This is the third book in A Home Valley Amish Novel. It is the second one that I have read. I was not to impressed with the little I knew of Ella from Returning to Grace.
It is so easy to judge characters and real people with a little knowledge wrongly, like I did. I really grew to care more for Ella the more I got to know her and understand her better.
This novel was full of action and caring about others, and honesty on one side. Bad guys,traiters and murders on other side. Who do you trust when someone tries to kill you many times.
Alex Caldwell was making good money and then he found out his boss was selling secrets to China. He became a whistle blower, and agreed to testify. He did not want to go into the witness protection program so his lawyer hired a private security for him. When they tried to kill him he decided to go to the Feds.
They decided to put him in with the Amish as a cousin coming to visit.
Ella Lantz good friend Hannah was marring her brother Seth in a few days. So Ella was moving into Seth old home and going expand her business in the old house. While her new cousin Andrew was moved into her old room.
Andrew was really liking the simple life with the Lantz family, especially Ella.
Someone was stalking Ella footprints where all around her house and her' family house.
Then she was in a hit and run accident. Then a threat on her door.
After a failed kidnapped attempt Andrew, Ella and her grandmother run off and don't tell anyone in authority where they were going.
I really liked the grandmother. How the Amish did take Andrew in and welcomed him.
I liked how the three friends had problems and for awhile lost contact but even though they each made different choices they cared for each other still.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest review from Netgalley.
