Publisher's Description

A mysterious outsider casts a long shadow on Ohio's Amish country. Policewoman Rachel Troyer has always looked after her three elderly Amish aunts, proprietors of a farmhouse inn near Sugarcreek, Ohio. The idyllic town is popular with tourists, who come to sample its famous Amish goods. But one thing is clear to Rachel - Joe Matthews is no tourist. When the bearded stranger lands on her aunts' doorstep, begging shelter for himself and his young son, Rachel is suspicious. Will she be able to uncover Joe's secrets despite her aunts' - and her own - growing affection for him?

In Serena B. Miller's enjoyable novel, a little hospitality, faith, and friendship lead Rachel Troyer to the discovery that Love Finds You in Sugarcreek, Ohio. As a somewhat jaded policewoman, Rachel feels only relief when her three elderly Amish aunts finally close their farmhouse hotel and settle into retirement. Unfortunately, when a strange man and his young son get stranded in town, the sisters offer them a place to stay. It seems clear to Rachel that Joe Matthews is hiding something, but despite her policewoman instincts, a friendship begins. Joe never meant to stop in Sugarcreek, but he hasn't felt safe and welcome in any place in a long time. When he considers settling down, will his new friendships be strong enough to weather his past?

Miller's confident, welcoming writing makes this book pleasant to read. The third person point of view alternates between Rachel's and Joe's eyes. Miller works in a lot of information about Sugarcreek and the Amish, which generally enhances the story rather than distracting from it. Although it includes some mystery and action, the core of the book lies in relationships. Besides Joe and Rachel's growing friendship, the family relationships between Joe and his son and Rachel and her spinster aunts receive considerable attention.

I found this novel pleasant, but not groundbreaking in any way. Although it includes Amish characters and information, Love Finds You in Sugarcreek, Ohio is not primarily an Amish story, as neither of the main characters is Amish. Themes of faith in God, the blessing of simplicity, and the importance of hospitality are developed throughout. Miller stays away from any objectionable material, so teens can enjoy her book. It delivers a nice reading experience for women looking for a Christian mystery-romance novel. – Kristina Charles,
