My Review:  
Where do I start? Have I told you about my "LOVE" of Amish Books? Some might say I am actually obsessed with them. I know that my reviews might not show this but believe  me I am. I have always loved them. 

This book was, as for most of Love Inspired books a fast read. I enjoy taking one ot two with me on appointments or taking a trip for that very reason. Danger In Amish Country was one of those such books as it has three different novellas with in the covers.

The first novella, Fall from Grace by author Marta Perry is one of fear of doing what is right or trying to just be safe. Crime, love, protection. This novella was written in such a way as to pull you in and does not let you go. The story line and the characters life's leave an inspired lesson that does not go away. 

The second novella, Dangerous Homecoming by author Diane Burke is one to sink your teeth in and cry, laugh, and root for childhood friendships to come out of the struggles of loss and threats to tear apart everything you come to love about  Katie Lapp and Joshua Miller. Do you still have a childhood friend that is there for you? 

Now for the third and last novella, Return to Willow Trace by Kit Wilkinson completes this fascinating collection. Have you ever been hurt to the point you feel there is no hope? Did your heart hurt so much that you couldn't breath? Well meet characters Lydia Stoltz and Joseph Yoder. Wow! For being Amish and struggling with your faith is something that seems so out of place. But let me say, "I am not Amish, but I was raised in a strict church background. There were and some times even now I struggle. Character Lydia Stoltz has to make some tough decisions and her faith is tested as is character Joseph Yoder's.
 
The story lines was excellent in each novellas. Not to fast and not slow. Each one captured my attention and never lost it. I so wanted more of each. The characters in all three are well written. The longing to help, love, as well as mystery and intrigue all wrapped up in their lives. This book is a must for your bookshelf's. 

So for the reasons above I will be giving this book (and if I had a higher one I would give more) my Breath Of Life Rating of:

 Five Clock Rating!! 

Disclosure: I did receive the above book in exchange for my honest opinion and or review. But the Opinions are my own and yours may differ.
