Présentation de l'éditeur

"[I]t was so hard to put down. I laughed with the character, and cried with the character. So many emotions lie in this one book. Get your hands on it as soon as you can!" Colleen Peterson, For the Love of Books

"In this touching novel characters are painted with true and realistic personalities that make them memorable, lovable, and endearing. I laughed out loud, felt the deep loneliness of the single life, and was strengthened by Eliza’s patient faith in the face incredible trial." Emily Debenham, Gamila's Book Review

Eliza Dunmar is about to turn thirty-one and fears her best days are behind her. Soon she'll be too old to attend church in a singles ward, her career as a painter is no longer considered cool, and she feels too old to use the excuse that she's "just starting out" to explain why she still can't pay the bills. The only man interested in her is a scruffy, video game addicted nerd who is the first to admit that they are all wrong for each other.

When her beloved Aunt Nora calls from England and begs her to visit, Eliza leaps at the chance. Even better? Nora had the perfect romance with her late husband and is eager to share the tale. As Eliza sets out to immortalize this courtship in a series of paintings, she learns a lesson that will change her outlook on life and love forevermore.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Clean, mature romance 12 décembre 2012
Par J. Blakely - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
So many books written for adults are filled with violence, graphic sex, valueless characters, etc. If you like that, more power to you, but I like a romance I could actually imagine myself participating in - and those aren't it.
I really enjoyed this book. She is a good writer, and the characters are well-written. Most "clean" romances are written for the YA audience, but this is about adults who live independent lives. They also happen to be religous and keep the commandments. That's win-win for me. Highly recommended!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Realistic characters, happy end 13 novembre 2011
Par K. Goldmund - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The thing I liked most about this book was that the characters were all a little flawed in very realistic ways. The protagonist, Eliza, gets dumped at the beginning of the book by her sort-of boyfriend, Len, and we see how she works throughout the story to recognize what she's done wrong and then to correct it. Len isn't exactly the model-handsome male with beautifully sculpted muscles, either, perfect except for the fact that he's not yet together with Eliza. Then there's her friend Hattie, who's torn between religious beliefs and a "wayward" family member. But all of these characters have strengths, too, to help balance out their weaknesses. In short, they were human, the kind of person we meet every day, even in the mirror. We also see that appearances can be deceiving. Who has a perfect marriage? Who's an interfering busybody? Who's a good man despite his lack of fashion sense? The answers might surprise you. I don't usually read "chick lit" because I find it so hard to relate to, not being an almost-perfect person myself, but once I started this book, I didn't want to stop, and raced through it in one evening. It might not be perfect, but I didn't notice if it wasn't, because I was simply enjoying the read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great story! 18 novembre 2011

Paint Me True is a great story with realistic, fully believable characters. The writing is excellent and pulled me in from the very beginning. The story begins by Eliza being dumped by her almost accidentally acquired boyfriend and the story progresses as she learns that the most important parts of love are much different and much deeper then she believed when she was younger. There's a few twists and turns in her tale that kept me from being able to put the book down. I highly recommend this book!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 People are not always what they seem 5 novembre 2012
Par Shanda Cottam - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Paint Me True is a story of people and situations that are not what they first seem. Not in a suspenseful, mysterious way, but in a perspective-changing, now-I-see-the-whole-picture kind of way.

Despite her reservations and intentions otherwise, Eliza somehow remains in relationship with her best friend's nerdy, scruffy, video game-loving cousin Len for six months. The story opens as they arrive at a very nice steakhouse on a big date. Eliza expects to be turning down a marriage proposal and is instead dumped by Len.

Eliza is a talented religious artist who has watched all of her female family members but one waste away and lose their battles with cancer. She has a special relationship with her Aunt Nora, and doesn't hesitate to hop on a plane to England when her aunt needs her help to recover from a fall, especially after the disastrous break-up date she had just experienced.

In England, Eliza meets handsome nurse Colin. They hit it off and start dating. During her stay with Aunt Nora, she agrees to paint several memories her aunt has with her deceased husband that are not recorded by photographs. Through her interactions with her late uncle's family and some unexpected discoveries, Eliza learns that things are not always what they appear to be.

What I enjoyed most was experiencing Eliza and Len's relationship through flashbacks as she painted. I was pleasantly surprised as I got to know Len better through her memories. He was still annoying in some ways, and I didn't care for the video-game obsession, but I soon realized first impressions are often wrong.

I'm not going to give away any more of the story, but I will say that Eliza suffers heartbreak more than once and things are not easy for her. She has a lot to make up for and pays the price for her selfishness. She needed a wake-up call and she got it.

While Paint Me True started a bit slow for me, by the end I was involved in the story and stayed up after my family went to bed to find out how things would turn out for Eliza. I liked the ending and think that those who enjoy clean, LDS romance will like it, too.

Review originally published on LDS Women's Book Review.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Guess what--nobody's perfect! 13 novembre 2011
Par Cici - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
In the beginning I wasn't sure I wanted to read the book because Eliza (and friends) just weren't that likable. But, growth, change, awareness, and understanding come to the rescue. Oh, to have perception and clarity of understanding in every moment! That comes only after traveling a rough road. I found I didnt want to miss a step on the journey. This was a good book with a bit of a twist to the romance. I won't tell you the twist, but it's a good one. I'm glad to say E. M. Tippets is now on my radar.
