My Thoughts 
Let Love Find You is the fourth in the Reid Family series and even though I have enjoyed all of Lindsey's books, except lately....I don't know what it is....I feel at times it isn't even her. I have read her previous books plenty of times...but this one just didn't reach out to me really at all. I had a hard time really getting into the book. The story line was great, I really loved the layout of the plot and I liked the characters but it just didn't ring out to me as a fantastic romance as I know Johanna Lindsey can produce. It may just be me since I haven't been reading a lot lately, however even though this book had some admirable qualities it was also lacking something vital: seemed like everything was on the surface, and there wasn't any substance that grabs hold of the readers attention. I am sorry to give it such a low rating....but it just didn't fit into my standards for a good and solid romance....:(

My Grade On This Book 
3 Blossoms

Other Books In The Series 
The Heir
Devil Who Tamed Her
A Rogue Of My Own


  1. i just can't get into this author. but i've only tried to read her books from the past couple of years, so maybe i need to try her early ones?

  2. Oh that's too bad! the storyline did sound interesting but with no depth there is no real connection.

    I hope your next read is loads better.
