Revenge, Ohio is the last place that Sheriff Corbin Hunter wants to be but none other than revenge has brought him back to the town where he fell in love and lost his love. Even seeing Catherine again wonít deter him from finding the gang who killed his father.
Catherine Morgan has an orderly life. She has taken care of her three sisters and managed the family store after her father ran out on them and her mother died. She doesnít regret the choices she made, living the life of a spinster without her own marriage and family. At least thatís what sheís telling herself until her only love rides into town. But Catherine and Corbinís love was in the past. Itís over, been over for years, or has it?
Trouble begins to sprinkle around the area and Corbin is convinced itís the gang heís been tracking. Whether he likes it or not, he has to have Catherineís help since heís sure that the gang leader is one of her sisterís fiancť. He knows that Catherine will do anything to protect her sister, but will Corbinís revenge get in his way of protecting Catherine?
Circumstances change and Catherine is thrown in the middle of them. Despite these changes, Catherineís heart is telling her that she still loves Corbin but can it work? Corbin does finally admit that he has always loved Catherine, and always will, but will his revenge get in the way?
Sometimes God has a way of leading us down a path weíd least expect and He does the same for Catherine and Corbin. But they both have a lot of forgiving to do and a lot of things to put behind them. Will they be able to forgive, trust Godís leadings and look to the future instead of the past?
Love Finds You in Revenge, Ohio is an inspirational story full of mystery and intrigue, love and romance and faith and forgiveness. Thereís a fine mix of everything that makes a good inspirational mystery/romance.
Lisa Harrisí writing kept me turning the pages as fast as I could. She has a way of depicting her characters with real human emotion. Ms Harris tells her story in such a way that makes you feel like you are watching a movie unfold in your mind. I enjoyed my "visit" to Revenge, Ohio and highly recommend the "journey".
