    This is an amazing book! I would love to see it made into a movie. The whole time I was reading this book, I was laughing. The characters in this book are so funny! I loved them all. The way Janice paired them all off was genius. She really showed how God’s plan isn’t always our own, and when that happens we need to be joyful and realize that God has something better for us than we had for ourselves.

Love Finds You in Poetry, Texas is an excellent book that I think anyone will enjoy.

    I felt that this book had a bit of a slow start but picked up after the first few chapters when all of the brides began arriving. A nice twist on the typical mail-order bride story, and a lot of colourful characters filled the little town of Poetry!

While I did thoroughly enjoy reading this book, it didn't really have that spark that made it stand out from other historical romances. It had some quirky characters and Belinda's job as a marriage broker wasn't one that I'd read about before, but all in all, Belinda and Georg's relationship was pretty standard for a romance novel. Perhaps not the most original historical romance I've read this year but definitely one of the more enjoyable. If you're looking for a novel that you can rely upon to provide you with all the elements of a good romance and a couple of quirks, then definitely check out this book. I'll definitely be looking out for more books from this line. 7/10

    Great story. Love how they have a running them with Poetry terms and poems throughout the story. Great story of a match maker who tries to find a perfect match for the men in her town. Even if she thinks her perfect match should be matched with someone else in the beginning. In the end she learns that no matter what, she can't be God, she can only allow opportunities to happen and allow God to take control

    SUMMARY: Belinda Bauer in her ivory tower…. In the German community of Poetry, Texas, Belinda spies an opportunity.

For some reason, she just can’t seem to find Georg’s "perfect match," though it’s not for lack of trying. Is there a poetic ending in store for Georg— and for Belinda herself? REVIEW: This LFY book is full of laughter as the heroine, Belinda Bauer, sets up her matchmaking service for the overwhelmingly male, small Texas town of Poetry. She combs the newspapers from all over the US and begins bringing in specific women for gentlemen who have decided to prevail upon her services. But Belinda's matchmaking skills lead to many "mis-matched" couples who find their true love to be someone else in town. Belinda, along with many others in the town, find that life is so much better when they follow God's lead rather than man's and that God's timing is always perfect. FAVORITE QUOTES: "Don't ever let me hear you say that again!! You are the prettiest girl I know, and your heart is prettier still. If you don't believe that, just ask the Lord. He will convince you that you are created in His image. He doesn't make anything less than perfect." "If she'd learned anything at all over the past few months, it was this: walk at least one pace behind the Almighty, never in front." ",,our lives are the greatest stories we will ever write. And if we write them well, others will read those stories and learn from the things we've done. How we've lived. How we've treated others. It's all in there."

    This was my second book in a row by Janice Hanna (aka. Janice A. Thompson), and I really enjoyed it as well. I love the different spin she put on Mail-Order Brides...it was witty, charming, and romantic, all at the same time!! Mail-Order Bride stories are a favorite of mine, so when I saw this book was going to be released, I knew I had to have it. I'm so glad I got the chance to read it, and now share my review with you.

Mail-Order Bride stories are a favorite of mine, so when I saw this book was going to be released, I knew I had to have it. I'm so glad I got the chance to read it, and now share my review with you. It's 1904 in Poetry, Texas, where Belinda Bauer lives with her family and works in her Aunt Hilde's store, Poetic Notions. (Let me say here that I love how some of the stores/businesses are quaintly named with references to poetry!) Greta is Belinda's cousin, as well as her best friend. She is a little skeptical when she first hears Belinda's idea to become a Marriage Broker. Greta and Belinda have been friends with Georg Kaufman since grade school, and Belinda feels led to use Georg as her first customer...without his knowledge! Belinda searches newspapers from places as far away as Boston, Philadelphia, and New York to find the "perfect" wife for the men of Poetry. She believes that her heavenly Father will help her as she searches, but she also claims that finding a perfect match "comes down to science". When the brides start arriving, not every couple works out as Belinda had planned. This leads to some hilarious, as well as heart-breaking, situations! A few of the couples end up in love "at first sight", for which Belinda is very thankful. ************** A couple of the store/business names that I mentioned above are: Rhyme and Reason, Limerick's Livery, Sonnets and Bonnets, just to name a few. Don't they pique your interest? Are you intrigued? I hope so! Be sure to pick up your own copy of Love Finds You in Poetry Texas to find out what happens to all of the brides that show up in Poetry, as well as the men they were chosen for. You will not be disappointed! :)

    This was a sweet and cute story, but I felt that I had to grind my way through it a bit. I loved how the heroine was clueless about her chosen matchmaking profession and how everything wound up righted in the end by the grace of God himself. It was a book worth reading for me, but not worth owning.

    What a great novel!!! Definitely was a page turner, and it kept you on your toes the whole time. The romance that blossomed and the mysteries that came were what kept me entranced to keep reading and not put it down. The ending was spectacular!!!

    Just an adorable story. match.com circa 1904. And I always enjoy novels set in Texas, even in towns that barely exist anymore, and I appreciate authors who are unashamedly Christian and can weave that into their stories.

    This story was sickly sweet; hero clueless and non-heroic, everybody with a very surface spirituality that came across as totally unreal, no chemistry between any of the couples. I gave it two stars instead of one because I did read it all the way through, so something must have kept my interest.

    This is a delightful well written story. Belinda is a wonderful character whose heart is in the right place but she has a tendency to run ahead of God. George, Belinda's friend for many years, is a very moral and upright young man. Matching making is the theme of the story and my oh my how well Ms. Thompson handles this theme. Highly recommend this lovely story.

As my first experience with a Love Finds You novel I was entirely pleased and look forward to reading more of them in the future. The love between the main characters was palpable and described very well in a realistic manner of friendship and assumptions. I love the writing of Janice Hanna aka Janice Thompson, and cannot wait for more both historical and contemporary.

    There's a whole series of these "Love finds you in"... featuring cities with odd names. I thought it sounded like a cute idea, so I picked up a couple to try. This... wanted to be cute. It really did. And if it weren't a completely HORRIBLE main character, it would've been. The premise was that the town had no girls to be wives to the men who worked the railroad line and at the nearby camp. So our heroine decides she's going to send for brides for the men in her community. There's a whole series of these "Love finds you in"... featuring cities with odd names.

Oh, the match-ups are fun to read, but the main girl is just not getting the clue phone about things, and meanwhile is falling in love with the guy across the street... Who she orders a bride for, and when the girl arrives and is beautiful/sweet, she starts to systematically try to destroy the girl's happiness. Also in the name of Gawd. R'something. She was a total brat. It really took away from the story. So while there were cute bits, it was overshadowed by this behemoth of a busybody. No mi gusta.

    3.25 stars! This was such a cute book!! A woman named Belinda lives in a highly male populated town and decides to play match-maker by picking out mail-order brides from the newspaper. She especially wants to help her best friend Georg, the barber. Will her matches be successful? Or will her heart end up bruised in the process! This had some humorist parts and a lot of God-inspiring situations. Learn to depend on God's timing, is what I learned from the plot. I loved it!

    I had somewhat of a difficult time ...relating or bonding with Belinda. And Georg seemed to be swayed by a pretty face more than his heart. It was a sweet book, but there were so many different brides and grooms that I could not keep them straight. They just became names to me. All in all, it was a good book. I think part of my problem was that I was expecting romance with a story; instead I got a story with a little romance.

    Great way to start my reading for 2014. A fun and entertaining tale of a matchmaker in the early 1900s who missed as often as she hit, fetching mail order brides for prospective grooms in town. Even though you could see where the plot was going from the start, there was enough going on for it to be a captivating, easy and quick read.
