Karen Witemeyer has become one of my must-read authors, there is not one of her books that I have not liked. However, her latest, "More Than Meets the Eye," is one of my top favorites of her books! The cover art is just amazing as well, look that detail!
Evangeline, Zach and Seth created their own family after being carted around as orphans and put on display for prospective families only to be turned away from and after a tragedy struck for them once again. These 3 have done well for themselves over the years; however now they are being threatened. Evangeline has always been rejected by those who come into contact with her or ridiculed or people believe she is cursed and honestly she has had a tough life and one would think she would be bitter and miserable. Logan Fowler quickly realizes that Evangeline is anything but that. Logan has arrived in town hoping to avenge his father's death and he is trying to find Zach whom he believes is responsible for his father's death. When Logan actually meets the Hamilton family he is confused and intrigued.
This is such a well-written story filled with so many poignant moments and lines throughout it. There is also humor sprinkled throughout as well as moments that will tug at your heart. The characters are ones that are easy for the reader to connect with and relate to and I found myself immediately feeling sorry for them, but also admiring their strength and determination. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it for those whom enjoy historical romance fiction!
