5 Hearts and Sweetheart Award Winner! “Karen Wiesner has another winner on her hands! Once again, I've embarked upon a series created by Ms. Wiesner which grabbed my attention from the beginning. I do not normally like to read mysteries. However, her writing style kept my interest once again. Wiesner has quickly become one of my favorite authors. Her ability to write across genres assures that many readers are constantly reaching for her books. She isn't afraid to attack the more controversial situations in a Christian's life. Examples of this are the scriptural command to “be not unequally yoked” as well as abstinence from sex until marriage. These characters are outstanding and so compelling. It was easy to get involved with them, as well as the many others that rounded out the storyline. The hint of book number three in the series excited me also. The action was intense at times and she presented us with another shocking ending. I highly recommend this beautifully written, emotional book to everyone. You will definitely be glad to have read it. She has hooked me on a whole new set of characters and town.” ~Brenda Talley for The Romance Studio http://theromancestudio.com/reviews/reviews/loveblindwiesner.htm

5 Stars! “This book has strong Christian undertones. I truly enjoyed the story. There are several subplots to keep the reader interested. This book is just as good as, and maybe better than, the first book in the trilogy. It is easy to recommend this book." ~Readers Favorite http://readersfavorite.com

5 Stars! “Author Karen Wiesner writes stories that will not only entertain fans of mystery and romance, but also warm their hearts with Christian faith. Readers will not find any hot, steamy bedroom scenes to fill pages (which often entice readers to skim or skip pages). Instead, this story will test your wits, give you a beautiful romance that is blind to skin color, and leave you with a deep feeling of satisfaction. Totally fascinating and very inspirational.” ~Detra Fitch for Huntress Reviews http://www.huntressreviews.com/

4.25 Stars! “This is a lovely story of renewal of faith and virtue and the sorrow of bitterness. The mystery includes some red herrings in suspects and some evil that Keeya didn’t recognize. I enjoyed the mystery and suspense as well as learning more about the visually impaired. I especially liked the message that the freedom that God gives comes with consequences for the choices we make. I enjoy this author who writes wonderfully real characters and life-like stories.” ~Martha for Reviews for Martha’s Bookshelf http://marthasbookshelf.blogspot.com/2011/09/book-review-love-is-blindand-it-dont.html

4 Stars! “LOVE IS BLIND…AND IT DON’T PAY THE BILLS EITHER is Orlando Bateman's story. We met him in RETIRED AND ON THE ROCKS. Orlando doesn't know how he'll ever get past the love of his life choosing to marry another man until he meets the beautiful Keeya Nilsen. Keeya is visually impaired from a plane crash that killed her family. Her best friend Blair also survived the crash but her face is badly marred. Blair takes care of Keeya's visual needs. After the man Keeya's been dating disappears and she finds her bank account empty and a chest of hand written songs by her famous Blues artist grandfather missing, she seeks the help of the police. As Orlando searches for answers, his feelings for Keeya are quickly becoming stronger. Men have always used Keeya for their own personal gain but somehow she senses safety with Orlando. This story had a lot going on. We got to know Orlando much more closely in this this story and what a great guy he was. I really liked how he described to Keeya what love was and then quoted 1 Corinthians 13. (Sigh)! I appreciated that Orlando never compromised his belief that a physical relationship was reserved for marriage. (Not that the desire wasn't there). He lived out what he said he believed. That's important! Keeya was a sweet character. I liked watching her grow and gain courage she didn't know she had. Orlando was very supportive and made a difference in her life because of it. I fell in love with Orlando's family, too! This is an inspirational read but deals with mature subject matters and so I would call it 'edgy'. There are a few 'words' in the story, but I felt they were true to the characters who were saying them. I would have liked to see a little more of Den and Sylvia but they did make some cameo appearances. You could read this as a stand-alone but you get a much better understanding of the storyline if you read RETIRED AND ON THE ROCKS firs
