Amish Refuge

GIVEAWAY

GUISTI, DEBBY
AMISH REFUGE

Hidden in plain sight

Miriam Miller barely escapes the ruthless attacker that killed her mother and kidnapped her sister. Running deeper into the woods, she's running out of hope...until she falls into the arms of an unlikely bodyguard -- a peaceful Amish farmer. Something about Abram Zook inspires her trust, but even in bucolic Willkommen, Georgia, Miriam faces danger. Both from the men pursuing her and from her growing feelings for the caring -- though guarded -- widower who protects her. Because if she falls for Abram she'll have to embrace his Amish faith as her own -- or lose him. With each minute, her abductor creeps closer, pushing Miriam to an inevitable choice: stay and risk her heart...or leave and risk her life.

Amish Protectors: These heroes offer shelter from the storm

My Review:

This is one compulsive read! The gripping opening scene sets the tone for the entire story. Miriam is desperate. Hunted. Traumatized. My heart pounded just as hard as hers as she fled her menacing pursuer...and falls into the arms of a perplexed Amish farmer. The contrast between the peaceful Amish farm and the terror that lurks beyond its borders brings an edgy twist to the suspense. And so does the romance. And I'm super excited because this is the first in the Amish Protectors series and I have some suspicions about what's going to come next. Can't wait to see if I'm right.

  2. I haven't met a Giusti novel I didn't like yet & probably never will ;-) I've heard tell she was writing a new series & that makes me super excited. Love the cover, gives an ominous premise to the story without even opening the first page.

    1. Isn't it a fantastic cover? And I agree with you about Debby Giusti's books...but I'm used to her military romantic suspense so this is something new...and might just be my favourite of her stories so far. Good luck, Trixi.
