I’ve always been interested in the Amish, and Perry gives us an in-depth look into the Amish lifestyle through her fantastic novels, while also adding mystery and intrigue. This is a very quick, compelling story concerning Leah as she’s accused of stealing a very expensive ring from one of the women she works for. It’s an intense novella and I really enjoyed the authenticity Perry provides through her research of the Amish lifestyle. While not a murder mystery like the other novels in the Amish ...more
My advice: read this before Murder in Plain Sight, as this happens before that one, chronologically. But if you read them out of order, you're not going to completely lost :)

This was about 61 pages long, fast read usually for me, but I found myself taking my time, truly enjoying this little story. I really love Amish fiction, I find them fascinating and love learning about them. They are really just like us, but with subtle differences. Their faith is so strong, you have to admire that and that

The book was okay but not exactly what I expected not as good as some others I've read by the same author
Extra 1/2 star.
This book had the least believable romance out of the series. They are constantly suspicious of one another up to even three-quarters of the way through the book when the Morgan family essentially forces a come-to-Jesus meeting to bring all their information together.

Not to mention the short period of time this story takes places over; they STILL throw the love word around like they weren't a woman who is traumatized by her mother's abandonment and a former soldier with PTSD/survivor's guilt.

I am so glad that I found Marta Perry's books. This was a novella that was a perfect sit down and read the entire story at one time kind of read. It was very enjoyable with a little mystery, suspense and romance. An all around good read!
This was a great novella that she could have developed into a complete novel. I just like reading books that carry on with characters from previous stories!

This was more like a short story. I always enjoy Marta Perry books. This only takes a couple of hours to read - enjoyable, but short!
Love Marta Perry's books and this one was great as well.
