Peace Book Review

I was excited to get the extra book in the series at the library on my reserve shelf.  Peace: A Crittenden County Christmas Novel (Secrets of Crittenden County) by Shelley Shepard Gray was a stand alone book that was meant to follow the rest of the Crittenden County mystery series.  It was a great extra ending to the already ended series and I was glad that she added the extra little bump to the series and closure for the characters!!

Beth Byler has a secret. Ever since she met Englischer Chris Ellis while helping out at the Yellow Bird Inn, she can't stop thinking about him. She knows a relationship could never go anywhere—Chris was working undercover in Crittenden County as a DEA agent. That meant he faced danger daily and carried a gun, making him completely unsuitable for an Amish woman like herself. But she knew he felt the attraction, too. It was the reason he left so suddenly, promising never to see her again.  Then, three days before Christmas, while Beth is taking care of the inn, Chris returns. This time, he is bleeding and in need of a place to hide. Against her better judgment, Beth takes him in and tends to his wounds. She also promises to keep his presence a secret. Before long, it becomes clear that nothing between them has changed but you need to pick up this book and find out for yourself what happens!!
Quite possibly my favorite book in the series because it was mainly just two characters through the whole book so you got to know lots about both of them.  Of course, it wouldn't have been nearly as good if we didn't get a chance to know all the other characters through the other books in the series.  The rest of the whole series was in the mystery section and this was in the fiction section because the mystery was solved in the last book.  I don't think that I liked the Amish mystery as much as the regular fiction so this brought the characters and the author back to what I like best about the Amish fiction books.  I hope that you check this one out if you haven't read it, even if you haven't read other books in this series because it is a great book all on it's own.  Check it out at your local library or bookstore soon!!!
