Book Review - Hiding In Plain Sight
by Amy Wallace
Published by Harvest House Publishers
Pub Date: April 01, 2012
Ashley Walters is a police officer who moved to Montezuma, a small town with a Mennonite community. Her encounter with a traumatised young Mennonite boy, Bradley Yoder, whom she finds breaking and entering a grocery store, is the start of a journey which sees her settling ever deeper into the life of the small town. She finds herself becoming more and more enmeshed in a web of mystery which surrounds the town’s proposed new development and the epidemic of attacks on Mennonite families in the area.
The strong plot was well-handled, but I really could not find the love interest character - Patrick - to be very likeable, and I think that perhaps the strong Christian emphasis might have been even more effective if it hadn’t been quite so emphatically stressed. I would certainly enjoy seeing Ashley return in future books.
