Book Review - The Comforts of Home: A Harmony Novel by Jodi Thomas

Tomorrow is release day for Jodi Thomas' latest Harmony novel, "The Comforts of Home."

About The Book:

In Harmony, Texas, twenty-year-old Reagan Truman has found her place, and found her family. But with her uncle taken ill and her friend Noah lost and disheartened with his life, Reagan is afraid of ending up alone again, and she's not the only one.

Harmony seems to be full of people yearning to make a connection. Like funeral director Tyloer Wright, who longs to take his relationship with his friend Kate to the next level, but doesn't know how. And Ronelle Logan, a woman frightened of everyday human interactions, until she meets an angry, lonely man - someone just like her.

 When a terrible storms threatens the town, the residents of Harmony are forced to think about what they really want. Because making the connections they so desperately desire means putting their hearts at risk.

I really enjoy Jodi's Harmony series, and I was so glad to see that she gave the character of "Tyler Wright" his own story this time around. The middle-aged undertaker is so sweet and caring, and it turns out, a hero to boot! She updates readers on the other quirky characters living in Harmony as well, and brings in a few new folks as well.

I also like that the setting for this series is in North Texas, and Jodi gets the feel for the countryside and the sometimes risky weather conditions we experience here! And, as always, there is great romantic plot lines.

If you enjoy fast-paced and well-written stories that truly beat with the heart of Texas, you'll enjoy Jodi's Harmony series.

I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher. I was not compensated for my opinion.
