Book Review of Yours Truly, Thomas by Rachel Fordham

You’ll notice that my reviews will be somewhat different from now on . . . Tell me how you like them.

About: For three years, Penny Ercanbeck has been opening other people’s mail. Dead ends are a reality for clerks at the Dead Letter Office. Still she dreams of something more–a bit of intrigue, a taste of romance, or at least a touch less loneliness. When a letter from a brokenhearted man to his one true love falls into her hands, Penny seizes this chance to do something heroic. It becomes her mission to place this lost letter into the hands of its intended recipient.

Thomas left his former life with no intention of ending up in Azure Springs, Iowa. He certainly didn’t expect a happy ending after what he had done. All he wanted to do was run and never look back. In a moment of desperation, he began to write, never really expecting a reply.

When Penny’s undertaking leads her to the intriguing man who touched her soul with his words, everything grows more complicated. She wants to find the rightful owner of the letter and yet she finds herself caring–perhaps too much–for the one who wrote it.





My Review of Truly Yours, Thomas: Letters are one of my favorite things and I often leave notes instead of having a serious conversation. Which made me love the idea of Truly Yours, Thomas. I loved the letters but maybe the rest of the story line was a little bit unrealistic. Read the book to find out more . . . The town was interesting, the characters somewhat in your face pushy that made me wonder if it fit with the setting and if people would really be so friendly in an almost harsh way. And the whole part with Thomas at dinner? That didn’t make too much sense for him to be the one to do it. In all I kinda almost loved this book; it was good but there were some things that could have stronger and the ending just came with a sudden BOOM! and the story was over, the ending pretty much missed in the fact that you expect something else to happen not just a quick letter that ends the book.

I loved the name of Penny’s dog though.

Enjoyable and almost lovable. I suggest 16 up for romance and slight violence.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review and am truly happy to provide it.


Do you prefer my old way of reviewing or the new?
