Book Description

From bestselling author Lori Copeland, When Love Comes My Way is a love story about redemption, forgiveness, and renewed spiritual awakenings set against the backdrop of scenic Upper Peninsula, Michigan, in the days when pine was king.

Michigan, 1873—As Tess Wakefield wakes from a frightening wagon accident, she discovers she has lost her memories. In her recovery, she loses her heart as well to handsome lumberjack Jake Lannigan. It’s not a two-way street, though. Jake thinks he knows exactly who she is—the spoiled Wakefield Timber heir—but he believes the accident provides the means to show her that she has a responsibility to replant the trees and not to merely invest her inheritance opening another of her silly millinery shops.

Then he slowly he begins to fall in love with her. Jake wants to tell Tess the truth, but before he can her true identity is uncovered, and then both of them find the emotional stakes too high. Will God intervene and show this headstrong couple that only He in His wisdom could have paired them together?

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat enjoyable, but superficial romance. October 8, 2012
Somewhat enjoyable but superficial romance. Tess Wakefield is the heiress to the Wakefield fortune and along with that comes the lumber company her grandfather owned. However, she knows nothing about lumber and plans to sell to its competitor so she can continue to make hats for her millinery shops. Jake Lannigan, the foreman of Wakefield Timber, wants to replant pine trees to give something back instead of stripping the land. Her grandfather had agreed to do this, but died before they could start the project. Jake and Tess have been arguing through letters and he is furious that she won't agree. She travels from Philadelphia to Michigan to sign the papers for the sale when she's involved in a wagon accident along with the new schoolteacher. She survives but the teacher does not. However, when she wakes up, she has no memory and is mistaken for the teacher. Jake suspects that she could be Tess, but he figures her teaching a bunch of unruly children could school this spoiled girl on what the real world's really like and maybe she'll change her mind in the process. And there's always the chance that she really is the teacher.

They both immediately fall for each other but Jake fights it especially as he starts to become more sure that she is Tess Wakefield and not the teacher. He also knows she's engaged, which complicates matters. What happens when her identity is revealed before he can tell her the truth? Can she forgive him? Will they fight for their love?

I usually like Lori Copeland's books but I have to say I was disappointed in this one. The romance seemed shallow.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings July 10, 2012
By Faye
Mixed feeling about this book that was in many ways charming.

Tess Wakefield, heir to a timber fortune, loses her memory after an accident and finds her self attractted to the cool and rugged lumberman, Jake Lannigan. Many incidents ensue, but will Jake and Tess be able to handle it when love comes their way?

As I said above I have mixed feelings about this book. I loved the setting and the oft-times humorous interactions between the characters, especially the teasing between Andre and Jake, and how the lumbermen reacted to having a woman among their midst! And I loved how determined Tess was to go along with the mix up -- because she didn't remember anything!-- and teach school, not to mention put up with a hoard of ill behaved children, who were far from the cute end of the spectrum!

To some extent I felt that Jake acted completely ungentlmanly and was just not much of a gallant hero, and while his actions may have made sense to him I thought it was rather unfair of him to take out his frustration at Tess on her, because she didn't remember who she was! And something that I really didn't like was how Tess formed the ladies of the community into a society, directing them to manipulate their husbands into building a new schoolhouse. In my opinion the way she went about it was just all wrong.

Overall, as I said above I really wanted to like this book, because there are some great parts, yet there are still some elements that I just get stuck on. One thing that I will note is that this book, though it is the second in a series, it has nothing to do with the last book, so picking it up out of order won't be a problem :) I can't give this book the glowing review that I wanted to, but I did like the interactions between some of the characters, and that everything did eventually get resolved :)

I received this book through a publicity program in exchange for an honest review. Thanks!

3.0 out of 5 stars I was waiting to read this book October 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The reason I only gave the book 3 stars was because I felt the story line wasn't as exciting as her books usually are. I was a little disappointed .

1.0 out of 5 stars unhealthy relationship December 26, 2012
If you want romance as in -a few passionate kisses- then fine, there are some nice scenes like that, but I found that to enjoy those scenes you had to forget the rest of the story. Forget that Jake has been absolutely horrible, mean, snide, and has put her in the worst possible situations he can think of to "get back at her" for something she doesn't even remember she did. I know the author portrays Tess as a ditz but really?! She goes from talking about how horrible Jake is to her to saying he's just so big and hunky she can't possibly look past him to see his kind and helpful friend Andre as a possible candidate. GAG! When she finally does develop a backbone, she uses it to break her promise that she would not stir up trouble in the camp. Two problems with this - why does Jake make such a big deal about making her promise this when there are no large unforeseen consequences that later turn up? Second problem is that she supposedly loves this guy and yet at the drop of a hat she chooses to break her promise to him? Doesn't sound like love to me. I couldn't even bring myself to finish the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Abrupt ending January 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I love Lori Copeland and her ending are usually well thought out. However, with this book it seems rushed, as though she was up against a deadline and had to end it. A little disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story for those who love a lumberjack hero August 3, 2013
By Freddie
When Love Comes My Way by Lori Copeland

1873 in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan

A wealthy heroine.
A headstrong lumber camp foreman.
Two worlds collide with the added twist of amnesia.

This historical romance offers an accurate portrayal of lumbering in the late 19th century and a plot that will keep you riveted. Tess Wakefield is in love with the millinery business. When her grandfather's death makes her the owner of a lumber camp, she decides to cash in and open more hat shops in Philadelphia. She sets out for Michigan to close the sale of her lumber camp while her wealthy fiancé awaits her return.

Jake Lannigan has been receiving letters from the new lumber camp owner informing him of her plan to sell to a competitor. She has refused his advice to plant seedlings to replace the felled timber and keep the lumber business viable for future generations. Now that she's coming to Michigan, maybe he can convince her in person to keep the business and plant for the future.

Somewhere between the last railroad station and the logging operation, the wagon carrying Tess Wakefield and the new school teacher for the lumber camp overturns, spilling them in a river. One dies. One survives. Since no one knows either woman by sight and no identifying information can be salvaged, most assume that the survivor of the accident is the teacher and the unrecovered body belongs to Tess. Then winter sets in.

Lori Copeland has mastered the art of conflict between main characters, descriptions that send chills down your spine in sub-zero weather, and secondary characters that are sharply drawn. This north woods story will carry you briefly to Philadelphia and back again, landing on the final page of happily-ever-after.
