Amish Country Kidnapping by Mary Alford

Amish Country KidnappingABOUT THE BOOK

For this Amish widow, nowhere is safe...

Unless she trusts the Englischer she once loved.

Waking up to a man trying to kidnap her is Amish widow Rachel Albrecht's most terrifying moment--until she discovers he's already taken her teenaged sister. Now Rachel's life--and her sister's--depends on her first love, Englischer deputy Noah Warren. But the danger of rekindling their forbidden love is the least of Rachel's worries with her family in a killer's sights...


The action and drama begin immediately in this story of a young Amish widow who escapes from a kidnap attempt, only to find that her younger sister has already been abducted. From that point on, Rachel Albrecht faces increasing danger as she and Deputy Sheriff Noah Warren attempt to find her sister Eva. Rachel soon realizes that she isn't just facing physical danger --- she is also at risk emotionally because this "Englischer" deputy sheriff is the one who stole her heart years ago and then broke it when he and his family moved away.

Amish Country Kidnapping is Mary Alford's first attempt at writing Amish suspense and she has certainly succeeded. I found myself surprised many times by the events that were unfolding because there was no apparent reason for these two young Amish women to be hunted. This book is everything a suspense novel should be: intriguing, intense, and action-packed but fans of Amish fiction will also be thrilled because Alford shows the peace and forgiveness that is part of the Amish way of life that most people find so appealing.

Amish Country Kidnapping is an enjoyable read and I recommend it to all who enjoy romantic suspense and Amish fiction.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and I am voluntarily sharing my honest thoughts in this review.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


MARY ALFORD was inspired to become a writer after reading romantic suspense greats Victoria Holt and Phyllis Whitney. Soon creating characters and throwing them into dangerous situations that test their faith came naturally for Mary. In 2012 Mary entered the Speed Dating contest hosted by Love Inspired Suspense and later received “the call”. Writing for Love Inspired Suspense has been a dream come true for Mary.
