  • So much anticipation!

    Oh me nerves! I spent this entire book much the same as Rickie, waiting for the other shoe to drop. Or maybe it was the same as Daphne, waiting for everyone to find out? These two had a past, but not really. They have a current, but it is clouded by that ‘not really’ past. They have issues, she wants to forget, he wants to remember. But as always, things you don’t want people to know always come out, and the things you want to remember, you sometimes wish you didn’t. One thing not in question, for that ‘not really’ past, and this current, is the attraction and connection between these two. That neither one of them can deny, and that was awesome to watch develop and come to fruition. Wonderfully done with dual narration, it captured the characters exactly as I expected. This being a true north book, we get lots of Shipley fam interference and updates, as both our characters realize they are not alone and truly loved, they just needed to look around <3

  • More Shipleys!

    My obsession with Sarina Bowen and the Shipley Family grows with every book. Zachary Webber is the perfect Ricky: insanely confident, funny, and emotionally vulnerable. His narration completely brought Ricky to life and when the big twist came, I was a sobbing mess. Callie Dalton is Daphne Shipley, complex, a little mysterious, and a lot brave. These two break your heart but their story is amazing and beautiful. I’ll never get enough of the Shipley family!

  • Entertaining

    4.5 Star Review of Waylaid (True North # 8) by Sarina Bowen AUDIO REVIEW: This is the eighth book and was a great addition to the True North series. The narrators Zachary Webber and Callie Dalton did a good job bringing this story to life for me. They were easy to listen to with pleasing voices that did justice to Rickie and Daphne’s characters. Daphne and Rickie have history, although brief, thanks to the accident that caused Rickie to lose a year of his life thanks to an accident. This was at times emotional as Rickie struggled. Daphne wants to forget the past, but Rickie wants to remember. Can they both come to terms with the past and in doing so move on or will it all be too hard? It wouldn’t be a True North book without interference from family members and this one is no exception. Waylaid was emotional, funny, sweet and well written with characters that are likeable and easy to relate to, even if they were frustrating at times. Can the bad boy capture the heart of the good girl? One click and find out.

  • Loved Rickie and Daphne!

    I knew I needed a book about Rickie from the first time we laid eyes on him in Heartland. He was such an enigma to me and I knew that if we were to get a glimpse into what him, him that I would consume it in a day (I did). I have said this in just about every True North review to this day but every time I start these books, I remember how good it feels to be back on the Shipley farm with one of my favorite fictional families in the entire universe. Right from the get go we see Rickie almost dying bc his poor body isn't used to farm work quite yet (lol) and we see Daphne acting quite strange. Speaking of enigma's, I have ALSO been dying to get Daphne's story because she has always been the Shipley that I have feel the least connected to. I think it's because when we first met Griffin she was still younger and she was in the background and then away at school ever since. There was a tension between these two that we eventually find out stems from a meeting and budding friendship that Rickie knows nothing about. He went through some kind of traumatic injury years ago and just straight up can't remember about an entire year of his life. I just KNEW right then and there that there was going to be some very delicious twists and turns in this book. Boy was I right. As certain memories and even parts of Daphne's past at Harkness start surfacing I began to have some suspicions about not only why Rickie's memory was like it was, but who might be involved. I was right on somethings, wrong on others. The important part was how amazingly intricate it all was and how beautifully Bowen tied it all together. I was downright obsessed with the chemistry that Daphne and Rickie had, too. It was so hot and palpable. The cherry on top was Daphne mending fences with her family after the entire truth came out AND of course Grandpa Shipley gettin' some. LOL Love, love, LOVED this book and I don't want my time with this family to ever end.

  • One of my favorites!

    Sarina Bowen's True North series has been one I've enjoyed from the very beginning and I love that we are still going! We've been introduced to both Rickie Ralls and Daphne Shipley in previous books, but I was so excited to read their tale and it was definitely one that will stay with me for some time. Daphne Shipley is back at home after leaving the school she had wanted to attend for years after something occurs that sends her reeling. She's keeping secrets from her family about why it is she's switched schools. When she realizes that the boy she met years earlier, on a six hour drive they took together, is her new summer roommate, she's definitely thrown for a loop. Especially when he doesn't remember her! Rickie is Dylan Shipley's college roommate and he's staying and working at the Shipley farm over the summer while he rents out his house to be able to save some extra money. Rickie is also still dealing with a traumatic event that happened to him that caused him to forget a period of time. He's in therapy and he is trying desperately to remember, but it's been slow going. Will he eventually remember that he knew Daphne before this summer? The connection between Rickie and Daphne was awesome ad undeniable. They not only had the physical chemistry, but they got each other on a level that most others wouldn't given the things they both had been through. I liked the slow burn of this relationship and one of my favorite things was the mystery surrounding what had happened to Rickie. The way it all unraveled as the book went on gave you just enough to keep you on the edge of your seat and I loved it. Waylaid is one of my favorite books I've read this year. Going back to visit the Shipley's in Vermont is always great, but there was something about this one that was that much sweeter.
