Somewhere Along the Way did not disappoint. When I started reading this one I fell right back into the wonderful town of Harmony along with it's inhabitants. Somewhere Along the Way is the story of Liz and Gabe and the town of Harmony, but it's so much more than that as well.

One thing I particularly love about these novels is the fact that they don't focus just on the couple who will be getting together in that novel. This isn't just about Liz and Gabe. We get to go back and visit with Hank and...more
Another stellar entry in Thomas' Harmony, Texas series. I was so happy to fall back into the town and the lives of all its inhabitants.

This isn't a romance novel about one couple, it's a love story about a town and all the people who live in it. I adored getting back in touch with some old favorites (Tyler, the undertaker, Hank and Alex from the first novel, Reagen) and getting to know the new characters introduced here (Martha Q, Denver, Gabe and Liz).

I'm just really sad that we haven't to wa...more

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. It came a couple of months late so I just got a chance to read it. I throughly enjoyed the book. It kept you hopping with so many different characters. I will have to try and find some of the books in the series. It is the first Jodi Thomas book that I have read but it will not be the last.

This book is pretty awful in that the characters are unbelievable and several are unlikeable. The heroine is a new lawyer who never did anything nor did she pick up a law book. Now suddenly she's a lawyer. You have a man who lives outside of town who knows everyone but never goes into town. Suddenly he's going everywhere. Women in this book allow men they just met to kiss them and snuggle. There's another woman who hates men and now she's kissing someone she just met. SERIOUSLY? I had to quit re...more
First off I would like to say thank you Goodreads. I won this book off of First reads Giveaway.

I have yet to read this novel, but I'm abut to start. I was waiting to get my hands on the first novel and the 3rd. I have peeked through and I want to read so right now I'm reading Welcome to Harmony. I soo want to know what becomes of Reagan. I will post a better review later on after I finish with Welcome to Harmony.


Wow. I just finished this book. It was great. It takes places 2 years after W...more
First line: "Stella McNabb credited her wild dreams to her Gypsy blood."

This is the second in a series of books set in Harmony, Texas. This is a good example of Jodi Thomas' fairly recent shift in writing from traditional historical romance to something more akin to women's fiction. Her new style often blends romance, suspense, and friendship. As always, her books are sweet and her characters endearing. This novel brought back several of my favorite characters from Welcome to Harmony, including...more

Book 2 brought out some characters. Reagan is learning the apple orchards and pulling shifts for Edith at the Blue Moon diner. She got to meat Gabe Leary, a hermit of sorts living in the back woods. He was in service and badly injured, his dad brought him home after Jeremiah fixed his truck; he told Regan to say thanks to Jeremiah, but no story came. Liz Matheson finished law school and returned to put up her shingle. The yougest and air-brained, finally finished something. A Mrs. Biggs shows up...more
I pretty much love everything Jodi Thomas writes. Not just because she's the nicest person in the universe, either (though she is). She writes wonderful books.

This one is a definite mashup of genres, smushing suspense in with romance and small-town women's fiction. There's a teenaged victim of the foster-care system living with her great uncle, and a battered Army veteran, and a sweet-natured funeral home director, and an eccentric B&B owner who's lived fast and hard, but never hurt anybody-...more
Harmony, Texas is a small community founded by three families, the Truman’s, the Matheson’s, and the McAllen’s. Two years ago a young girl named Reagan Moore showed up claiming to be the granddaughter of the late Beverly Truman, and was claimed with no questions asked by Miss Beverly’s elder brother, Jeremiah. Reagan loves this old man as much as he loves her even though he knows she isn’t his niece. But, they are two lost and lonely people that have made a strong family together. Reagan sometim...more

Thomas strikes gold again! Her latest release Somewhere Along the Way is another near perfect story about the joys of a small town. If would be a hard feat to not fall madly in love with these characters!

Harmony, Texas. The small town to which many call home and could never dream of leaving. Take Reagan Truman, for instance. Now living with her Uncle during her senior year of high school, she could never dream of leaving him and the town she calls home. It has been the only place to truly accept...more
Reagan Truman finally has a place to call home. Reagan works part time at the diner. Lately, Edith has been calling in sick a lot. This means that Reagan has to make sure she does all the things Edith does including packing a brown bag takeout dinner for the mysterious, Gabe Leary.

No one knows much about Gabe. This is the way Gabe likes it. Gabe and Reagan become friends. When an accident happens, Gabe soon finds himself receiving a bunch of attention as the town hero. Dorothy from the Wizard o...more
This installment in the Harmony series seemed to focus much more on the town relationships and less on the romance. In some ways, it was just as well,since, while I love Gabriel, I never truly warmed to Liz. She came across as really selfish and immature in Welcome to Harmony, and while her character improved somewhat in Somewhere Along the Way, not enough time was spent with her character to really connect with her. However, Gabriel was awesome. I loved seeing his growth and increasing connecti...more

I think I need to change my perception of this series. It's not simply a romance novel but a "small town" romance novel and I'm not just referring to the setting. There's also that small town feel where everyone is involved in your life. In this case it was Gabe and Liz who had the townsfolk getting into their business. After reading Somewhere Along the Way I've come to expect the romance to share the stage with numerous other story lines. I would say maybe half the book was focused on Gabe and...more
SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY by Jodi Thomas is an romantic suspense set in modern day Harmony, Texas. It is the second in A Harmony novel,Book one was Welcome to Harmony but can be read as a stand alone. It is well written with details,depth, turns and twists. It has romance, love in the making, forgiveness, healing, hope, love of family and friends, and a town coming together to help one of there own. The characters are charming, engaging,great dialog and full of life. It is a heart-wrenching story...more

I really enjoyed this book. For one I felt like I was going back home for a visit in the little town called Harmony when I started reading. I had been taken back into a story that I very much enjoyed from the last book. I knew all the characters and had a great background with them. This is the second in the Harmony series the first being "Welcome to Harmony" which was also a great read. This book can be read as a series or as a stand alone although I would recommend reading as a series as it h...more

somewhere along the way harmony series by Jodi Thomas
Mysterious Gabe doesn't like to deal with others so he keeps to himself. He gets a meal from the cafe and pays for it. He's got an office where mail goes to, right next door to the woman lawyer who just moved in. They've exchanged a few talks and kisses til she gets a call from him that he's in jail. The lady who brought him his meal has injuries and they are blaming him. Their pasts are revealed which makes what's happening now a reality.

I always go into the second book of a series thinking no way will I enjoy it as much as the first. Well, SO not true in this case.

I think my trip back to Harmony just might have been better the second time around! This series is such a treat! I loved revisiting the characters from book one and meeting the new ones and seeing how well Jodi ties them all together.

When I step back and think about all that's happening in this book it would seem a bit too much, but I never ever feel like I can't fol...more
The characters introduced in "Welcome to Harmony" return and a few new characters find themselves in Harmony, Texas looking for redemption, healing and perhaps a chance for love. This the second book centers around Gabe, a broken soldier who returns to Harmony to hide out from his past. But after rescuing Reagan who slipped and fell into a ravine on freezing night the town starts to thwart his plans to live a hermit's life. He meets Liz a young lawyer who's sleeping in her office because she can...more
3 1/2 stars for this second installment in the Harmony series.
Thomas makes good use of a couple of standard tropes (the battle-scarred loner, the perky girl lawyer) as she continues the soap-opera of Harmony, Texas.
The lure of a series like this is the feeling of catching up on what has happened to old friends. It has been 2 years since the events of Welcome to Harmony. The sheriff and the fire chief still haven't gotten married as the story opens. The funeral home director is still writing e-m...more

Just like a master weaver who can take threads of any color and weave them together into a beautiful fabric Jodi Thomas can take characters of all types and weave them into a fascinating story. While Somewhere Along the Way continues the story of Regan Truman she is not the only main character. There is Gabe Leary, a wounded war hero who only wants to be left alone, Liz Matheson, whose encounter with Gabe changes both of their lives, and those are only two of the residents of Harmony whose lives...more

I don't think I'd heard of Jodi Thomas until I heard people raving about Twisted Creek on some blogs. Or maybe it was AAR. Anyway, after reading Twisted Creek I read every thing on her back list that I could find. She writes a great story!
I love her contemporary stories the best. Somewhere Along the Way is the second in a trilogy about Harmony, Texas. Many of the characters from the first book, Welcome to Harmony, show up in this book as well but there are new people. Many of the threads starte...more
A continuation of her Harmony, Texas, series. Features a slice of winter life in a small Texas town and the key inhabitants facing major changes:

Reagan Truman, h.s. senior who’s settling in with her aging uncle.
Gabriel Leary, Iraqi vet, graphic novelist, hermit
Liz Matheson, fresh out of law school and determined to make it on her own.

The best elements were Gabe and his friend Denver--their relationship, camaraderie, their true-to-life dialogue. Thomas hit some of the male characters on the head...more

I jumped right into this second book in this series, something I’ve learned not to do over the year; however, I wanted to find out more about teenage runaway and imposter, Reagan’s, story. Alas, she is not in this book too much, though she is pivotal to many plotlines. A new citizen of Harmony is introduced, Gabriel Leary, himself a runaway three times over, returned after years away from this small west Texas town. It took me about 100 pages to really get invested in this new storyline, but it...more
I received this book as a First Reads winner from Goodreads. This is the second book in Jodi Thomas' Harmony series. I didn't like this one as much as the first one. The characters didn't seem that interesting or developed. Also, there was one character, Denver, who supposedly is falling in love with another character and the whole "romance" just came across as creepy to me. Extremely unbelievable. I gave the book 3 stars because there are characters who returned from the previous book and I lik...more

This book is much more than romance. It’s intrigue, mystery, healing, emotion and more than that, it feels like these are people you know. So many people think that life in a small town is quiet and calm. Thomas understands the truth. There can be more drama and adventure in a small town than in some of the most exciting cities in the world.

Somewhere Along The Way is a delightful journey back to the small town of Harmony. I loved every moment of it. I love the characters. The plot moves along qu...more
Just finished Somewhere Along the Way by Jodi Thomas and loved it! It's the second book in the Harmony Series and I hope it continues for many more books. It was great reconnecting with old friends and seeing their lives continue to grow and intertwine. I'm glad the series will continue so we can learn more about Gabe and Liz, Reagan, Noah, Brandon and his new found family, Uncle Jeremiah and Alex and Hank and their lives. I laughed and cried and felt like I knew the characters and that some wer...more
I had the good luck to find this novel tucked away in my bookcase and decided to get caught up with this series. I had read book 1 a long time ago, and enjoyed it, but I am more typically a cozy mystery reader and a big mystery/thriller fan so didn't rush to read this next book.

Well, I very shortly realized that this is not just a romance novel; it has intrigue, mystery and adventure all rolled in one. I found it sad, happy, heartwarming and very interesting at every turn. If you want just roman...more

What a sweet book! I pulled it off the top 20 paperback list on a whim and it was great. I really enjoyed the fact that there are many different story lines that are interwoven to form one really charming book. I would put this book on the "romance" shelf; however it is more worthy than that...sorry romance novel lovers (no sex scenes, but some steam). Jodi Thomas was clever to select so many interesting characters of all ages...the "scary" homeless man, the lonely mortician who writes daily ema...more
