Love in the Balance by Regina Jennings with Kindle Fire Giveaway

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

Molly Lovelace in her father's eyes is an empty headed female that has no interest other than shopping for frivolous things.  When in fact she has a gift for numbers and mathematical figures.  The only reason she prances around like a her daddy's Princess is because that is what people expect of her.  Her father even feels as if she should not have any say as to whom she marries,
mainly because he wants her and her future husband to be an asset to his pocketbook.  But Molly has very strong feelings for Bailey Garner a young man that has been in her life since she was a little girl. Her father sees Bailey as a waste of time because he is basically penniless   

The golden boy Edward Pierrepont enters her life when he visits her home town to experience a cattle drive.  The minute she sets eyes on him she knows this is the man her father would choose as her future husband. How right she was, her father starts making plans for the dandy and it includes his daughter and his pocketbook.  

It all hits the fan when Bailey finds out about Mr. Lovelace's choice of husband for Molly.  How can Bailey dissuade Molly and her father.  If he were financially stable he would be able to marry Molly but just maybe there is another way.

When Molly's father becomes so ill that he is unable to return to work it pushes Molly to make a decision between the dandy or the country boy from her childhood.  The turn of events are mind boggling. 

This story is a stand alone but I did recognize characters from the author's other book "Sixty Acres and a Bride" such as Rosa, Anne Tillerton, Molly and more.  In "Love In The Balance"  she writes a story of intrigue, humor, romance and on the edge of your seat action.  At first I did not like Molly because she tried so hard to be what her parents expected her to be but then when the pressure was on and she had reconciled her differences with God and by accepting his Grace in forgiveness she stood up to what she believed was right and just and she prevailed.  She was committed to help her parents out of financial debt.  God had truly blessed her!

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.
