HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT
World weary and down to a threadbare faith, police officer Ashley Walters seeks refuge in Montezuma, Georgia, a quiet town with a thriving Mennonite community. Yet even in the peaceful surroundings, she can’t escape the haunting memories of crime-ridden Atlanta.
Then marriage-and-family counselor Patrick James partners with a teenaged Mennonite runaway to offer Ashley a second chance at redemption…and romance. But when violence erupts over revitalization plans that pit the Montezuma and Mennonite communities against each other, Ashley is forced to stop the person responsible—even if he is someone she’s come to love.
As God unlocks the secrets darkening Ashley’s heart, she must answer two crucial questions: Who is in control? And can she trust Him?
This book has one of the best inspirational threads I've ever read. In fact, it's not even a separate thread -- the inspiration seeps into every page. Characters are all at different stages of their spiritual development and that adds fresh interest to an already captivating plot. But the suspense is stellar too and there are puzzle pieces galore and the fun of trying to figure out the mystery before Ashley and Patrick do.
And let's not forget the romance. A hero who isn't afraid to pray for the heroine. A heroine who doesn't want to be touched by those prayers. They're at completely different places but Wallace doesn't let that stop her from zinging them with electric currents of the romantic kind! Tension grows taut as the story progresses, with lovely soft interludes that give the reader hope in a happily ever after.
A great book any way you look at and one you won't want to miss.
