What a great, fast read. A daughter finds out after her dad died that he had a different life that was totally foreign to the one she knew. She's looking for answers and one special man helps her find her way.
I have to say I was quite impressed with this novel. The author has woven an intriguing tale of mystery-suspense with a few twists and turns thrown in. Most impressive was that I couldn't figure out who the "villain" of the story was - always a huge plus in my books. The story is told from several POV's, namely the two very likeable protagonists, Gabrielle and Pierce. I'm a huge fan of reading the male POV and wish more novels would follow this approach. I absolutely adored both protagonists, Ga [...]

Review as it appears on my blog Amy's Book World:A mixture of romance and mystery, "Maybe too Good to Be True" is a great story that leaves you wanting more. The main story centers around Gabrielle trying to figure out who conspired to set her father up 40 years ago. This lead to him leaving town at that time. Gabrielle's interest in this is because Elizabeth Hastings contacts her so she can right her husband's wrong. Gabrielle being a determined southern girl she won't let it rest until she unc [...]
My Review:Feisty heroine is pulled back from the brink of financial ruin by Fairy Godmother. Meets Fairy Godson. Hate at First Sight. Will the Feisty Heroine and Fairy Godson work out their differences? Will the mystery of the Feisty Heroine's Dad's undoing be solved? Will Alyson ever stop calling Pierce the Fairy Godson? In a word - yes. And that's all I'm going to say about that. :)The Good: I loved the characters in this book, especially Gabrielle, Pierce, and Elizabeth. Heck, I even loved to [...]
NOTE: I received a complimentary copy of Too Good To Be True in return for my honest review. This does not in any way reflect upon my review. All thoughts/opinions of this novel are 100% my own.My Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5Review: First, let me get the one negative thing I have to say out, I did not care for the book cover. It did not seem to convey what the story was about once you became involved with it. In fact, just based on the cover alone, this was probably not a book that I would have ch [...]

As she is struggling to find a way to pay the electric bill a strange summons comes in the mail from Elizabeth Hastings. Elizabeth is determined to right a terrible wrong that was exacted on Gabrielle March’s family.This was a great book, full of finding love and becoming a part of a family, but also mystery and intrigue [...]
Maybe too Good to Be True is a very good romance-mystery and I enjoyed reading it.Gabrielle is, (as stated above) a little insecure about herself. She is very talented (and has tangible proof!), but still doubts that she can be happy. I believe her upbringing had a lot to do about that and I'm glad that she consciously fought to overcome it. Gabrielle is loving, loyal, unspoiled and very smart lady. Finding Elizabeth and therefore, some truths about her father couldn't happen to a better person. [...]
This book was a wonderfully written romantic mystery. I loved the plot in this story. It kept me hooked from the very first page. The intrigue starts at the beginning and doesn't let up until the very end. At first I thought this book was going to be predictable, but I'm glad I was wrong. The characters were interesting and completely misunderstood. Pierce was nothing like he seemed to Gabbi. He isn't just some playboy skating through life. He wants love and a family. Gabbi isn't just some gold [...]
Romantic suspense is not usually to my liking, since I can spot a bad guy a mile away in most cases, and then I have to plod through hundreds of pages to get to the end, which I’ve known about for days. But I have to make an exception in the case of Maybe Too Good To Be True. It’s a rags to riches story about Gabrielle March, who is scrambling to find ways to pay her bills when a true fairy godmother discovers her and provides her with wealth and family. Maybe too good to be true? How about [...]
I really enjoyed this book and loved the main characters, especially the hero. I fell in love with Pierce immediately. It's funny how certain characters get your attention and Pierce was one of those for me. My only problem with both Gabrielle and Pierce was that they jumped to conclusions about each other way too fast. They needed to talk and think things through.I loved how there was both romance and mystery intertwined in this book. It made for a fast-paced read and left readers truly caring [...]
*I received this book from to review*I really enjoyed this book. It was very easy to sit back and lose myself in the story. I enjoyed that it wasn't overly romantic, mushy, or sexual. This was an easy read to take to the cabin and relax outside and read. Every one of the characters were easy to like and follow. I really enjoyed how the author twisted them all up in to a tidy little knot that was fun to watch unravel. This was the first of Christy McKee's books that I have read but certainly won [...]
Christy pens "Maybe too Good to Be True" a mystery romance in a well developed plot with interesting and totally misunderstood characters. The story actually held my attention from beginning to end. A truly fun read for all mystery, romance lovers.This review is based on a complimentary copy which was provided for an honest review.
I won this book in a holiday contest.Right away, I was drawn to the characters. Gabrielle is immediately likable and Pierce is, well, Pierce. I did feel that the relationship moved a bit too quickly for my liking, but that didn't detract from the story. The mystery component was interesting. I look forward to the next book.
