My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ohh so twisted. Right off the bat we are in a sick individuals head. Javen is part of an Amish community who has just returned from being shunned. He suffers from a God complex and has set his sights on a young girl named Hannah. Both Hannah and her father inform him he is delusional and there will be no marriage.
After that the story jumps to 10 years later to show that Hannah has left the Amish community and joined the English world as a SBI Homicide Detective. The confirmed death of her dog and the presumed death of her father were her reasons for leaving. She has vowed to find the killer even though that meant leaving the only life she ever known behind.
When bodies start turning up dressed in Amish clothes and looking like Hannah, she realizes that her worst fear has probably showed back up, Javen.
Hannah and her partner Sean Murphy, who just goes by Murph in the book, have a very interesting relationship. Hannah is not interested in anything to do with romance. Her partner on the other hand teases her all the time with wanting to hook up and sexual innuendo. But at the core the two are very close friends and would die for each other.
Throughout this book we certainly get a look at both the good and bad of Amish and commune life and it made for interesting reading. This is not a standalone book and the ending though defiantly a happy for now leaves a few things open for future books. It will be interesting to see where the author plans to take this series.
