Two Steps Forward (The Deacon's Family, #3) by Suzanne Woods Fisher






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.

My Review





I loved being back with this group of Amish, they now feel like family, and I have come to know them.
Our bad boy Luke is now back, and wow, what a change, he has now grown up, but the story does focus a lot on his loving wife Izzy.
The author also gives us Sylvie, and Edith’s returning son Jimmy, and how they try to save Rising Star Farm, watch out for termites!
Now if you haven’t read the past two books, don’t worry enough information is given that you won’t be lost, but warning you will have to get the other two books, they are that good!
We have several tough topics here, with abandoned babies, but we are also shown what a great bishop David is, I loved what he does! Also, Hank with his words all in caps as he is I take it a bit hard of hearing!
Don’t miss the conclusion to this great series

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Revell, and was not required to give a positive review.
