I received this copy for free from library thing. This was a sweet story. It is about Paige who is a single mom who just divorced. She bumps into Everett who she knew from school. Paige lies to Everett about being divorced. Both of them have secrets. Will the secrets and lie keep them apart? The book is well written and I love the character development. This is a lovely easy and quick read.

I think this story had great potential, but you lost me when Paige lies to Everette. The blurb says it's a "little white lie" but to me it's anything but little. I think I could understand more if the story was historical and from a time when divorce was shunned. But really? In today's day and age, it's almost (unfortunately) common. I'm less bothered with the fact that she lied and more bothered by what the lie was. To come up with something like that...something so tragic just to save face? Ye ...more

Finding True North by Audrey Wick a new to me author. This book is first in the Texas Sister's series. A story of a newly divorced mother who meets up with someone from her past. A possible second chance at romance. I enjoyed the characters, dialogue and storyline. Look forward to seeing what the next book brings us.

Excellent book! Being well written with great characters that are well developed mad the story a nice easy read.

Paige and Everett are two people who have loved and lost in the past and aren't really looking for anything new. Yet love can find you when you least expect it and it found these two hard and fast. Problem is there is a little white lie between them that could put what they found at risk before it ever really begins.

I highly recommend this one.

Paige and Everett had both loved and lost before and now they are trying to start a new relationship with lies and lies by omission hindering their way to happiness.
This author wrote real smooth, connecting things easily and writing conversations and emotions which rang true making this an enjoyable read.

A simple lie about her status jumbles what could be the start if a nice relationship with high school friend, Everett. He harbors his own secret-too recent and painful to voice.

This is a difficult review for me to write. Finding True North is a solid 3.5-star book with the potential to be a full 5. The reason for my rating isn’t that the book was bad or lacking in any way, simply that my life experiences aren’t allowing me to connect with the characters. It was a good book. The writing was engaging, the formatting was phenomenal. It was the perfect book to curl up and enjoy my coffee with on a cold winter day.

I really enjoyed reading Finding True North by Audrey Wick, book one in The Texas Sisters series. This is my first book by Ms. Wick, but definitely not my last. This sweet and wonderful story is about two lost souls and a white lie that could destroy a future between them. Paige loves living in her small town, riding her bike nearly everywhere, and working near the courthouse square. After her divorce, she believes she is the focus of the gossip mill as well as her neighbors. The day her divorce ...more

In Finding True North, debut author Audrey Wick delivers an engaging story about losses, fears, and second chances.

Paige Frederick loves living in a small town, but after her divorce, she needs time to fit in her new role as a single parent and find her balance between work, family, and some alone time. When Everett Mullins comes back in her life, she prefers to tell him a “white lie”. But it’s commonly known that if feelings are involved, also white, defensive lies could put in jeopardy new rel

This novel about a small-town girl who is reeling from a divorce was a quick, enjoyable read. Since the reader never learns the reason for the breakup, I spent the whole book asking myself if Paige was emotionally healthy enough to jump into a new relationship so soon after her marriage ended (not sure she was - and maybe the lie she tells is proof of that?) Still, the plot was fast enough that I didn't have time to get bored, and I fell in love with the characters. I wanted them all - even Migu ...more

Finding True North is the first book I have read written by Audrey Wick. I found it to be an enjoyable, drama rich romance. The characters were likable. Paige especially is a complex character. Everett is just as he said, a straight forward simple individual. The supporting characters were for the most part charming, complex and realistic.

Paige and Everett made a wonderful couple. Other than Paige’s lie in the beginning, she is a charming if private person. I didn’t really understand why she sai

In a small town everyone not only knows your name but your business, especially business that has destroyed your image of yourself. And there really is no getting away with a lie because eventually someone, if not yourself, will spill the truth in a way that you don’t want to happen. These are details that Paige forgot when she unexpectedly runs into her high school crush in the grocery store on the day her divorce is finalized. One little white lie or maybe two if yo

This is the first book I have read by Audrey Wick. If I am not mistaken, Finding True North, the first in the Texas Sisters Series, may be Audrey's first published novel. It was very interesting and I thought very well written. She does a great job of developing the characters in her story. The small town atmosphere of Sequin, Texas was one many could appreciate. Her main character Paige Frederick is a recently divorced young mom. In the first scene of the book she has just left the court house ...more

This is my first book from this author, Audrey Wick but believe me it will not be my last. Write her name down folks and remember her. She has a a wonderful way of writing that drew me in and kept my throughout the entire book. I am one of those people who find an author who calls to me, you are mine for life. So now to the book. This is a Second Chance Romance book in my eye and heart...and yes it is Texas too. So can't wrong much there.
Paige and Everett knew each other as kids well teenagers.

This has been another sweet small town Texas story from Audrey Wick and I really enjoyed reading it. It’s actually the first book in a duo called The
Texas Sisters but stands alone fine. I read book two before reading this one and there were absolutely no issues.
Finding True North stars newly divorced mother Paige Frederick, who is doing her best to be all things to her two year-old son Nathan. His father didn’t want children and doesn’t show any interest in the little boy, making Paige’s effort

Paige is starting over and has this overwhelming feeling to keep things personal and not on display for her small home town. When she tells a little white lie she quickly realizes that she may be in to far in over her head. Everett comes back home to help his ailing parents but when he runs into his high school crush he is reminded of what he doesn't have. I mean what can go wrong. Can the two find what they are seeking or will a secret two the two of their lives apart?

This book was a fun read.
This was an enjoyable read. I liked the longer length too. I received this in exchange for an honest review on NetGalley. The story is about Paige who has just become divorced and Everett who she knew in high school. Everett has come home to help care for his mother for a month. They meet again in a supermarket during a power outage and Paige lies and tells Everett she is a widow, not divorced and says nothing about her young son Nathan. The plot has them meet for a few “dates”, then Paige tells ...more

Finding True North is a small-town second chance romance that tells the story of Paige and Everett, with slightly more emphasis on Paige. Both are likeable lead characters, and there's a wealth of secondary characters. It is a very every day type of story, and it is probably great for readers that like a slower and more realistic plot. However, it was just okay for me.

I had some trouble getting behind the key lie that drove much of the story, and the secondary characters and plot points didn't

I received Finding True North from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

Paige is a single mum trying to figure out life after her divorce. She runs into Everett, a friend from high school, while grocery shopping and during the conversation, she tells him that she's a widow rather than admitting to a failed marriage.

The story sounds like a fun read from the synopsis but I was thoroughly disappointed. I get not wanting to say you're divorced to someone you haven't seen in years but to say
