ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
What Wonderful set of characters and I was happy to see some of the old ones too!! I enjoyed returning to Stoney Ridge again. This is an excellent story and one that I feel that is a wonderful conclusion to this series!! I was so sad to see the series end. I love Suzanne! Her writing is just fabulous! I'm wondering if anyone notices that there is a theme here? At least it seems to me it is. The son returns home after being gone for years flat broke etc. I thought it was interesting to read how Fisher puts these lovable characters through different paces in their lives and learning how to get along, forgive and accepting. I like how Fisher makes it realistic and believable too. I love how she pulls you into the story from opening and just keeps you glued to your seat until it's finished. She writes these stories that will make you believe that the characters are realistic and believable and for me they are! I feel that I'm really there in the story with them! Some u want to shout at and some you just want to say yes because they've succeeded in what they set out to accomplish. I enjoyed learning about how different the Amish really are. Fisher has done a fabulous job in this area as well along with the knowledge about RH blood. Even I've never heard of this before. I thought the baby boxes were rather neat. I don't remember much about being that young or what I slept in. Baby boxes seems like a nice idea. This is a book that will make you want to eagerly turning the pages to see if Jimmy comes out on top in the end. Will he? Ya'll just have to pick this book up and read it. Guaranteed you'll love it
