Jen Turano has once again proven to be a wonderful writer and storyteller! I have yet to read a book of hers I did not like, and this one is perhaps one of my new favorites by her. While I am not partial to Amish-related Christian romance, I found it to be very enlightening into their culture, and it added a unique twist to an already intriguing story.
World-famous pop star Margo Hartman is stuck in Amish country. After running away from an overbearing mother and an upcoming international tour, she finds herself in deep water - literally. In the span of just a few days, she is attacked by a duck, run off the road into a pond, shot, and hidden away in Amish garb on a farm. She quickly finds that Millersburg, Ohio is a town with a lot more secrets than it lets on. With the help of a matchmaking Mennonite and a chivalrous FBI agent, she searches for answers to questions she never even knew she had.
I loved Margo! I was a little apprehensive at first, mainly because I was worried she would be the stereotypical rich girl who would crumble at the sign of adversity. However, she pleasantly surprised me by being charming, resourceful, and eager to befriend those around her. Her helpful FBI agent, Brock Moore, was a breath of fresh air. Described as a throwback to the times of chivalrous men, he was such fun to read about. He was genuine, understanding towards Margo, and kind towards animals. A paragon of virtue, is Brock Moore. Unfortunately, he was also a bit dense. I have several notes on my kindle where I figured out the mystery WAY before Brock did. He kept seeing all the signs and then claiming he doesn't see them. My last note on the issue is "Worst FBI investigator ever." But I love him anyway.
The epilogue actually points to the next book, and I am so excited to read it! It follows this book as part of a series, which I know will be very popular. Great job, Jen Turano! You remain one of my favorite Christian romance authors.
