Detailed plot synopsis reviews of True Confessions

Hope comes to Gospel, Idaho from California to escape a midget stalker and to write fictional tabloid stories. What she finds is a handsome, very available sheriff who is just as confused as she is about finding love. They struggle to overcome their own fears and along the way find out that they have both been less than truthful about themselves and their pasts. Rachel Gibson is a very funny, romantic writer. She's one of my new favorites!
