    I decided to review these together since it is a series However, I believe it would be okay to read them separately or out of order I believe you can understandof the back story if you read them in order, but I think they could easily be read on their own also and still be enjoyable.Back in high school, I remember a librarian taking me around the library trying to help me find books I was interested in I really hated reading when I was younger I just couldn t seem to find anything I li I decided to review these together since it is a series However, I believe it would be okay to read them separately or out of order I believe you can understandof the back story if you read them in order, but I think they could easily be read on their own also and still be enjoyable.Back in high school, I remember a librarian taking me around the library trying to help me find books I was interested in I really hated reading when I was younger I just couldn t seem to find anything I liked This librarian introduced me to mystery books and I finally found something I could read without wanting to put it down after a few pages.I hadn t read any mystery books in years though and these books reminded me how much I enjoy mysteries I really enjoyed these books because I also enjoy Christian Romance Love Stories I don t like the hard core, I m in the bedroom with you type romances, but I really enjoy thetoned down, real life romance stories, which is what the Love Inspired selections of books is all about This series is a great combination of the love story aspect along with mystery suspense I honestly did not want to put these books down, which is to say a lot for a book for me Even though I really enjoy reading, there are few books that I really just want to keep reading and reading and reading until the end without breaks I also enjoyed this series because it didn t give too much away I couldn t figure out the whole twist and or bad person too soon in the story, which is also great for me I don t like figuring out who did it in the second chapter of a book because then it slikely I ll put the book down not even finish it unless it s like a Columbo movie These books were all wonderful because they held my attention didn t give too much away were really page turners for me

    I think I actually preferred this one to the first book, Hide in Plain Sight, and I could definitely tell how Marta s writing had matured since the initial novel in this trilogy While I did have an inkling of who was behind the mystery in this one, the conclusion wasn t quite as sudden as in the first book, where the bad guy had given a big monologue that explained everything The climax of Buried Sins seemed a lotrealistic and things were revealed gradually over the final chapters Mar I think I actually preferred this one to the first book, Hide in Plain Sight, and I could definitely tell how Marta s writing had matured since the initial novel in this trilogy While I did have an inkling of who was behind the mystery in this one, the conclusion wasn t quite as sudden as in the first book, where the bad guy had given a big monologue that explained everything The climax of Buried Sins seemed a lotrealistic and things were revealed gradually over the final chapters Marta s definitely good at creating suspense and this was not a book that I wanted to put down, especially late at night I ll admit that, hey, Love Inspired Suspense books aren t always entirely original and could seem a bit repetitive if you read a lot of them at once, but Marta always puts a unique spin on her romantic suspense novels I loved the details about Caroline s jewellery and her passion for art, as well as the minor mystery surrounding the unusual quilt they found It was nice to catch up with the rest of the Unger family again in this book While I skipped 2 in the series I didn t feel like I d missed out on anything as these are all technically standalone books A very enjoyable read that kept me on my toes as I tried to figure out the mystery Not my favourite romantic suspense novel but I ll definitely be readingfrom Marta in the future, 8 10

    Great bookI love Marta Perry s books At least this series, since it is the first that I have read by her She is a great writer I was hooked on the book from chapter one She has enough mystery through out the book that keeps you reading The great thing is that the middle is just as intense to keep you interested It s not until the last chapter that she reveals who is behind the mystery, love that

    Buried Sins Hide in Plain Sight were both in the same book Both had lots of action This one had Andrea s sister Caroline who was the rebellious one and had been in lots of trouble in her life The family had not seen her for a long long time When she returns to the Amish country the family did not realize she was running away from problems that she brought with her Excellent reading I am saving it for you Tiffeny Buried Sins Hide in Plain Sight were both in the same book Both had lots of action This one had Andrea s sister Caroline who was the rebellious one and had been in lots of trouble in her life The family had not seen her for a long long time When she returns to the Amish country the family did not realize she was running away from problems that she brought with her Excellent reading I am saving it for you Tiffeny

    Marta is a great story teller I was kept guessing until the end I was partially right in guessing the culprit but couldn t guess it all till the very end

    A friend sent me this book in a box of books I think I have read at least one other book from The Three Sisters subseries though I couldn t tell you much about it if you asked I know the author s name is familiar also, so I am sure I ve read books by her before.The mystery was good I didn t anticipate all the twists and turns it took I too thought gambling when the man approached Caroline in Sante Fe I did finally guess one of the people behind it after an obscure clue caught my interest a A friend sent me this book in a box of books I think I have read at least one other book from The Three Sisters subseries though I couldn t tell you much about it if you asked I know the author s name is familiar also, so I am sure I ve read books by her before.The mystery was good I didn t anticipate all the twists and turns it took I too thought gambling when the man approached Caroline in Sante Fe I did finally guess one of the people behind it after an obscure clue caught my interest and I had sort of suspected the other person also but later discarded that for the most part I could understand Caroline s uneasiness around law enforcement It s always a bit nerve wracking to be around them, I think But after we find what happened to her at 16, it isunderstandable I was surprised that no one reached out to the grandparent when they couldn t find the mother, butI know little of how law enforcement for juveniles works, so that might be the norm plus it sounds like the officer involved wasn t on the straight and narrow like he should have been, so he might not have done everything in the by the book way.The history of the quilt was interesting to me I think I vaguely remember mention of quilts being used in the underground railroad, but I didn t realize there were specific patterns used also It makes sense I did guess that part slightly before the author revealed it, though I didn t guess how it tied in with the story until that was revealed by the author

    I think I liked this novel the best of the three in the Three Sister s Inn trilogy There wasaction and mystery than in the other books I will say that there are some similar plot details in it It is a quick, easy, safe read that provides good escape.

    I was tired of this series by the time I got to this book It was a cozy story, not overwhelmingly interesting and not suspenseful at all.
