Libby Morgan never wanted to return to Lancaster County. She'd made her own life in the city as a news photographer, leaving the slow pace of Amish country behind. She'd left love behind, too, when she fled the old-fashioned ways of Adam Byler. But when a friend in trouble beckons, Libby knows she has no choice. What she doesn't know is that something sinister awaits her.
For Adam Byler, the traditional ways convey safety and order. As police chief of Springville, the former marine strives to keep the peace between the Amish and their modern "Englischer" neighbors - and he will not allow Libby's beauty to distract him from his duties. But when an innocent woman is attacked, they'll confront a danger more threatening than their growing passion.

Had I looked before buying to find out this was a harlequin book, I probably wouldn’t have bought it as I’m not really into romances, but despite the dominant theme of
Desperation to get Sheriff Adam Tyler and returned-home Libby Morgan to realize they love each other, there is a fairly good mystery. Libby returns back to the Amish populated Lancaster County in Pennsylvania when her best friend sends her increasingly alarmed letters about something going on at home. Also Libby’s brother is getting married. So she comes home for the wedding, and during the festivities after the wedding, Sheriff Tyler is notified that Libby’s best friend, an Amish woman, Esther, has been hit in her buggy by a car which left the scene, and when it’s unclear Esther will survive, Libby insists on going to the hospital with Adam. It appears that the accident may not have been one and that someone might have been trying to kill Esther. Libby and Adam start investigating to try to find out the truth. At first they are just worried about keeping Esther safe while her health improves, but soon they realize that they are in danger as well. A pretty good book involving glimpses of the Amish culture, but Linda Castillo’s Katy Burkholder series is better.
Love the narrator and the series was a good one.
Love Amish theme books
Love her narrations.
