Then there's Liz Matheson: Vulnerable and fresh out of law school, Liz has never been needed by anyone-until an unsettling encounter with Gabe changes everything. And there's Liz's brother, volunteer fire chief Hank Matheson, who's starting to wonder whether the town's sheriff, Alex McAllen, will ever set the date to marry him.

As for Reagan, who's been shaped by the loneliness she's known most of her life, she's finally found a place she belongs-and doesn't wan anything to get in her way. But when her life is put in jeopardy and the whole town comes together to save her, she'll discover that trusting the love that's come into our hearts is the greatest gift of all...

My review:
Somewhere Along The Way is the second book in the Harmony series and it continues the story of the lives of those that live in Harmony, Texas. Reagan Truman is at the heart of the story and you can't help but get caught up in her life and imagine you are in Harmony with her. It is hard for me to give details of the book as they all end up being spoilers for those that haven't yet read this. Just know that you need to read this book. I love the writing by Jodi Thomas and it sweeps you away into the fantasy land that reminds all of us readers why we choose to escape into books.

You can check out my posting/review of the first book in the series here:

The third book in the series will be out in the Fall of 2001, so keep your eyes out for that. I know I can't wait to continue with the story of Reagan Truman.
