Beyond all Measure

Here it is. Beyond all Measure by Dorothy Love.
—————
Ada Wentworth is broke and desperate, so when a job offer comes along she packs her one bag and heads off to Hickory Ridge to be a lady’s companion. Little did she know that Lillian Willis is a headstrong woman who knows what she wants.
As Wyatt Caldwell, Lillian’s nephew, and Ada fall in love, will Ada drop everything, including her growing business, to move to Texas to be a rancher’s wife?

Ms. Love has a knack for description, a gift not all authors possess, and it truly paints a fantastic picture in my head.
I love the fellow ladies of Hickory Ridge and Sophie. All except Bea draw you in and make you love them. They tease and laugh and of course gossip. They’re definitely inviting and you wish that they were in the story more, and real.
The romance kicks in at a great pace, it doesn’t take forever but not too quickly. Of course everyone else realizes their love before they do. 🙂
The story had some pleasant, and not so pleasant, surprises and twists. Particularly with “The Klan” and you find out who really is Ada’s friend and who isn’t.
Lillian is a major part of the faith aspect of this story. Both Ada and Wyatt don’t really have a relationship with God and Lillian makes Ada read her the Bible before she goes to bed.
This book is pretty good but for some reason, I couldn’t really get into it, that’s why it took me so long to post this review. I don’t even know why I can’t get into it. There isn’t really one thing that’s wrong with it.
Overall, I think this book is perfect for people who love historical romances and for people just starting out reading romance because it is very innocent in the romance. For some reason it didn’t draw me in like some books and I was slightly disappointed. I give it three out of five.
