The Lesson by Suzanne Woods Fisher

The Lesson This was an amusing story about Mary Kate Lapp, an Amish girl who gets into trouble wherever she turns!  She yearns for the exciting world outside of her little town when she discovers a man who's possibly been murdered.  Then she accidentally hits the schoolteacher with her scooter and she's roped into taking over her classes for a few weeks.  It's her worst nightmare!

There's some romance as she meets a new stranger to town. Does he have anything to do with the dead man?  Why is he so secretive?

This is book three in the Stoney Ridge Seasons series, but it didn't feel confusing to read this on its own.   I liked Mary Kate; she's a feisty character and a lot of fun.  This felt like it was geared more for young adult readers, which I wasn't expecting and I wished the mystery would have lasted longer than it did.  I thought the back story and issues involving the stranger and his sister were interesting and gave the story a unique twist. Overall, I enjoyed this story and plan to read the first two. 

Available January 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

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

  1. Hi Veronica! Thanks so much for reading my book, writing a review, and being a part of the blog tour. I'm sorry it's taken me so long to drop by--I had a wildly busy Christmas (daughter had a baby, son got engaged), and slipped right into January with a manuscript due in as "Lesson" was releasing. Just getting caught up now. But...I am grateful! Warmly, Suzanne

  2. You're welcome Suzanne! Congratulations to you and your family!
