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.Read more ›
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.
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
