    1. Very good story. When Rebecca finds evidence linking her ex-husband to a crime, she takes it, thinking only to protect her son from the knowledge of his father's crimes. It also serves as an incentive to prevent him from fighting her for custody. When two attempts are made on her life along with threats against her son, she takes Matthew and heads to her Amish relatives in Missouri. One of the first people she encounters is Daniel, the county sheriff.Daniel was raised Amish but left to pursue a [...]

    2. With this story we are transplanted from San Francisco to the back hills of Missouri, from a hustle and bustle city to a plain and quiet way of life in Missouri.This is a mystery that starts on page one and doesn’t end basically until the last page is turned. What a surprise you are in store for how the evil is captured, I loved it, and so unexpected.We have a woman on the run, basically for her life, and she is traveling with her darling six-year-old son. Now I could see why her ex husband wa [...]

    3. Who are Rebecca and Matthew? Who is Steven Stowe, or for that matter Ray Estevez? Who is Tim? What is G, G, & S? Who is Robert? When Rebecca finds something she is not meant to see, what happens? Who is she under threat from? Why? Will we ever truly find out what is going on, who is behind it, and why? When she gets off the bus with someone, who is one of the first people to see her? Who is Daniel? It was fun watching this game of hide and seek in this Amish based story. Gave it an air that [...]

    4. A San Francisco wife and mother, with Amish roots, has to flee back to her upbringing in Missouri when the husband she wants to divorce turns dangerous. But is this the life she wants for her little boy? Farming or carpentry and finishing school at 16? More, can she stay safe here or will she be followed? The local sheriff who observes the newcomers get off the bus, thinks that this lady may be a battered wife. I'm really not all that sure that this is his business, provided nobody is following [...]

    5. Janice Kay Johnson is one of my favorite Harlequin authors, and this is her best I have read. She managed to walk a fine line with the Hero, Daniel, and heroine, Rebecca, between the Amish influence of their upbringings and the wider world, exploring the ways in which they didn't quite fit into either place. Both characters were gentle and vulnerable, but with determined strength in their own areas to protect those they loved and do whatever had to be done to ensure the safety of their families. [...]

    6. Another excellent story from JKJ. The authors skill is evident in the way she includes information on how the Amish live and their attitudes and philosophy without just doing an info dump. The struggle Rebecca has in reconciling the requirements of dealing with the danger she and her son are in with living plain in a society lacking technology and her initial reluctance to trust Daniel and accept his help are well described. My only disappointment is the the end felt a bit cut off. I would have [...]

    7. This is the first time the author has focused on the Amish life and she's done it proud. Rebecca Holt has Amish relatives she hasn't seen in years, but when her ex-husband threatens her after she learns of evidence that he might have been involved in illegalities with his business partners, Rebecca takes a ring and wallet that proves one partner is dead and runs. She has to protect herself and her young son.County sheriff Daniel Byler has an Amish background, too, which he set aside when he beca [...]

    8. I'm surprised this book is published by Harlequin Superromance as it didn't feel romantic to me at all. I like books set in the Amish Community but didn't really get a full feel of the Amish life in this book. The story is quite boring and concentrates mainly on the danger Rebecca is in due to something she found out about her ex husband.The romance between Rebecca and Daniel seemed to come out of nowhere as for the majority of the book they don't mention being attracted to each other then next [...]
