A fun love story that certainly has its share of troubles and crosses a couple of lines in the sand that Christian fiction hasn’t for some time.
It’s a fun story written in a style that’s sweet and the reader can easily imagine the characters traipsing through their surroundings and struggles. Molly Lovelace is an…well, let’s just say interesting heroine. Some of her flaws became distracting after a bit and not quite as humorous as they were in the beginning. I did feel a bit sorry for her as the story went on.
It’s a bit hard to write the review of this book without giving away too many details. I will say it hasn’t been my favorite novel that I’ve read this year. It really has nothing to do with the quality in which it was written, setting or characters. It just…didn’t quite ring true for me as a book I’d like to read over again. I think portions of the story could have been cut for heightened flow and that’s what slowed me down more than anything.
However, I will say that the love story between Molly and our hero (forgive me, I can’t remember his name) is very endearing. They had their lessons to learn though and I greatly appreciated that the novel wasn’t afraid to share those.
More about the novel...
Molly Lovelace dreams of a life without cares in Lockhart, Texas. She also dreams of handsome wrangler Bailey Garner, her ardent but inconsistent beau. The problem is, with Bailey's poor prospects, she just can't fit the two dreams together.
Then mysterious stranger Edward Pierrepont sweeps into town--and her life--and for the first time Molly wonders if she's met the man who can give her everything. But he won't be in Lockhart long and while he talks about their glorious future together, she can't quite get Bailey out of her mind.
What's a girl to do with all these decisions when love is in the balance?
