Title: LOVE FINDS YOU IN ROMEO, COLORADO
Author: Gwen Ford Faulkenbury
Publisher: Summerside Press
Genre: Inspirational/contemporary romance
Claire Caspian is back in Romeo, Colorado, but this time she has her five-year-old son, Graeme with her. Her husband has passed on, and when Claire is offered a job as English professor at the college, she is quick to move back to the desert town of Romeo, even if she has to live with her grandmother. When Graeme has a severe asthma attack at school, Claire is shocked as she was certain that allergens would be fewer in the desert.
The doctor, Stephen Reyes, is compassionate, but he fears that Graeme’s asthma is getting worse as Graeme gets older, something not uncommon. So he sends Graeme to a specialist. Still, Stephen can’t help but think about the beautiful green-eyed Claire, and he begins to look for her at local sporting events.
When Stephen shares his interest in Claire with his male nurse, the nurse is quick to inform Stephen that Claire is married. But Stephen wonders where her husband is. And he still can’t seem to keep his distance. How will this misunderstanding get cleared up? And is Claire even open for a new love?
LOVE FINDS YOU IN ROMEO, COLORADO is another wonderful romance published by Summerside Press. So far, I’ve enjoyed all the books in this new line that I’ve read and I hope that it will be around for along time to come. Romeo, Colorado is a real town set in the desert areas of Colorado, though this book, unlike some others in this collection, does not give any further information about the town.
I enjoyed getting to know both Claire, and Stephen, though both, being professionals did take a bit of time for me to warm up to. The author was very good at weaving descriptive terms about the setting through the book, so I could almost see the town and surrounding areas. I especially enjoyed one of the secondary characters, Maria, as she was very well-developed and bubbled with life. I’d like to see more about this character.
Don’t miss any of the Love Finds You In series, and especially not LOVE FINDS YOU IN ROMEO, COLORADO. It is a nice visit to a different area, and a great summer time read. $12.99. 318 pages.
