Gracier brings small town Iowa to life. I hope there are still towns out there like that. If so, I want to move there. The book is beautifully written as everything is meticulously described in lovely language. Unfortunately, that flowery prose also slowed the book down a lot. It often came in the middle of some other event or character's internal monologue and I frequently wanted to rush it along to get back to the meat of the problem.

About half way through chapter two I decided I knew where this book was heading and for a long time it looked like I was right. Then there was a twist (making me only half right). For the last couple chapters there was enough occlusion for me to wonder if the book was going to stay the new course or return to the old, so in that sense it maintained enough of a mystery to keep if from being completely predictable. For the most part I really enjoyed it, but I can't say I liked all of it.

The basic premise is that Jessica returns home for her grandfather's funeral and is forced to face someone from her past that she would rather forget. It soon becomes obvious that everyone around her is hiding something and she sets out to find out what. This is all well and good, but despite the whole why of the secret being explained, I didn't buy it. It essentially comes down to a bunch of men deciding to keep some pertinent information from one woman. They do it for all the best reasons of course, but it's still far too paternalistic for my taste. I would have wanted the painful truth and would have a hard time forgiving anyone, let alone everyone important to me, hiding it from me. Who are they to decide what's best for someone else? It would be another matter if she was 12, but she's well into adulthood.

Jessica McCabe returns to Gracier, a small town in Iowa, after her grandfather's death. In addition to this tragic event, Jessica has to discover that virtually everyone has lied to her as she discovers step by step the secrets her grandfather has left her with.

I absolutely loved the description of Gracier. This small town sounds truly amazing (it reminded me a lot of the life in Stars Hollow from Gilmore Girls). Milissa created such a lovely and adorable setting for her novel. I loved this tight-knight community.

It took me a few chapters to fully get into the story and to get to know all the characters (there are quite a few of those). I thought the way all the secrets unfold is very well illustrated. I was guessing along the way how the story would unfold (but I was wrong on certain accounts...). I love a book that keeps you guessing to the end.

I really felt for Jessica. She had to deal with quite a lot, both physically and emotionally. Gracier is a sweet and charming novel which highlights that true love will conquer all obstacles.

This was a fabulous read from start to finish. This story was full of twists and a few OMG moments thrown in for good measures :-)

It all starts when Jessica's Grandfather Jonus dies and Jess discovers a lot of things that her Grandfather had kept from her. Jess agrees to move back to her home town of Gracier and take over the veterinarian practice her Grandfather used to run. After much digging, Jess finally discovers the secrets that have been kept from her since she was born. Can Jess recover from knowing the truth and will she realise that it was all done to protect her.

I must read and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the Gracier Series

HASH(0x969570c8) out of 5 stars Gracier by Milissa R Bailey 5 May 2012
By RJW - Published on Amazon.com
I couldn't put the book down...had limited time but did it in 2 nights! I've lived in "little town" Iowa my whole life, Milissa's descriptions of people, little towns, hospitality are EXACTLY how it is here! Her characters certainly reminded me of people in my little town, after reading the book I feel like I REALLY know them....can't wait for book #2!!!!

HASH(0x96256d5c) out of 5 stars Enjoyable read! 19 May 2012
By Shari - Published on Amazon.com
Greatly enjoyed this book. It called to mind all the wonderful experiences of growing up in a small community. The story of Jessica McCabe and Matthew Cassidy is both intriguing and endearing. Add to that a group of supporting characters you can't help but love. Gracier is a must read.

Gracier was fantastic! It was one of those books that I stayed up late reading and picked back up the minute I woke up! I really loved the characters and the way they interacted. This book would be great for a book club because of the great discussions it stirs up. I'm excited to read the rest of the series!

Great book. I liked the two possibilities of where the story was headed and then finding out which way it ended. Why to go Missy!
