    1. If you like Amish/Mennonite stories, you will enjoy this book. If you like romantic suspense as well, you will really like this story.I liked the story. Ashley had to find peace with her brother's death and the journey she was on to find this was real and interesting. I enjoyed the development of the relationships.The suspense builds with a whole lot of action at the end. I expected more suspense/action from reading the book summary, so it was a bit slow for me.


    2. Ashley Walters has recently moved to Montezuma, Georgia, a small town with a sizeable Mennonite community. She is still mourning the death of her brother, Eric, who died ten years ago when she was eighteen, an unsolved crime that inspired her decision to join the police. One night, a callout to a store robbery introduces her to Bradley Yoder, a thirteen-year-old Mennonite boy who is searching for his birth mother following the death of his adoptive father. She befriends Bradley and his handsome [...]


    3. HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT by Amy Wallace is a good romance/suspense story set in Montezuma, Georgia, a small town with a Mennonite community. I enjoyed all the characters in this action-packed,fast paced story. With forgiveness,faith,and interesting characters you can not go wrong by reading “Hiding In Plain Sight”as the characters strugle to find peace,find a place to fit into the community,and find who is causeing the “accidents” at the Yoder farm. Ms. Wallace has a way of weaving a suspen [...]


    4. This is the first book by Amy Wallace that I've read, and I truly enjoyed it. A mixture of light romance and criminal suspense, it was a true page turner. However, besides the great plot, there was an underlying theme of personal control - how it manifests, why we don't give our lives over to God, and how it affects us. The story didn't just entertain me; it also made me think about the control issues I have in my own life. A great story with a great message. I'll definitely be reading book 2.

    6. Ashley Walters was a rookie on the Montezuma, Georgia police force. She couldn't let go of the past and wanted nothing more than her brother Eric's ten year old murder case solved. She seemed to only enjoy two things in her life - creating paintings and arresting criminals, like the one that killed her brother. She avoided romantic relationships. Then she was introduced to Patrick James, a marriage and family counselor. She was surprised to be attracted to him. Ashley also met another man, Jonat [...]


    7. I was approved by the publisher via NetGalley to read this book before its publishing date.The description attracted me:Written for women who desire action-packed suspense, romance, and an escape into the peaceful world of the Mennonites, Hiding in Plain Sight delves into the painful struggle to fit in and the search for peace that so often eludes our fast-paced lives.But what I read - 20% until I gave up - did not match this at all. It was stifling writing describing endless and extremely detai [...]

    10. I enjoyed this fast pace book. You won't be able to put it down until you get to the end and find out "Who".The story is about Ashley Walters who has joined the police force in Montezuma Georgia. She is trying to come to terms with the senseless murder of her brother Eric, some 10 years ago. She is now living in a devote Mennonite area, and the folks have taken to her.

    11. Beautiful, Engaging StoryAfter her brother's violent death, Ashley Walters became a police officer, so that others would not suffer the same fate. Now ten years later, Ashley moved to Moneptezuma to escape the crushing control of her parents. Montezuma is in the midst of a revitalization effort that threatens to leave the local Menenite community at odds with the rest of the community.

    12. This book has one of the best inspirational threads I've ever read. In fact, it's not even a separate thread -- the inspiration seeps into every page. Characters are all at different stages of their spiritual development and that adds fresh interest to an already captivating plot. But the suspense is stellar too and there are puzzle pieces galore and the fun of trying to figure out the mystery before Ashley and Patrick do. And let's not forget the romance. A hero who isn't afraid to pray for the [...]


    13. Officer Ashley Walters is running from tragedy. She finds a job in small town Montezuma and hopes to hide there to lick her wounds. But Emma and Patrick become her friends.

I didn't hate it and I didn't love it. But there were things I liked and disliked. The book seemed to move very slowly and things [...]


    14. This book gets at least 6 or 7 stars. This is a wonderful story of a Mennonite widow and her troubled adopted 13-year-old son, Bradley, and her struggle to keep the 100-acre dairy farm that was left to her when her husband died. The town council members also want her land for development. Since the death of Anna's husband, Peter, it appears that at least one potential developer is willing to go to any extreme to force the widow to sell her land.This book is also a bit of a character study, delvi [...]

Peace eludes Ashley until she realizes the answers she seeks aren't found in starting over but in returning to the simple truth that it's God who overcomes the world, not her.Written for women who desire action-packed suspense, romance, and an escape into th [...]


    17. This interesting book incorporates a Mennonite community and their beliefs, a police officer who is still grieving things from her past, a counselor, faith, romance, a troubled young teenage boy, a plan to help the community grow, and evil that results when not everyone is on board with what is planned. I enjoyed the characters, and the plot was not obvious and overtly predictable. I did feel like I should already know some additional background at times, especially about Jonathan; perhaps this [...]

    19. Police officer, Ashley Walters struggles with her faith as she attempts to protect the Mennonites in a small town in Georgia. She doesn't understand how they could be so forgiving when someone is bent on harming them. She lost her brother ten years ago and is still dealing with the pain and is afraid of losing another person she has learned to love. This is a lesson of allowing God to have control.


    20. The lead character is this book seemed very immature to be a grown woman and an officer of the law.Much of the back and forth which was suppose to be suspense, was too much and became tedious. I could not figure out why the setting was chosen as the back drop for such a story even of fiction as I know the area very well. Compared to The Defenders of Hope series this book falls short.


    21. I am really enjoying the "Amish mystery" books by the various authors. So I was looking forward to this one (free download on ). This book just didn't quite make it. The pieces were there but well, it just wasn't a satisfying read. Hope the next one in the "Place of Refuge" series is better.


    22. It was so cool reading a book that was set in a town close to home. Reading about the Harveys grocery store and other restaurants and stores I am familiar with. It was a great book and look forward to reading some more from this author!



    23. This was one of the better books I have read in a long time.It kept my interest, it had interesting characters, it brought together community, I can't say enough nice things about it.






    24. keep me wanting to read more to find out what was going to happen and made me realize that God controls everything
