Two Steps Forward
Back and broke in Stoney Ridge, Jimmy Fisher has coasted as long as he could through life on charm, good looks, and deep-set dimples. They always worked just fine for him—until they didn't. His smile has no effect on the violet-eyed beauty he met at the Bent N' Dent, the one with that stunning horse. She's offered him a job, but nothing else.
The last thing Sylvie Schrock King needs around Rising Star Farm is a grown boy working for her, especially her neighbor Edith's son. The woman holds a serious grudge against Sylvie and her son, and hiring Jimmy Fisher will only fan the flames of Edith's rancor. But Sylvie is desperate for help on the farm, and Jimmy understands horses like no one else.
While Jimmy's lazy smile and teasing ways steal Sylvie's heart, Edith is working on a way to claim her land. Has Sylvie made another terrible mistake? Or is it too late to outfox the fox? More importantly . . . just who is the fox?
Writing with both wit and warmth, Fisher delivers a supremely satisfying conclusion to the popular Deacon's Family series.
I am a fan of this author's. If you enjoy reading Amish stories or just a good story in general, than, you will want to check out books from this author. This is the first book I have read in this series. This book can be read as a stand alone novel.
I instantly connected with the characters. Although, I must admit that Hank did get on my nerves. He was always talking in CAPS as if he was yelling. In a way, he may have been yelling or just really loud. I just did not like whenever he talked it was all in CAPS.
Everyone had a story that was close to them. You could not help but feel for each and every one of them. In honestly; I had no favorites as I liked everyone. By the end, everyone had found redemption, while learning forgiveness and second chances.
