Page-Turning Romantic Suspense Set Against the Backdrop of a Small Mennonite Town

Lizzie Engel is used to running away. At eighteen, she left her Mennonite hometown, her family, and her faith with plans never to return. Five years later, Lizzie finds she'll have to run again. False accusations at her job, a stalker, and a string of anonymous threatening letters have left her with no other options. This time, however, her escape is back to Kingdom, her hometown.

As Lizzie becomes reacquainted with Kingdom, she realizes she may not have left her Mennonite roots and her faith as firmly in the past as she thought. She draws on the support of Noah Housler, an old friend, as she hides out and attempts to plan her next steps.

When it becomes painfully clear that the danger has followed Lizzie to Kingdom, suspicions and tensions run high, and she no longer knows who to trust. With her life and the lives of those she loves at risk, Lizzie will have to run one last time--to a Father whose love is inescapable.

The story grabbed me from the beginning and kept me reading to see how things would work out for Lizzie. Good character development as Lizzie struggles with emotions from her past and the problems she encounters in the present. I found I was disappointed by the ending, though. It was too abrupt and I would have liked to see the heroine more involved. The very last chapter had too much "telling" of what had happened, rather than showing it in a scene. It also came across as too light-hearted considering one of the things that came to light. Overall, though, I enjoyed the book very much and look forward to the next one in this new series.
