Hiding in Plain Sight by Amy Wallace (Review)

  • Publisher: Harvest House Publishers (April 1, 2012)

  • ISBN-13: 978-0736947312


  • About the book:

    In a quiet town with a thriving Mennonite community, police officer Ashley Walters finds her threadbare faith and way of life challenged by the Plain people whose simple dress and welcoming manner open her eyes to a God she left behind. Peace eludes Ashley until she realizes the answers she seeks aren't found in starting over but in returning to the simple truth that it's God who overcomes the world, not her.

    Written for women who desire action-packed suspense, romance, and an escape into the peaceful world of the Mennonites, Hiding in Plain Sight delves into the painful struggle to fit in and the search for peace that so often eludes our fast-paced lives.


    My Review:

    This is the first book in the Place of Refuge series set in  Montezuma, Georgia. I really enjoyed reading this book. Ashley was an easy character to root for and it was nice to learn more about the Mennonite community. It is a contemporary Christian book with suspense, romance, and a little mystery too which is my favorite kind. The author did a good job creating characters and plot line that were interesting and unique. The mystery revolves mostly around the Yoder farm and accidents that keep occurring out there and the developers wanting to add to the town. Also involved is Patrick, a psychologist, and Jonathan ,a Mennonite man, which turns into a love triangle with Ashley. Along the way important spiritual lessons like forgiveness, and trust in God are dealt with without being preachy. It held my attention from start to finish. I can't wait for the next book in the series. Highly Recommended! :)
