Book Review- Love in the Balance

Love in the Balance is a tale of tough decisions. Molly has dreamed of a life where’d she have everything, and marry handsome Bailey as well. The problem is she can only have one or the other. Much to her parent’s delight, stranger Edward sweeps into town and Molly off her feet. Edward may just be the answer to her needs, but what about Bailey?

I’ll have to admit I had my judgments about this book. I was already predicting the end without even having read it. Regina sure did surprise me! She crafted a story plot like none other I’ve ever read. When presented with the option of rich guy or poor guy each author chooses the poor guy, but with the right amount of twists she kept you in the dark well into the book. The author also included a strong voice in Christian fiction. The author did not sugar coat anything and it was beautiful to see the many spiritual struggles the characters faced and how the Lord worked everything out for their good in the end. 

One setback for me was that I never really bonded with Molly. Her many heartbreaking situations should have crushed me, but I wasn’t that moved. It was as if I did not know her well enough to sympathize much with her. I was more concerned what would become of the hero in this book, Bailey then the main character. Bailey was definitely a lovable character. He was portrayed as a young man that wants to do what is right but faces many temptations. I admired his deep relationship with the Lord. It was of great benefit to see a young man so devoted to his God. 

Having read both of the author’s books, I enjoyed my return visit to Lockhart, Texas and cannot wait to see what’s next. I would give Love in the Balance a 4 out of 5.

I received this book for free, from Litfuse Publicity, in exchange for this independent and unbiased review.
