Under siege in Amish country…
She must fight for their lives.
Gunshots shatter Willa Lambright’s placid Montana evening—and that’s before she discovers on-the-run lawman Mason Shetler on her doorstep.

Now the US marshal’s returned with an injured partner, a young witness he must protect at all costs…and vicious Mafia agents dead set on making sure none of them survive.

I am a huge fan of Amish fiction, and while this book was a quick read with a satisfying ending, it was a little outside of my "happily ever after" zone.
I liked the characters- Willa, an Amish woman taking care of her ill mother and Mason, a formerly Amish US marshal protecting a young girl who witnessed a terrible crime. I think the tension between the two of them was believable and made for a great story. However, the whole bit about the organized crime assassins was a stretch for me. It consumed more of the story than I would have preferred. However, it was pretty exciting!
I’m a sweet romance gal, so I think that colored my review of this book. I would have preferred more internal struggle than gunfire. However, it was compelling enough for me to read in two sittings! For those who are into action-packed thrillers, this book would be perfect for you.
I received an advanced reader's copy from the publisher through Celebrate Lit in exchange for my honest review.

More from Mary
When I first heard of the title for my latest Love Inspired Suspense, I smiled. Dangerous Amish Showdown reminds me of the old westerns where the good guys face off with the bad guys and always win. As a child I loved watching them, mostly because my dad loved them so much, and yes, a big draw for me besides sharing the time with him, was seeing the good guys win. It’s what I try to put into every single book I write, and it’s exactly what happens in Dangerous Amish Showdown.
Lately, I find myself reminiscing a lot about childhood things such as watching old westerns with my dad, and smiling at those simpler times.
In Dangerous Amish Showdown, it takes coming back to his simple childhood Amish community for Mason Shetler to realize how special that life once was for him. Through the courage found in a little girl who has lost everything, and the strength of a woman whose future is uncertain, Mason discovered what he had been searching for all along.
I truly hope you enjoy Mason and Willa’s fight to protect young Samantha and the love they find along the way. And I hope their happy ending leaves you with a smile on your face, and maybe takes you back to a simpler time in your life.
