Amish Secrets (River Haven, #3) by Marta Perry


Rachel Hurst sacrificed the life she wanted to stay home and care for her father and siblings after her mother’s death. But now her father has decided to remarry, and there’s no room for Rachel. Desperate to find a job, she accepts the position of housekeeper for a wealthy elderly woman in her isolated mansion.

Jacob Beiler thought he had gotten over Rachel’s rejection, but when she arrives as the new housekeeper, he is battered by both joy and bitterness at seeing her again.

When odd near accidents threaten the elderly woman’s well-being, her relatives are quick to point fingers, but Rachel suspects someone is intent on harming her employer. When no one believes her, the only person she can turn to for help is Jacob. With danger deepening, Rachel faces a situation that could cost her life…and will certainly break her heart once again.



About The Author

 Marta Perry is a Pennsylvania-based author of over 35 novels, many of them inspirational romances. She uses her rural Pennsylvania life and her Pennsylvania Dutch heritage in writing her books, especially in her Pleasant Valley Amish series for Berkley Books and her new Amish-set suspense series for HQN Books.

Marta and her husband live in a centuries-old farmhouse in a quiet central Pennsylvania valley. They have three grown children and six beautiful grandchildren, and when she's not busy writing her next book, she's usually trying to keep up with her gardening, baking for church events, or visiting those beautiful grandkids.



My Review

I felt for Rachel right from the beginning, it appears that she has sacrificed her life, and now?
Then there is her former fiancé Jacob, who is now working as a carpenter at the home of her mother's former employer, and now she is about to embark on the same job.
The employer an elderly woman, but with a lot of spunk, has now taken on a hurting teenager, and danger is lurking!
As with the previous books in this series, you won't see what is coming, and there are a lot of surprises here.
I loved the outcome, really not what I was expecting, and this can be read alone!
I received this book through Edelweiss and the Publisher Harlequin, and was not required to give a positive review.
