Jeremy Marsh is a born skeptic and a science journalist who specializes in debunking the supernatural. When he hears about ghostly apparitions in a cemetery in Boone Creek, North Carolina, he leaves his beloved New York City for this small, rural town-and what his instincts tell him could make a great story. What he doesn't plan on is meeting and falling hopelessly in love with Lexie Darnell, who is sure of one thing: her future is here in Boone Creek, close to the people she loves. Now, if the young lovers are to be together, Jeremy must make a difficult choice: return to the life he knows in New York, or do something he could never do before... take a giant leap of faith.

I was completely bored reading True Believer. The story lacked substance and build-up. The lovemaking scene was rushed and a huge letdown - it was almost like the author was embarassed. Plus, the ending re: the mystery was disappointing. Sorry, not usually such a complainer but it was a dud.

Still love Nicholas Sparks, but this wasn't one of my favorites. Still good, but not GREAT. I didn't like the fact that the main characters are SOOO in love in a couple of days and felt the need to hop into bed within a couple of days.
I am reading the sequel, and I hope it doesn't disappoint me in the morals area....

" True Believer" is absolutely an awesome story. I also really like "At First Sight." I would recommend people to read first "True Believer" then you can read "At First Sight" I like that finally Jeremy's wish came true, and the way the miracle happened.

This novel is true to its name, it makes Jeremy a "True Believer" that miracles really can happen, and without scientific proof.
