Harmony Mennonite Series Book Two

About the book:

Harmony, Kansas, has grown on Gracie Temple, including its Mennonite residents, a teen girl in desperate need of a friend, and farmer Sam Goodrich. Gracie decides to stay and take on freelance graphic work, but when her new client is a developer intent on bringing tourism to the area, Gracie is blamed for the idea and someone makes it look like she burned the barn of a resident who refused to sell to the developer. When even Sam seems to question Gracie’s actions, will she run back to the city or stay and fight for all she has come to love?

My thoughts:
Well seeing on how I totally missed the first book in this series I loved this book. Gracie is such a loveable character and there is a bit of mystery in the small town of Harmony, Kansas. The people of this town are so close knit and most of them look out for each other and I love the fact that meal times are such a big thing. This book kept me wanting to read more and more and not wanting to quit. I was totally surprised by the ending with the Sheriff. I highly recommend this book.
