Love Finds You in Poetry, Texas

Author: Janice Hanna
Publisher: Summerside Press
June 2009
ISBN: 978-1-935416-16-6
Genre: Inspirational/historical romance

Belinda Bauer has decided that her calling in life is to be a marriage broker. Mail order brides are still popular, and she’s determined to match up the over-abundance of unmarried men in her town with their one and only. However, her matchmaking attempts prior to this have left her the laughing stock of the town. How can she convince the men to purchase her services?

Her first attempt, Georg Kaufman, meets with refusal. Georg is happy single, but Belinda attempts to match him up anyway. And Georg is completely infatuated with the beautiful bride that comes to marry him. There is only one problem…the bride falls in love with Belinda’s brother and marries him instead!

Still, the men of the town suddenly want beautiful brides too. And while Georg isn’t convinced that Belinda’s methods are right, he agrees to let her try again. What will it take for the two of them to realize that God’s plans are best?

I have read almost all of the Love Finds You books so far, and I haven’t been disappointed by any of them yet. LOVE FINDS YOU IN POETRY, TEXAS is another winner. A story set in the historical town of Poetry which is now not much more than a curve in the road.

Belinda is a rather outspoken, energetic heroine that I think most men would have trouble keeping up with. She seemed rather outspoken at times. Georg is a totally sweet hero, kind and caring. Belinda and Georg have grown up together and consider each other more like members of the same extended family.

LOVE FINDS YOU IN POETRY, TEXAS is a really cute, funny story about matchmaking. I totally loved this book and can’t wait to read more books by Janice Hanna in the Love Finds You series. $12.99. 310 pages.
