“Danger in Plain Sight” by Marta Perry was a wonderful Amish mystery. I enjoy Amish stories anyway and this was a double treat because it was also a suspenseful story. I really liked all of the main characters in the novel; they were so likable. I was into the story from the first paragraph. It was a great lead in and I was hooked. Libby Morgan is in town for her brother’s wedding and to possible move back home because she quit her job. Her dear Amish friend Esther has written that she needs to speak with her and Libby is concerned that something is wrong. Libby can’t wait to meet with Esther and is planning to do just that as soon as the wedding is over and guests leave. She is too late, however, as Esther’s horse and buggy has been hit on the road by a hit-and-run driver. Esther is in critical condition with a head injury and cannot tell Libby what has had her so upset. Adam Byler is the sheriff of Lancaster County and is friends with the Morgan family. Libby is in love with Adam, but he is resisting her because of some idea that he is not good enough for Libby.
With this background in mind, Esther’s deliberate buggy crash is being investigated by Adam. Libby has information that could shed light on who might have been the cause of the accident. As Esther is recovering, other incidents are occurring that indicate that she is still in danger. Libby, as a result of her friendship with Esther, is also in danger. During this investigation, Libby and Adam come to realize how much they mean to each other.
This was a real page-turner. I read this novel in two days (and I work full-time). It was easy to read and I was so motivated to find out who the culprits were that I could not put the book down.
I received a free Kindle copy of this book in return for my honest review.
