This is the 3rd and final book in the "Phantom Hollow" series. When I read the first book, I wasn't sure I would continue the series. It was very predictable but when I finished, I still thought about it. So I decided to read the second. I felt the same way. Predictable but couldn't put it down.

"The Grand Scheme" was my favorite of the three and I am a little sad the series is over because I really enjoyed the characters. The end of the book had some good reminders about why you should forgive

Intense! A page turner! An awakening! A great tale! This book had me wanting to read through out the night. I didn't want to set it down. It was well written, there were a lot of twist and turns, and though some of it may be predictable, not all of it will be.

I haven't read the previous two in Phantom Hollow series. This one came randomly to me. If you have any grudge or envy against someone, do read this book. Kathy Herman has laid out perfectly, how the gift of forgiveness can do magic in our lives.

Fantastic ending to the series. Everything gets wrapped up, although I have to say I could read about this family forever! Kathy Herman has a way of bringing the Lord's grace and convictions of the Holy Spirit w/o being preachy. I absolutely adore everything I've read from her.

I really liked this book. Rue and Ivy are quite the pair and though it seems impossible that they could ever get together, 'God does work in mysterious ways'. There was just enough mystery, romance, and family drama in the book to keep me glued to it to finish in one sitting

This was a great ending to a great series. I really enjoyed the storyline of this book and how Kathy Herman finished all the characters and storylines. I recommend this ook and series.

Envy is a terrible thing and can drive our hard hearts to do terrible things, for which we feel justified...

Good conclusion to the series. Mysterious fires beign set, Ivy's brother returns to town. Exciting mystery and really good analysis about forgiveness.

A quick read, but very involving mystery! I like this author. Read the books in order by the series, since all of the characters are developed throughout the series.
