Rating: 5/5

I haven’t read the first story in this series but I don’t think it detracted in any way as I thoroughly enjoyed this superb romantic suspense story which obviously works well as a standalone.

Hannah Miller is travelling to endeavour to discover what has happened to her sisters after they were kidnapped and their mother murdered. From the very start this is an action packed story where someone is now out to get Hannah, too. She is rescued by Lucas Grant and taken to the Inn run by an Amish lady where he works. Lucas is a former police officer who is considering becoming Amish. However, when danger keeps threatening Hannah and the young women from the local community, he’ll need to put his detective skills to work again and ask for God’s guidance as he tries to save them all. Can Lucas protect Hannah without going back to his previous non-Amish ways? Can Hannah find and be reunited with her sisters? Is this really a case of human trafficking? 

This is a real page turner, fast paced and an enthralling read. I really didn’t want to put it down till I reached the end! (I had to, life intervenes sometimes no matter how brilliant the story is). It gives some great insights into the Amish without trying to indoctrinate or alienate the reader. There are some fantastic secondary characters in the story, too, and a definite sense of community and faith. This story doesn’t end on a cliffhanger but there has to be more to come as one sister is still missing – I’ll be looking out for that story! I thoroughly enjoyed this intriguing story and will definitely look out for more by this talented author in future.

I requested and received a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.

Synopsis

After Hannah Miller’s mother is murdered and her sisters go missing, someone comes after her. Now the only way she can survive is to entrench herself in an Amish community…and rely on Lucas Grant, a former police officer who is planning to join the Amish faith, for protection. But finding refuge for Hannah—disguised as Plain at a secluded inn—pulls Lucas back into his old life. And when Lucas discovers the criminals after them may be the people who killed his partner, the mission to take them down becomes personal. With the assailants closing in, though, can Lucas stop them…and finally put his past behind him to start an Amish life with Hannah?
