Hiding in Plain Sight by Amy Wallace

This Book was supplied to me by Harvest House Publishers through NetGalley for a review in return.

Book Description

In a quiet town with a thriving Mennonite community, police officer Ashley Walters finds her threadbare faith and way of life challenged by the Plain people whose simple dress and welcoming manner open her eyes to a God she left behind. Peace eludes Ashley until she realizes the answers she seeks aren't found in starting over but in returning to the simple truth that it's God who overcomes the world, not her.

My Review

This book is the first book in the Place of Refuge Series. This is the first book I have ever read by Amy Wallace. I’ll tell you one thing it will not be the last. I loved this book so much, I couldn’t put it down.

Ashley Walters has a lot of issues with her faith and just dealing with her brother’s death. She becomes a police officer to help her deal with some of those issues, but throughout the book, she realizes she needs God to help her. This is one of the best books I have read in a while about how people deal with their faith in God. I think that Amy Wallace shows you that throughout this entire book.

You know all of us have issues, but we all need to just turn to the Lord. I forget about that also, like Ashley did. It just hit home for me.

Through the book, she meets a Mennonite family who she falls in love with. She also starts dating Patrick. It is a GREAT story, one that you will love.

I won’t say anything else, I don’t want to spoil the book for you. I would definitely suggest this book to my friends and family. Again, I love this book and thank you to Harvest House Publishers for giving me an opportunity to review this book.
