EXCERPT:…he’d kissed the girl he loved. It was their first, a moment he’d anticipated for weeks, and he’d been grinning like a fool since leaving the high school. That had been twenty minutes ago and already he couldn’t wait to see her again. Ashley Hodges was the sweetest, prettiest girl God had ever put on this earth, and Noah loved her more than his own life.

As perfect as all of that was, Noah wasn’t so blind that he couldn’t see the troubled waters ahead. His parents disapproved of him dating a non-Amish girl. They hadn’t come right out and said it, but he figured they were quietly hoping that he would break up with her once his rumspringa was over. As much as he hated the thought of disappointing them, that wasn’t going to happen.

ABOUT THIS BOOK: Seventeen year old Amish boy, Noah Kline, is struck by a car as he walks alongside a dark country road late one night in Painters Mill. Seriously injured, he lapses into a coma. Initially, Chief of Police Kate Burkholder believes it’s a straightforward hit and run, a driver that panicked and fled. But evidence soon emerges that the incident wasn’t accidental at all–and Kate uncovers a story of teenage passion and jealousy that may have led to attempted murder.

MY THOUGHTS: A quick read or, in my case, listen. There wasn’t much of a mystery here, but then just how much mystery can you pack into 67 pages?

A sweet story, but a forgettable one.
