Book Review: The Lesson

About The Lesson:

Centered on one of Suzanne Woods Fisher's most loved characters, this is the story fans have eagerly anticipated.. The precocious M.K. is all grown up (well, almost) and ready to take on the world-with surprising results. Fisher's trademark plot twists and turns are as unexpected and satisfying as ever in this third book in the Stoney Ridge Seasons series.

In her wildest dreams, spunky and impulsive nineteen-year-old Mary Kate Lapp never imagined herself behind a schoolteacher's desk. A run-in (literally) with the schoolteacher compels her to act as a substitute teacher, just as her restless desire to see the world compels her to apply for a passport . . . just in case. The only thing of interest to M.K. in the sleepy Amish community of Stoney Ridge is the unexplained death of a sheep farmer that coincided with the arrival of a mysterious young man into the community. Frustrated that no one takes the crime seriously, she takes matters into her own hands. Unfortunately, as tends to be the case for M.K., she jumps headlong into trouble.

My Opinion
I have always loved Suzanne Woods Fisher's Amish books and The Lesson is no different!

It is the third book in the Stoney Ridge series and I have previously read and loved the second book in the series, The Haven! I was so excited to pick this one up and continue the story of MK, the younger and irresponsible sister!

I loved seeing how she has grown up but is still as silly and fun as before! But she is grown up and we get to watch her experience grown up things like a job and romance!

As always, this book is well written and had me excited to to see what was to come with every turn of the page!
