Tinch Turner is trying to get on with his life after losing his beloved wife. He spends his nights drunk, brooding and fighting; anything to forget his sadness and loss. But when one too many fights land him in the ER, he finds himself meeting the new doctor in town, Addison Spencer. He is intrigued by the pretty doctor even though she wants nothing to do with him or any man for that matter. That is until a little boy steals not just Addison’s heart but also Tinch’s as well. Meanwhile in Harmony, Regan Truman is still grieving over her beloved uncle’s death and finding out when one life ends, another begins when the Wright Funeral Home celebrates a new baby, the first in over forty years.

I adore Ms. Thomas’s Harmony, Texas series immensely. In her fourth book, we meet some new characters as well as catch up on some of our favorites as well. Ms. Thomas’s Harmony, Texas series is one full of endearing characters, storylines that steal the heart and romance that makes you breathless. What  I love about this series is how the reader gets to see how the town is, fall in love with everyone there and finds themselves longing to go to Harmony, Texas. This is a series that the author knows intimately and it shows in her stories set within this small town. The writing is tight, story flows nicely and the characters are very well written.

In Harmony, Texas, you get all kinds of people but for Addison Spencer and Tinch Turner, a second chance at love and family scares the pants off of them. Both have issues that stem from their past but when a little boy is on their doorstep, it just might be the means for these two to find it in them to forgive and move on. Addison and Tinch have some serious sparks even as they try to stay away from one another. All the characters-main and secondary ones-are very well written and capture each of their personalities, vulnerabilities and more perfectly within the pages of JUST DOWN THE ROAD. I really enjoyed meeting some new friends as well as catching up with a few old ones from past books.

If you enjoy heartwarming tales set in a small town, then you will enjoy the Harmony, Texas series by Jodi Thomas. I highly recommend this series for those looking for a pick me up after a hard day. You don’t need to read them in order but I highly recommend you do so just to get the feel of the entire series. I can’t wait to see what happens next in Harmony and who may be visiting the town.
