Truly Yours is the book subscription service from Barbour Publishing. Since they are a Christian book publisher, they provide inspirational fiction books. You receive one new release book every four to six weeks. Here’s some further information on their service.
I’ll share the contents with you here. My review is not for the book I received because I haven’t read it yet, but instead will be for the content and subscription experience.
These shipments arrive in padded envelopes. This one arrived in good shape clearly labeled so that I knew what was in the envelope.
The book I received was ‘The Lady in Residence‘ by Allison Pittman (Historical Romance). Here is what the book is about:
‘Young widow Hedda Krause checks into the Menger Hotel in 1915 with a trunk full of dresses, a case full of jewels, and enough cash to pay for a two-month stay, which she hopes will be long enough to meet, charm, and attach herself to a new, rich husband. Her plans are derailed when a ghostly apparition lures her into a long, dark hallway, and Hedda returns to her room to find her precious jewelry has been stolen. She falls immediately under a cloud of suspicion with her haunting tale, but true ghost enthusiasts bring her expensive pieces of jewelry in an attempt to lure the ghost to appear again.
In 2017, Dini Blackstone is a fifth-generation magician, who performs at private parties, but she also gives ghost walk tours, narrating the more tragic historical events of San Antonio with familial affection. Above all, her favorite is the tale of Hedda Krause who, in Dini’s estimation, succeeded in perpetrating the world’s longest con, dying old and wealthy from her ghost story. But then Dini meets Quinn Carmichael, great-great-grandson of the detective who originally investigated Hedda’s case, who’s come to the Alamo City with a box full of clues that might lead to Hedda’s exoneration. Can Dini see another side of the story that is worthy of God’s grace?’
I like this subscription service. I consider this a great way to support authors who, let’s face it, don’t make much money. It’s a purchase directly from the publisher for less than buying it retail, but more than getting the book second hand. I also like that you usually get a heads up for what the next months book selection will be.
The cost of this service is $9.97/month including shipping. For a brand new book, this is a good price.
I will be continuing the subscription.
