Reviewed by Maureen Timerman for Readers' Favorite

I enjoyed this fast pace book. You won't be able to put it down until you get to the end and find out "Who". The story is about Ashley Walters who has joined the police force in Montezuma, Georgia. She is trying to come to terms with the senseless murder of her brother Eric, some 10 years ago. She is now living in a devoted Mennonite area, and the folks have taken to her so much that they have started matchmaking.

Enter Patrick James and Jonathan Yoder. You will wonder which of them, if any, Ashley is going to end up with. Patrick has been hurt in a previous relationship, and Jonathan has lost his darling wife.
There is also Bradley, a struggling 13 year old who has just lost his adoptive father. He had been sent away to another family when his "Dad" fell sick. He is fully uncertain as to where he belongs, as his real mother had given him away to the Yoder's. He had been acting up, and ends up the center of a big controversy in this quiet Community. In Bradley, Ashley sees her brother, and he leads her to Chester. I loved all of the interactions here.

There is a lot of mystery happening here, with a lot of twists and turns, and some good romance. You will hope that Ashley will find the healing she needs here in this sweet community. I thoroughly enjoyed how God is working in all of their lives, and helps bring peace.
