Regina Jennings proved that she was a talented author with her first novel, Sixty Acres and a Bride. But could she do it again? Yes! Her latest novel, Love in the Balance, invites readers back to Texas to meet Molly Lovelace, a somewhat spoiled and naive daughter of the wealthy mill owner. Mr. Lovelace is a man who knows what he wants and knows what is best for his family. And you can be certain that Bailey Garner is NOT the right match for his daughter. Why, he’s not going to amount to anything in life. His Molly deserves only the best. And the “best” means a man with money.
I’ll admit, I didn’t like Molly for quite a while in the novel. To me, she seemed selfish and spoiled and completely oblivious to her affect on Bailey. It took me a while to like her, so if you’re struggling with this same problem, stick with it! Bailey seemed genuine and real, deserving of a woman who wasn’t as flighty or self-centered as Molly. But alas, Molly came around eventually.
Author Regina Jennings has a talent for writing real characters in real situations with her own flair. I highly recommend Love in the Balance and any others written by Regina Jennings.
I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
