AMONG THE INNOCENT by Mary Alford, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"You'll always belong to me" he had whispered.

"The scar on her neck was a constant reminder of how close to death she'd come" . . . and on the cusp of that horrible night's ten-year anniversary, the nightmare had re-surfaced. He was back; the voice forever embedded in her memories, taking advantage among the innocents living through-out their peaceful Amish community.

Police officer Leah Miller is desperate to find answers after a lovely young woman is found brutally murdered inside the Miller family's abandoned barn. Teaming with the new police chief, Dalton Cooper, the two immediately begin to search the area for clues as to the identity and whereabouts of the killer; but to no avail. He strikes again.

Reading about serial killers is never easy, although interesting in a convoluted kind of way. As Leah and Dalton dig through the evidence and confront disturbing incidents from the past, they also begin to believe that God has a plan for their future, if and when . . .

"what had begun ten years ago was quickly coming to a head" . . .  "and she wasn't sure that she was ready" . . .  be prepared . . . the end of this story is not at all what you might expect in the beginning.

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.
