Among the Innocent by Mary Alford: Book Review
About the book:
Title: Among the Innocent
Author: Mary Alford
Genre: Amish Romance
Release Date: June 7, 2022
When Leah Miller’s entire Amish family was murdered ten years ago, the person believed responsible took his own life. Since then, Leah left the Amish and joined the police force. Now, after another Amish woman is found murdered with the same MO, it becomes clear that the wrong man may have been blamed for her family’s deaths.
As Leah and the new police chief, Dalton Cooper, work long hours struggling to fit the pieces together in order to catch the killer, they can’t help but grow closer. When secrets from both of their pasts begin to surface, an unexpected connection between them is revealed. But this is only the beginning. Could it be that the former police chief framed an innocent man to keep the biggest secret of all buried? And what will it mean for Leah–and Dalton–when the full truth comes to light?
USA Today bestselling author Mary Alford keeps you guessing as two determined souls plumb the dark depths of the past in order to forge a brighter future–together.
This is not your typical Amish romance. Yes, there are Amish, but the story itself revolves more around other characters. Leah was Amish until her family was murdered by a psychopath. When new murders begin cropping up, Leah must face her past. There are twists and turns that will leave you reeling, and I loved the last few pages (even more than I anticipated) as the story came full circle. The author does an amazing job of drawing you in and refusing to let go as the story unfolds. Past secrets, old wounds, new friendships, they all come into play in this book as Leah attempts to rekindle her relationship with God and overcome her anger. I received a copy of this book through RevellReads. I was not required to leave a positive review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
