Review: Covert Amish Christmas by Mary Alford

This was truly a non-stop action and suspense novel! I honestly could not imagine how these characters were going to make it out of this story alive. Knowing that this was a Love Inspired Suspense novel, I knew that they would make it out alive and that things would work out, however, I just couldn’t see how the author was going to manage it.

Along with all of the danger and constant pursuit that the characters faced, both Victoria and Aaron carried guilt in their lives. It was different guilt for both of them, but it weighed them down nonetheless. The themes of forgiveness and God’s love were prevalent throughout the story.

Covert Amish Christmas was a high energy read, with main characters who had a heart for doing what was right and a desire to do what would please God.

Mary Alford grew up in a small Texas town famous for, well not much of anything really. Being the baby of the family and quite a bit younger than her two brothers and her sister, Mary had plenty of time to entertain herself. Making up stories seemed to come naturally to her.

As a teen, Mary discovered Phyllis Whitney and Victoria Holt and knew instinctively that was what she wanted to do with her over-active imagination.
