book before this one. This has some suspense and mystery which I really liked. Ricky is such a neat character. He’s different than most book boyfriends and I really like that.
Love the Shipley family, especially Gramps.
Will there be any more? I really hope so!

An emotional story with amazing narration

I absolutely loved this audiobook. Callie and Zachary did an amazing job with Daphne and Ricky. I’m not gonna go into the plot, that’s what the blurb is for, what I do want to say is that I was so happy to see Sarina bringing important issues out in their story. I don’t want to give anything away, so I’m not going to name the issue raised but I do want to thank Sarina for tackling it with care and sensitivity while highlighting the gender bias that society has placed on it.

So not only do you get a great love story with a new take on a second chance romance. (He has memory loss so doesn’t remember their first meeting) BUT you get a hidden life lesson and I love love love books that have hidden or shouting in the front style life lessons. I think it always says a lot about an author who is willing to weave a life lesson into their plot. Whether it’s intentional or accidental, I don’t care, this one was done well.

I loved discovering all the little details that came to light with regards to Ricky’s past. It was like being a little detective uncovering the clues and at the end we get the full picture.

Of course this book isn’t all heavy heavy, there is light and laughter too with the raucous Shipley clan on the farm and some homicidal chickens!!! This book is well paced and well balanced. I got all the laughs, feels, steam and life lessons rolled into one very tidy package.

With fantastic narration by both Callie and Zachary, you really can’t go wrong with this audiobook.

Enjoyable listen

I enjoyed listening to this book. I knocked a star off because it lost its pace around the middle, and Daphne was a bit frustrating at times - but still a good story.
