Awakened Love Book Review

I have another new Amish book to share with you called Awakened Love written by Laura Hilton.
A Bashful Baker  
Twenty–one–year–old Katie Detweiler loves to bake. When she's hired at a local bed–and–breakfast to do just that, she's excited, especially because the owner promises the shy young woman that she won't have to leave the kitchen. But when her boss's husband requires round–the–clock care, Katie is forced to overcome her shyness and wait on customers, as well. Before long, a "customer" reveals himself to be a private investigator who informs Katie that she was adopted, and that her biological sister needs a bone marrow transplant.  
A Man on the Run  
Twenty–two–year–old Abram Hilty has fled the drama of Shipshewana, Indiana, for Seymour, Missouri, where he's staying with his cousin Micah Graber. His plan is to hide, from a girl he no longer cares about—and also from a cold–blooded killer. Uncomfortable sharing his past and afraid of the consequences, he buries his troubles deep inside. When he meets Katie Detweiler, he is immediately attracted, but his pursuit of her is complicated by the problems of his past.  
An Adventure Unfolds  
As Katie wrestles with questions of identity, she also struggles to navigate her blossoming romance with Abram, in the face of opposition from a jealous friend. As their relationship becomes more serious, Abram can no longer conceal the truth about his past. But parts of that past rear their heads, barring the way for a marriage between them—at least for now. Through dangers and near–death experiences, Katie and Abram must find their way back to each other. But only the power of forgiveness can bring them together for good.
My Thoughts:

Wow, for a peaceful Amish people, this is one doozy of a story! There is murder involved and a woman lying about who the father of her baby is, which she says is Abram's but he really isn't.

As for Katie, she finds out all kinds of secrets while Abram has had to go back to where he came from to confront all the lies that his ex-girlfriend is telling and to face the killer who killed several of his friends.

It's a shock to find out she is adopted but that isn't the end of the mysteries she uncovers. But another tragedy will bring her and Abram back together.

If you love reading about the Amish, you are really going to love this story as it involves a lot of different circumstances that make a book good to read: love, mystery and every day life.

Happy Reading!
