PERIODICAL REVIEWS

  • Romantic Times, January 2010 issue, 4 stars (out of 4 1/2) review by Patsy Glans:

“This wonderful new novel in the Love Finds You series is a treat!  There are funny moments, moments which will tug at your heartstrings and a lot of time spent in the wonderful world of food – and, oh, the chocolate! ” 

***

“It had sooo much going for it – snappy dialogue, terrific characters, a ton of laugh out loud moments… One of the things that worked best for me is the heroine. I love zany heroines. Characters like the ones you find in an SEP novel or Kristin Higgin’s book. Women who are perfectly competent but always seem just a step away from landing themselves into a truly comical, disastrous situation. Sadie Spencer is just such a heroine and I adored her…

It’s rare that I like a beta hero but Jasper was so well drawn I couldn’t help but fall for him. He just seemed so real, though granted on the wow! side of real. 😉 He was the kind of man we all want to take home to meet the parents…

If you are in the mood for something fun and enjoy Inspirationals, don’t hesitate to pick this one up.”

READER REVIEWS

“As a rule, I’m not a fan of inspirational fiction nor typical romantic comedy, but Love Finds You in Hershey, Pennsylvania expertly transcends the stereotypes of both genres. It is engaging from start to finish, the characters are just like people I’ve known in my life, and the situations that Sadie encounters are fully believable and often hilarious. Even the two or three scenes that serve simply to further the plot do not seem forced or the least bit preposterous. And this is one of the only books I’ve read from these genres that can make that claim. I never wanted to put the book down, yet I never wanted the story to end. When I did complete the book, I immediately wanted to read more about many of the characters. For me, that’s the highest compliment for a novel and a writer.” (Jules at phrenetical :: a state of mind)
