Love in the Balance by Regina Jennings ~ Review and Litfuse Tour

Love in the BalanceLucie's Review: A rollercoaster of a story.

Goodness this book was quite a tale, and it was interesting to see where it would go because I never could quite guess. When I first picked this book up I thought that it would be a comedy of sorts, but as it progressed Molly's life because more bleak as she struggled to find her way, despite the pressures from her parents and her love, Bailey, and it all just get's even more confusing when a new seemingly dashing rich fellow sweeps into town, tangling the webs even further.

This was a hard read, mostly because I strongly disliked the characters of Molly's parents, because they were so superficial and cared more about appearances and self-importance than about their own daughter and what they push her into. There were times when I didn't like Molly or Bailey either.

In my opinion this book shows the value of not judging people, because you probably don't know the whole story.

Overall, I had a hard time liking this book, but maybe that was because the characters were realistic, and true-to-life. Yeah, we all want the hero to stand up and defend his lady's honor, but sometimes fear the fear of being judged keeps him quiet. There were times when I just didn't want to keep reading because of how bad things had gotten, but at the same I did want to see how they'd get out of the situation they were in. So in conclusion, this book was a roller coaster of emotions, fraught trouble and turmoil, about redemption, but not in dramatic typical novel fashion, but in a more slow realistic process.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

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?
