“Too Good To Be True” by Carola Lovering

RFM team members share a book they’ve enjoyed.

This summer read is a true page turner.

Too Good to Be True, the follow-up to Carola Lovering’s debut novel, Tell Me Lies, is a perfect summer beach read and will keep you turning the pages to see where the story will go next. 

Told from three different perspectives, one of which is set thirty years earlier, the lives of the main characters are interwoven throughout the book in ways you don’t see coming. 

Skye Starling, newly engaged after a whirlwind courtship, is on cloud nine after finally finding Mr. Right. Tall, dark, and handsome, Burke Michaels is everything she was looking for in a man and more, but is he too good to be true? 

We hear Burke’s side of the story by way of the journal entries he wrote for his therapist, and we soon learn that Burke is hiding a big secret from Skye – a wife and children. 

Burke’s wife Heather’s story begins thirty years earlier, when she and Burke were high school sweethearts, determined to escape their impoverished town and dysfunctional families and make better lives for themselves. Heather’s friendship with the woman for whom she babysits during those early years was one of the more touching relationships in the book, right up until tragedy strikes, effectively putting an end to their friendship and changing the course of Heather’s life.

The twists in the plot will keep you surprised right up until the last page, with enough love, betrayal, greed, and revenge to go around.

Margaret Thompson never thought she’d be a business owner (or a mom for that matter!), but after realizing a need for a high quality, content-focused magazine for Richmond area families, she dove in! With twenty years of marketing and project management under her belt, she pulls all of the pieces together each month to get RFM out to our eager readers. Mom of two young boys, Margaret and her husband Chris live in Hanover County.
