the scent of fear by susan j. reinhardt

First came The Moses Conspiracy, now comes….. The Scent of Fear.

The Zimmermans enjoy the tenuous peace in the wake of their hair-raising year battling the New Patriots. Unexpected visitors once again throw them into turmoil.

Jim Kenneman, Director of National Security, masterminded the plan to break up a hate group ravaging the Christian community. Now, his enemies are out to eliminate him. Should he make a run for it or stick by his tried-and-true negotiating skills?

Monty Addison, a topnotch operative, carried out his assignment in Bird-in-Hand. A plot to destroy his boss sends him on a mission. Without agency sanction, it may cost him everything – his career, his family, and maybe his life.

Dr. Abby Weaver strives to save infants and toddlers in Holmes County, Ohio. When she meets two strangers, she can’t get the tall, handsome one out of her mind. Will their paths intersect again or will dangerous times keep them apart?

The Scent of Fear is available at:

My Review

In my opinion, I found this book an interesting look into how the Amish community might be impacted in the future, especially in terms of health care and laws they are required to live by.  It is vastly different from any other book I have read about the Amish community, which made it very enjoyable to read.  I also think Reinhardt did a great job in speculating how the future of health care in our country might look, especially in view of the current upheaval of health care!  Very interesting!

I liked this book very much and would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of reading Amish fiction, but also to anyone who enjoys suspense.  Even though this is the second book in this series and I didn’t read the first book, I was able to get to know the characters and become interested in them very quickly.  The only thing that threw me off a little bit was the frequent name changes of the characters.  However, I was able to figure out which name went with which character and it didn’t detract from the book.  I look forward to reading another book by Reinhardt very soon.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are my own.
