The Letters-Book 1 in The Inn at Eagle Hill by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Cover Art This story kept me engrossed as I got acquainted with the rambunctious Schrock family and revisited picturesque Stoney Ridge!  Rose Schrock, widow, mother of five, and caretaker of her cranky mother-in-law, feels like she's at the end of her rope.  She needs to find a way to make a living and comes up with the idea of running a bed and breakfast. She expects opposition, but wants to offer a place of rest for someone and that turns out to be Delia, an older woman whose life is falling apart.  Rose's oldest has vanished amid questions about her husband's business practices and she's not sure what to believe.  Her oldest daughter, Bethany, is missing her boyfriend back in their old community, but Jimmy Fisher just might give him some competition.  Meanwhile, Rose may have caught the eye of a younger neighbor, but does she have room for anything more on her plate?

I loved most of the characters in this story, except for the mother-in-law!  I also found myself a little annoyed with Jimmy and Bethany for some of their choices, but some people just need to learn the hard way I suppose.  I really admired Rose's attitude in remaining positive and praying for strength when she needed it.  We get a lot of viewpoints, which I really appreciate because I love to know what characters are thinking.  This is the first book in a new series, but still takes place in Stoney Ridge so we're able to revisit old friends and make new ones.  I look forward to reading about the further adventures at the Inn at Eagle Hill!

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
