Book Review - The Haven by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Publisher's blurb:
Spring brings new life, young love, and second chances to Stoney Ridge.
On a warm spring day, Sadie Lapp returns home to her quiet, unassertive life in Stoney Ridge after spending the winter in Ohio.
Gideon Smucker, an awkward schoolteacher, has been in love with Sadie since childhood and eagerly awaits her return. But does Sadie feel the same about him?
Will Stoltz, a charming and impetuous college student, has been banished for a semester and sent to babysit endangered peregrine falcons nesting at the Lapp farm. He'd rather be anywhere else . . . until he befriends Sadie.
As the hopes and ambitions of these three young people converge, life in Stoney Ridge may never be the same.
Once again, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher intrigues and delights with a story that explores the bonds of friendship, family, and true love in this captivating series.

My review: I really liked this book. I had a bit of difficulty remembering the previous book in this series, I guess I didn't like it as much as I liked this one. There is a huge twist not mentioned in the publisher's blurb that takes over most of the book.Most of the characters are lively and enjoyable while I did find some not as well defined, such as Gideon, I would have liked him to be less of a mouse. I give this book a 4 out of 5.
