Multidimensional characterization, fascinating details about Amish culture and
a twisting, complex plot make for the kind of rich reading experience readers have come to expect from Harper. One of her best efforts to date.

A near-fatal gunshot wound convinces officer Kat Lindley to take a job as a dispatcher for a small-town police department in Amish country. But when Kat learns that the local Amish community is under attack, she agrees to work undercover posing as the intended bride of artisan Luke Brand.

Deciding who she can trust is difficult, but at least she's certain of Luke's honesty. The attraction between them is a complication, but Kat is very focused. After one death, it becomes clear that other lives are at stake —maybe even her own. (Jun., 400 pp., $5.99)
