Inspirational/contemporary romance

Sunny Westcott was raised by her grandmother after her parents’ untimely deaths. And after her grandmother dies, Sunny finds herself unemployed and trying to clean out her grandmother’s house. A friend helps her find a temporary job as a model, and Sunny is invited to go to Pendleton for a photo shot. Before she goes though, she discovers an old box in her grandmother’s house that seems to imply that Sunny’s great-grandfather was a famous rodeo king, but she has no proof.

While in Pendleton, Sunny goes out to the reservation to try to find relatives. Her host sets her up with her son-in-law, Cody, who lives on the reservation, and he is able to help her find some relatives on her great-grandmother’s side of the family. But regarding her great-grandfather’s fathering her, everyone seemed to have their own opinion ranging from her great-grandmother was crazy to yes, you are definitely his great-grandchild.

Will Sunny be able to find the truth in the two weeks she’s in town? And if she does, will she like what she finds?

LOVE FINDS YOU IN PENDLETON, OREGON is a recent release by prolific author, Melody Carlson. This book isn’t as great as other books by Ms. Carlson that I’ve read, and the romance almost seems to be tossed in there last minute, as in, oh, this is supposed to be a romance…

LOVE FINDS YOU IN PENDLETON, OREGON is a disappointment as far as being a Love Finds You book is concerned, it is more a story about a woman trying to find her roots. But it still was a good read, and it held my interest. If you like books in the Love Finds You series, or are a fan of Ms. Carlson’s books, then you might want to consider LOVE FINDS YOU IN PENDLETON, OREGON. However, if you want a great contemporary romance, you might want to look further. $12.99. 316 pages.
