Review of Covert Amish Christmas by Mary Alford


Fleeing to Amish country

might be the only way to survive Christmas…

Hiding in Amish country, former CIA agent Victoria Kauffman’s determined to find evidence to catch the corrupt agents who killed her partner. But when her Christmas refuge is discovered, the sole person she can trust is Amish widower Aaron Shetler. With ruthless—and dangerously powerful—enemies after them, Victoria must use all her training to make sure they live through the holidays.

My Review

Victoria, a CIA agent who receives information on a conspiracy within the agency is trying to understand the proof left to her by another agent who died.  On the run, she flees to the Amish community and gains the help of Aaron.  Aaron and some of his friends and family try to keep her safe as she runs from her assailants. 

The story is highly suspenseful with lots of twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat. Having Aaron be Amish gave another side to the storyline that I normally don't see in a suspense novel. His struggle with violence in order to protect Victoria showed true courage and conviction.  Victoria is carrying a secret that she keeps from Aaron that also adds mystery to the story.

Covert Amish Christmas is a page-turner steeped with intrigue, compassion, forgiveness, and faith.  The blossoming romance amongst all the turmoil gave another interesting quality to the story. 

The inspirational and uplifting message brought the story to life for me.  Very enjoyable and exciting read. Highly recommended.
