I loved this book. I've wondered for quite a while what the attraction was to these Amish books. While at a recent romance writers conference, this book was given away in our goodie bags. Now I understand why Amish books are so popular. I'm buying the next one as soon as my new Kindle arrives in the mail.

I really enjoyed this book.

They strike up a conversation and once they go their seperate ways - Remy pitches his story to the paper. The paper send her to Lancaster Country for a follow up to the murder of Adam's parents.
Afraid of how Adam will react to her being a reporter she friends the family and ends up stranded with them for a few days due to a horrible storm.
While there they fall in love but once Adam learns the truth - can he forgive her.....

Rosalind Lauer invites you into an Amish home and you almost feel like you're Remy as a guest turned family. I sometimes had a hard time with Adam's feelings and he seemed so much older than twenty-four, but I guess that's what suddenly having to be the head of a large family will do to you. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves Amish fiction or is curious about it. ( )

This was my first Rosalind Lauer book but not my last. This was a great book. I usually don't care for the murder mystery but it was intertwined with a great story. Can't wait to read Sadie's story. ( )

Book description
As a budding journalist with a major newspaper, Remy McCallister is eager to prove herself. While investigating an unsolved crime, Remy winds up in the tightly woven Amish community of Lancaster County, the last place she would ever expect to find herself. The story leads her to Adam King and his ten younger siblings, who are trying to sustain their warm, loving home in the wake of the murder of their parents. Although Remy tries to remain professional, she is captivated by the Kings. With her own mother gone and her father disengaged from their relationship, Remy longs for a home and a family just like that of these good, simple people.

Suddenly patriarch of his large family, Adam struggles to do the right thing for his siblings, his community, and his God. He neither wants nor needs the complications that spirited Remy brings. But as much as he tries to push her away, even as he counts all the ways this lovely outsider cannot possibly remain in his world—or in his heart—the wondrous light she shines upon his troubled soul cannot be denied. Adam can only pray for the strength and the faith to get this Englisher girl out of their lives for good.

Snowbound with the Kings, Remy experiences the wonder and the chores of a simple winter among the Plain People, as well as the friendship of their warm community. When her peaceful interlude ends, does she dare to reveal a killer in their midst, knowing that she may lose the love of this special family and this remarkable man?
