Hide in Plain Sight - Marta Perry

Summary from Good Reads: She couldn't turn her back on her family in their time of need.  So when her sister was injured, financial expert Andrea Hampton traded the big city for Amish country to help turn her grandmother's house into an inn.

But life with the Plain People took a treacherous turn when a string of accidents and pranks threatened her family. Someone didn't want the secrets the old house harbored to come to light. Trusting anyone— even the handsome carpenter who seemed so genuine—was a battle for Andrea, but her life depended on her ability to find the truth.

Andrea did not want to come to Amish country to help her grandmother and sister get the house finished for the grand opening of the inn.  When she arrives, the family is hit again and again with trouble.  Someone does not want this inn to open.  Thankfully, Cal is renting from Grams and lives in the barn.  Andrea relied on Cal for help and created and bond through it all.  In the end, Andrea finds a strong family bond, a new friendship and God while helping the family through several tragedies.

This is the first book that I have read from Marta Perry and Harlequin Love Inspires novels.  I was very pleased with the story!  For me, it was not the typical Amish stories that I am used to since the story took place in Amish country and the neighbors were Amish.  I am more used to having more Amish characters and culture than this book provided.  I am looking forward to reading the other two books in this series, A Christmas to Die For and Buried Sins.
