Book Review: Love in the Balance by Regina Jennings

About the Book: Handsome Cowboy or Debonair Tycoon.
How's a Girl to Choose?
Molly Lovelace dreams of a life without cares in Lockhart, Texas. She also dreams of handsome wrangler Bailey Garner, her ardent but inconsistent beau. The problem is, with Bailey's poor prospects, she just can't fit the two dreams together.
Then mysterious stranger Edward Pierrepont sweeps into town-and her life-and for the first time Molly wonders if she's met the man who can give her everything. But he won't be in Lockhart long and while it certainly seems like he talks about their glorious future together, she can't quite get Bailey out of her mind.
What's a girl to do with all these decisions when love is in the balance? 

My Thoughts:  I have to admit that it took me awhile to get into this book, probably because I didn't care for either of the two main characters at the beginning.  But, that was also the point of the book!  The changes that both Bailey and Molly go through when they finally surrender to God show what a difference His grace and Lordship can make in a person's life.

One thing I really liked about this book is that the consequences for their choices were realistic.  They weren't rescued from making a bad choice just in the nick of time.  They mistakenly relied on their own human ability, chose wrong, and suffered the consequences.  And yet, God also redeemed them.  And that is so true to life for you and I.  We can choose to go our own way, and we can make a royal mess of our lives.  And though God won't necessarily rescue us from those bad choices, He will redeem them and bless us in spite of them, when we turn to Him.
