Until I Met You

Title: Until I Met You

Series: Restoring Heritage #2

Author: Tari Faris

Publisher: Revell

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Christian Fiction

My Review:

In the second book of the Restoring Heritage series, we are mainly focused on Libby (Luke's sister) and Austin (Nate's brother). I thought it was funny that they were both new to the town of Heritage. I wasn't expecting that at all.

This was a very quick read and every bit as enjoyable as the first book. While it can be read as a stand-alone the major project carries over from the first story and there are so many character reappearances (which I love) that it makes sense to start from the first book.

I enjoyed the story being set around the library and the restoration of the town square but would have loved more focus on the library itself and the process. There is some drama in the relationships and once again a lot of miscommunication and not listening. 

The themes running through this book are forgiveness, unmerited grace, mercy, a double romance, one friends to more and the other more of frenemies to more.

Another great read from Tari Faris for those who love contemporary romance stories. 



When she hears that the small town of Heritage, Michigan, is looking for a new librarian, Libby Kingsley jumps at the opportunity. Little did she know the library is barely more than a storage closet stuffed with dusty, outdated books. What the community really needs is a new building. But the only funds available are those being channeled into the new town square, and the landscape architect in charge of the project wants nothing to do with her plans.

All Austin Williams wants to do is get the town square project finished so he can do right by the family business and then extricate himself from the town that reveres the brother who cost him so much. But the local media and the town's new librarian seem to be conspiring against him at every turn. Will the determined bookworm find her way into his blueprints--and possibly even his heart?

Novelist Tari Faris invites you back to the small town with a big heart in this second book in the Restoring Heritage series.


  1. I always like reading books set in or around a library. Even if the library is just a dusty storage closet. :)

    1. Me too! I am really enjoying this series and starting book three tonight :)

  2. Sounds like a good series. Interesting that both the MCs are new to the town!
