Hide in Plain Sight by Marta Perry

From the Back Cover:

She couldn't turn her back on her family in their time of need. So when her sister was injured, financial expert Andrea Hampton traded the big city for Amish country to help turn her grandmother's house into an inn.
But life with the Plain People took a treacherous turn when a string of accidents and pranks threatened her family. Someone didn't want the secrets the old house harbored to come to light. Trusting anyone-- even the handsome carpenter who seemed so genuine--was a battle for Andrea, but her life depended on her ability to find the truth.

My Thoughts:

I always enjoy a mystery!  And this one had a bit of sweet romance and a nice sense of family.

Andrea Hampton rushes back home to Amish country from the big city after her sister is hospitalized from being hit by a car.  With Rachel laid up with broken legs, Andrea stays on to help Grams with her plan to turn her home into a Bed & Breakfast.  She immediately meets up with hunky Cal who happens to be living in the family barn.  

After several events of someone lurking around the property, accidents and outright attempted murder, Cal is there to protect the ladies, and of course the chemistry between Andrea and Cal heats up.  Not extreme heat... just sweetness.  This is a Christian romance novel after all.  

Marta Perry did a great job with character development and allowing you to visualize what you are reading. I could almost smell the chemicals in the barn toward the end of the book. 

This is the first book in a three-part series (The Three Sisters Inn - Book 1). Nice little mystery and romance and a quick read of only 256 pages.  A bit predictable, but still a good read.

My Rating:
