When an unknown assailant attacks Sarah Gardner shortly after she moves to Apple Creek, she doesn't know which of her fears has come true. Is someone trying to tell her that meddling strangers aren't welcome in this tight-knit Amish community, or has her abusive ex-boyfriend found her? The social worker doesn't want to run again, not when she's finally putting down roots. But she may not have a choice, unless deputy sheriff Nick Jennings can protect her. The former army ranger knows that Sarah has secrets…and women with secrets only bring heartache. But serving the community is Nick's job, and he can't turn away a woman in peril—especially when he can't imagine a future without her.

My thoughts: PLAIN PROTECTOR is a older romantic suspense that just happened to cross my path (a friend, not the author) sent it to me.  Since it is set in Amish country, it is considered Amish, but neither the heroine or the hero are Amish and the Amish is portrayed as unfriendly (and some of them are) and having problems (and some of them do.) 

Sarah believes she knows who is behind the attacks and refuses to consider anyone else, even though I had immediate suspicions of others. Nick is a sweetheart, but he words things like demands and Sarah's back goes ramrod straight and she rejects everything he says just on the principal of the thing. And even though her mother is sick, Sarah wants to run away everytime something goes wrong. 

This is LIS and the faith message is very very weak (she works at a church as a social worker) and he doesn't go at all, but it is clean fiction and as per usual with LIS you know she is going to be kept on the run and he struggling to keep her safe from an attacker. 

I'm not going to say more because I don't want to leave a spoiler.

I did get this free from a friend as I said before.  All opinions are my own and I was not required to write a review.

Definitely disappointing with a weak faith message along with the hero and heroine not being Amish.
