Among the Innocent by Mary Alford ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

Among the Innocent is a Christian-based suspense/romance novel set in an Amish community.  It's more of a romance novel than a suspense novel because the romance is the key storyline of the book.  I enjoyed the novel and the main characters and really enjoyed reading a book featuring Amish characters.

Leah grew up in an Amish community in St. Ignatius, Montana.  When her entire family was killed ten years earlier, she leaves the Amish faith and joins the police force.  The person that was believed to be responsible for the murders killed themselves and the case was closed...until another Amish woman is murdered in similar circumstances.  Was this a copycat murder or had the wrong person been blamed for the murders ten years earlier?  Leah and Dalton, the new chief of police, work on this case together and struggle to put the pieces together before there is another murder.  When it appears that Leah is the target of this killer, she and Dalton know that they have to stop the killer soon.  As Leah and Dalton become closer and the need to catch the killer becomes personal for both of them, the suspense really ramps up and it's difficult to put the book down.  

Can Leah and Dalton find the killer before it's too late?  Will they be able to find their 'happily ever after'?  You need to read this exciting new book by Mary Alford to find out the answers to these questions.  Once you start this book you won't want to put it down until the last page.  Mary Alford is a new author for me but after reading and enjoying this book, I plan to check out her previous books.
