Overview

Fans of Kristin Hannah, Luanne Rice and Susan Wiggs will enjoy this emotional and poignant story by #1 NY Times bestselling author Barbara Freethy. In an extraordinary tale of a man and a woman, once parted, now reunited, she brings readers to a place where life's sorrows are wiped away by the power of love.

The last place Lisa Alvarez expected to find herself was babysitting for her ex-sister-in-law's three rambunctious kids. But when Maggie called her up and begged for time alone, something in Lisa made her say yes - for one weekend she'd leave behind the career she'd built and her new fiancé. But Lisa never expected her handsome ex-husband Nick to show up on the doorstep, walking back into her life, and taking over more than the weekend....

Nick can't believe how Lisa has changed over the years - and how she's stayed the same. His heart still races when her eyes catch his. After tragedy pushed them apart, Nick spent eight years rebuilding his life and his soul. Can he risk losing his heart again, for a second chance at true love?

"ONE TRUE LOVE is guaranteed to give readers a few tears and a big smile at the end. A carefully structured, polished novel, where the romance shines. ONE TRUE LOVE is a winner!" Contra Costa Times

"Barbara Freethy is a fresh and exciting voice in women's romantic fiction." Susan Elizabeth Phillips

"Strong and compelling prose." Publisher's Weekly

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
"A pair of wary, emotionally fragile protagonists, a cast of exceptional secondary characters ... and a multilayered plot that deftly interweaves humor, passion, and a tragedy result in a poignant, heartwrenching, yet heartwarming story that is laced with love."

I loved this story! It's touching and romantic and poignant. Some moments made me cry, but it was joyful at the same time. It's about real love and sometimes the tragedy that goes with it, but also the incredible happiness. Beautifully written. I couldn't put it down!

Really enjoyed this story about a man and a woman with a shared history who find each other again. Warm, heartfelt, subtly drawn emotions: it's a winner. The reviewer who complained about the language is really off-base, IMO. This is a wonderfully escapist romantic novel that you won't want to end ...

This is such a wonderful read!! The storyline hooks you from the very beginning, I could never muster enough self control to put the book down even though I have so much else to do! Freethy is truly a beautiful story teller and really knows how to connect with her readers. This is the second book I've read by this author and I can't wait to keep browsing the rest of her books!

The whole story from the first page was just amazing. It kept you turning the pages. (Or clicking to next page) Only thing was so many spelling errors. I'm not by far someone who critiques everything but found it strange to have so many. But the meaning still got across and I am a true Barbara Freethy fan forever :) This is the second book I've read and I will be continuing to read many more. Keep them coming :) Lori

I started this book at 9:30 this morning and finished it at 2:20. I had to keep going. One of the best books I've read. I am an avid reader and this is not a short story. I was an adventure. Mote than just a romance. I would recommend to all.

What a terrific story of love and second chances. The characters were so uniquely drawn, so intelligently written. They were flawed and yet extremely likable. The subplot also added good depth to the story. Lots to love here. A perfect summer read!

I love every book I've read by Barbara Freethy. This story is no exception. The characters are wonderful and this book really has two love stories woven through it. I recommend everyone read this book, but I will say I have seen this novel offered for free on other sites, so you may want to check the price first.

I like the characters in this book. They are real. I was surprised by the spelling and grammer errors not caught by the publisher.

One True Love was the first book I read by author Barbara Freethy. I was twenty - one and my mother had given it to me. So to revisit, Lisa and Nick's journey years later proves how timeless of a read this second chance romance really is. This couple's journey is one of heartbreak, maturity and healing that spans years. One True Love is about finding your voice while listening to your heart. Those skills will eventually lead to the place you belong. Home.

ONE TRUE LOVE written in 2011, a timeless story once again by Barbara Freethy. Lisa preparing for her wedding, a package comes, contents reveals memories that haven't healed. A note from mother who believes in magic, to come home. Living in Los Angeles, her heritage of black hair and blue eyes she blends in. A phone call from her ex sister in law and she's saying yes to babysitting 3 kids for a weekend. What is she thinking, she was someone who changed jobs, apartments, being detached for 8 years. Her boss 30 years older, who she's to wed in a few weeks. His thoughts are getting the new account, and for her to whip out a campaign strategy for it. Nothing like pressure instead of preparing for that special day. Another page turner, all will enjoy. Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
