After reading the first book in the series by Tari Faris, I had high expectations for the next book – Until I Met You did NOT disappoint. This book checked off all of the boxes for me – small town setting, a librarian as the main character, and a storyline that warms your heart. The small town of Heritage is charming and full of surprises – like the moving statue. The theme of family, forgiveness and second chances is woven throughout and you can feel the emotion as you read. The characters are relatable and some more likable than others. The story follows four main characters – two brothers, Austin and Nathan, who have tension between them and two friends, Libby and Olivia, who get brought into the middle. I really enjoyed Libby’s character and her love of the Carnegie libraries – one of the best parts of the book – wink, wink!
I could say so much more, but it’s really a book you should read for yourself. With that being said, I do recommend reading this series in order, as they build off of the previous book. If you like Rachel Hauk, Denise Hunter & Susan May Warren, then you will find Until I Met You to be an excellent read!
