Danger in Amish Country by Marta Perry, Diane Burke & Kit Wilkinson

Book Description:

Fall from Grace by Marta Perry 
When one of her students witnesses a crime, Sara Esch gets too close to the truth, and widower Caleb King must risk it all for the woman who's taught him to love again. 
Dangerous Homecoming by Diane Burke 
Katie Lapp needs her childhood friend Joshua Miller more than ever when someone threatens her late husband's farm. Can Joshua protect her…even if it endangers his heart? 
Return to Willow Trace by Kit Wilkinson 
A series of accidents has startled their Plain community…and leads Lydia Stoltz to Joseph Yoder, the man who once broke her heart. At every turn, it seems their shared past holds the key to their future.
My Thoughts:
This three novellas in one was great.  First was Fall from Grace where Sara is a teacher in the local Amish school and is taken with a new little girl in her classroom.  When the little girl starts acting strange, Sara and the girl's father Caleb investigate and Sara is in more danger than ever!  Dangerous Homecoming is about a man coming home and stepping into more than he'd bargained for.  Katie married Joshua's best friend so he left home and hadn't come back for years.  Now he is back and he cannot believe the changes in his friend Katie.  Her farm and her life are in danger and Joshua is determined to keep her safe this time.  In Return to Willow Trace, Lydia didn't want to see Joseph again, and yet she did.  Neither of them expected their first meeting to be over a dead body.  Now both are in danger because of a past neither wants to get into.
I really enjoyed all the story lines.  Each were short but written well enough that you became invested in the characters.  I so wanted Sara and Caleb to find the bad guy so his daughter would be safe!  I felt terrible for Katie and everything she had to go through in life.  Joshua felt guilty but at the same time, he was stuck between a rock and a hard place but I couldn't wait for the two of them to work it out.  I completely understood Lydia's anger but was surprised at the lack of follow through on her part.  At the same time, it was understandable considering the past.  I had issues with Jeremiah staying gone for so long but I still wanted them together.
I rate these a 5/5.  I enjoyed all three of the stories!
