Synopsis: She couldn’t turn her back on her family in their time of need.
So when her sister was injured, financial expert Andrea Hampton traded the big city for Amish country to help turn her grandmother’s house into an inn.
But life with the Plain People took a treacherous turn when a string of accidents and pranks threatened her family. Someone didn’t want the secrets the old house harbored to come to light. Trusting anyone— even the handsome carpenter who seemed so genuine—was a battle for Andrea, but her life depended on her ability to find the truth.

So I’m gonna do a little something different, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret. I am a believer but I wasn’t always. As a teenager I did not believe, in fact I absolutely hated the faith, for reasons we are not gonna go into, suffice it to say, everybody’s got a story right? At any rate, it took me a long time to come to terms with my faith and it wasn’t until I became pregnant with my daughter in my late twenties that I realized I did in fact believe in god. I’ve always been a casual observer, going to church once a month maaaaybe. But recently, as my daughter has become more involved with the church I have as well. I have been going more often and I like it. I felt I needed to let you know because this book is a christian romance and I have nevr read one before.
I don’t generally read Christian based books because while I am a believer, the faith still is kind of uncomfortable for me, even after all these years. Too many chefs in the kitchen and I already know how to cook thank you very much.
This book really spoke to me in that aspect because it wasn’t on every page or being thrust in my face. It was very casual and understated. It wasn’t the main focus; it was just like a hint of it. On the edge of your peripheral. As someone who is a casual observer I really liked that. A lot.
There were a lot of poignant moments in the book between the two MC’s that really spoke on a deeper level. The romance was very minimal, PG rated. Totally appropriate for 14+. It was more about coming together as a family and finding out who you are as a person and where you stand in the world. And I really liked that. I think that the underlying suspense in the book is what drew me in to begin with. Then all the layers of their self-discovery and going on this path together really brought it all together. I think I will read more.
It’s interesting to note how books can influence you in so many ways with regards to your lifestyle and your faith. I like what this book brought out on me.
