    A wonderful, delightful story of small town USA!

    WELCOME TO HARMONY by Jodi Thomas is a wonderful, delightful comtemporary noval set in modern day Harmony, Texas. It has a well written plot and subplot. It is written with depth and detail. This is the first in an Triology of a small town's founding three families ( the McAllen, Matheson and The Truman's. It has romance, guilt, tension, and emotional issues, it also about family, friends,and home. This first is related to the Truman family. A teenage girl of sixteen who is actually homeless and was in the foster care system, decides to become the granddaughter of one of the ladies she was taking care of at a nursing home center after the lady dies. She goes to Harmony, Texas homing to find a place to call home. She finds so much more, she finds a home with the lady's brother, who knows she is not his niece, cut accepts her anyway, plus friends and a family. The characters are delighful, witty, and strong with problems of their own. You have a sheriff who has a drinking problem, guilt, emotional tension between the sheriff and the fire chief. The underlying story of priarie fires.Although, I would have liked to learned more about the fire chief and the sheriff. I would highly recommend this story especially if you enjoy a sweet story of small town life. This book was received for review and details can be found at The Berkley Publising and My Book Addiction and More.

    This fine small-town portrayal will remind readers of Debbie Macomber's Cedar Grove

    Although they named the town they established Harmony, the three Texas families who founded the place should have named it acrimony as the McAllen, Matheson, and Truman brood detest one another. They compete with one another over who should run Harmony while Sheriff Alexandra McAllen goes on drinking binges every Saturday night with fire chief Hank Matheson always nearby to clean her up

    Teen Reagan worked in a nursing home where she enjoyed hearing elderly resident Beverly Truman tell stories about her hometown of Harmony. When Beverly dies, Regan decides to relocate in Harmony; borrowing the late woman's surname. Beverly's brother Jeremiah realizes almost immediately upon meeting Reagan that they do not share bloodlines, but decides not to expose her. Instead he allows her to keep her ruse as he welcomes her into the family.

    However, the divided town must come together as a prairie fire bears down on it. Especially the three leading rival families or Harmony will be no more.

    This fine small-town portrayal will remind readers of Debbie Macomber's Cedar Grove although Harmony has its own stamp, that of talented Jodi Thomas. The story line is mostly a sweet concoction of townsfolk welcoming outsiders like Reagan and readers. The prairie fire and the Sheriff's drinking problem add tension and issues to an engaging but otherwise sugary portrait of a small Texas town.

    Great series

    I started to read book 4 of this series, hadn't read any Jodi Thomas, and found the characters so interesting that I started the series from the beginning. So glad I did. I have since read the Whispering Mountain series, except for the last book which I just got - and have enjoyed it too. Great author, nice story lines.
