Blog Tour: Hiding In Plain Sight (Review)

Mixing together a bit of mystery, into a story set in rural Georgia, Amy Wallace has created a new series of books featuring her signature "dark chocolate" suspense.

In Hiding In Plain Sight, Wallace creates a world where Ashley Walters, a "weary" but artistic and caring police office struggles to solve a variety of issues - in both her personal and professional life.

This world also includes a Mennonite community, which re-introduces Walters to the peace found within a relationship with Jesus.

Through it all, Walters learns to trust God (and people) again, as she heals from the past.

This is the second book (and series) I've read written by Wallace. I love her style - which mixes real life and suspense. This novel, the first in the Place of Refuge Series, has a solid story line.

On the scale of one to five, I give it a four. It's well worth the read (although, her book "Enduring Justice" remains my favorite of her books so far.)

More About The Book
(From The Publisher)
Secrets of the Heart Never Stay Hidden
World weary and down to a threadbare faith, Police Officer Ashley Walters seeks refuge in Montezuma, Georgia, a quiet town with a thriving Mennonite community. Even in the peaceful surroundings, she can't escape the haunting memories of crime-ridden Atlanta.

Then handsome Marriage and Family Counselor Patrick James partners with a teenaged Mennonite runaway to offer Ashley a second chance at redemption…and romance. But when violence erupts over revitalization plans that pit the Montezuma and Mennonite communities against each other, Ashley is forced to stop the person responsible—even if he is someone she's come to love.

As God unlocks the secrets darkening Ashley's heart, she must answer two crucial questions: Who is in control? And can she trust Him?
