I really like the conflict of Amish and Englisch thrown together in stories, so when I saw the description of Amish Covert Operation, I was eager to read it.

Poor Katie was only trying to find her brother and found herself being shot at and running for her life! How a good Amish man could get embroiled in such doings normally wouldn’t be believable yet author Meghan Carver made it work.

I liked that Katie was both strong and weak. She could climb trees well, knew when and how to stay silent, held on to her trust in the Lord, and yet fainted at the sight of her own blood.

The action and suspense were enjoyable, flowed well, and seemed feasible for the most part. There were a couple of situations that arose that didn’t entirely make sense yet they did not detract from the rest of the story.

While I appreciated that faith is important to the author and that she emphasized its importance in the story, Adam’s faith struggle and the way it was resolved seemed a little contrived. Katie had seemed to trust the Lord throughout the story, and then at the end it was said she really hadn’t been trusting Him, again seeming contrived.

There were also some continuity problems. For example, in the beginning, the description was given as in the months since Katie’s husband’s death. Yet later it is said to be four years after.

Readers of Amish fiction and suspense should consider adding Amish Covert Operation to their library.
