I'm pleased to announce that VANISH IN PLAIN SIGHT, Book 2 in the Amish Suspense series, will be out in bookstores June 1st. I hope you'll look for it.

Here's a bit about the story:

Since she was a little girl, Marisa Angelo has been haunted by the image of her mother walking away, suitcase in hand, to return to her Amish roots. Marisa and her Englischer father never saw or heard from her again. Now Marisa has received a shocking call from police. Her mother's bloodstained suitcase was found hidden inside the wall of a Pennsylvania Dutch farmhouse.

Desperate for answers, Marisa heads to Lancaster County. But no one—not the police or Marisa's tight-lipped Amish relatives—can explain what happened to her mother. Only one man is as determined as Marisa to unravel the mystery—Link Morgan, the handsome ex-military loner who found the suitcase in the house he inherited from his uncle. Now both Link's and Marisa's family member are implicated in the decades-old disappearance.

The secret lies somewhere in the quaint Amish settlement. But someone will do anything to ensure the truth remains hidden forever.

  2. Thanks so much for writing, Gladys. I'm putting a signed bookmark and my brochure of Pennsylvania Dutch recipes in the mail to you.


  3. Okay,,,that's it I'm going to start "Murder in Plain Sight" RIGHT NOW!!! You know what? Reading Amish Fiction really inspires me, as a Christian to live out my faith simply and as a homemaker to keep a welcoming place for my family.
    Thanks for your work.
