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?

My Take: I wasn't sure what to expect when I first started reading this book. It is a little bit suspense, romance, and Amish all rolled into one. This is not a totally Amish book. There are Amish characters and it is set in a town that has Amish but the story is really about the stranger who comes to town and the policewoman who just happens to be the niece to a trio of lovable Amish Women who run an Amish Inn. The mystery revolves around the stranger who's truck breaks down and finds himself and his young son staying at the Amish Inn that the three Amish women said they would only use if they felt the need arise. I will admit that I did have the identity of the stranger pretty much figured out before It was reveiled but I didn't have the murderer figured out till right before it was reveiled. I found this book very intriguing and it kept my attention so much so that my family had to repeat my name several times to get my attention. I would recommend this book for anyone who likes mystery, suspence and Amish books.
I received a review copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest opinion.
