True Believer is rated 3.6875 out of 5 by 16.
Jeremy Marsh is a born skeptic and a science journalist who specializes in debunking the supernatural. When he hears about ghostly apparitions in a cemetery in Boone Creek, North Carolina, he leaves his beloved New York City for this small, rural town-and what his instincts tell him could make a great story. What he doesn''t plan on is meeting and falling hopelessly in love with Lexie Darnell, who is sure of one thing: her future is here in Boone Creek, close to the people she loves. Now, if the young lovers are to be together, Jeremy must make a difficult choice: return to the life he knows in New York, or do something he could never do before... take a giant leap of faith.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cutest love story I did the mistake of reading this book after 'At First Sight' none the less i loved this book. There was no drama, just a simple and classic love story between a city boy and country girl.The ending in this one made me really happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Very Interesting I could not get into this book there are my parts that could have been left out and it took a while to get interesting. Have read many of Nicholas Sparks books this one didn't compare to all the others it was very disappointing

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So-So For A Nicholas Sparks Novel I love Nicholas' books as much as the next girl, and I have never finished his book disappointed, but I have to say, this book wasn't the best I've read of his and I was rather apathetic in regards to finishing the book. I did enjoy the playful banter between Jeremy and Lexie, but I felt it lacked substance (though most of Sparks' books are relatively the same) and I just wasn't that interested.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Read! This is my second Nicholas Sparks book, and i am liking him more and more! This book was a very entertaining read. Jeremy Marsh is a New York Journalist who has to travel to the small town of Boone Creek to investigate mysterious lights that appear in a cemetary. While in boone creek he meets the Towns libraian, Lexi Darnell. After that, life for jeremy will never be the same. Nicholas Sparks seems to be the expert when it comes to love stories, this one was no expection. An awesome read!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely Tale of Ghosts and Love I listened to this as an audio book and was just charmed by the actor who did the reading. I think I would have liked it reading it in book form as well. Jeremy is a reporter who debunks fortune tellers and weird science stories. He heads to North Carolina where he finds a whole different kind of life from the gas attendant who talks so much you might never get away, from everyone waving at everyone, to a hotel room filled with taxidermy. He is there to write a story on the mysterious lights in the old graveyard. He meets Lexie whose grandmother brought Jeremy to the town. It is a book about the south and their relationship and whether the obstacles can be overcome. It was a nice light love story with an interesting side story of belief in the supernatural. I liked it a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite! This book made me fall in love with all of Nicholas Sparks' novels. I can't stop buying them. It made me cry like a little baby and I just wanted to read it over and over again. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a really good mushy read :)!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice story, but not believable This story was very sweet, and had a good mystery plot to it, but the romance was not very believable to me. Realistically, for how long the two characters knew each other, it didn't make sense to consider them as in love. The ending (which I won't spoil) was very good, but again unrealistic. I just felt that it made for good fiction, but I could not fall into it as much as I have with other books. I am currently reading the sequel, which hopefully will impress me a bit more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Long, Detailed...But Alright For Nicholas Sparks, it was just alright. The whole mystery thing got me going...but the romance didn't. It really can't be cheesy if there isn't much emphasis on the romance bit. Other than that it wasn't a really bad read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Country Mouse/City Mouse I wasn't expecting to like this book, because I don't really care for paranormal stuff, but it wasn't really about that at all. It was a love story between two people who each have emotional baggage from past relationships (who doesn't?), and the main conflict is that they each live very different lives in different cities. Sparks always makes his leading men so funny and charming. A sweet story about making sacrifices for love.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I am so disappointed in this book. I own every book Mr. Sparks has written and they are wonderful. I almost believe that someone else wrote this under his name. It has nothing of the depth that is in his other books - the writing is nothing like his. I feel this is a great read for a teenager but not for a mature (avid reader) individual. I know there is a sequel to this but can't imagine spending money on it. I will thumb through a library copy. I can just hope that he will return to his normal wonderful form of story telling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing book - miraculous!!! This is the fourth book by Nick Sparks that I have had a chance to read... must say... it was amazing... though my timing was a bit weird coz i was reading fluff or as they call it ChickLits just before this one... just as a sort of escape during the summer... but have only one thing to say about the book ... its great!!! Nick Sparks has always written novels that touch the heart... They are about genuine human emotions... although sometimes I tend to think that the people in his novels are a bit unealistic... I mean I have never come across people like the ones depicted in his novels... nonetheless i love them... so what if i don't find people like them in real life... that is why i read... just to assure myself that there is a better world out there somewhere... anyways this book is great... everyone should definitely read it... it ends on an awesome note, without killing off the most lovable character...
