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

    Recommend however beware of bad language!

    The story line is good and makes you keep reading, however, I am disappointed in Barbara's filthy language in this book. It is not up to par for her writing! Get with it Barbara and keep the smut out of your pages! You don't have to use filthy words to get the point across. I won't continue reading her books if I come across another with such vulgar language!

    Terrific

    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!

    Lovely romantic tale ...

    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 ...

    Wonderful

    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!

    Beautiful story

    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!

    Amazing !! Only ay word is needed

    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 :)

    Not quite the best book I've ever read. However, I did really enjoy how the two love stories ran together. I also liked the characters.

    Another excellent novel!

    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.

    Couldn't put it down.

    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.
