Amish Jane Doe by Shelley Shepard Gray


He left her without a word…

Now he needs her help to catch a killer

Escaping his Amish community as a teen was about survival, but leaving meant breaking LizBeth Troyer’s heart. Now Detective Jackson Lapp is working a cold case—and the clue to a murdered Amish girl’s identity leads him back to his hometown. Can Jackson and LizBeth rebuild their broken trust and work together to catch a killer before another young Amish woman is murdered?



The cover and title of this new book are attention grabbers, for sure, and the story that unfolds inside is equally compelling! Who was the young Amish woman who was found murdered in a seedy motel two years ago and why do the clues lead back to Berlin, Ohio? Cincinnati police Detective Jackson Lapp returns to his hometown after a twelve-year absence determined to learn the victim's identity and uncover the killer. His findings, however, may be more than he ever bargained for! His high school sweetheart still lives in Berlin and the old feelings they once shared may not have ended after all!

Amish Jane Doe is a wonderful mixture of Amish values, engaging suspense, and second chances. Multiple twists and turns, a killer who is a total surprise, and a heartwarming theme of faith, family, and forgiveness make this a book that I couldn't put down. Shelley Shepard Gray once again proves her unique talent and I'm hoping that she will share more Cold Case Files with us.

I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. There was no obligation for a positive review.
