Paint Me True/E.M. Tippetts
Eliza is a 30 year old professional painter who only has a few months left in her singles ward. Time is not on her side. She wanted to have met someone by now and started living her happily ever after. Of course she has had plenty of proposals in the past, but she couldn't see herself with those men.
Fresh out of a relationship with Len, which caught even her off guard, she receives a phone call from her Aunt Nora, who lives in London. Needing help, Eliza gets on the next available flight to assist her Aunt, who is the closet she has had to a mother in a while.
While in London memories from the past come into view, and a secret that has been hidden for so long comes out and the truth cant be hidden any longer.
Will Eliza be able to find love? Will she be able to overcome a heartache she has lived with her whole life? With a little help, and her love of painting, she will learn a lesson she wont forget!
This book had me riveted from the beginning! E.M. Tippetts is such a great Author. I could put myself into the main characters shoes (minus the proposals, haha). Being the age I am, and still in the single's ward it hit so close to home. So it wasn't hard to feel the way Eliza felt.
If you like to read, you will love this book. If you like to paint, you will love this book. If you are in a singles ward, you will love this book. If you love to date, you will love this book. Pretty much whoever you are, you should pick up this book!
So many things happen in this book that It 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! Keep a look out for some of E.M. Tippets other books. One is called "Time and Eternity" and she will also have a new one coming out in December called "Someone Else's Fairytale".
I also need to mention that if I go to England anytime soon, I now know how to word things like a proper Englishman. haha
