Review: When Grace Sings

When Grace Sings is the second book in The Zimmerman Restoration trilogy by Kim Vogel Sawyer. This is not a stand alone novel. You need to read them in order because it's essentially one story. This book wasn't as good as the first, but it was still pretty good. I think the third and final book will be very interesting, and I want to see how she will tie everything up.

Alexa Zimmerman has done it. She has opened up Grace Notes B & B, and has her first guests staying. One of the guests, a Mr. Forrester, is long term so she has to put him in her little cottage. Sad to lose her own little place but happy to see her business starting, she knows its the right thing to do. A single man can't stay in the house with just her and grandmother. Especially such a young and attractive one....

Briley Forrester comes to Arborville to find some dirt on the so called perfect Mennonite community, but when he comes to the B & B he starts to see why everyone he is so enthralled with them. Determined to not be swayed by their kindness, he immediately sets to work.

Anna-Grace comes to Grace Notes to stay as a guest, and Alexa almost instantly regrets her decision to host her. Briley senses all the tension and begins to put things together. If he can get them to talk, he would have his story.

I enjoyed this book. It wasn't as intense as the first book, but it was still a great story filled with wonderful characters. I love how God is weaved in these stories as effortlessly as breathing. Other "Christian" books feel so forced sometimes like they have to say something about God but aren't sure what. But this author always makes God a focus. This story wasn't about forgiveness, but instead focused on who you are and what your Father in heaven thinks of you. As His child! I especially loved the end of the book. It was so good, but left me hanging! I was like no, what it's over?! I need to read more! ;-)

I was given this book free from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for an honest review.
