First Line Friday #110

More Than Meets the Eye was written by one of my favorite authors, Karen Witemeyer. This is a Historical Christian Fiction.

First Line:

1879 — Fannin County, TX

"Don't lose heart, children."

Chapter 1:
July 1894 — Pecan Gap, TX

Logan Fowler dismounted outside the Lucky Lady Saloon, anticipation thrumming in his veins.

My Thoughts:

I love Karen Witemeyer’s book and this one is no exception. Eva and her two stepbrothers only have each other after a train wreck. Zack, the oldest, helps them find food and shelter. Eva grows into a lovely young woman, but she has eyes that do not match. One is blue and one is brown. Unfortunately, people fear her and mistreat her because of this anomaly.

Logan only wants revenge. His father had been cheated out of his home and farm in a game of cards. Logan wants to find the man who did this to his family and play against him to get back what was rightfully his. When Logan meets Eva, he immediately feels drawn to her. Unfortunately, she’s the sister of the man who cheated his Dad and destroyed his family.

This story is well developed and interesting. It’s mysterious, suspenseful, and romantic. I loved the romance between Logan and Eva, as well as the love Eva shares with her two brothers who helped raise her. This story does not disappoint. The ending is very satisfying.
