Goodreads Summery:Did a sweet-faced Amish teenager brutally murder a young woman? To save her career, big-city lawyer Jessica Langdon is determined to defend him—against the community's bitter and even violent outrage. Yet without an understanding of Amish culture, Jessica must rely on arrogant businessman Trey Morgan, who has ties to the Amish community… and believes in the boy's guilt.
Jessica has threats coming from all sides: a local fanatic, stirred up by the biased publicity of the case; the dead girl's boyfriend; even from the person she's learned to trust the most, Trey Morgan. But just when Jessica fears she's placed her trust in the wrong man, Trey saves her life. And now they must both reach into a dangerous past to protect everyone's future—including their own.
I was very excited to read this book! I first read books from Marta Perry many years ago from the Love Inspired Line. I have only recently learned she has written other books not associated with that line and I was very excited to read them so I jumped at the chance to review her new book.
One of the many things I love about Marta Perry is her writing style. She is phenomenal at her descriptions. When I am reading her books I feel like I am right there in the book as I read.
Murder in Plain Sight opens with the death of an English girl and the blame is been put on a young Amish man. Jessica is sent from the big city to help the boy. At first it seems the boy is guilty but slowly things begin to happen that start to show things are not as they appear. Jessica is hired by a local family to help the boy. Trey is the son of the family and he does not want Jessica there. He is still dealing with the tragic suicide of his father and only wants to protect his mother even though his mother hired Jessica. Over time romance begins to bloom and more questions then answers begins to surface about this case.
I will say the climax was a little predictable. I kind of saw it coming. The ending leaves a lot of questions unanswered and will leave the reader excited for the next book in the series Vanish in Plain Sight due out Spring 2011!
I rate this book 4.5 stars
The climax of the story not being as surprising as I had expected is the only thing that keeps this just under 5. A great read! A must add to your reading list.
I received this Ebook for free through NetGalley for this review.
