Mi experiencia con esta serie:
1er libro abandonado por hacer de la protagonista una segundona en su propio libro donde la verdadera protagonista era la otra.
2do libro descartado porque esta otra era de verdad una horrible persona
3er libro leído, pero increiblemente poco romántico, forzado y muy absurdo.
Este, el cuarto, es tan asquerosamente aburrido. Amanda es un horrible personaje, igual que las anteriores. Y por si fuera poco hay más POV de los secundarios que de los protas. Es terrible. ¿Qué

The fourth book in Johanna Lindsey's Reid Family series. Beautiful Lady Amanda Locke, daughter of the Duke of Norford, is in her third season and determined to marry this time around. She meets a young man who she finds attractive but learns he is an avid horse lover. She never learned to ride due to an accident from her childhood so she agrees to be taught by Devin Baldwin, also known as Cupid. Devin is a horse breeder and seems to have a knack for matchmaking.

I really wanted to love this. Joha

If I have to read Lindsey's contrived use of the slang "a'tall" one more time, I shall scream! It reminds me of some of the romances from the 1980's that writers tried to make sound Medieval by scattering words like struth or Elizabethan by making everyone exclaim, "Zounds!"
Not to mention I hate Amanda, the main character. Someone should slap her.

In her last two seasons, Amanda Locke has been passed by like a wallflower. Though she is beautiful and charming, there is something about her that causes all the eligible men to steer away from her. Now, her father, the Duke of Norford is prepared to take drastic measures to ensure that his daughter is well-cared for. As Amanda enters her third season, she is hopeful to find her true love.

Except she encounters Cupid instead. Cupid is a moniker given to Devin Baldwin,

I received a copy of this novel through the Goodreads First Reads Giveaway.

Since is #4 of Reid Family series, I felt that I had to read the other three books.
“Let Love Find You”, is by far the best in the series.

The sweet Amanda Locke, the daughter of Preston Locke,the 10th Duke of Norford, is the most that a noble young man can possibly want as a wife, still she’s on her third Season for “ shopping ” a husband, hoping that she’ll finally find the man of her dream, the true love. Since she spen

Won from Goodreads Firstreads.

This was my first title from this very popular author and I looked forward to getting to know her writing style.

WHAT WORKED:
- The premise. It was refreshing to have the hero be the society matchmaker, a great twist on the hoary old cliche of bachelor spending most of the historical romance story evading the efforts of (usually elderly, female) matchmakers.

- The hero is not an aristocrat. Again, it was a nice change for the hero to have grown up in circumstances wher

Thought that I’m now addicted to Highlanders *wink*

But this book doesn’t wow me. Sadly, as I’ve seen all those 5 stars in GR, but to me, I had a hard time getting into the book. It was plain boring and I skimmed..A LOT.. *yawning*

This about Amanda in the mission to find the right man to marry. She has spent three Seasons looking the possible husband but failed. Devin or known as Cupid coz his matchmaking skills, help Amanda to find her desire match. As their daily encounters, Amanda then finds h

This one was ok. It's no where near as good as Lindsey's older books but still a worthwhile read.

WE DON'T WANT ANYMORE GHOSTWRITERS FOR JOHANNA LINDSEY!
I will just have to accept that Johanna Lindsey can no longer write, probably due to age and retirement years etc. And just accept that the work that made her famous will have to get us by for the rest of time. luckily she wrote many many books while in her prime writing years of the 70/80/90's. The style and era of bodice rippers is unfortunate to have become socially taboo. Too many readers complained and so I'll

My Summary: Amanda Locke is looking for love - but after two Seasons of being on the market, she still hasn't managed to fall in love (or snag a husband!). When she meets Devin Baldwin, she dislikes him immediately. Unfortunately for her, he is soon hired by her parents to help her find a match.

He does his job well, but before Amanda can secure her position in the life of Viscount Altone

However she wonders if she will ever find it, as does her family. Amanda is drawn toward a brute of a man, a horse breeder, who has recently started in the Ton's circles.

After not being a fan of the first Johanna Lindsey book I tried, I'm so glad I gave her another shot. Let Love Find You was wonderful!

Amanda Locke is a talkative, charismatic girl in her third season who refuses to marry unless she finds love. So far, her admirers have done little to spark her interest. When she meets the handsome and distinguished lord Kindell, she decides that she'll do whatever it takes to snatch him as her husband; even if that means facing her biggest fear - learning to ri

Wah, aku gak nyangka ternyata ada buku keempat dari seri Reid Family ini. Aku udah lupa semua ceritanya. Tapi karakter-karakternya masih ingat sih dan yang paling melekat adalah Raphael Locke dan Ophelia Reid :)

Let Love Find You bercerita mengenai adik Raphael, Amanda Locke. Amanda memiliki ketakutan sejak kecil yaitu naik kuda karena ia sempat jatuh dan tak dapat melupakan rasa takutnya. Sayangnya, pria yang dia sukai sangat menyukai kuda. Jadilah Amanda berguru pada Devin.

I think this book has a great plot, for that I might recommend this book.

However, that being said, the characters just didn't click for me.

Our girl here, is a chatterbox. She's a beauty, she's funny, she's confident, but she never shuts up.

Enter lead male, who I thoroughly enjoyed. He was a breath of fresh air from the historical romance alpha males. He was respectful, honest, caring, desirable... anything else I forgot to add in that's attractive to females?

He can help her. Honest. In his end

Good book. Amanda has begun her third Season and is still looking for a husband. She doesn't understand why she hasn't immediately fallen in love with someone. When she encounters Devin at a ball, she takes an instant dislike to him, especially when he starts giving her unwanted advice. Devin has set up a new horsebreeding farm near London and has started attending events in order to make more contacts for his business. He has fallen into matchmaking because of his ability to match up people he ...more

I think Johanna LIndsey is one of my favorite romance authors-- because I like her genre. She is into the 'princess/knights and turn of century lords and ladies/Pride&Prejudice time periods. Her characters are also generally rather bodice-ripping.
This book is an interesting divergence from what I've read of hers before. The genre is 1800s England Lords and Ladies time period, and as usual, there's a cast of characters who clearly are intertwined through multiple others of her books. This one

The Good Stuff

Got sick of historical romances a little while ago, so I was at first hesitant at picking this one up. However, I am glad I did, this one was quite sweet
Not at all shmaltzy or mushy
Amanda actually behaves like someone of her time and station would (with a little extra fire of course)
Devin sounds totally delicious and I might have had a few little fantasies about him -- hey I've been married for 19 years, a girl has to have a little fun you know
Quite a bit of humour for a histo

Deja que el amor te encuentre de Johanna Lindsey es una novela romántica histórica que continúa con la historia de la hermana del protagonista de Jaque al corazón. Ambas novelas se pueden leer de forma independiente, por lo tanto, realmente no son parte de una "saga" ni nada por el estilo. Sin embargo, para los que leyeron Jaque, será muy especial saber qué ocurrió con Raphael y Ophelia. Para el resto de nosotros, en esta novela solo tendrá importancia Amanda y sus candidatos.

They call him Cupid.



Devin Baldwin raises and trains horses—and as a hobby he also plays matchmaker, finding people of like interests and putting them together. He has this revolutionary idea that marriages work better if the couple has more than one thing they like to do together. Cuz that one thing, well, it’s nice, but there does come a time when you have to do other stuff and if you don’t do the other stuff together pretty soon you’ll be doing the one thing with people you do spend time with

I have read some older books by Johanna Lindsey and wasn't impressed. That's why Let Love Find You got stuck at my TBR shelf for a long time and it was really surprising to me that it was actually quite good.

The main characters were okay. The heroines in books from 80's were so naive and silly that I hated them, Amanda is different. She is probably not the most interesting heroine in romance ever but she didn't annoy me. In the beginning, I wasn't sure if I liked Devin; he was a bit too alpha m

I usually try to avoid reading and listening to similar books in one genre at the same time, but I did that this week and I admit this suffered because of it. Once I got into it, more than 1/3 or so, it got much better though and I did enjoy it. In typical Johanna Lindsey fashion, this book was full of interesting characters and lots of fun family dynamics. It was sweet and lighthearted. I have a soft spot for Johanna Lindsey, she is the author who got me hooked on romance. (Though I c

Swanangel15's Book Review
Wow, this book takes you on a whirlwind of a ride. A man called Cupid is enough to make me laugh, but how this Cupid found love for himself, was so beautiful.

Amanda Locke is everything a man can ask for in a wife. She's beautiful, smart, engaging and a Duke's daughter. But this is Amanda's third season and she is no closer to finding a husband than when she started.

Her family is trying their best to help her, but they themselves are baffled by her lack of marriage proposals.

She's doing everythin

Well yeah, pada awal buku ini memang membuat ngantuk. Harus akui itu.
Tapi ini buku Lindsey, so, selain rasa penasaran, harus ditamatkan karena karyanya bukan hanya mengenai hubungan antar dua tokoh utama saja.
Aku baca buku ini langsung setelah baca buku JQ, jadi terasa jelas perbedaan alur cerita mereka berdua.

Amanda, atau Mandy, merupakan anak perempuan satu-satunya dari seorang Duke, hal ini seharusnya membuatnya mudah mendapatkan suami, terlepas dari parasnya yang cantik. Namun Mandy masih ha

Hace mucho leí el primer libro de esta serie y no me dejó un recuerdo profundo ni ganas de leer la continuación, así que cuando me hice con este libro, ni pensé que tuviese que ver con otros. De hecho, no entiendo porqué la serie se refiere a los Reid, cuando los siguientes 3 libros que la componen están protagonizados por la familia Mackon.

Misterios editoriales aparte, este libro se puede leer perfectamente sin haber leido los anteriores, lo cual siempre es una ventaja cuando sigues sin tener g

Aunque tengo que admitir que esperaba MUCHO de este libro, ya que su sinopsis llegaba a prometer, no me convenció del todo. Al principio la historia fue muy lenta. Explicaba mucho sobre como Ophelia y Raphael se conocieron y enamoraron, algo que para quienes no leyeron los tres libros anteriores (como yo) puede llegar a ser productivo, sin embargo como todas las historias pueden ser contadas de manera independiente, me pareció que estaba fuera de lugar. Con respecto a los protagonistas, con este ...more

I won this through First Reads and loved it! I had been a voracious reader of Lindsey's historical romances for a long time and then had taken a bit of a break. "Let Love Find You" was a great way to get me back into her books. I loved the interaction of all of the characters, especially the hero and heroine. Johanna Lindsey does great dialogue - this one kind of reminded me of a Cary Grant/Rosalind Russell movie with the love/hate relationship and snappy comebacks.

Maybe because I'm a big fan of the author but I expected something more from this book. The novel starts to be interesting since the party in Amanda house (but I have already read 70% of the book to that moment!!!)
So it is a good book, with love and mistery (the identity of Devin's father and step brother) but I keep feeling disappointed about it because it is not a great book like others of Johanna Lindsey :(

Lady Amanda Locke, daughter of Preston Locke, the 10th Duke of Norford is in her third season on the marriage mart. She truly saw no hope her first season because of Ophelia Reid's beauty. It was clear that the men only had eyes for her.
It was her second season when her brother married Ophelia and they told her to have fun, so that season was over before she
