Almost a decade has passed since Rachel Mason eloped to marry Ronnie over the objections of her Amish family and community.  She never returned to home in Deer Run until now.  Now a widow, Rachel, accompanied by her nine year old daughter Mandi, comes home to face communal ostracizing as no one including her Daad and Maam welcome her or her child except for her fourteen year old brother Benjamin Weaver.

 

Her late husband’s BFF Colin McDonald knows he owes Rachel for failing to be there for his deceased buddy though he believes she will not welcome him.  However, a troubled Benjamin tells his sister and Colin a secret that haunts the teen and makes him a target of the killer.  The estranged pair unites to keep Benjamin safe.

 

The first Watcher in the Dark is a taut romantic suspense starring a brave heroine who though a pariah within her family will do anything to keep her child and brother safe.  The key to this strong Amish thriller is the family and romance subplots support the suspense as the danger remains the prime focus.  Readers will enjoy Home By Dark as a clever predator implements his plans for Deer Run.
