Litfuse The Lesson | Suzanne Woods Fisher iPad Giveaway and Blog Tour

Centered on one of Suzanne Woods Fisher’s most loved characters, this is the story fans have eagerly anticipated. The precocious M.K. is all grown up (well, almost) and ready to take on the world–with surprising results. Fisher’s trademark plot twists and turns are as unexpected and satisfying as ever in this third book in the Stoney Ridge Seasons series.

In her wildest dreams, spunky and impulsive nineteen-year-old Mary Kate Lapp never imagined herself behind a schoolteacher’s desk. A run-in (literally) with the schoolteacher compels her to act as a substitute teacher, just as her restless desire to see the world compels her to apply for a passport . . . just in case. The only thing of interest to M.K. in the sleepy Amish community of Stoney Ridge is the unexplained death of a sheep farmer that coincided with the arrival of a mysterious young man into the community. Frustrated that no one takes the crime seriously, she takes matters into her own hands. Unfortunately, as tends to be the case for M.K., she jumps headlong into trouble.

My Review:

Another great book by Suzanne Woods Fisher. This is Mary Kate Lapps story, a free spirit, as you know if you have read the other books in this series. She loves her brown bees, and her red scooter. Can just picture her riding down hill with her eyes closed on this scooter...when she collides with Chris Yoder. Another collision with the then teacher, ends up making her the teacher!
You have to "love" Fern, she seems to have it all...a Love of God, and family. She seems to be able to see into another person's heart, and loves her step-children as her own.
M K is still a bit flighty, and of course, things happen to this young woman, and she doesn't always use the best judgement. She really does have a big heart, and she cares. When she makes a mistake, she is often devastated and remorseful.
Enjoy a great look into the Amish way of life, you won't be sorry.
