    Surrendered Love with Janna Kauffman and Hiram (Troy) Troyer was enthralling and kept me turning the page until I was finished, which ended up being in the early morning hours.

    Janna, the bishops daughter, and Hiram had a past history of puppy love or teenage crush on one another. Hiram left the Amish community after a couple of his friends had been killed in a tragic buggy/automobile accident. Hiram, known as Troy currently, went into law enforcement. He accidently met Janna in the produce aisle of the store and was surprised she was shopping for his family and others in the Amish community. Troy needed to speak to Janna or her father regarding her niece, Meghan. Jannas sister, Sharon who had left the Amish community, had left Meghan with Janna and her family due to her negative behaviors. Meghan continued down the wrong pathway in her new school as it seemed she was drawn to the wrong crowd. How many times was Janna or Bishop Dave going to be contacted by the police with continued inappropriate behaviors that went against the law?

    Janna and Troy felt the fireworks between one another when they meet after the years of separation. They knew their lives were not looking in the same direction but Troy could not stay away from seeing Jenna. Jenna was determined to remain true to the Ordnung, after her sister had joined the English world. Bishop Dave encouraged Janna to stay in contact with Troy, even inviting him to stay for dinner when he was at their home. Bishop Dave believed Janna would influence Troy to return and seek forgiveness from the community. I was cheering for Jenna to win Troy back into the community, along with Troy influencing Meghan to accept responsibility for her action.

    There are suspenseful times with issues that surprised me. Laura Hilton knows how to create characters that cause you to be blown away with the trauma happening around them. Why would Meghan share an untruth with Troy about Jenna and her grandpa, when she was causing heartache for them? Was she that self-centered it didnt matter who she hurt?

    Surrendered Love is filled with in depth compassion, action, faith, restoration, mercy and forgiveness. The hero and heroine will charm and disappoint readers at times, but Gods ways are not our ways in how He works in lives who seeks Him. I appreciate Lauras showing Gods mercy and salvation in her books. I am thankful I do not have to wait for a few months to read book three, Awaken Love, since this series was published a few years ago. The Amish of Webster County series is sensational and over the top.

    This review was written for Surrendered Love - eBook.
    Janna Kauffman enjoys her job as a personal shopper for the homebound in her Amish community. But when Janna's niece, Meghan, comes to live with her family—part of a plan by Janna's sister to rid her daughter of her rebellious ways—Janna spends less time shopping and more time explaining Meghan's erratic behavior to local police officer Hiram "Troy" Troyer, who was raised Amish but left the faith after a fatal accident that killed his brother and also a brother of Janna's. Frequent interactions draw Janna and Troy together, rekindling an attraction they first experienced in their youth.

    What will become of their relationship? And will headstrong Meghan ever tame her ways?

    My Review:

    Topping the first novel in The Amish of Webster County was certainly a task - but Hilton managed to pull it off with a flourish! I didn't particularly care for the fact that the author bring into play the same elements as her last novel - Amish girl versus man with Amish roots. But it's part of the formula that makes the magic happen in these novels, so who am I to judge?

    I did enjoy that Hilton brings a completely different flavor to the series, by not serving us the traditional Amish dish. It's not every day that a woman like Janna gets to explain to a former Amishman who is now the law why her niece is getting into so much trouble. With Jenna's father being the bishop, anything can happen, and I was holding my breath throughout the entire novel. It is a beautiful love story that hooks you from the very first page, and like a lover, draws you until you are utterly and completely lost within...

    I could hardly set this book down! For a romantic at heart such as myself, this book was everything I want in a story. There is attraction, romance, secrets, guilt, forgiveness and a troubled teenage cousin constantly needing supervision. What more could you ask for?

    Janna and Troy are both such likeable characters. An Amish young woman and a formerly Amish young man, separated by the fact that he jumped the fence years earlier for reasons known only to him. When they meet up again years later, the attraction that was once there between them hums to life. But how can a relationship work between them? I just loved that the author has the attraction zinging between the main characters within the first few pages of the book and it just keeps growing throughout the chapters.

    This story had great twists and turns. It is book two in the Amish of Webster County series. I really enjoyed book one, Healing Love. But I have to say that I absolutely adored this book! What a great series. I look forward to reading the next book, Awakened Love.

    While Jenna Kauffman is doing the personal shopping for the homebound in her Amish community she thinks she recognizes the policeman as the boy she'd always hoped to marry and drops oranges all over the floor. Troy Troyer, better known to the Amish as Hiram Troyer, ran away as a teenager and knows he'll never return to the Amish, he would never be accepted back even if he tried to.

    Jenna is co-guardian, along with her parents, to her niece Meghan. Jenna's sister left the Amish also and now she can't handle Meghan so she sent her to live with Jenna and her parents. Well as Jenna leaves the store she's confronted by two police officers, one of which is 'Troy' Troyer. It seems Meghan hasn't even been in town two weeks and is already getting in trouble, as she continues with her shenanigans, Jenna and Troy seem to be thrown together a lot.

    Jenna discovers she is still interested in Troy and Troy seems to reciprocate those feelings. Things can't go any further though because he has a secret and can't bring himself to tell anyone, that's the end of it. As if his emotions aren't tearing him up enough he accidentally shoots Jenna's daed.

    What a great book! I hated to put this one down. How many times do we, as humans, do things and then regret them later and can't forgive ourselves? If we can't forgive ourselves how will anyone else forgive us, even if they are family or someone we love? We have to remember that all we have to do is ask God for forgiveness and then we need to forgive ourselves, we can do this with God's help if we just ask him.

    Needless to say, I'm starting the next book, "Awakened Love", as soon as I'm done writing this review. I would encourage you to get your hands on this series, you will really enjoy it.
