Book Review and Author iPad Giveaway~The Lesson

About The Lesson: Mary Kate Lapp is a feisty, intelligent 19-year-old living in an Old Order Amish community.   She dreams of travel, and is dismayed to find out she has been assigned to be the new teacher at the schoolhouse!  While she is trying to figure out how to get out of this horrible job, a death takes place in the community and Mary Kate is at the center of the investigation, determined to solve the murder! All of this, along with the arrival of a new young man and his little sister in town turns Mary Kate's world upside-down!

My Thoughts: The Lesson is another wonderful novel by Suzanne Woods Fisher, the third book in the Stoney Ridge Seasons series. I had read the first two books, and the character Mary Kate Lapp was so much fun in the previous two! I was so glad when I saw this book was going to center around Mary Kate!  I loved that there was so much going on in this story-Mary Kate Lapp is not your normal Amish young woman, she seems to attract trouble!  Her personal journey overcoming her fear at being the local schoolteacher is inspiring, and  the new character Chris Yoder was a great addition!  The Lesson has characters that you  feel like you know personally by the end of the story, and the story moves along at a perfect pace.  Even if you haven't read the first two in this series, you could easily read The Lesson by itself.
