When widowed doctor Ella Jacobsen is attacked and left for dead in her children's clinic, the peace she's found in Georgia's Amish country is shattered. Someone is after something in her clinic and wants her out of the way…but what are they looking for? Ella knows only that her life is in the hands of army special agent Zach Swain. Zach can't resist the vulnerable but headstrong Ella, who stares down danger to care for the people she loves. With one look, the loner soldier goes from investigator to protector. To save Ella, he must uncover the secrets that swirl around the idyllic community. And he needs to do it fast, because Ella is running out of time.

My thoughts:  PLAIN TRUTH is a suspense set in Amish country and involved a medical doctor specializing in diseases of the Amish.  The suspense was high and the victim was uncertain. Were they after the mother, the twins, or the doctor?  I had my suspicious who-dun-it, but I was wrong and the real "bad guy" surprised me. 

The Amish talk rather stilted in this book (not at all like the Amish I know!) and there are some untrue facts or generalizations about the Amish, but this is suspense first and foremost, set in an Amish community and the main characters are not Amish so I suppose it could be the characters' point of view about the Amish.

I enjoyed reading this book and trying to figure out who-dun-it.  

I was given a copy free from a friend (not by the publisher or author) and all opinions are my own.
