Libby Morgan never wanted to return to Lancaster County. She'd made her own life in the city as a news photographer, leaving the slow pace of Amish country behind. She'd left love behind, too, when she fled the old-fashioned ways of Adam Byler. But when a friend in trouble beckons, Libby knows she has no choice. What she doesn't know is that somethi ...more

Danger in Plain Sight, by Marta Perry, b-plus, narrated by Therese Plummer, produced by Harlequin Enterprises, downloaded from

Had I looked before buying to find out this was a harlequin book, I probably wouldn’t have bought it as I’m not really into romances, but despite the dominant theme of
Desperation to get Sheriff Adam Tyler and returned-home Libby Morgan to realize they love each other, there is a fairly good mystery. Libby returns back to the Amish populated Lancaster County

"In the third book of her Amish suspense series, Perry brings us back to Lancaster County. She completely draws the reader into the world of the Amish with their quiet ways and their modern "Englischer" neighbors. Perry's strong writing, along with loads of suspense, will keep you turning the pages." Rt Book Review, rated 4 stars
Well, I had this one figured out a little too early, but I did enjoy the characters. I wish the romance would have been stronger.
4 STARS Danger In Plain Sight is good story. Has a mystery,crime,romance,Amish & English and two friends from different beliefs liking and respecting of each other. No sex scenes. Libby came home for her brother's wedding. She has not told her mom that she quit her job in San francisco. She is not sure what she will do now. Libby is busy taking the photos of her brothers reception when she sees Adam get a phone call. Adam tells her that Esther her best friend was in a hit and run accident an ...more
I was lucky enough to win this book through the Goodreads giveaway on May 29 and finished it on May 30. This book takes place in the quiet Amish community of Spring Township, which turned out to be not so quiet. I was captivated from the beginning when someone deliberately crashed into an Amish buggy with their car. Libby Morgan had grown up among the Amish and even spoke their dialect but she had fled to San Francisco for a job, leaving behind her family, her best friend Esther Zook and Adam By ...more
My personal favorite of the three titles in this series. I have always had a soft spot for police and fire fighters and this title focuses on the tough, no-nonsense police chief Adam Byler....and his surprising background.
The son of the town alcoholics, Adam suffered from abuse and neglect - leading him to be informally "adopted" by Geneva Morgan and her late husband Blake. Adam and Trey grew up best friends and played high school football together. The Morgan family attended the games to cheer

“Danger in Plain Sight” by Marta Perry was a wonderful Amish mystery. I enjoy Amish stories anyway and this was a double treat because it was also a suspenseful story. I really liked all of the main characters in the novel; they were so likable. I was into the story from the first paragraph. It was a great lead in and I was hooked. Libby Morgan is in town for her brother’s wedding and to possible move back home because she quit her job. Her dear Amish friend Esther has written that she needs to ...more
2-2.5 stars. Billed as a romantic suspense I found this book to be lacking in both. The romance was tame and the suspense was not there at all for me. I was curious to see what would happen but the lack of suspense and too little romance means I won't try this author again. It also featured this wonderful grammatical error: "But you need to get feeling better first." Yikes. In a nutshell disappointing.
Very Engaging Mystery/Suspense/Romance Story.
Generally I am not much for reading mysteries,but as an avid reader of Amish fiction,the synopsis of this book tempted me to try it,especially since I recently finished an excellent series in the same vein,by another author.[The Secrets of Crittenden County].

I must say that I am getting quite pleasantly hooked on these!Danger In Plain Sight is very well written,and has excellent character development.I cared about the characters,and I was totally surp

The third in the Amish Suspense series by Marta Perry. Libby Morgan left home hoping to never go back, mostly she was running from Adam Byler, the love of her life (a relationship that never happened, but she still uses him as the measuring stick for all other suitors). Libby does return home for two reasons, her brother is getting married and her dear friend Esther Zook, an Amish woman, has been writing worrisome letters. Libby gets in late with just enough time to get settled and participate i ...more
This book was excellent! I loved it as much as the first two and I am hoping there will be a fourth!

Each character is very well written. Marta certainly had a very good was of introducing each member of the Morgan family into the series through out the three books. I loved how they all connected and stuck together no matter what.

I am always trying my hardest when reading these books to see if I can solve the case before I get to end. I admire each character and their strengths. Libby is a strong
It is so refreshing to read a book and not know the entire ending. Great suspense and great characters made this an awesome read.
It was a good book to end the series with. It was definitely hard to figure out exactly who did what, but I enjoyed it.

Another Amish Mystery

Really enjoy this series. The romance part of the story is always predictable but the mystery keeps you turning the pages to the very end.
Sandy Duke
This was a page-turner. I was sucked in from the Prologue.
Its a little slow at first but a few pages in and it captures you and holds attention well. I love the balance of mystery and romance.
No review--I just enjoyed this book very much.
I am a new fan of Marta Perry, read all 4 books in the Brotherhood of the Raven series (or Amish Suspense), this one ended the series well unless there is a future book). I didn't like Libby for most of the book; while I admired her courage standing by her friend, she showed incredible stupidity at times. I loved Adam, Geneva, Link and Marisa, I do wish there was at least one more book, to give Geneva a second chance at love.
I love her books. They are quick reads.
This is the third book in this seires and I've read them all(as well as loved them all)This is a little bit different from the first two,as I didn't think Adam was going to come around at all.But at the eleventh hour he does,that was a bit nerve racking,but at least it all ended well. I look foward to the next book by Marta Perry.She is now among one of my favorite authors!
I really enjoyed this book, and I am a fan of Marta Perry and Amish Christian fiction in particular. I loved the main character, loved how she put others first and didn't give up on her friend. I loved her family and how they were able to integrate into the Amish community where they lived. Excellent and suspenseful, I recommend this book with 5 stars.
Didn't realize this was a romantic mystery when I picked it up. Generally don't read the former. It was okay has a whole. The mystery and Amish end of the book was good and kept you guess as to how all the pieces would fit together. Romantic part was okay, I guess, but sometimes distracted from what I would have considered the real story.

Marta Perry sent me this book in a giveaway. It is not the typical type of book I read but I really enjoyed it. I have gotten into the habit of reading really intense books but I found this one was a nice change of pace, it had mystery and a bit of romance. I am looking forward to ready the other "In Plain Sight" books. :)

This is the third book in Marta Perry's Amish suspense series. This is a great series. I highly recommend it, especially if you are a fan of Amish fiction.

This was my first book by Marta Perry set in Amish country and I enjoyed the details that gave insight into a different way of life. The suspense kept me turning the pages and I love when I'm surprised by the villain.
I really liked this book...I am finding I like the way these stories pull you in and you feeel like you are right there and it kept me guessing until the end... Loved it!
Judy Aulik
Enjoyable series: consistently readable. This is Amish fiction for those that don't care for the oft-heavyhanded Christian messages in bonnet romances.
