Series: The Ballantyne Legacy - Book One
Revell / 2012
About the book:
Love's Reckoning is the second book I've read by Laura Frantz and I absolutely loved it! From the beginning on I was enthralled with the story and how things would turn out - I could hardly put it down once I was a couple chapters in (although I had to in order to get some sleep). I finished it in about two days (and this is a large book - over 400 pages!) so that says something as to how good it was.
Love's Reckoning was very gripping emotionally - there were times I was so upset and wanted to scream (I may have actually) and other times I wanted to cry. I didn't know how the book would end and, at one point, wanted to skip ahead to the end to find out, but didn't because I knew it would wreck the story. I don't think there was ever a dull moment to this novel. The only complaint I have is that the ending seemed a tad bit rushed (in my opinion), but it was still great and is now one of my favorite books.
The characters were fantastic and I loved all the little secrets that were throughout the book (that added a little mystery to the story) - some were really shocking!
I'm so glad that this is part of a series because I am very much looking forward to finding out what continues to happen in these characters' lives.
Overall, I loved Love's Reckoning and recommend it if you enjoy historical romances, but expect to be taken on a wild ride that'll keep you turning pages late into the night (at least it did with me).
