Perfection, Amish with a bit of mystery and suspense thrown in. You would think that as a suspense lover that I would be thrilled, but I am just satisfied. Sounds rather silly, almost like describing food, but sometimes as a reviewer it feels like I eat, breath and sleep books. This book was a good story, the premise was good, and I generally love Serena's books. But some of the characters just didn't click for me. They were a bit stiff and you weren't sure about them. It is exciting to see a movie being made from the film. That being said the story was a good story, with a good plot and easily wins 4 stars from this reviewer.

The story: A mysterious outsider casts a long shadow on Ohio's Amish country. Policewoman Rachel Troyer has always looked after her three elderly Amish aunts, proprietors of a farmhouse inn near Sugarcreek, Ohio. The idyllic town is popular with tourists, who come to sample its famous Amish goods. But one thing is clear to Rachel --- Joe Matthews is no tourist. When the bearded stranger lands on her aunts' doorstep, begging shelter for himself and his young son, Rachel is suspicious.
Will she be able to uncover Joe's secrets despite her aunts' --- and her own --- growing affection for him?
