Book Review: True Love Way

By Cindy Roesel

Just about everything old is new again in Marlo Spencer’s life. She’s the Queen Bee of retro and the main character in Nancy Scrofano’s debut novel, TRUE LOVE WAY. She’s celebrating the renaissance of 50’s, 60’s & 70’s television, movies and collectibles in her cozy southern California apartment and trying to hook up with Josh, an old flame from the past, no matter how many lies and secrets get in the way.

That’s what kind of annoys me from the beginning. I mean, come on! He dumped you twelve years ago and you haven’t heard from him since! He ran off to Paris and now you want closure? Okay, I’ll give you that because you’re a really nice person and you have great friends and your BFF, Nik is going to protect you, even though you don’t recognize that he really likes you. And you did have a “pact” with Josh...if he returned, you would see him.

Nancy Scrofano intricately weaves complex relationship paths throughout TRUE LOVE WAY and that’s makes for interesting fiction. Some might seem predictable at first, but don’t be fooled. I’m not giving anything away.

In addition to celebrating Nancy’s novel, TRUE LOVE WAY, it’s the celebration of the new publishing house, Simon and Fig. TRUE LOVE WAY has been published by Simon and Fig, overseen by writer-turned publisher, Lucie Simone. This is her first project as a publisher and we wish her well. We wish them both good luck.

Both Nancy and Lucie can be found on their Facebook (Nancy/Lucie) and Twitter (Nancy/Lucie) pages and websites (Nancy/Lucie). TRUE LOVE WAY is available on Amazon and you can always find Nancy Scrofano at The Chick Lit Bee.
