Love Finds You in Sugarcreek Ohio


By Serena B. Miller

A mysterious outsider casts a long shadow on Ohio’s Amish country. Policewoman Rachel Troyer has always looked after her three elderly Amish aunts, proprietors of a farmhouse inn near Sugarcreek, Ohio. The idyllic town is popular with tourists, who come to sample its famous Amish goods. But one thing is clear to Rachel — Joe Matthews is no tourist. When the bearded stranger lands on her aunts’ doorstep, begging shelter for himself and his young son, Rachel is suspicious.

Will she be able to uncover Joe’s secrets despite her aunts’ — and her own — growing affection for him?


Rachel Troyer is a police officer who is just trying to look out for the welfare of her three elderly Amish aunts. There’s a problem. They just won’t cooperate. How can you expect these women who have worked hard all their live to slow down and relax a little? They don’t know how to relax.

Rachel finally convinces them to close down their bed and breakfast, but they refuse to promise not to take in strays. Along comes Joe and his son – down on their luck from the looks of them. Of course, the sisters put them up overnight in one of their small cabins.

Joe and Bobby stay on longer than overnight, and this has Rachel confused and a bit steamed. The aunts refuse to throw them out. They are sure the Lord sent the two so the sisters could take care of them. Rachel thinks Joe is a con artist and doesn’t trust him.

Eventually Rachel has to admit her feelings for Joe are growing (and that she’s fallen totally in love with little Bobby). But she still doesn’t trust him. She knows he’s hiding a secret. It gets very interesting when she finds out the secret.

I’ve enjoyed all the Love Finds You books that I’ve read, but I especially grew attached to the people in Sugarcreek. Thank you, Ms Miller.
