3.5 stars

As the second book of this series, it doesn't give much input of the previous book (which is a good thing if you don't read them in order), and it can pretty much stand alone. No cliffhangers, no wondering what will happen next, except if you are curious by nature and want to know what the story is behind Caroline, the youngest sister who gets to be the center of the third book. That's what happened to me. Also, I wanted to know if the two main characters in this one will stay together

I decided to review these together since it is a series. However, I believe it would be okay to read them separately or out of order. I believe you can understand more of the back story if you read them in order, but I think they could easily be read on their own also and still be enjoyable.

Back in high school, I remember a librarian taking me around the library trying to help me find books I was interested in. I really hated reading when I was younger. I just couldn’t seem to find anything I li

This is book 2 of the Three Sisters Inn trilogy; it picks up 7 months later from the first book, Hide in Plain Site.
Rachel Hampton runs a bed and breakfast in the heart of Amish country with her grandmother. She is recovered physically from the hit and run accident that nearly took her life months ago, but is still wary; was it really an accident?

She befriends a guest at the inn, Tyler Dunn, who has inherited the neglected property next to the inn, after his mother's death. His grandfather was m

I discovered Marta Perry through a free Kindle fact, the first book in this series.

A Christmas to Die For, is the 2nd book in the series, and follows Rachel, the middle sister. This book did not disappoint with the mystery surrounding Rachel's accident and the death of a neighbor 20 years ago. It is very quick read, and a touch of romance to go with the mystery.

The only disappointment (which is NOT a reflection of the author or amazon...since I received this book through a paperback s

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.

Three Sisters Inn
Book 2

This book covered the story of the second sister. Her story actually started in the first book, I believe, when she's involved in a hit-and-run. The mystery was never solved. Now someone is trying to harm her again along with her new bed and breakfast guest, Tyler Dunn. Tyler has come back to get answers surrounding his grandfather's death, and Rachel's family may very well be involved!

I figured some of the things out - just a bit too obvious, but the author threw in some

I really enjoyed the mystery parts of this novel. There were hints dropped throughout the book, but I think it would be very hard to put the entire puzzle together with the who and the why of 'whodunnit'. I had my suspicions, but they did not play out how I suspected they would.
That said, the romance between Rachel and Tyler felt a little forced. I think I would have liked to see more character growth from both of them along with a slower road to romance . . . for them to become actual FRIENDS f

This is the second book in the The Sisters Inn series. I got the first one free, and I actually liked it a little better. The dialog in this book between Rachel and Tyler seemed forced and not very realistic. The story was interesting and I was a little surprised at the end. I will probably read the third book, just to see how it all plays out. Overall, I thought this book was good but not great.

This is the second book of a trilogy. The first one was very entertaining, and this follows in the same vein. These are Christian/mystery/romance novels and make what I call a "good light read." That means it's not a book that will teach you about a new culture, people, country, or how to manage a's just there for you to enjoy a story without a lot of thought. The characters are fairly believable and the so is the story.

I enjoyed this second book and the storyline was better than the first. Poor Rachel having just recovered from a previous "accident" when more things start to happen around and to her. Tyler comes to handle his Grandfather's estate, next to the Three Sisters Inn and bonds with Rachel as they both learn their family histories.
This book seemed a lot like book 1 in the series just had different characters, while this story is set in Amish country, there are very few Amish scenes or Amish people in the series so if you think this is like most Amish fiction it is not. I did however enjoy the story. It is a really good suspence story and I can't wait to read book 3 to meet sister 3.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series so I was majorly bummed that I didn't find this book as enjoyable. It was an okay read with moments of romance and suspense interspersed but it was no where as good as the first in this series. It also felt shorter than the first. I will probably read the next in this series but my expectations have definitely been lowered.

I was disapointed in this book. I thought it was going to be all about the Amish. But it was about them drivng cars and lights in their houses. It was hard trying to find out who was up to no good. So it did have it's good points!

This book was just as good as her first. Enjoyed the relationship between characters and the plot was excellent. It kept me on the edge guessing who was doing what, thought I had it figured out and wow what a twist! Excellent writing Marta Perry on the the next.

Sit and enjoy the reading. If you're planing a long flight you could read all the book in that flight. The story is good for any age because it doesn't have curses or bad words or sex or anything scary but this is not a Xmas story.

I could have knocked some sense into the two main characters during various parts of the book, but it wasn't bad otherwise. I figured out the who-did-it fairly quickly, but the bit about the father at the end threw me - I was not expecting that!

A Great Read

I gave this book a five star because it was very good. It kept my interest all the way to the end. I didn't figure out who had done the crimes until very close till the end. The attraction between the characters was so good and real. A really great book.

This was a charming little book to read and yet it had that mystery element to it and kept me
turning the pages. It's an exciting blend of romance and suspense. Although this book belongs with a
series it could easily be read as a stand alone. It was a very easy, clean read. I'd recommend it.

It was suspenseful and interesting at every page. Great writing. I would call it an Amish mystery. A real page turner

A nice story with a Christmas setting. The mystery was slow and not nearly as entertaining as the first book, but the conclusion was wrapped it up in a more pleasing way. The romance was a flop.

Good sorry line

It kept me coming back to see what happens next. But strange that chapter breaks were in the wrong place.

This is a really good romantic suspense that takes place at Christmas. I enjoyed it very much and think that you will too.

I'm pretty sure this book is the same as the first book in the series with some names changed. It was good the first time around. I want something new now.
