The Calling by Suzanne Woods Fisher

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

The Calling by Suzanne Woods Fisher
The Inn at Eagle Hill #2
ISBN: 9780800720940
Trade Paperback

Synopsis: Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher delivers her trademark twists, turns, and tender romance in this delightful and exciting visit to the deceptively quiet community of Stoney Ridge.

Twenty-year-old Bethany Schrock is restless. Her love life has derailed, her faith hangs by a thread, and she is spending the incredibly hot summer days wading through a lifetime's accumulation of junk at the home of five ancient Amish sisters. About the only thing that holds her interest is the spirited and dangerously handsome Jimmy Fisher---and he seems bent on irritating her to no end.

When the sly old sisters and a guest at the Inn get Bethany involved in running the local soup kitchen and starting a community garden, she suddenly finds herself wondering, Shootfire! How did that happen? Despite her newfound purposefulness, a gnawing emptiness about a childhood mystery continues to plague her. Encouraged by Jimmy Fisher, she will seek out the answers she craves---and uncover a shocking secret that will break her heart, heal it, and point her to love.

My review: Suzanne has another hit with this book. I was happy to read the first one in the series - Letters and was not a bit disappointed in this second installment in the series. You can read this book as a stand alone but I know after reading this you will want to go back and read the first one as well. There are a few twists and turns this book that will keep you turning the pages and wanting more. I like how this told the story of Bethany a little more than the first one did so we get a chance to know her as well.  This story brought up the issue of mental illness and how the Amish deal with that which is not unlike how we do. The story was touching for me and I liked catching up with the characters. If you are a fan of Amish fiction you will really enjoy this book.
