Welcome to Harmony, Texas-a place where family and friends live, work and live happily ever after. Three founding families’ descendants still live in Harmony and life is never dull. For Sheriff Alexandra McAllen, life is empty without her brother, the former sheriff, Warren McAllen. When a series of prairie fires break out, it is up to Alex and fire chief, Hank Matheson, to figure out who is starting it while protecting the town from the devastation it can cause. But can they fight the attraction that flames between them in the process?

WELCOME TO HARMONY is the introduction to a wonderful small town where everyone knows you and the latest gossip in minutes. A compelling story, Ms. Thomas introduces you to the residents of this wonderful town and in the process, we find ourselves wishing we could live there ourselves. Ms. Thompson’s writing is tight and the characters are multi-dimensional. With her trademark style, she delivers a heartwarming tale that will sweep you off your feet and carry you away within its pages. Get ready to visit Harmony, Texas and the people who inhabit it.

There are many characters that are mentioned in WELCOME TO HARMONY and you get a sense of who each one is by the descriptive and lyrical way this author writes. We have Reagan, a sixteen year old runaway pretending to be the granddaughter of Mrs. Beverly Truman; Sheriff Alexandra McAllen, a woman hiding something from her past that threatens her future; Fire Chief Hank Matheson, a man who loves Alex but is confused why she holds him at bay and many more that make up Harmony. Each character keeps the story flowing smoothly and tightly. When a string of fires break out, can Alex work with Hank to figure out who is setting them as well as their combustible attraction for one another?

Ms. Thomas delivers a story that will transport you to this wonderful little town and enchant you in the process. If you enjoy a well told story of friendships, families and relationships then I highly recommend the first book in the Harmony series, WELCOME TO HARMONY and settle in for one spellbinding ride. I look forward to reading the next book in the series soon and hope you enjoy your visit to Harmony as much as I did.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
