About The Book:
In the two years since she claimed Harmony, Texas, as her home, eighteen-year-old Reagan Truman has found herself drawn to others who have made their way there, too. Gabe Leary, for instance, whose plan to hide out in Harmony is dashed when he becomes the town hero. Then there's Liz Matheson: Vulnerable and fresh out of law school, Liz has never been needed by anyone?until an unsettling encounter with Gabe changes everything. And there's Liz's brother, volunteer fire chief Hank Matheson, who's starting to wonder where the town's sheriff, Alex McAllen, will ever set the date to marry him.
My Review:As for Reagan, who's been shaped by the loneliness she's know most of her life, she's finally found a place she belongs?and doesn't want anything to get in her way. But when her life is put in jeopardy and the whole town comes together to save her, she'll discover that trusting the love that's come into our hearts is the greatest gift of all?
I love the way Jodi Thomas writes. Her characters are fully explored and her writing is descriptive, emotionally charged, and she has a talent for putting her readers squarely in the middle of her stories. The whole Harmony series, of which there are two at this point, is great. There are a lot of characters to keep up with, a whole town of them, but somehow the author makes it easy through her unique characterization of each. I give this book FIVE STARS.
