The Revealing is a lot of twists and turns and secrets come to light! Naomi King, who is hiding her relationship with Tobe Schrock, who is actually in jail. There are many twists and turns to this story and intertwined stories.
I think it would be best to read the books in order to really follow what is going on but they can be read on their own but I would think you would be confused about certain things! The secrets being kept and relationships, it is all coming to a close, I always hate when a series ends because you want to know what else is happening with the characters,
I received this book in exchange for an honest review!
Things are finally coming to a close for the characters at Stoney Ridge in the Inn at Eagle Hill series, in Suzanne Woods Fisher's latest novel The Revealing. An appropriate title since so many of our questions, for readers who have been faithfully following the series, will finally have answers and closure. At the heart of the entire series has been the investment scandal of Schrock Investments, a company created and ran by Rose Schrock's former husband Dean. When Dean died due to a believed drowning, embezzlement charges rose to the service that those who worked for the firm were stealing money from the investors.
Since Dean is dead, it leaves behind Jake Hertzler and Tobe Schrock. Jake has left and gone into hiding while Tobe is still serving a prison sentence. All believe that Jake knows more, but since no one can locate him, the questions remain. As we pick up in the Revealing, Rose is still struggling to make ends meet by running the Inn at Eagle Hill. Business has been picking up since people believe miracles happen to those that stay so she is thankful for that. Galen King has his heart set on convincing Rose to marry him, but she feels it's simply too soon with so many unknowns, wondering what will become of Tobe when he is released and how she will get out of the debt the scandal has cost her.
Galen's sister Naomi is hiding her own secrets, with secretly visiting Tobe in prison. She can't let anyone know especially her overprotective brother, because according to Tobe, once he is released from prison, he will be revealing more than anyone knows. He promises that he will right all the wrongs that he believes Jake is responsible for. The mystery still continues with why Jake has been so bent on finding the ledger books that are missing that shows someone was responsible for faking the account totals while skimming money. When two unexpected visitors arrive at the Inn, things will never be the same and more will be revealed than anyone thought that will involve both the King and Schrock families.
I received The Revealing by Suzanne Woods Fisher compliments of Revell Publishers and Litfuse Publicity for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions contained here are strictly my own. I love the way Suzanne didn't rush to fill in all the missing pieces of the puzzle that has been surrounding this scandal and in the end, we get the closure and endings we had hoped for. I can only hope this is not the end of my favorite characters from Stoney Ridge and that they will resurface in others series in the future. I would love to know how things work between some of the couples that eventually find happiness in the end in their own novels. I easily give this one a 5 out of 5 stars and includes a delicious recipe for lemon blueberry squares along with a discussion guide for readers at the end.
Suzanne Woods Fisher never disappoints me. Her books just have such an appealing quality about them. The characters are so well developed, and you just feel like they are your own neighbors. The Revealing is this kind of story. You know a Naomi, a Rose, a Galen and even a Mammi Vera, unfortunately. These characters are just like people you know in your daily life, which makes this book so easy to read and relate to. Another wonderful story,, very sad to see the end of this series, but confident the next series will be as wonderful. 4.5 stars from this reviewer.

The Revealing by Suzanne Woods Fisher is the third and last book in the Inn at Eagle Hill series. As a reminder, this is a series about an Amish family, as seen from the girl on the book cover above. The mother was widowed and started an inn to make ends meet, due some bad financial decisions on the part of her deceased husband. It is all about how the family is making the inn work and their life in their Amish community. A review of book one and book two are here and here.
It was sad to see this series come to an end. I have enjoyed getting to know Rose, Bethany, Mim, their neighbors the Kings and various other characters.
In this particular book, I really liked how Suzanne made baby Sarah a part of the story and how Tobe and Naomi triumphed through some troubled waters of their relationship.
I was disappointed that we did not get to see how Bethany and Mim's love life ended. I mean we saw them get to know a couple of fellows but that was it. Granted, Mim is just 14 years old in this book so it is kind of hard to show who she ends up with_.but it was like a cliff hanger gone wrong because the series ended with too many questions. It made me feel like the story of The Inn at Eagle Hill was left unfinished_.unless she is going to start a new series and share the missing details in it. I want to know if the inn ends up being the income Rose needs to provide for her family, I want to know if Jimmy goes into the horse breeding business, I want to know if Mrs. Miracle continues to give advice, what Mim and Bethany go on to do? See? Too many questions!
Otherwise I did find it an enjoyable read since it will probably be one of the only books I read this summer.

I don't know about you but I've been waiting for this book a LONG time.
And to think I almost didn't read this series_
Oh what I would have missed_
If you're wondering why I almost didn't read the series, check out my review blog for the post that explains it - My review of "The Letters" by Suzanne Woods Fisher.
What a difference four months makes_
Anyway, we're here to talk about this latest book in Suzanne Woods Fisher's The Inn at Eagle Hill series.
Oh My Word!
How can this be the last book in the series. It's simply too sad. The stories are so wonderful, I wish so much that there were to be more.
My only hope is that Suzanne will use the same community in her next series - at least then we might get a glimpse now and then of our favorites.
The Revealing is one of those books that brings you to your knees, completely and absolutely. About halfway through the book, everything and everyone is in such a mess - you wonder how anything could ever come out right. But in that unerring way that those of us who see God's will in our lives know, all things come together for the good of His children. Sometimes the best things even come from the worst possible mess you can imagine.
And do not be fooled, there are so many things that come about in a way I never could have seen coming. Suzanne Woods Fisher has penned a beautiful tale of love, forgiveness and hope. It is an amazing journey and, though I bawled like a baby when I turned the page to find no more - I would read it all over again_ and again_ and again, just to experience that wonder again!
And I sincerely hope to see another wonderful series from Suzanne soon!
I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
