Happy July 1. It is hard to believe that half of 2019 is already over. Muffin But Trouble by Victoria Hamilton will be out tomorrow along with Yours Truly, Thomas by Rachel Fordham, Married to a Stranger by Laura V. Hilton and A Thread of Darkness by Sally Goldenbaum. I am happy to see that A Merry Muffin Mystery series is continuing with a new publisher. Child's Play by Angela Marsons releases on July 11. It is the eleventh novel in the DI Kim Stone series. I am looking forward to reading each of these new novels.
Amish Covert Operation by Meghan Carver takes readers to Northern Indiana. Katie Schwartz is a widow with twin daughters. The only other family that Katie has is her brother, Timothy who she has not seen in the last two months. Whenever Katie goes to his farm, she is unable to locate him. Some Amish teenagers told Katie that they saw Timothy in a cabin in the woods near his home. Katie bikes to Timothy’s farm and finds a social security card in Timothy’s workshop. She then proceeds to the cabin and is happy to see Timothy at the door. But then a man is suddenly behind him with a gun and Timothy yells at Katie to run. She darts into the trees with gunshots exploding around her. Fortunately, Katie runs into Special Agent Adam Troyer with Immigrations and Customers Enforcement. These dangerous men are now on the hunt for Katie and it is Adam’s job to keep her safe. Katie finds herself attracted to Adam, but he is not Amish. As Adam struggles to protect Katie, he admires her strong faith and wonders about a future with the lovely Amish widow. The corrupt men are determined to find Katie. Can Adam safeguard Katie from the criminals?
Amish Covert Operation is a Love Inspired Suspense that will have you on the edge of your seat. I thought the story was well-written and it had a peppy pace. I found the main characters of Katie Schwartz and Adam Troyer to be appealing. Each of them has a history along with flaws (makes them relatable). Katie is a widow with twin daughters. Her brother, Timothy is the last of her family and she is used to seeing him daily as he tends to her animals. Since Easter, though, he has not been around, nor has he been attending church. Katie wants to get answers from him and heads to his farm. Katie sees something she should not and finds herself on the run with Special Agent Adam Troyer protecting her. Adam had a rotten childhood with an alcoholic father, and he had his own battle with bottle. Adam feels is his unworthy of God and someone as lovely as Katie. Katie is a woman of faith and knows that God is watching out for her. She prays for guidance and assistance. I liked the dialogue between Adam and Katie as they got to know each other. The story was enhanced by Adam’s struggle with faith and finding his way back to God. The story was full of action as Katie and Adam tried to stay one step of ahead of the criminals. I liked the inclusion of coded message (I have a thing for ciphers). There is a great action packed ending that will have you quickly turning the pages to find out what happens next. I enjoyed the epilogue that wrapped up Amish Covert Operation. Amish Covert Operation has suspense, electric sparks, gunshots, and perilous situations.
Amish Covert Operation is out today in e-book. It will be out on July 2 in paperback. Thank you for reading my review. I hope I have helped you to find a new book to read. I will be back tomorrow to share my thoughts about Married to a Stranger by Laura V. Hilton. I hope you have a very special day. Take care and Happy Reading!
