Book Review ~ The Haven By Suzanne Woods Fisher @suzannewfisher

Suzanne Woods Fisher
Stoney Ridge Seasons, Book 2
Fiction Contemporary Romance

Back of the book:

When Sadie Lapp steps off the bus in Stoney Ridge after being in Ohio for the winter, she is faced with a decision–one that goes against her very essence. Yet it’s the only way she can think of to protect a loved one.

Schoolteacher Gideon Smucker has been crazy about Sadie since boyhood. But his response to her surprising decision undermines his own reputation–and his relationship with Sadie.

College student Will Stoltz is spending the spring at the Lapp farm as a guard for a pair of nesting Peregrine Falcons–courtesy of the Lancaster County Game Warden. Will needs to get his life back on track, but his growing friendship with Sadie threatens his plans.

The lives of these three individuals intertwine, and then unravel as unexpected twists create ripples through the town of Stoney Ridge . . . and through Sadie’s heart.

Once again, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher intrigues and delights with a story that explores the bonds of friendship, family, and true love. Readers will enjoy every surprise in Sadie’s story as they search for the truth hidden within these pages.

About the author:

Twitter: @suzannewfisher

Suzanne Woods Fisher’s interest in the Amish began with her grandfather, W.D. Benedict, who was raised Plain. Suzanne has a great admiration for the Plain people and believes they provide wonderful examples to the world. In both her fiction and non-fiction books, she has an underlying theme: You don’t have to “go Amish” to incorporate many of their principles–simplicity, living with less, appreciating nature, forgiving others more readily– into your life.

When Suzanne isn’t writing or bragging to her friends about her first new grandbaby (!), she is raising puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

To Suzanne’s way of thinking, you just can’t take life too seriously when a puppy is tearing through your house with someone’s underwear in its mouth. Suzanne can be found on-line at:

My thoughts:

Welcome back to the fictitious community of Stoney Ridge, Pennsylvania. This is the second of the Stoney Ridge Seasons series. The first book in the series centered on Julia, the oldest Lapp sister. This time around we focus on Sadie, the middle Lapp daughter.

I think you could almost pronounce this book as an Amish mystery. Sadie returns to Windmill Farm after spending the winter with Rome and Julia in Ohio. When Sadie arrives home she also brings a newborn baby with her. Most suppose it is hers. She says it is not. But where did it come from?

Will Stoltz is a college kid doing an internship with the game warden. He has been placed at Windmill Farm to keep watch over two rare falcons. There is something mysterious going on with him as well. Who is this Mr. Petosky that he converses with on the phone in such a secretive manner?

Where other novels about the Amish blend, Suzanne Woods Fisher has her own unique voice in the genre of Amish fiction. She has the ability to put forth their beliefs and still capture a vibrant side of their individual personalities. I enjoyed this newest addition to the series and look forward to the third book which is scheduled to be released in January 2013.
