Undercover Amish

Detective Olivia Mast would rather run through gunfire than return to her former Amish community in Unity, Maine, where she killed her abusive husband in self-defense.

Since the community will not pursue justice or answer questions from the police, Olivia begrudgingly dons her old prayer kapp and covertly investigates a murder there while protecting the man she dated as a teen: Isaac Troyer, a potential target. The handsome and quirky cabinet maker falls in love with her once again, unaware that she carries a 9mm under her skirt. After another murder, some deadly pranks and a kidnapping, Olivia realizes she needs Isaac’s help most of all.

When Olivia tells Isaac she is a detective, will he be willing to break Amish rules to help her arrest the killer?

Olivia values one important rule over all others: never let emotions, especially love, get in the way of the job. But as the body count rises and she starts falling for Isaac again, she might just end up breaking her own rule.
