After reading this book, I have a new favorite author. I will buy anything Gwen Ford Faulkenberry writes. Her voice is authentic and her perspective fresh. She seems to have the perfect balance of faith and intellectual prowess, not sacrificing one for the other. Love Finds You in Romeo, Colorado, is definitely not a typical romance novel, Christian or otherwise. I found it to be a beautiful work of art.
In the Christian market, it is hard to find a romance novel with real- life characters. I am amazed by this author's character development. She takes you deep into the hearts and minds of her characters while weaving a story that is impossible to predict. The spiritual lessons are subtle and wise. There are places where the prose just sings off the page. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves great literature-- and seeks after grace and truth.

I really liked this book. The author did a great job of showing how hard it was for Claire to trust in God and learn to love again. She was so fearful of losing people she cared about, because of past experiences, that she had trouble with letting her heart open to another. A couple of things bothered me, but they weren't a very big deal. First, Claire really jumps to conclusions without getting all of the facts. This is definitely a big flaw in her character. She makes judgments and is stubborn about things. I wasn't fond of the very ending of the book. I know it is meant to be a cute twist, but it just left me hanging a bit. But I loved the rest of the book and thought that the main characters were very interesting to read about.

I think she spent one day in the San Luis valley before writing this. All her geography is off, and so are her descriptions of communities are laughable. For instance, it takes two hours to drive from La Jara to Salida. Not a place you would drive to for a quick dinner.

The story was interesting but the inner workings of the characters and the emotional play between characters fell very flat. "Flat affect" comes to mind in describing it. It seemed to improve about halfway through, but then it lost momentum and fell flat again at the end. Not a book I would care to read again. :-(

Finally, a surprising, new and fresh approach. I found this book highly entertaining and engaging to read. I love the little morsels this gifted author carefully intertwined along the way to provide delightful unpredictability that kept me highly engaged. This author's refreshing writing style is entertaining and credibile. The book has integrity and authenticity and to my delight there is an intellectual level maintained throughout the story. I will definetely be following Gwen Ford Faulkenberry. I bought two of these books for gifts and am going to purchase her newest release as well. Really hope to see more and more from this author!
