I really wanted to love this book. I enjoy Kim Vogel Sawyer's writing and was excited to be part of this tour. This was one of those books that was well written, but it didn't catch my interest. I had very apathetic feelings toward most of the characters, they didn't spark my interest. Briley was too much and Steven was not enough. I do want to preface my thoughts with the fact that I did not read the first book in this series, which may be why I didn't connect with the story. All that being said I will still read Kim's books because I enjoy her writing. 3 stars from this reviewer.

About the Book:
When Grace Sings
When trouble roars into quiet Arborville, Alexa and Anna-Grace find themselves the target for discord and exposed secrets. Can they continue to seek the God of all grace amidst the fog of confusion?
Alexa Zimmerman wonders if the Old Order Mennonite community in Arborville, Kansas will ever fully accept her. Her family roots here aren't what anyone thought when she first arrived, but she is hopeful that her culinary and hospitality skills will win the skeptics over. The bed-and-breakfast she's operating needs to succeed so Alexa agrees to allow Briley Forrester, the hotshot reporter from Chicago, to stay as a long-term boarder not knowing his real motives for being amongst the Plain folk.
But when Alexa agrees to host her cousin Anna-Grace Braun, the presence of extended family brings out Alexa's insecurities and sets Briley on the trail to uncovering a web of hidden truths.
Plans for a secure future and the sweetness of young romance hang in the balance when Alexa and Anna-Grace have to face that their secrets are interconnected, binding the two in ways they could not have imagined. They must trust in a loving, heavenly Father and His plan for their futures.
