Book Review and Giveaway Information: Love in the Balance

Love in the Balance

About Love in the Balance

Handsome Cowboy or Debonair Tycoon.
How's a Girl to Choose?

Molly Lovelace dreams of a life without cares in Lockhart, Texas. She also dreams of handsome wrangler Bailey Garner, her ardent but inconsistent beau. The problem is, with Bailey's poor prospects, she just can't fit the two dreams together.

Then mysterious stranger Edward Pierrepont sweeps into town-and her life-and for the first time Molly wonders if she's met the man who can give her everything. But he won't be in Lockhart long and while it certainly seems like he talks about their glorious future together, she can't quite get Bailey out of her mind.

What's a girl to do with all these decisions when love is in the balance?

My thoughts on Love in the Balance

Love in the Balance is the second book in the Ladies of Caldwell County series, and while there is some crossover of characters and storyline with Sixty Acres and a Bride (you can read that review here), you can definitely follow along without having read the first one.  Like so many romance novels, this storyline is based on two things: a couple that doesn't communicate honestly and someone who is struggling between following their heart and doing what society expects of them.  Although those themes were prevalent, I still enjoyed the book and it was different in many other ways.  I enjoyed watching Molly grow from being someone who had a fairly impersonal relationship with God to someone who embraced the example and grace of Christ by the end of the book.  Having said that, the book is not a preachy book, but her relationship with God is a minor, but strong, theme.  

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed Sixty Acres and a Bride, or likes romance or coming-of-age novels.
