SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY by Jodi Thomas is an romantic suspense set in modern day Harmony, Texas. It is the second in A Harmony novel,Book one was Welcome to Harmony but can be read as a stand alone. It is well written with details,depth, turns and twists. It has romance, love in the making, forgiveness, healing, hope, love of family and friends, and a town coming together to help one of there own. The characters are charming, engaging,great dialog and full of life. It is a heart-wrenching story of people moving on from the past toward their future. The hero, Gabe, who is tall, tough, hiding in secret to save his life, been in the military, hurt with scars from his military experience, a written of graphic novels who is living in disguise as a hermit,a loner and his finally coming to trust people, most of all Liz Matheson.

And of course, Reagan, the main character in Welcome to Harmony,who is eighteen now, has found someone to belong,trust, someone to love,care for,and a family. She is kidnapped causing the whole town to come together to save her. Also, we are introduced to a new character, Denver, a military buddy of Gabe’s. He is beginning to fall in love with the man hater, artist of dead men, Clare. Clare, has been deeply hurt in the past and is the artist of dead men’s portrait’s. There is several stories going on in the story, but they all are entwined and are beautifully written. Some find new families while others find true love. I would recommend this book especially if you enjoy heart-wretching, emotionally compelling, thought provoking stories this one is for you. This book was received for review from the publisher and details can be found at Berkley, a division of Penquin group.
