I got the book from the library.

Devin Baldwin is a popular horse breeder who is also being referred to as “cupid” for his matchmaking abilities. He pairs the young ladies with eligible men based on animal magnetism and what they have in common. He speaks his mind and will dish out unsolicited advice to better one’s chance of getting a mate.

Lady Amanda Locke is on her third season among the ton and still cannot seem to find a husband.  Her family has gotten desperate and hires “Cupid,” whom Amanda finds infuriating, to give Amanda riding lessons so she can win an earl who talks about nothing but horses.

My Thoughts:
I love Johanna Lindsey’s books so when I heard she had a new book coming out I had to get on the waiting list for it at my neighborhood library, and it was well worth the wait.  I just loved this book!  It is well written and the characters are very descriptive. It’s an easy read and the story line just pulls you right in.  It’s one of those books the reader just can’t put down and is kept up until the wee hours of the morning reading. 

I loved how the book introduces the novelty of finding common interests in a future mate to the heroine, Amanda.  I found it funny that her father and aunt don’t think it is necessary to have some sort of common ground with one’s significant other. Common interests with one’s mate is something readers already know about and know that is why it’s not easy to find a mate as it used to be back in the days of the Regency.  The reader will want to climb into the book and tell the father and aunt that it is true.

I also love that there is a bit of mystery entwined with the story.  Who is Devin’s biological father? Who is trying to kill Devin and why? These questions are not answered until the last chapter and the reader is kept in suspense the whole time, but the suspense is not painful as there is some humor thrown in occasionally.

For these reason I gave Let Love Find You by Johanna Lindsey five stars and a grade of an A.   If you enjoy Johanna Lindsey’s books as much as I do, you must read this one.  If you have never read a book by Johanna Lindsey’s books but enjoy romance novels, I recommend reading Let Love Find You and then read her Mallory Family series. You’ll love it.
