Love's Aim by Lisa Crane Release day!!!


Introducing Love's Aim by Lisa Crane
When Josie Santiago learns she was adopted she sets off on a search for the older sister she never knew existed. Longing for a family, she follows her sister's trail to the small north Texas town of Cupid's Hollow. A case of mistaken identity leads to Josie being thrown in a jail cell, and everyone in town seems to hate her. 

Learning the truth about her sister--that she's a con artist, a thief, and a liar, among other things--breaks Josie's heart. Determined to make amends for her sibling's crimes, she takes a job at the local diner, where she soon wins the affections of nearly everyone in town. Too bad the affections she wants belong to the untrusting, but oh, so handsome Chief of Police, Finn Maguire. 

Finn doesn't trust his heart where Josie Santiago is concerned. After all, she looks just like her sister ... the sister who fooled him into almost proposing marriage before she left town with a stolen car and a load of stolen money. To top it off, he learned Lauren had been cheating on him with several men in town. What an idiot he'd been! 

And now, here came her look-alike sister, too good to be true. Or is she? Just about the time he realizes the truth about Josie Santiago, she vanishes. Where can she be, and will Finn find her before it's too late? 

A story of love and forgiveness, Love's Aim is a sweet Christian romance that will leave you sighing for more. And don't skip Finn's playlist at the end of the book; you just might find a new favorite song.


My Review: Even with a plot that is a bit far fetched, I hope, I was thoroughly engrossed in this story. I want to wrap Josie up in a big hug and protect her from all the evil people in town. I felt rage towards the behavior of some of the townspeople and love for others like Sam and Sophia. I want to both smack and hug Finn for his hot/cold emotions. Any book that can cause such passion is a must read in my book.

The pace of the book is perfect never having a dull spot. The characters are well developed. This is a nice clean Christian book that anyone would enjoy reading.

Lisa Crane never fails to amaze me at the creative ability she has to bring people to life making you beg for more. I WANT Sam's story. I WANT officer Garvey's story. I would love to find out this town becomes a series.
