AMONG THE INNOCENT by Mary Alford, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise

Leah Miller was Amish until her whole family was murdered and she escaped. The killer is back to taunt her ten years later. She is now a police woman in the same village in the Montana mountains. A new police chief, Dalton, has taken over the station, just as a new murders take place.

This was a fast-paced thriller of a story with many threads to untangle. The killer is creepily diabolical and uses innocent teen girls to terrorize Leah. As the threads come together, Dalton and Leah grow closer and depend on each other. Then find a surprising past connection.

One special character was Marge, Leah’s adoptive mother who suffers with dementia. The author gave us some insight into the condition. Another clue could be what Marge cannot remember!

If you want a page turner, give this one a try. It is well worth the reading.

BackCover Blurb:
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.
