I loved this Amish romance. It was so different that most as many non-traditional/stereotypical Amish traits and jobs came into play. Never would I have expected to find an Amish EMT nor would I have expected to learn of an Amish family being involved with illegal activities. To even make this book more unique is Sadie is an unmarried pregnant Amish woman who has been sent to a new community to live with relatives she’d never met. So not only is the romance a bit different but there is a mystery element which over shadows the entire community. I was hooked almost from the first page and didn’t want to put it down. My interest was kept and I loved how it showed the problems of balancing between two worlds. This has to be the most unique Amish romance that I’ve ever read while still keeping within the Amish lifestyle. I absolutely loved it.
Sadie thought she found the man she would marry but when she finds herself pregnant she learns exactly what type of man he really is; and it isn’t what she thought! Her family is shocked at their daughter’s situation and quickly make arrangements for her to leave their community. Sadie has never met her mother’s brother and his family. She soon knows that there are secrets within the family that they aren’t sharing. When her uncle’s mother-in-law becomes deathly ill, Sadie meets an Amish EMT. Noah is interested in meeting this new addition to the Amish community but what is he going to think when he learns Sadie is pregnant?
In New York Times bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray’s latest novel of suspense in her Amish of Hart County series, an EMT falls for a woman with ties to an Amish community where people are dying similar, suspicious deaths.
Sadie Detweiler never imagined she’d move to Kentucky, yet here she is: a pregnant, unmarried Amish girl banished by unforgiving parents to live with kin she barely knows. The men are gruff and her cousins are secretive. Worst of all, elderly matriarch Verba becomes mysteriously ill shortly after Sadie moves in. When EMT Noah Freeman arrives, Sadie immediately notices he’s unlike any other Amish man she’s met. Noah is warm, confident, and has an easy way with practically everyone in the community, both Amish and English. Though Sadie is drawn to him, she has little hope he will reciprocate her feelings once he learns she’s with child.
Noah can’t understand how a girl as sweet and lovely as Sadie ended up sleeping on a cot in Verba Stauffer’s kitchen. He also senses Sadie is terrified of something. Concerned, he checks up on her. Eventually they strike up a friendship and soon their attraction is undeniable. When Verba later dies at the hospital and her death is followed by two others, Noah’s boss wants him to dig around the Amish community for clues. He agrees—for Sadie’s sake—because only the truth will keep her safe and by his side.
