When Love Comes My Way


When Love Comes My Way
by Lori Copeland

"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?"

Two reasons why I was excited about reading this historical romance: First, Lori Copeland. She writes GOOD books. Second, this story is set in MICHIGAN. LOVE. It's rare to run across a book written about my home state. Okay, besides all that, this was an excellent book! I loved the "revenge" aspect of the book...which always ends up blowing up in the the faces of those who had the "genius" idea in the first place. And I loved that Tess had a chance to rediscover herself; to explore her history first hand and to change who she was. And, of course, the romance is always an important part of my favorite genre :) You won't be disappointed by this novel! 

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review!

What an awesome sounding book! I also love that time period and it's even cooler that it takes place in Michigan! I'll have to look into reading this one! :-)
