Olivia Newport is nuts. Really. She writes an Amish novel AND a Historical all in one. Who does that? A genius. She's a genius. And I love her ... and it.
In Plain View is book two of her Valley of Choice series. Once again, as I did in the review of book number one, I will say even if you're not into Amish fiction, you'll thoroughly enjoy this series! I'm not an Amish reader by any stretch of the imagination, and yet ... Olivia has sucked me in. :)
So. Get this equation. Amish book + Historical novel + Suspense laden plot including a bomb. Oh yes. And romance.
Here is a quote to whet your appetite :)
"Annie pressed her lips together and blew her breath out her nose. 'I was there remember? I was the one who saw what happened to Karl Kramer. I was the checking to see if he was breathing. That gives me some rights.'
'Rights. Not very Amish of you.'
'A man has been injured ... give me a reason not to go straight to the police..."
I love it! Rebellious wanna-be Amish girl has left her cell phone, laptop and high speed business to uncover her own set of trouble and suspense in the Community. Annie may not succeed at being Amish and circumstances will certainly do all they can to hinder it.
It's a great read, and if you read book 1, you'll definitely be aching to find out more about the romance between Modern Annie and Amish Rufus, about Amish Ruth who's dabbling with the English, about Jacob and the beginning of the Beiler Amish roots ...
Yep. Olivia Newport drives me nuts--because her writing is just. that. good!
