Plain Threats by Alison Stone

My review today is on the Love Inspired Suspense, Plain Threats. I love Alison's stories; they are all full of unusual Amish situations. This book is well written, action packed, and full of faith, with a few twists and turns. Her character are not your normal Amish but are complex and compelling. I know you will enjoy it.

Rebecca Fisher was in an abusive marriage but now her world is in chaos. Her husband was accused of murder in an effort to try to protect the Amish way of life but was killed in prison. Rebecca's step son was the one that was instrumental in his father's arrest, now his best friend died in an accident under the influence of drugs and Samuel blames himself. Samuel has change and Rebecca is trying to find answers and the help her step son needs. She turns to an Englisher, a professor at the local college. Rebecca's community makes a point of letting her know that they might forgive outsiders but not one of their own. Many believed that she was aware of her husbands activities.

College professor Jake Burke is teaching a class about the Amish. He is writing a paper on the Amish youngie. In his quest to learn more of the Amish ways he often interview the young Amish men that were on rumspringa. He was surprised to see Rebecca but didn't want to tell her anything that Samuel told him in confidence. He ran to catch up with after she left and witnessed an attack on her. He drove her home only to have her attacked again.

So begins the journey of two people trying to save a young man and protect Rebecca from whoever was trying to hurt her. A great story of faith. God always has a plan and when we let go and let Him take over it will come to pass.
