"the revealing" by suzanne woods fisher

About the book (from Litfuse): Naomi King, soft spoken, loyal, and easily overlooked, has a gift. She sees what others can't see. Intuition, she calls it. Others in Stoney Ridge don't know what to make of it and dismiss her hunches and inklings altogether.

When a young woman arrives at the Inn at Eagle Hill with a shocking secret about Tobe Schrock, Naomi fears the worst. She can't ignore the feeling that something sinister is at work—something more than a threat to the tenuous love begun between her and Tobe.

As signs mount, they begin to point to Jake Hertzler, the elusive mastermind behind Schrock Investments' downfall. Soon, events spiral hopelessly out of control and Naomi must decide whether to listen to her head or her heart.

In this riveting conclusion to The Inn at Eagle Hill series, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher pulls out all the stops with a fast-paced tale of deception, revelation, and just the right dose of romance.

My take: The Revealing is a fitting conclusion to The Inn at Eagle Hill series. One thing I love about this series (and really all the books set in Stoney Ridge) is that beloved characters keep growing and evolving and, well, showing up on the pages of the novels! So while The Revealing is ostensibly Naomi and Tobe's story, we readers get to spend similar (if not equal) time with Rose (featured in The Letters), Bethany (featured in The Calling), and Rose's daughter Mim. Suzanne Woods Fisher really has created a world for her novels, and it's so fun to see which characters are going to pop back in!

The Revealing is the perfect title for this novel, as so many secrets are finally brought to light. And while several of the plot threads that have been woven throughout the series come to a fitting (and at times surprising) conclusion, not everything wraps up neatly. I'm hoping that in one of Fisher's future novels we'll finally see Jimmy Fisher—who has been a constant in the Stoney Ridge novels—become successful and get his own happily ever after. And I'm certainly curious about where Mim's story will go!

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know that Amish books tend to be hit or miss for me. (Honestly, it's more often "miss" than "hit"!) Fisher's books are always a hit—great characters, Biblical truth, surprising twists, and a few laugh out loud moments always make me anxious to read whatever she's releasing next!

Note: The Inn at Eagle Hill is a series that you really do need to read in order. So many plot lines are carried over from the first two books that readers who jump in with The Revealing will probably be very confused. You don't need to have read the Stoney Ridge Seasons or Lancaster County series previously.

My rating: 5 stars
