Summary

Detective Olivia Mast would rather run through gunfire than return to her former Amish community in Unity, Maine, where she killed her abusive husband in self-defense and witnessed her family's murder.   

After an Amish man is murdered, the community will not pursue justice or answer questions from the police, so she begrudgingly dons her old prayer kapp and heads to Unity to investigate the murder undercover.    

To make things even worse, her captain also orders her to protect the man she dated as a teen: Isaac Troyer, who was attacked on the night of the murder but cannot remember the incident.    

The handsome and quirky cabinet maker begins to fall for Olivia once again, unaware that she carries a 9mm under her skirt as she must fake her way into rejoining the Amish community to gain the people's trust.    

After another murder, some deadly pranks, and a kidnapping, Olivia realizes she needs Isaac's help most of all because of his personal ties to the suspect.    

Will Isaac be willing to break Amish rules to help her arrest the killer? Or will he be unable to forgive her for lying to the community about wanting to be Amish again... and for lying to him?

Secrets, Pain, Forgiveness, Redemption

First, I simply love Narrator Callie Beaulieu. I can't explain it, I just do. Next, phenomenal storyline. Can't wait to listen to a book about Ava. The cycle of domestic violence and how to break it, the importance of a life lived with YHWH, and the effects terrible secrets can have, especially in an isolated community are fully explored. I don't want to give away more than that. There is pain, forgiveness and redemption. Excellent!! It's worth the listen🥰

I know it's only a book...but NOT Amish life

This was an underdeveloped manuscript with flat characters and very little to keep a listener engaged. Writing somewhat immature. The "heroine" was weak, sappy, and a very bad police detective. She was a "victim" many times during her police work, and she was bested by the bad guy more times than not. Overall: predictable, weak characters, weak storyline, weak everything. Subject matter should have been studied more prior to writing, at least to give the book a dash of realism.

slow and boring narrator spoke to low

never have any problems with any other narrator being able to hear them but this one seems very low and I couldn't turn anything up any higher... story itself was boring at beginning and by 6 chapter It seemed like i heard same thing over and over not for me!!

One star is being generous

This has to be the one of the worst books ever. The story is not realistic (I won't go into detail in order to avoid plot give aways). The writing is like that of a sixth grade essay contest with all of the proper grammer and absolutely no slang. Waste of money and time.

Just ok

This book was perfectly ok. Not horrible, not great. I was not a fan of the narrator...I will probably try to avoid books that she has narrated. Since this book was about an Amish girl a hint of a pa Dutch accent would have been interesting. As it was I detected a hint of an accent, not sure where (Boston??) and it bothered me a bit. I would not recommend this book even though it wasn’t too bad. The main character is supposed to be a police detective but she came off as unsure of herself and a bit “bumbling” (tripping, falling, making noise when trying to be quiet) and it was a bit unbelievable. Every time she tripped into a shelf (or similar) and knocked noisy things to the ground as she was trying to be quiet I did an eye roll.....here we go again....

Completely unbelievable and absurd

Imagine the most inept police officer and continue on from there. The story was infuriating and exasperating. Don't waste your time.
