Anne Reviews ~ The Amish Firefighter by Laura V. Hilton + Giveaway

UPDATE: Giveaway has ended. 

WINNER is Britney Adams!!! 
 
May 3rd 2016 by Whitaker House

Abigail Stutzman thought it was bad enough being dropped at the nearest bus station and sent to live several states away with some relatives she'd never even heard of, much less met. But now, just a week after her arrival in Jamesport, Missouri, she finds herself at the scene of a barn fire. An intentional barn fire. And all fingers are pointed at her. She's desperate to prove her innocence and protect her reputation, but nobody's making that easy to do. And God certainly doesn't seem willing to help.

Sam Miller is in the process of turning over a new leaf. Determined to atone for the follies of his past, he is a volunteer firefighter, an EMT, and a paramedic-in-training. With suspicious barn fires escalating, and the Miller family being among the victims, no one is more determined to see the perpetrators brought to justice than Sam.

When their paths first cross at the site of a barn burning, the emotional intensity rivals the warms of the flames. Soon, they must decide whether this fire is one they should feed or fight. And they'll discover that the truth can prove more dangerous than a blazing inferno.

My Review


Feeling rejected by her family, Abigail is sent away to another Amish community. Shortly after her arrival, barns are being set on fire. Is she the perpetrator, or just an innocent victim?


Sam, despite being attracted to Abigail, is sure she is at the heart of these fires and treats her accordingly. Will he uncover the truth, and allow his heart to fully embrace Abigail?



I want to see more stories like The Amish Firefighter from Hilton’s pen! This is one book I thoroughly enjoyed reading. The character arc is refined with a plot full of mystery and intrigue! Sometimes Amish fiction is just too ‘sweet’. The Amish Firefighter has much more suspense and action than the typical Amish book, and I read it in record time. It’s a page turner, for sure and for certain!

I appreciate the author and publisher sending me an advance copy for review purposes. Only my honest opinion is asked for. No compensation received.
