Rachel Troyer, lives in the middle of Amish country.  She is not Amish, but is related to many of the Amish, her father having left the faith.  After she orphaned at eleven years old, three of her Amish aunts had raised her.  Now grown and a police officer in the small town of Sugarcreek Ohio, , Rachel's goal is to take care of her elderly aunts.  Problem is, they are not cooperating with her plan.  They run an Inn, bed and breakfast style place and do not understand why Rachel insists they stop taking in guests.
After an accident leaves Aunt Bertha injured, Rachel insists no more guests, and they agree with the provision that they are allowed to help anyone they feel they need to help.  They are strong believers in the verse about helping "angels" unaware.
Enter the angels, well not literal angels but a young man and his little boy, who desperately seem to need the help of the aunts.  They allow him to stay in one of the cabins, much to Rachel's disapproval, and he makes himself of so much use, they ask him to stay on and work for them.
Rachel is upset, something is not right with this man, and she intends to get to the bottom of it.  Her investigation turns up nothing and at the urging of others she finds herself liking "Joe" and his son Bobby.  When she finally figures out who Joe really is, she knows her world is going to be turned upside down, and to make matters worse she has fallen hard for Joe.
This was one of my absolute favorite books I have ever read.  I love the Love Finds You series and to combine it with an Amish story was like the frosting on a cake.  Delicious!!  347 pages $12.99 US 5 stars.
