Review:

Lisa Harris combines love, suspense, mystery, and faith to create a captivating story called Love Finds You in Revenge, Ohio. Twenty-five and unmarried, Catherine Morgan must live with her choice to sacrifice previous hopes of marriage. After her father left and mother passed away, Catherine took it upon herself to run the family general store and care for her four younger sisters; as head of the family, she will continue to do anything to protect her loved ones. With the arrival of the new sheriff comes news of danger and a stirring of buried emotions.

Corbin Hunter never wanted to return to his hometown and the painful memories he left behind, but his desire for revenge is stronger. He returns only to capture the man who murdered his father; his past feelings for Catherine Morgan have nothing to do with his temporary homecoming. Avoiding the Morgan family becomes difficult when he discovers Catherine’s sister is engaged to the man he is trying to catch. Will Corbin’s bitterness and drive for revenge sever all chance of reconciliation with Catherine, leaving them with painful memories instead?

Psalm 103:2-5 says, “Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.” Harris wisely prefaces the story with this passage. These verses describe what the characters must remember throughout the course of trying events --when life seems at an all-time low, God is always there to save and restore.

Lisa Harris does an excellent job creating a tale in which readers quickly become engrossed. The characters are easy to relate to and have believable traits and feelings. Not only is the story entertaining, but it contains several lessons related to forgiveness and faith. This story will make you want to keep reading more of Harris’ work. All ages of women will enjoy the enthralling tale and lessons of Love Finds You in Revenge, Ohio. – Elizabeth Ford, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
