Amish Witness to Murder (Amish Country Justice, #18) by Dana R. Lynn

Amish Witness to Murder (Amish Country Justice, #18)

To identify her father’s killer…

she must stay alive

After finding her family’s barn in flames and witnessing her father’s murder, Beth Troyer becomes the killer’s next target. She narrowly escapes death when the murderer turns on her, but now she’s left temporarily blind. She’ll have to rely on former family friend Gideon Bender to keep her safe until her eyesight returns. But with a killer who’ll stop at nothing to find her, staying alive might just be impossible…


Beth Troyer's peaceful Amish existence is changed forever when she returns home to find her family business engulfed in flames and she witnesses a masked assailant fighting with her father. In the blink of an eye, her father has been murdered, she's become the killer's next target, and she's also temporarily blind! How can she protect herself when she can't see?

In her notes, author Dana R. Lynn reveals that this is the final book about the Bender siblings, and all I can say is Wow! This captivating story kept me fully engaged in Beth Troyer and Gideon Bender's race to escape a killer. I felt Beth's fear and I marveled at her strength and perseverance; I admired Gideon's protective nature, but I wondered how he would ever convince Beth that he no longer had feelings for her sister Miriam. Would their long-time friendship become something more?

Amish Witness to Murder checks off all of the boxes for romantic Christian suspense! Danger, mystery, friendship, and faith make this a story that you don't want to miss, and there's also a reunion with the rest of the Bender family. Grab a copy today!

Kidnapped in Montana by Sharon Dunn

Kidnapped in Montana (Love Inspired Suspense)

A case of mistaken identity…

leads to a lethal wilderness chase

Believing he’s tracked down his missing informant in a gem-smuggling investigation, FBI agent Ryan McCloud unwittingly leads deadly assassins to Catherine Reed’s mountain hideout. As the informant’s identical twin, and already hiding from her abusive ex-husband, Catherine now has two threats to her life. With danger at every turn, can Ryan protect Catherine and find her missing sister…before it’s too late?


What do you do when your identical twin becomes involved in a deadly cat-and-mouse game with a gem-smuggling ring but you are the one who becomes their target? Author Sharon Dunn spins a tale of mistaken identity, spousal abuse, and deadly killers who will stop at nothing to find missing diamonds. Catherine is hiding from her abusive ex-husband, her twin Victoria is on the run, and FBI Agent Ryan McCloud may be the only person who can save them!

This nail-biting story kept me turning the pages to see if Catherine could escape her abusive ex and if Ryan could help these twin sisters find peace and justice. Kidnapped in Montana is an exciting suspense story with intriguing characters, a great setting, and a realistic portrayal of learning to trust again. I recommend it to all who enjoy romantic Christian suspense.
