Gracier is an intriguing romantic suspense story of long-held secrets, drama and romance set in the small town of Gracier, Iowa. Jessica McCabe returns home to Gracier to attend her grandfather Jonas McCabe's funeral. Jonas was the town's longtime beloved veterinarian, and it had been his and Jessica's dream to one day share the practice, but his sudden fatal stroke left it up to Jessica to pick up the pieces. Her homecoming brings revelations of long-held secrets that her grandfather had kept hidden from her. Determined to get to the bottom of the secrets and questions of her family's past, Jessica is forced to deal with the one man who had broken her heart, Matthew Cassidy.
In the first book of The Gracier Series, author Milissa R. Bailey weaves a gripping tale of mystery, suspense and romance that easily draws the reader into Jessica's story. Told in the third person narrative, the reader is transported to the small Norman Rockwell like Midwestern farming community of Gracier, Iowa, where long-held secrets and town gossip keeps the reader riveted as the suspenseful twists and turns of the McCabe family's past unfolds. And if that isn't enough to keep you engaged, add in some unrequited love from a best friend and a painful past romantic relationship with the son of an arrogant man who was Jonas' bitter rival, and you have one heck of a page turner!
With a large cast of realistic characters from a small Midwestern town, the author does a great job of bringing them to life in vivid detail and with engaging dialogues and interactions. The small town setting of Gracier is richly described, you could close your eyes and picture the sights, sounds and smells of the farms and the main street of the town and its townspeople. I loved the author's creative style of weaving together the multi-layered plot, the balance of mystery and suspense with the drama of a complicated romance kept me enthralled and guessing what would happen next. Gracier will engage you to revisit this charming small town and its townspeople as each new book in the series is released.
Gracier is the story of living in a small Midwestern town where charm, drama, romance ... and even secrets do abound!
Gracier is the first book in The Gracier Series.

Gracier is a nice read with some plot twists that keep it interesting. It is easy to read and uncomplicated, a good book for the beach or vacation. The story is detailed but not overwhelmingly so, unlike some books I have read lately. In some ways it is a straight forward story like it's Midwestern character. In some ways it is full twisted up thinking that makes it more realistic.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
