weatherlover1U.P MiAge: 35-44Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Left me wanting moreAugust 12, 2014weatherlover1U.P MiAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3Book 3 has Rose and Galen planning to marry but when Naomi and Tobe show interest in each other and a new baby enters the picture the tensions rise. Naomi is dealing with a secret and eating her weight in TUMS until Tobes release from prison for his part in his fathers business collapse. Bethany is still waiting on Jimmy to ask her to marry him. Yet he keeps finding reasons to put it off. Bethany sets out to help him along by finding his missing horse. Yet as she tries to help him she finds herself not so sure she still wants to marry him! Throw in Mrs. Miracles advice column in the paper and you have one heck of a book.
This book hits the ground running as it takes up right where book two stopped. I enjoyed this book a lot but was also frustrated with how this book ended.
What I liked: This is not a book you can pick up without reading the books before it. The characters have well established plots and they continue to develop as the series progresses. Even though the storyline changes some with each book the basic storyline is the same. Rose who opened the series is still questioning if she will marry Galen. Bethany is struggling with Jimmy and now Naomi enters with her feelings for Tobe. It is very easy to get attached to this family.
What I didnt like: I finished this book thinking there was going to be another book in this series as it felt like the ending left me with more questions than answers. Im disappointed to know this series is finished. Will Bethany and Jimmy ever marry? The 2nd book of the series left you thinking they would but book three threw a huge monkey wrench into their relationship and it was not really answered. Maybe the next series will answer some of the questions this series leaves. Time will tell.
Overall this was a good book. I love the depth of the story and the huge surprise Tobe and Naomi dropped on their families. I did not see that one coming! The author is known for curve balls in her plots and that is one of the things I love about her work! I highly recommend this series but to better understand the family you need to read book one. I came in at book two and even though I was able to read the books without feeling lost I don't feel I know Rose as well I would have had I read the first book.

Booklover105 Stars Out Of 5I love Stoney Ridge! Please let there be more!July 27, 2014Booklover10Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Oh how I have missed Stoney Ridge! I felt like I was back home as I met up with familiar faces and sweet friends. I like how there was so much going on in this book. The focus was on Naomi King, but truly the book is about the entire King family. I feel like I know so much about each one in the family.
And then there are the courtships some are in or are wanting to be in. We get to see Galen and good old Jimmy again. And then there's Tobe and Danny.
I was glad that Jake was back because I hated how he had gotten Tobe in trouble previously. I had no idea how manipulating he could be! Suzanne Woods Fisher did a wonderful job incorporating some suspense within the story about halfway through. And I would never have expected so many paths to cross like they did.
I hate to think that this book is the last in the Inn at Eagle Hill series that is set in Stoney Ridge. I don't want to say goodbye to these characters. Jimmy was left a little unfinished so I hope that means that we get to dive back into Stoney Ridge and our favorite characters!
I received this book free from Revell Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion of this book.

This is a wonderful series, and a wonderful book! When a young women arrives at the Inn with some very shocking news, everything was in a shambles at the Inn. Tobe would be coming home soon, but what will he find when he gets there? Naomi is still taking trips to the prison to see Tobe, with her brother Galen's knowledge, in fact Galen just will not admit that Naomi and Tobe have feeling for each other. And Rose and Galen are not always seeing eye to eye on things, so they break off their relationship. The sisters have a guest, their fourteenth cousin twice removed, and Jake Hertzler is still on the loose.
This book has a lot going on, but the author pulled it together in a awesome ending that will stay with you for a while. The relationships here are so real they feel like family, even though I am not Amish. Even after I finished this series, I kept thinking about the characters and wondering how they were doing. This is a wonderful ending to a wonderful series that I highly recommend. I would say that you will enjoy it more if you pick up the first two books in this series and read them all together.
I received this book from Revell Publishers to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 55.

By Suzanne Woods Fisher
Naomi King is engaged to a wonderful Amish Young man and is happy, or is she?
When old crushes, neighbors, and pre-flames return to the scene more than the cat comes out of the bag!
Just when Naomi sticks out her social foot and steps with confidence in trust of her BBF and neighbor, who shared some butterflies in the stomach moments -before she became engaged to Galen Mr. wonderful and Just Right, enter pressure!
Or is Galen her fiancÃÂ© all she thinks?
Is her old neighbor, BBF, Crush without acknowledgement, not as _unsuitable as he seems?
Enter a gorgeous Princess, and luckily, eventually_Naomi sorts out many improbable ideas.
It's the worst of our culture raining down on the Amish, and trying to reign in, and take over the happiness of Naomi and those she loves.
Contentment rules, faith remains steady for at least one faith-sparker, with many trying to hold on to their good, and we end with a sigh for Naomi's life. But there are a few strands that may lead to another sequel. This follows the first book about the motivated but more socially innocent versus scammers
The beauty of these books is the applicability to modern life. There are many people who could fall, and have been pressed by the same bad of culture. The journey to truth and resolution is heartening. Good people are the same, and that makes this book very appealing.
