Hide In Plain Sight (The Three Sisters Inn #1)
"Please God, if you're listening, keep Rachel safe." She couldn't turn her back on her family in their time of need. So when her sister was injured, financial expert Andrea Hampton traded the big city for Amish country to help turn her grandmother's house into an inn. But life with the Plain People took a treacherous turn when a string of accidents and pranks threatened he...more
Also, I wasn't a fan of the theme running throughout the novel: it's contrary to a life well-lived for God to be ambitious about your career. Cal, the love interest, is a former-attorney-turned-carpenter. Andrea, the main character, is an up-and-coming financial guru who's job g...more
I enjoyed the book. I probably wouldn't have picked it up if it had been properly filed in a religious category. And while I get that religion plays a center role in the Amish Country side, the energy spent in this book having the characters commune with God and Finding their way back to Him could have been better spent on character development.
This book also wasn't terribly long. Simply expanding the book with character development wouldn't have hurt eit...more
The religious faith aspect of this book was much more subtlely done, to my delight. The setting is the heart of Lancaster County, PA (Amish coun...more
I must admit that, from the beginning (and finding out that it was a LoveInspired book), I wasn't expecting much. Of course, since it was recommended to me, I was expecting it to be readable. The end result was rather surprising.
The plot was a typical sabotage-and-prowler type. It's Nancy Drew-esque and...more

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...more
So the main character comes to Amish country, Pennsylvania, because her sister has been in a car accident. But as soon as she meets the Main Hunk, she has some sort of freaking lust-inspired, career-ending, life-changing epiphany and, even tho...more
It's pretty standard Harlequin fare, with a bit of the faith theme thrown in and a fair bit of myst...more
This book takes place in Amish Pennsylvania. You have Andrea Hampton the financial expert from the big city looking to get her promotion at the company she works for. She is called home becaus...more
Hide In Plain Sight was more of a simple mystery than anything else, in my opinion. While it is marketed on the cover as a "Love Inspired Mystery" and "Romance" book, I did not find a whole lot of love and romance going on. Sure, there were two characters who found each other attractive, but lots of books have charact...more

I primarly downloaded the book because I'm from Pennsylvania and was curious about how the author treated the Amish. I've read other books involving Amish and Mennonite where I found the treatment of the Penn...more
For mystery readers, you kind of know off the bat who the villain is, but the author does a good job of confusing you and throwing wrenches in your assumptions.
The ending was unexpected and satisfying and makes you want to learn more about the rest...more
I think I enjoyed this book in large part because of the religious and family unity aspects of the story. The notion of a family and a community banding together to help each other in the midst of trials gave the story a feel-good aspect that I found to be refreshing.
Andrea is a character that I started to like almost immediately. The contemplation she has between her job and commitments towards her family is something that we can all completely relate too. Her relation with Grams, Rachel, Cal and Uncle Nick is in...more
Marta and her husband live in a centuries-old farmhouse in a quiet central Pennsylvania v...more
