Hidden in Plain View by Diane Burke

Hidden in Plain ViewBook Description:
Colliding WorldsAfter a tragedy rips through her Amish community, Sarah Lapp doesn't remember anything. She can't recall her Plain upbringing, her deceased husband or the shooting that landed her under the protection of handsome undercover cop Samuel King. She is, however, aware of the confusing feelings he creates in her from the moment he walks into her life. Sam is determined to protect Sarah and her unborn baby in case the shooters return. Because if they do, it'll be more than just Sarah's memory at stake.

My Thoughts:
I was enthralled with this book.  Sarah Lapp wakes up in the hospital and cannot remember anything.  She was apparently the victim in a shooting where a vindictive man killed another man and her husband, the father of her unborn child.  Now the murderer is determined to get what he believes she has of his and will do anything to get it.  Sarah is put under the protection of Detective Samuel King.  He was chosen for this assignment because of his unique Amish background.  He will have to guard his heart as well as Sarah to keep the life he has chosen!
I loved the issues wrapped up in mystery in this book!  The author not only made it a suspense but included Amish and Romance and did a great job with it.  I felt so terrible for Sarah constantly wanting/needing her memory but never having even a flash.  Sam was a strong protector and though he was not Amish, still had their core beliefs so he fit in well with the family.  Sarah's in-laws were wonderful characters and though not perfect, they were wonderful to her.  I was beyond ready for them to catch the bad guy at the end because he was soooo good at being bad!!
I rate this one a 5/5.  It was a good suspense!

Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book (via netgalley).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
