The Covered Bridge by Karen Harper.  Eight years ago Benjamin Kline left his Amish community in Homestead, Ohio after being shunned for an act of violence against someone hurting his sister.  He returned home from Cincinnati where he is the prime suspect in a jewelry shop heist.  His neighbor Abigail Baughman is attracted to him as she was as a teen though nothing can come of it as he remains an outsider.  When she becomes the target of stalkers, he vows to protect the woman he loves even if that means never being allowed to return to the people.


Fallen in Plain Sight by Marta Perry.  Englisher Richard Strickland’s housekeeper Sarah Weaver finds him dead.  Chief Byler thinks he slipped down the stairs to his death, but Sarah thinks otherwise.  She tells her childhood friend Jacob Nast why she believes her late employer was murdered but the people do not go to the cops so she tells the estate lawyer instead.  When she becomes the target of stalkers, he vows to protect the woman he loves.


Outside the Circle by Patricia Davids.  Widower Isaac Bowman, accompanied by his mute ten years old daughter Ruby, leaves Indiana to start over in Mount Hope, Ohio.  Isaac prays the move helps his grieving child who has not spoken since her mom died three years ago.  Ruby’s teacher Lena Troyer is kind to both.  Deer poaching by trophy seekers leaves Lena in danger as she protests these acts of violence; Isaac vows to keep safe the woman who has brought back father and daughter to life.


These are three engaging Amish romantic suspense thrillers in which the three female protagonists are BFFs.
