About the book
Shelley Shepard Gray’s latest novel of suspense in her Amish of Hart County series, an EMT falls for a woman with ties to an Amish community where people are dying similar, suspicious deaths.
Sadie Detweiler never imagined she’d move to Kentucky, yet here she is: a pregnant, unmarried Amish girl banished by unforgiving parents to live with kin she barely knows. The men are gruff and her cousins are secretive. Worst of all, elderly matriarch Verba becomes mysteriously ill shortly after Sadie moves in. When EMT Noah Freeman arrives, Sadie immediately notices he’s unlike any other Amish man she’s met. Noah is warm, confident, and has an easy way with practically everyone in the community, both Amish and English. Though Sadie is drawn to him, she has little hope he will reciprocate her feelings once he learns she’s with child.
Noah can’t understand how a girl as sweet and lovely as Sadie ended up sleeping on a cot in Verba Stauffer’s kitchen. He also senses Sadie is terrified of something. Concerned, he checks up on her. Eventually they strike up a friendship and soon their attraction is undeniable. When Verba later dies at the hospital and her death is followed by two others, Noah’s boss wants him to dig around the Amish community for clues. He agrees—for Sadie’s sake—because only the truth will keep her safe and by his side.
And I thought
This has been a great series to read. I have had the chance to read each title and I have to say each one was better than the previous.
And, this one was the best.
The story/plot kept me interested and turning the pages. I was
finished in just a few hours.
It really didn't take me long at all to figure it out but that didn't keep me from enjoying this great read.
I think what I liked the best is a couple of the characters from previous books made cameo appearances. I liked that and it brought their stories back to my memory.
Gray does a great job of bringing some interesting topics to a place,locale and group of people that you wouldn't expect.
No one really expects stalking, abuse, murder and things of that nature to happen around a community much less around an
The romance is always sweet and clean making this book and all the previous ones suitable for any audience. Parents might be cautious though because some of the topics in the previous books and actually this one too (Sadie is pregnant out of wedlock) might be too adult for younger readers.
I enjoyed this series and look forward to reading more books by
Shelley Shepard Gray.

If your a regular visitor to my blog you'll notice ocassionally
I share my thoughts on the cover of the book I am reviewing.
As with my reviews my thoughts on the covers are honest. I share
what feelings I had when reading and how and if the cover of the book caught my attention.
What has caught my attention about all the books in this series
with the exception of The Gift is that they all look the same.
If I was considering purchasing any of these books I would really have to think about it.
I know sometimes I'll grab a book just based on the cover. Especially if it is an author I know.
But with this series I would wonder have I read this one before?
To me the covers are so close to the same that it may be confusing.
With that said. I did love this series. And I really enjoyed each book.
Don't judge a book by it's cover.
Check them out!
