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 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

Harmony Texas is an easy place to visit. They are fine audiobooks. But this was just kind of "meh" for me. It felt like there were things that should have been explored, that just wasn't (more emotional connections between Gabe and Liz) and a lot of things that time was spent on, that just didn't seem necessary. The end just kind of petered out, in fact I didn't realize the book was actually over and double checked that all part of the audiobooks downloaded. I'll probably keep reading t ...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

Depending on your point of view book 2 or 3 of the Harmony Series picks up almost exactly where the last book left off. Reagan is a year older and working in town and her adopted uncle's health is beginning to fail. We are introduced to new characters but Reagan's relationship with Noah becomes complicated, but then there are 6 more volumes for that to get sorted out. The final chapter read like a thriller.

A wonderful small town romance. Everyone knows who everyone else is, there is slow build and you really learn to love the characters. Comfort read for me.

I liked how Liz wanted to make it on her own and be independent and away from her family. I liked how the hero was a loner and became obsessed with making sure the heroine was safe. Gabe is a great hero.

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.

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

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

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 ha ...more

Book 2 in the "Harmony Series"

Stella and Bob McNabb: Stella helps at the funeral home by cooking for the families during the wake services. Bob is a firefighter and meanders around town when Stella is working.

Reagan: One of the main characters. Every section of the book dedicated to her makes me cry. She has become the town princess in 2 years and has an accident and then seems to get herself into a bit of trouble.

Noah: Reagan's best friend who showed his selfish side in this book.

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.

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
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-

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Loved this! Primarily revolves around Gabe Leary & Elizabeth's romance but Reagan & Denver are quite prominent too. Eliz. sets up her law office & sleeps there, happy 2B on her own. Her encounters with Martha Q are amusing. Alex & Hank go "off page" & marry at end.
Denver & Claire bug me. That romance is hard for me to swallow as a reader.
Reagan turns 18. I thought the shotgun gift was funny. Gabe rescues her twice & she calls him her guardian angel.
