The only thing worse than being a spinster is being a twice-jilted spinster. (from the back cover)
Catherine Morgan is twenty-five, and sole caregiver of her three younger sisters, since her father abandoned them and their mother died. She’s a successful business woman, and she has no time for frivolous activities, such as looking for a husband. Especially since she’s already been jilted, twice.
But while visiting her recently married younger sister, Emily, on her ostrich farm, an ostrich attack by an enraged ostrich leaves a farmhand wounded, and the new sheriff, Corbin Hunter, riding to the rescue. Corbin was the first man to jilt Catherine, and she is horrified that the returned to Revenge to find her still waiting.
Corbin is not remotely interested in renewing his dead relationship with Catherine, but something about being in the small town together seemed to make him unable to get away from her. Especially since she owned the only telephone service in town, and there was a mystery to solve…
LOVE FINDS YOU IN REVENGE, OHIO, is the newest book in the Love Finds You series. I enjoy reading the stories set in different towns across the country, and especially the bits about each town that is included in the book, as well as photos of the town or what remains of the town. It was nice getting to know Catherine and Corbin and all the secondary characters as they moved and breathed around a town that no longer exists.
LOVE FINDS YOU IN REVENGE, OHIO, is a well-told story that held my interest from beginning to end. The setting is well described, the historical aspects seem accurate, and the characters are well-developed. Don’t miss LOVE FINDS YOU IN REVENGE, OHIO.
