The Revealing, by Suzanne Woods Fisher (a book review)

About the book

The Revealing is book 3 of the Inn at Eagle Hill series.

Naomi King, soft spoken, loyal, and easily overlooked, has a gift. She sees what others can’t see. Intuition, she calls it. Others in Stoney Ridge don’t know what to make of it and dismiss her hunches and inklings altogether.

When a young woman arrives at the Inn at Eagle Hill with a shocking secret about Tobe Schrock, Naomi fears the worst. She can’t ignore the feeling that something sinister is at work– something more than a threat to the tenuous love begun between her and Tobe.

As signs mount, they begin to point to Jake Hertzler, the elusive mastermind behind Schrock Investments’ downfall. Soon, events spiral hopelessly out of control and Naomi must decide whether to listen to her head or her heart.

What I thought of the book

This is book 3 of The Inn at Eagle Hill series. I'll admit, I haven't read books 1 or 2...yet! This isn't the first book I have read by Suzanne Woods Fisher, though. As part of the Schoolhouse Review Crew last year, I had the opportunity to read and review the first two books of The Adventures of Lily Lapp series.

I had a difficult time getting in to the story, perhaps because I haven't read the first two yet. But then I was drawn in, which soon made it difficult to put down.

There was a somewhat recurring theme: Love does extraordinary things to people.

If you enjoy stories with messages of love and forgiveness, you'll want to read this book.

I was also given the chance to read The Rescue.

About The Rescue (a novella; only available as ebook)

He’s taking a chance on love . . . and there’s no plan B.

Will Stoltz has returned to Stoney Ridge with a clear plan. He’s opening a wild bird rescue center and is determined to rekindle his fizzled romance with Jackie Colombo, the veterinarian who stole his heart. But nothing is working out as Will planned. The leased building for the rescue center is a disaster, his funding is rapidly dwindling, and Jackie Colombo has disappeared without a trace.

When an injured eagle is found in a pasture near the Inn at Eagle Hill, Will is desperate to prove to himself, to his skeptical father, and to everyone else that his mission has not been in vain. But even the best laid plans are no match for fate.

What I thought of this novella

Since I am a bird watcher, and greatly enjoy observing these feathered creatures, I was first attracted to this story because Will Stolz sets out to establish a bird rescue center.

It was a quick, enjoyable read.
