In the shadows of a graveyard, a SHOT rings out…
Hannah Esh fled the Home Valley Amish community with a broken heart, throwing herself into her worldly dreams of a singing career instead. But as much as she tries to run from her past, something keeps pulling her back. On a whim, she brings four worldly friends to the Amish graveyard near her family’s home for a midnight party on Halloween. But when shots are fired and one of her friends is killed, Hannah is pulled back into the world of her past.
The investigation into the shooting uncovers deep-buried secrets that shock the peaceful Amish village to its core. Determined to prove her value to the community she left behind, Hannah attempts to bridge two cultures, working closely with both handsome, arrogant FBI agent Linc Armstrong and her former betrothed, Seth Lantz, now widowed with a young daughter.
Caught between Seth and Linc, between old and new, Amish and worldly, Hannah must choose her future. Unless a killer, bent on secrecy, chooses it for her.
My Comments: This book is a good mix of Amish fiction and mystery – two of my favorites. I enjoyed this book, it kept me engaged throughout. This book brought out that there are many secrets in this type environment. Life is not all perfect and rosy as it might seem in the Amish community. In that respect this book is somewhat more believable than the perfect life depicted in other books of the Amish fiction genre. This book even portrayed the bishop than less than perfect. There are times when I want a good excuse from real life into fantasy. Other times I find strength from reading about real people with real problems. This book fit the second category.
