Rachel Weaver Mason returns to Deer Run when her mother in law passes away and leaves her home to Rachel and her nine year old daughter, Mandy. Rachel was raised Amish but fell in love and ran off to marry Ronnie Mason, an Englischer, against the wishes of her family and Ronnie's as well. Ronnie was killed in a wreck so mother and daughter have moved back to Deer Run for a new start and to turn the Mason home into a bed and breakfast. No one really welcomes them back but Rachel's fourteen year old brother, Benjamin. But Benjamin is involved in something that has him upset and Rachel is determined to find out. After a shaky start, Rachel connects with Ronnie's old friend Colin and he works with Rachel to figure what is going on with Benjamin. A neighbor, Meredith King, also welcomes Rachel back as they rekindle a friendship from twenty years old ago. Rachel, Meredith and a third friend, Lainey Colton spent the summer running around together and having fun. At the time Lainey was visiting her aunt, Rebecca, who lives a couple of houses down the street and hasn't returned to Deer Run since that summer.
This is another good suspenseful read by Marta Perry. Someone doesn't want Rachel's efforts to turn the house into a bed and breakfast to be a success. It is always interesting to see how the Amish and English worlds interact as we see Rachel trying to reconnect with her family and figure out what has Benjamin so afraid to talk about what is going.
