An adventurous novel of faith, hope, and love in the Wild West.
About This Series: Straight from the heart of the Old West, the Colorado Runaway series is full of adventure, humor, and romance by award-winning novelist Janelle Mowery.
My thoughts: WHEN LOVE GETS IN THE WAY has some really cute moments. Grace is feisty, willing to get her way by hiding in the back of a wagon piled full of lumber. Unfortunately she was discovered too soon. A shooting match by a mysterious horseback rider and plenty of other disasters follow in Grace's wake, making this unpredictable.A western with a runaway bride, bucking at expectations. The story is slow, the characters lack depth and seem to rely on the mishaps to keep the story flowing. 3 stars.
