Genre: Historical romance

From bestselling author Lori Copeland, When Love Comes My Way is a love story about redemption, forgiveness, and renewed spiritual awakenings set against the backdrop of scenic Upper Peninsula, Michigan, in the days when pine was king.

Michigan, 1873--As Tess Wakefield wakes from a frightening wagon accident, she discovers she has lost her memories. In her recovery, she loses her heart as well to handsome lumberjack Jake Lannigan. It's not a two-way street, though. Jake thinks he knows exactly who she is--the spoiled Wakefield Timber heir--but he believes the accident provides the means to show her that she has a responsibility to replant the trees and not to merely invest her inheritance opening another of her silly millinery shops.

Then he slowly he begins to fall in love with her. Jake wants to tell Tess the truth, but before he can her true identity is uncovered, and then both of them find the emotional stakes too high. Will God intervene and show this headstrong couple that only He in His wisdom could have paired them together?

WHEN LOVE COMES MY WAY is a lumber camp story, set in Michigan, but it is totally different than the others. Tess Wakefield is a strong-willed individual, whether she is an unsuspecting teacher or an heiress and the camp is set on its ears.

I loved this story all the way through to the end and then the ending ruined it for me. I won’t go into the details how or why, but I closed the book disappointed. It took the book from a 5 star book to a 4 star book, so it is still a positive review.

I enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book – If you like historical romances set in the timber lands of Michigan, starring big brawny heroes, you should pick up WHEN LOVE COMES MY WAY.

Available in ebook, hardcover, and paperback. 304 pages.
