When I see the name Marta Perry I immediately think Amish romance. Boy, was I fooled. While set among the Amish this romantic suspense story is about to “English” people. And, to be honest, it started out more of a mystery than suspense though the who done it turned into a keep me alive really well and very smoothly. The characters are awesome and very well written. Trey is everything you could want in a leading man. Amanda has a lot of facets and not all of them loveable. Still her character is such that you care about her. Many of the secondary characters are Amish and their lifestyle and morals become major parts of this story. I started this story and could not put it down. The ending what not what I expected but it was an excellent twist. This story is an outstanding book for Amish romance readers and suspense readers alike. On a side note, elements within this story remind me of a story I read long ago about two waitresses and a baby. It would have been Amanda’s very early life if these stories are connected. But, as I said, just a side note and this is not to distract anyone from this awesome story.
