The Inn at Harts Haven by Patricia Davids


 n this close-knit Amish community, she’ll hide in plain sight…

Pregnant and desperate, Victoria Worthington runs to the only place that’s ever felt safe. For years she’s been controlled, first by her crime-boss father, then by her ex-boyfriend. Donning a hand-sewn dress, a kapp and a new name, she escapes as Abby Martin to the Amish community of Harts Haven, where she spent happy summers with her grandparents. Taking a job as a maid at the local inn, Abby plans to repair her grandparents’ abandoned house and build a new life for her baby.

Since a tragedy took his family, contractor Joseph Troyer has traveled from one Amish town to another, refusing to let anyone get close. Not that it stops the inn’s elderly, eccentric owner, Rose, from doing some matchmaking while Joe renovates her kitchen. Though Abby is more outspoken than any Amish woman he knows, something draws him to her—and to the secrets she’s hiding.

Taken under Rose’s wing, Abby begins to find her place at last. But even here there’s no hiding from the past. Only by facing it with courage, faith and the unexpected gift of love can this haven become the home she’s longed for.

My Review


 
I really enjoyed this book, it offered a bit of suspense, and sweet romance.
This Amish community seems to embrace newcomers, and folds them into their lives. We meet the ladies that have, or are trying, to open an inn, and sweet Rose who seems to have a calling as a matchmaker!
The author has woven a page tuner story of a young woman, Abigail Martin [her new name], and her journey to flee the horror of her life, and hopes to rekindle the happy times as a youngster spent with her Amish grandparents. We also meet a young man, Joseph Troyer, who seems to have lost everything, and the last thing he wants to do is fall in love.
I am glad I picked this one up, and looking forward to the next read in this series!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Harlequin, and was not required to give a positive review.
