Vanish in Plain Sight

HQN: Harlequin. (Amish Suspense, Bk. 2). Jun. 2011. c.384p. ISBN 9780373775767. pap. $7.99. ROMANTIC SUSPENSE
Planning to renovate his late uncle's house in Lancaster, PA, and then move on to California, engineer Link Morgan, fresh from a disastrous mission in Afghanistan, finds hidden in the walls of the old building the suitcase of a woman who disappeared 23 years earlier. For freelance illustrator Marisa Angelo, the bag just might hold the answers she's been looking for since her mother walked out of her life. Unfortunately, someone doesn't want the truth to come to light and will do anything to prevent it. Although their pasts make them wary of responsibility and relationships, Link and Marisa realize that their only hope is to work together, never thinking that it will bring them closer in other ways, as well.
VERDICT Reprising a number of characters from Murder in Plain Sight, Perry skillfully continues her chilling, deceptively charming romantic suspense series with a dark, puzzling mystery that features a sweet romance and a nice sprinkling of Amish culture. Note: This is not an inspirational romance, but owing to the setting, it might appeal to those readers, as well. Perry divides her time between Pennsylvania and the South Carolina coast.
