Review: Love Finds You in Humble, Texas by Anita Higman

Summerside Press has launched a line of romance novels that focus on sweet Christian romances in various places throughout the United States. Each town is a real place with a quirky name. I think their covers are absolutely gorgeous...don't you?

I love to read a sweet romance from time to time, and I'm thrilled to know I have a new option in the Love Finds You...series.

Love Finds You in Humble, Texas by Anita Higman is the story of two sisters who have the misfortune of falling in love with the same man. Thankfully, this wasn't the kind of story where the sisters were going to do battle throughout the book, but rather they loved each other a lot. At first, I thought I was going to despise Lane who seemed oblivious to Trudie's strong feelings for Mason. What really irritated me was that Lane set Trudie up with Mason to begin with! However, once she saw how wonderful and charming he was with her sister, she started to regret her decision. I won't say anymore than that, but I did end up quite liking Lane by the end. This is an enjoyable read, with light humor and also a sweet message of healing and hope.

If you're looking for a nice romance with elements of faith set in a nice small town with character, than I think you will enjoy this one!

Rating: 3.75/5

I'll have to tell my stepmother about these.

A bit random, but I thought I'd share - we actually live not far from Humble, Texas, and as Oregon transplants, we think it's hilarious that the town is actually pronounced "umble," no "h" sound. Like a fancy Frenchman is saying it. :)

Yes, it's pronounced "umble" with no "h". I live near Humble (which is a Houston suburb), too. If they wanted quirky town names they should have gone just a few miles north of Humble, to Cut 'N Shoot, Texas.

Lenore--I take is she likes Christian romance? ;)

Stacy--they do make a slight reference to that in the book!

Euphrony...I suspect they thought Humble was a better name for a romantic setting!!

Honestly, how do you get more romantic than wrangling cattle?

I just finished this book and loved it! I had just sat down to write my own review.

BTW, I live in Cut 'N Shoot! LOL Love it here and visit Humble often. I also grew up spending lots of time at Mercer Arboretum which is mentioned. I got all excited when she asked for influencers since I know the area so well.

Great review and I loved Lane as well...eventually. ;-)
