Among the Innocent Review



About the Book 

 When Leah Miller's entire Amish family was murdered ten years ago, the person believed responsible took his own life. Since then, Leah left the Amish and joined the police force. Now, after another Amish woman is found murdered with the same MO, it becomes clear that the wrong man may have been blamed for her family's deaths.

As Leah and the new police chief, Dalton Cooper, work long hours struggling to fit the pieces together in order to catch the killer, they can't help but grow closer. When secrets from both of their pasts begin to surface, an unexpected connection between them is revealed. But this is only the beginning. Could it be that the former police chief framed an innocent man to keep the biggest secret of all buried? And what will it mean for Leah--and Dalton--when the full truth comes to light?

USA Today bestselling author Mary Alford keeps you guessing as two determined souls plumb the dark depths of the past in order to forge a brighter future--together. (Goodreads)



My Thoughts

This is the first book I have read by Mary Alford and it won't be the last! It was a fast paced read with strong characters and a terrific setting. I couldn't put the book down with the suspense and a serial killer on the loose. I really enjoyed the characters and I thought the plot was well done. Since this is a book about a serial killer be prepared for the creepy vibes. There are some gruesome scenes also but to be expected and they were not overly descriptive. The only thing is that the romance was really thrown in and I almost wish there wasn't that thread of story in this book. I enjoy romance but it seemed too pushy and too fast. It just didn't seem to flow with the story line as well. All that to say, I did love to read how the characters grew and faced their challenges in each chapter. This is a great read and I look forward to more from Alford. 

Five Stars.
