About this book:

  Eight years ago, a drifter destroyed Becca Miller's ties to her Amish community and murdered her family.

My personal Rating-
Well, that was intense! I mostly enjoyed this Love Inspired Suspense book, but the details on the murder and how they happened was right on the boarder-line of my maximum of reading about blood and such, though. I did really like Becca and thought she was an awesome heroine; Colby was a sweet hero. I do wish we could have seen more of his family though. The falling in love happened pretty quick, which was a downfall, in my opinion. It doesn’t necessarily paint the Amish in the best light, but suspense wise it was pretty decent.

See y’all on Friday with a new review!
