Love Finds You in Sugarcreek Ohio - Serena Miller (And now a movie!)

5 Stars!!!!!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
A mysterious outsider casts a long shadow on Ohio's Amish country. Policewoman Rachel Troyer has always looked after her three elderly Amish aunts, proprietors of a farmhouse inn near Sugarcreek, Ohio. The idyllic town is popular with tourists, who come to sample its famous Amish goods. But one thing is clear to Rachel --- Joe Matthews is no tourist. When the bearded stranger lands on her aunts' doorstep, begging shelter for himself and his young son, Rachel is suspicious.
Will she be able to uncover Joe's secrets despite her aunts' --- and her own --- growing affection for him?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Prior to writing novels, Serena Miller wrote for many periodicals, including Woman's World, Guideposts, Billy Graham's Decision Magazine, Reader's Digest, Focus on the Family, Christian Woman, and The Detroit Free Press Magazine. She has spent many years partnering with her husband in full-time ministry and lives on a farm in southern Ohio near a thriving Amish community.

MY REVIEW -
Oh I enjoyed this book very much! The storyline was suspenseful and heartfelt at the same time. The plot excellently unfolds. I really liked the little twist of both main characters NOT being Amish but living among them (or family to). This just makes it so much more interesting and original.

The character development was great! I fell in love with Joe instantly and never once questioned his integrity (like Rachel did over and over). I also loved Bobby, his adorable young son - both of these characters were very well done. Rachel, on the other hand, annoyed the heck outta me! I think I disliked her for a good half of the book, then finally started to warm up to her. She was so distrusting, to the point of being rude and unlikeable. But her character was suppose to be that way. You are suppose to fall for Joe and not like Rachel till the end - So thumbs up to the author for getting it right. It also made it more interesting and fun that way.

I devoured this book in just 2 sittings - it was that good!

Thank you Litfuse for supplying me with this book for an honest review!
