Publisher's Summary

Did a sweet-faced Amish teenager brutally murder a young woman? To save her career, big-city lawyer Jessica Langdon is determined to defend him against the community's bitter and even violent outrage. Yet without an understanding of Amish culture, Jessica must rely on arrogant businessman Trey Morgan, who has ties to the Amish community and believes in the boy's guilt.

Jessica has threats coming from all sides: a local fanatic, stirred up by the biased publicity of the case; the dead girl's boyfriend; even from the person she's learned to trust the most, Trey Morgan. But just when Jessica fears she's placed her trust in the wrong man, Trey saves her life. And now they must both reach into a dangerous past to protect everyone's future, including their own.

Fantastic story

I really loved the story. The romance angle was odd to put it lightly. More like an obsessive stalker on one side and a "strong" woman who falls deeply in love in the matter of maybe a week on the other. If there has to be romance, I wish it was more believable. The narrator should probably be coached on the pronounciation of common, simple foreign language words. Otherwise she did very well! I'm still not sure why the Amish in stories are made to sound like visitors from a foreign country. Especially Amish in Lancaster do not have such extreme accents. They are also not as naive as portrayed in this story. They are people like anyone else. I do love the story though and the characters were lovable!

Nice story, but not "steamy"

This was a good story. It was a murder story and accurate info about the Amish culture, however I purchased it as a "Romance" package choice and it was just a hint here and there of feelings between characters. Not enough for a steamy build up and no sex scenes. More of a murder mystery with two people attracted to each other. Good storyline and moved along well, okay narration, just not really in the genre category it is presented to be.

A pretty good story.

I liked the idea of an Amish mystery and love story all in one. I do not know much about this group of people. There were some inconsistencies . I can't picture a leader of the Amish community driving a modern pick up truck, nor getting mixed up with an English lawyer. It will be interesting to see what the next book does with this couple.

Great story!

This was a great story and the narrator performed very well. The twists kept my attention. Can't wait to hear the next book in the series. I like that the same narrator will continue to tell another story from one of my favorite authors!
