5 Stars Out Of 5
The story took turns I didn't anticipate!
March 22, 2013
Sarah Lapp's life was turned upside in a moment of time when she loses her husband and her memory to a gunman. She doesn't remember anything of her Amish life or the people around her. The only thing she has left is her unborn child. Samuel King is the detective chosen to protect Sarah because he was born and raised Amish and knows how to easily blend in with their lifestyle. It doesn't take long for Sarah and Sam to realize their attraction for one another. A life together would be impossible though because she's Amish and he's an Englisher, or is it really true that with God, all things are possible?
Amish fiction is not my usual genre but the cover and the synopsis drew me to this story. I am so glad I read it! This author surprised me on many fronts. The story took turns I didn't anticipate which, to me, really enhances your reading experience. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and especially Sarah and Samuel. The chemistry between them was superb. You could just feel the tension. I also loved all the supporting characters. You really feel a friendship with this Amish community. And I've got to tell you that this author created a really scary villain. There were parts where I wanted to close my eyes but I couldn't because then I couldn't read what happened next! I also thoroughly enjoyed the ending! If you're in the mood for a great romantic suspense, then grab your coffee or tea, a cozy chair and dig into Hidden in Plain View.
