A Rose Revealed - Book Review

I recently received a few books to review from Harvest House Publishers, but I'm only going to review them one at a time so that I don't overwhelm you with books!  I'm from a family that absolutely loves books...and I could read and write reviews on books all day long...but I'm pretty sure you all appreciate it when I mix it up a little!

A Rose Revealed by Gayle Roper
"A Rose Revealed" is part of The Amish Farm Trilogy ("A Stranger's Wish" and "A Secret Identity" are the other books in the trilogy).  "A Rose Revealed" starts out following the life of Rose Martin, who became a nurse because she wanted to help people.  She knew that part of her job included death, but she never realized she would be dealing with a murder case, especially not one so close to her.   Rose gets drawn into the murder case, and has to hide, and she finds the perfect hiding place on the Zook's farm with the Amish Zook family.  She finds the loving family she has always wanted there, except for Jake, who seems to resent her no matter what she does.

My Review
I haven't read the first 2 books, but that didn't make this one any less enjoyable.  I absolutely loved reading this book.  The story line was great, and not as predictable as most mystery books.  I thought the ending was great as well.  Reading this book has made me want to go back and read the first 2 books in the trilogy.  I like romance novels, but they aren't my favorite, but mix it with a good mystery and it is very enjoyable!  The book is set in Lancaster County, and the author pays great attention to detail when it comes to the lives of the Amish.
