Review: Among the Innocent by Mary Alford

About the Book
When Leah Miller's entire Amish family was murdered ten years ago, the person believed responsible took his own life. Since then, Leah left the Amish and joined the police force. Now, after another Amish woman is found murdered with the same MO, it becomes clear that the wrong man may have been blamed for her family's deaths.

As Leah and the new police chief, Dalton Cooper, work long hours struggling to fit the pieces together in order to catch the killer, they can't help but grow closer. When secrets from both of their pasts begin to surface, an unexpected connection between them is revealed. But this is only the beginning. Could it be that the former police chief framed an innocent man to keep the biggest secret of all buried? And what will it mean for Leah--and Dalton--when the full truth comes to light?

USA Today bestselling author Mary Alford keeps you guessing as two determined souls plumb the dark depths of the past in order to forge a brighter future--together.


I was in a bit of a reading slump but am happy to say that this book helped get me out of it. It pulled me right in from the very first paragraph and never let go. I was fully invested in these characters' lives and rooting them on as they hunted down the ruthless serial killer.

This was a fast-paced read full of danger and a creepiness that raised the hair on the back of my neck. Seriously, this bad guy was just flatout evil. I admired Leah's resiliency, strength, and bravery as she faced this villain from her past. And I loved how much of a support Dalton was for her. They made a great team.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys suspense with a little romance. While this case was solved, a new revelation at the end of the story leaves room for a sequel. One I'm really hoping we get.
