Plain Outsider

GIVEAWAY
STONE, ALISON
PLAIN OUTSIDER

Caught between her Amish past and Englisch future...
and in the crosshairs of danger!

Growing up Amish, Deputy Becky Spoth never fathomed she'd become the target of a relentless stalker. She left her Amish community to serve the people of her small hometown -- not to become someone's prey. Newcomer Deputy Harrison James is the only one who believes she's in harm's way. Now, her future in in the hands of this handsome stranger.

My Review:

An Amish deputy makes for an interesting heroine. Of course, Becky isn't Amish now...that part of her life is over and yet the fall- out of her departure from the faith is always close at hand since she's chosen to serve the very community she left. Interesting dynamics -- especially with her family -- provide a tense undercurrent to this romantic suspense.

Becky is all about proving herself -- so much so that she doesn't appreciate Harrison's support in the beginning. That quickly changes as menacing 'pranks' turn even more sinister and Becky slowly discovers that Harrison is the only one she can count on. Love the dynamics between these two as they spend more time together trying to unravel a puzzling string of events that no one else is willing to believe are deliberate threats targeting Becky.

Page-turning suspense and a slow-build romance not to mention a cute rescue dog named Chewie, make Plain Outsider the perfect choice for a summer escape read.

    2. Funny you should mention her -- I've put on her books on hold at the library -- it's an audio book. I know she doesn't write Christian Fiction so I'm a bit apprehensive about content but the story sounded so intriguing I thought I'd give it a try.

  5. I love the Love Inspired Suspense books. Add to that that I LOVE Amish stories and then a cute doggie named Chewie plus your approval review and I'm putting this one on my TBR list. Of course I would be beyond thrilled to be the very happy recipient of "PLAIN OUTSIDER" by being the very fortunate one selected. Then I could read it sooner than later since patience has never been one of my virtues. :)
