Love Finds You in Valentine, Nebraska

Author: Irene Brand
Publisher: Summerside Press
ISBN: 978-1-934770-38-2
Genre: Inspirational/contemporary romance

Kennedy Blaine has just inherited a ranch in Nebraska. Kennedy has lived in California all her life, and her father was quite wealthy, so her plans are to sell this piece of land in Valentine, Nebraska. But she wanted to see her ancestral home before she puts it up on the market. When she arrives she meets the ranch’s manager, Derek Sterling, a man who seems more inclined to run her off the ranch than to welcome her as it’s rightful owner.

Derek quickly warms up to Kennedy, and he and his mother go all out to make her welcome. But Kennedy insists on being independent, and wants to live in her ancestral home, even though its been abandoned for years. But soon, Kennedy discovers that she isn’t exactly welcome in Valentine, Nebraska. Someone obviously wants her to leave town. Is it because of a long standing family feud that her parents’ marriage helped fuel? Or is there a more sinister reason behind the attacks?

I’ve read all the Love Finds You books so far, and really enjoy this new line of inspirational fiction. The stories are, so far, not at all rote. I also enjoy reading about the real towns used as settings in these novels.

In LOVE FINDS YOU IN VALENTINE, NEBRASKA, Kennedy might have been born with the proverbial silver spoon in her mouth, but she’s as realistic as you and me, and didn’t behave like one would expect a rich heiress to act like. Derek had a lot of hurts in his life, but he grew up into a strong and capable man, ideal to manage a ranch. I loved Derek’s mother. She was a real sweetheart, and a true country woman at heart.

Don’t miss LOVE FINDS YOU IN VALENTINE, NEBRASKA, or any of the other books in the Love Finds You series.
They are a true delight to read and are expertly written. 303 pages.
