I was ready to pick up the second book directly after reading the first one. The Gift (The Prairie State Friends) by Wanda E. Brunstetter is the second book in the Prairie State Friends. I was so excited to find out what happened with the great
Follow the heart-wrenching story of Adam Beachy, whose mother walked out on him and his family—and away from the Amish faith. Now he balks at the idea of ever marrying and having a family of his own. But when tragedy strikes, Adam is suddenly a father figure to his three nieces and finds himself needing a wife. Despite their differences over her practice of reflexology, Leah Mast seems the best option to fill that role. Can they make it work in a modern-day marriage of convenience?
I wasn't sure what to expect of the second book in this series because I have never read this author but the book picked up at the end of the last book but it followed other characters more closely then the ones in the first book. It was nice to see some of the other characters that you followed in the first book while getting to know new ones in the same small town. My only problem was that I was waiting all of the book for what happened in the last two pages and then it was over. I can't wait to read the third book to see if it continues but I would have liked a little more closer at the end...so that might be why it works that way. I hope that you enjoy this series as much as I have and let me know what you think about books that end too quickly. I hope that you pick this up at your local library or bookstore to check for yourself.
