Page-Turning Romantic Suspense Set Against the Backdrop of a Small Mennonite Town
Lizzie Engel is used to running away. At eighteen, she left her Mennonite hometown, her family, and her faith with plans never to return. Five years later, Lizzie finds she'll have to run again. False accusations at her job, a stalker, and a string of anonymous threatening letters have left her with no other options. This time, however, her escape is back to Kingdom, her hometown.
As Lizzie becomes reacquainted with Kingdom, she realizes she may not have left her Mennonite roots and her faith as firmly in the past as she thought. She draws on the support of Noah Housler, an old friend, as she hides out and attempts to plan her next steps.
When it becomes painfully clear that the danger has followed Lizzie to Kingdom, suspicions and tensions run high, and she no longer knows who to trust. With her life and the lives of those she loves at risk, Lizzie will have to run one last time--to a Father whose love is inescapable.

Goodreads Summary

Lizzie, the main character, will interest the reader because she tends to appear as if she is running away from any problems. She left her Mennonite town when she was younger. At her current job, she runs into trouble. Lizzie might have a stalker and probably should get away from the situation. Where does she go? She travels back to her hometown and hopes for the best.

Being in her hometown, Kingdom, is not easy for Lizzie. There are plenty of buried memories and people that force Lizzie to relive her past to some extent. Her father is not accepting of her to the point of cold awkwardness. Lizzie has a few friends, but not many. Her daughter Charity has to adjust to a new home. There is one man that changes her opinion of Kingdom, albeit slowly. Noah is the type of man that many girls would be happy to call theirs. Charismatic, somewhat gruff, and strong, he just might be what Lizzie is looking for. Their relationship is one of the best parts of the novel. They don't experience "insta-love," their relationship grows over time. The mystery behind the stalker's identity is interesting and not that easy to guess. The reader will certainly be surprised to learn who the stalker is and there are more than a few twists to keep the reader busy before the end. The book is well-written and the characters are enough to keep the reader flipping pages. This book is recommended to adult readers.
