Happy Tuesday, Friends!
I have another review for you this week. This time I’m sharing my thoughts on Tari Faris’ Until I Met You, book 2 in the Restoring Heritage series.
About the Book
When she hears that the small town of Heritage, Michigan, is looking for a new librarian, Libby Kingsley jumps at the opportunity. Little did she know the library is barely more than a storage closet stuffed with dusty, outdated books. What the community really needs is a new building. But the only funds available are those being channeled into the new town square, and the landscape architect in charge of the project wants nothing to do with her plans.
All Austin Williams wants to do is get the town square project finished so he can do right by the family business and then extricate himself from the town that reveres the brother who cost him so much. But the local media and the town’s new librarian seem to be conspiring against him at every turn. Will the determined bookworm find her way into his blueprints–and possibly even his heart?
Novelist Tari Faris invites you back to the small town with a big heart in this second book in the Restoring Heritage series.
I adored reading about Libby and Austin. First I’ve been curious about Austin since that little hint in previous books. Second, his story hinted at redemption and I’m a sucker for redemption story (read redemptive heroes/heroines become my favorite).
The way we get to see Austin AND Libby transformed hooked me and kept me reading to see how their story would in. I have to say there are some really touching scenes in this book. I mean, break out the tissue, touching. And that alone made the book worth the read.
I’m so glad I read this (because the cover whispered “read me” and I have to listen to book covers) and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

About the Author
I have been writing fiction for more than twelve years. It has been an exciting journey for this math-loving-dyslexic girl. I had read less than a handful of novels by the time I graduated from college and I thought I would end up in the field of science or math. But God had other plans and I wouldn’t trade this journey for anything. As someone told me once, God’s plans may not be easy, and they may not always make sense but they are never boring.
