I had a hard time getting into this book at first, but once I did it didn't take me too long to become interested in Rachel and Joe's lives. The mystery of Joe's past and the action in Rachel's job entwined to make a fairly good action/mystery. While I thought that some of the events that took place could've been more dramatic and made better scenes, overall I was happy with the story. I was a little annoyed by the feminist aspects of the book. There were several scenes where I had hoped that Joe would be a rescuer when Rachel saves herself, and Rachel was very independent. Rachel also was very suspicious when, at least I thought, she had no real reason to. Maybe a little suspicious and cautious under the circumstances, but Rachel seemed to go overboard in my opinion. Though that did aggravate me as I read the book and it did make me enjoy it less, it is not something that every reader would find a problem with.
This book was very clean and had only a few hinting expressions that implied that he desired her, but other than that only kissing was present.
Overall, Love Finds You In Sugarcreek, Ohio was a pleasent one-time-read. I think many others would really enjoy this book. If you are interested in purchasing this book, go HERE.
