The Lesson - Reviewed

Book Blurb:

Sometimes love shows up when you least expect it.
Nineteen-year-old Mary Kate Lapp yearns for adventure, but all she seems to find is trouble. Her dreams of travel have taken a backseat to her assignment to teach school this year. And nothing ever seems to happen in her sleepy Amish community.
But when a sudden and unexplained death conveniently coincides with the arrival of a mysterious young man, M.K. is frustrated that no one takes it seriously. She’s determined to take matters into her own hands and get to the bottom of it. Will she find more than she bargained for?
Centered on one of bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher’s most loved characters, this is the Stoney Ridge story you have been waiting for. With a surprise at every turn, a gentle romance, and a shocking answer to an old family mystery, The Lesson is the dramatic conclusion to the Stoney Ridge Seasons series.

My Thoughts:

I haven't read the other books in the series, but I wasn't lost at all. I loved M.K. she was full of spunk, and her determination even if it was misguided was fun! I was pulled in at the first paragraph and I kept reading until I was done.
Chris and Jenny's story was heartbreaking and the way that it tied into the Lapp family was even more painful.
There were many Lessons in this book. M.K. doesn't want to be the teacher at the school, yet with determination, and creativity she learns how to teach, and finds that she loves it.
The main lesson, was forgiveness and grace. We can't give forgiveness and grace without our Heavenly Father and the characters in this book learn that.
I highly recommend this one! A great read to start off the New Year!

Hi Andi! So glad you enjoyed "Lesson"...and M.K.! She was so much fun to write...to think in her POV (like your blog name!). Thanks 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 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 PS Hope you'll post your review on Amazon if you get a minute!

Suzanne,
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I so adored M.K. and I am going to have to read the rest of the series now.
Congratulations on the new grandbaby, and engagement! Those are such great milestones in a family.
I believe I have posted it on Amazon, but I will check and make sure.
Huggs, Andie
