"Sweet Harmony" by Janice Thompson

About this book:

My personal Rating-

All the books in this trilogy are such unique ones, but I have to say that this final book is my favorite of the series! Tangie’s personality is so exciting and fun! Since this is a Janice Thompson book, it’s already a given that there will be lots of Spiritual Content, but this one had tons, which I loved. The epilogue is also a favorite of mine and so sweet! :)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!
