One True Love by Lori Copeland – Review

Copper is overjoyed that her friends Willow and Audrey found love and fulfillment after the war. The only remaining spinster, Copper vows to pour herself into her new teaching job. But tragedy strikes during her very first week. The schoolhouse catches fire and Copper suffers a serious injury while ushering her students to safety. Suddenly she’s on a wagon train bound for Colorado to see the only doctor who can help her walk again.
Ever since the wagon train pulled into town, Copper butted heads with wagon master Josh Redlin—and now she must depend on him for her very life. But as Copper is forced to count on others for life’s basic needs, she starts to surrender…and let her guard down around the one man whom she’s despised for so long. Could it be that the very person that drives her crazy is the one she truly needs?

Readers of Lori Wick, Beverly Lewis, and Tracey Bateman will be enchanted by One True Love—indeed, anyone who loves beautifully written, inspirational Christian romance will be thrilled to accompany one of its most accomplished authors to the American West for an eventful and unforgettable adventure of the heart and spirit.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The entire Belles of Timber Creek series was fun to read. Following along the journey of three quirky, but lovable, opinionated and adventurous friends. This book is the final book coming after Twice Loved and then Three Times Blessed and it was a great way to fully get to know Copper. From the first chapter of the first book I knew that Copper was my favorite and was eager to hear her story. Now that I have, I’m glad to have read this series as it was a great time in a triple romance.
This book has so much more than the rest of the series in a way of Biblical lessons for me. Learning to let go and let God as well as true forgiveness of one’s self are true hard lessons. In this story they are shared in a very vivid light. I highly recommend the entire series as well as other series and books from author Lori Copeland.

    The series of the books started out OK. The first book in this series had a story line that kept a person reading,

    Then in book two the lazy writing comes to the fore about 1/4 way through.
    Now this, book three, that sloppy writing is full blown.

    More tragedies, silly stupid tragedies. And then so much is missing or not remembered by the author. And full blown lies by the hero make it a sad old book to be read.

    Hero says, “I will write you and send it when I get to a place to send. Each week, I will write.”

    For the first three weeks she gets letters then months go by and no word.

    Well come to find out he is in Dallas, not Colorado Springs or even dead, as was hinted.

    He never wrote her from Dallas or Colorado Springs like he promised, but then got angry at her for not waiting for him to come back to a town she believes he has no ties to.

    Of course he tells her best friends not to tell her he was the one that bought the house they are all living in. Secrets kept from the heroine why? A test for someone he claims to love?

    He won’t tell her about the reason he has to go to another woman in Dallas, but then gets angry at her for being upset and assuming the Dallas chick is he wife.

    Sloppy writing for Ms. Copeland, I do not understand why, perhaps she started this series and then got behind and could not meet the deadline. Then you add to that, the meds she was to take, she decides not to take some, then they blame her when it is running short. Now if, she swallowed it or not, the same amount of meds would be left over. But no she has to be put down for ‘wasting’ the meds. Her leg hurts he so bad, she can barey sleep, yet she waddles all over the wagon train camp.

    Oh yes I forgot the missing child. Now this part is really dumb. The child is in her wagon all day, from before she got up to when she went to bed and felt the child when she stretched her very sore leg, yet the child never heard them calling her? Dumb, times three.

    I say thank goodness I borrowed this book from the library and did not spend a cent on it. If you must read it, to conclude the series, them do not waste a dime, borrow it from somewhere. Or better yet know the wagon master in book two gets the heroine, Copper, in this one. She is the one that does all the changing, seeing how brash her personality is and goes all meek. (rolls eyes).

    I can go on and on about the mess Ms. Copeland made of this novel, book three, but for the sake of room, I best stop here, I already said more than I intended to.
