Tender Mercies (Men of Lancaster County Book 2) - Eli Easton 3.5 stars

This was another enjoyable read from Eli Easton, but it didn't work quite as well for me as [b:A Second Harvest|29827939|A Second Harvest (Men of Lancaster County, #1)|Eli Easton|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1464754000s/29827939.jpg|50191643]. I adored young Samuel and couldn't help but feel for him. Eddie had good intentions for the animal rescue, but was in over his head. I like a good slow build, but felt the romance was skimped on a bit here and I really didn't feel the chemistry between the two. There was so much time where the men were working separately without interacting much at all and a lot spent on how the farm was in trouble, I felt there was a bit lacking on the development of the relationship and Samuel's integration into the English world.

It was a good story, but it just didn't work for me as well as the first book.
