What I’m Reading: Poetry, Texas

Love Finds You in Poetry, Texas, by Janice Hanna is a delightful read with great word play and ties to the town’s name: Poetry. The stores are named Bonnets and Sonnets, Poetic Notions and such. The main character uses poetry to woo women to come to Texas as potential brides for the town’s many bachelors. In the process, she learns of her own feelings for the town barber.

This story flowed nicely, but it had so many characters, I honestly got a bit lost at times. There were some characters that were truly unforgettable and it all came together nicely in the end. I would have liked to see a little more conflict, but Hanna did a nice job of incorporating subtle conflict – no gunslingers here, just quiet tension and enough anticipation to keep the pages turning!

With solid writing and beautiful locations, this is everything you expect from a “Love Finds You” book.
