Plain Threats by Alison Stone - Review

Rebecca Fisher's life was turned upside down when her husband was accused of murder and died in prison. Now, more than a year later, someone is reminding the Amish widow that all hasn't been forgiven. But Rebecca isn't about to pay for the sins of someone else's past. So when the threats escalate and her rebellious stepson starts keeping secrets, Rebecca turns to former army ranger Jake Burke for help. She knows the Englisher is an honorable man, but being around him rattles her traditional community. Before long, Rebecca senses Jake is the only person she can trust with her safety...and wit her fragile heat.

For me, I had a hard time getting into this book, I think because there was talk about drugs. I know it is a part of our lives and we all have, or know, someone close that has a problem with them. Putting that aside I kept reading and was soon interested in what the ending would be. A good read and the mystery is there!

1) The Lonely Deacon
Living a loveless life was easy for Mark... until he met Miriam.

42-year-old Deacon Mark Miller was living a good but lonely life as the well-respected deacon of his Sugarcreek community. Being unmarried had always allowed him to focus on his work, and for 12 years, that had been enough. But through an unexpected turn of events, two completely different women are about to enter into his life, and for better or for worse, they will change his life forever.

Experience the romance, the hard decision-making, and the life of an Amish deacon in The Lonely Deacon - A Simple Amish Romance,and find out if Mark will notice true love when he sees it, or if he's destined to remain as the lonely deacon.

2) Blind Sight
How do you move forward after an accident destroys your entire life?

Four years after the accident that left Beth Price blind, she has finally been able to find peace in her life. But, when Jeremy Adler, the boy who helped cause the accident returns to Sugarcreek after almost four years, Beth's ability to forgive and move forward is put to the test.

Live the romance, the heartache, and life through the eyes of a blind Amish girl in Blind Sight - A Simple Amish Romance, and find out if Beth and Jeremy are meant to be, or if the pain of the past is too much to allow them to move forward.

3) The Sugarcreek Fishing Club
When you've been alone your entire life, how do you find love?

Elizabeth Troyer is content with her life? She fishes alone, she reads alone, and she has her family to rely on. But on her 21st birthday, she's thrust into joining a club for her rumspringa. She decides to join the Sugarcreek Fishing Club - a club filled with all boys, whose members seem bent on not letting her join, with the exception of their leader: Mark Fisher, who is drawn to Elizabeth.

Can Elizabeth overcome the odds of being accepted by an all-boys club? Will her community accept her fishing alone with boys? And will anything develop between her and Mark along the way? Experience the joy of the Sugarcreek Fishing Club, and see where Elizabeth's journey takes her!

I found all three of these stories very enjoyable and with a twist from the normal Amish stories. When I picked this set to read I had not read anything by any of the authors, I love it when I find new authors to follow. I can say that I would recommend this set of books to those that enjoy reading Amish stories.

Plain Pursuit by Alison Stone - Review

When her brother is killed in a small Amish town, Anna Quinn discovers she's an unwelcome outsider. But the FBI agent investigating the case is right at home--because Eli Miller was born and raised in Apple Creek's Plain community. Eli left his Amish faith behind long ago, but his heart is rooted in a local cold case he can't forget--a mystery with strange connections to Anna's loss. Desperate to uncover the truth, Anna and Eli are faced with stony silences and secrets...secrets that someone wants to keep buried in the past.

What a heart wrenching story Alison is telling here. The things a brother will put himself through for a sister are visible here. By the end, I was getting more and more anxious, and in more fear for Anna, that I wasn't able to put the book down until I found out what happened. Oh yes, a must read for mystery and/or Amish readers.

A Dark Amish Night by Jenny Moews - Review

(copied from
Hannah's whole world collapses when her husband, Eric, is found dead with her young son inside their buggy nearby. Sheriff Quinn Ramsey searches for a killer in a town full of secrets and lies while he deals with his own dark past. A budding romance threatens to consume and destroy both their lives. Can Quinn find Eric's killer before Hannah is cast out of the only community she has ever known and save her son before the killer strikes again? Find out in this thrill-ride mystery romance.

Jenny is a new author, not only for me but I think this is her first book as I can't find anything else she's written. With that being said, I was really impressed with this book. It was a good mystery with a lot of twists, turns and secrets. I do hope to see some more books written by her. My only problem, and I don't blame this all on the author, are the errors you have to overlook. Like misspellings, added words, etc. This is not the only e-book I've had this problem with so I am blaming it on the auto-correct as far as spelling and grammar go. The story was great though!

Corsets and Cuffs by Shanna Hatfield - Review of the third book in the Baker City Brides series

(copied from

Sheriff Tully Barrett never knew trouble had such a pretty face.
Brianna Dumont never knew the law could be so handsome and hardheaded.
Pampered and privileged, Brianna Dumont escapes the life she's always known in an effort to clear her father's good name. She arrives in Baker City, Oregon, intent on selling her father's shares in a mine. Only the mine is a bust, her father's partner is a crusty ol' coot who hates women, and the sheriff in town is determined to keep her behind bars.

With good friends around him, a small ranch of his own, and a fulfilling job as sheriff, Tully Barrett loves his life. Then an exasperating woman shows up, making demands and driving him crazy. No matter how hard he tries to ignore her brains and beauty, she works her way under his skin.

Corsets and Cuffs captures the fun-loving banter of two strong-willed characters determined not to fall in love in this sweet historical romance.

Oh my get out the tissues! I was laughing so hard at one point the tears were gathering in my eyes and I had a hard time reading what "Fred" did. Oh, and then waiting for the Sheriff to find out, hahaha. I know I say this each time but I love Shanna's books, this is the funniest one so far I think. There is not much more to be said than if you have not read any of her books, PLEASE, keep her in mind when you are looking for a new author. I have enjoyed every one of her books that I've read so far and plan to read many more.
