In River Haven, a mysterious visitor brings two lonely hearts together…
Joanna Kohler treasures the independence her Amish quilt shop provides. She rarely leans on others, yet finding an injured woman on her property makes her grateful for the store owner next door, Noah Troyer. Calm and unflappable, Noah offers support. He also points out the strong resemblance between Joanna and the unconscious stranger…
Noah may admire Joanna, but the bishop’s daughter is out of reach. Though he’s made a good life, Noah still feels shadowed by the shame his father brought on the community. But it’s his duty to aid his lovely neighbor, especially when danger draws close. As he and Joanna unearth answers about her past, Noah will have to confront his own if he’s to have a chance at building a future with the woman he’ll love forever.
I would like to thank Netgalley for giving me this copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
When Joanna discovers a mysterious woman, unconscious on the stairs to her apartment, her life begins to change in ways she never would have imagined. Secrets long kept are revealed as the mystery about the identity of this woman remains concealed. Then, when it appears Joanna is now in danger, Noah can’t help but step up to protect her.
Joanna had a heart of gold. It was so sweet how no one was surprised at the way she cared so much about the stranger, even visiting her in the hospital when she was still in a coma. Joanna struggled with truths about herself and her family that had remained hidden until now.
Noah had struggled with feelings of inadequacy for most of his life. He felt that the community judged him for his father’s sins and interpreted everything based on that viewpoint. He also feared that he inherited his father’s violent nature.
Amish Protector is an enjoyable story with enough intrigue to keep me guessing.
