A North So True

(Near & Far)

4.08  ·  Rating details ·  64 ratings  ·  6 reviews
Cold climate, hot hero... a snow-kissed escape with a twist of mystery, adventure, and Scandinavian wildness.

Love has its own latitude.

Zoe Bailey's transient childhood left her with a passport full of stamps, an ambiguous accent, and nowhere to call home. And as a grown-up, her career at a relentlessly slick London PR firm has been half-hearted at best – until she travels

I received an Advanced Review Copy of A North So True in order to give an honest review.

It's always a pleasure for me to read Serena Clarke's Near and Far novels! The places are described with beautiful imagery, and the author makes an effort to include location-specific details and pop culture references to enhance the reading of the text. In this novel in particular, I loved the inclusion of Swedish vocabulary and the wilderness conservation details. I would describe this as a "romance novel w

I enjoyed this atmospheric, well-written suspenseful tale. The romance is suitable for adults and contains quite a bit of angst and deception, as we see various sides of several characters.
The main actors are a PR lady and a wolf researcher, and the setting is wild Sweden. A snowy, wintry, land, claustrophobic because people can't get far away from others and everyone knows everyone.

If you would enjoy reading about reintroducing and monitoring wolves, or just a holiday romance with a differenc

Gifted copy for honest review.

I really enjoyed reading A North So True. This is about Zoe and Jakob. The story and characters were good. This a a good mixture of business and wildlife. A good read for the evenings or weekend.

A beautiful story wrapped into an opportunity to learn a little of Swedish culture. With the study of wolves and the beauty and intense cold of winter in Sweden.

A North So True combines the best of so many worlds: fast-paced corporate marketing in the city, getting back to nature in the Swedish countryside, family connections and family secrets, icy climate, warm fires, fika, and lots of love.

Every bit of it is done well. Zoe and Jakob (a quiet, well-mannered, but very alpha male) have the requisite chemistry for my liking, and I appreciate their relationship ebbing and flowing naturally. I love the party Zoe attended – so fun to see a character loosen

4.5 Stars - Mix in some corporate nonsense and saving wild animals and you have a great weekend read! The writing was smooth and left you wanting more. The romance factor was just enough that you craved to read the next chapter as you were wanting the characters to see what was right in front of them the whole time. Will they overcome the challenges? You will have to read to find out!

I received a free copy from Instafreebie in exchange for an honest review.
