What happens when the promise to protect and serve forces a police officer to do the unthinkable...?
Police Officer Ashley Walters is being stalked. Her wedding plans are interrupted by an attack on her fiance, and a detective is shot protecting her. Ashley is forced to flee for her own safety and the lives of those she loves.

Ashley finds refuge in a Mennonite community in Shipshewana, Indiana. But even in a peaceful town among gentle people she cherishes, danger stalks. All she has left is faith. But when faith fails, what survives?

Readers who love suspense coupled with the simplicity of the Mennonite life will eagerly devour book two in the dramatic Place of Refuge series.


Nowhere to Run is book two in The Place of Refuge Series.  Ashley Walters, a police officer by day, is engaged and planning her wedding with her best friend, Margo, and her parents.  However, she can’t shake the feeling that she is being watched.  When she starts receiving gifts from nowhere, she starts to get very concerned.  Then, her fiancé, Patrick, is attacked, which begins a string of attacks on those she loves.  She is whisked away in secret by her best friend who has plotted with her family to hide her, but the stalker is still able to find her and harass her, yet she has no idea who he is.  She is very frustrated that she has no control in the situation and begins to drift away from the Lord, wondering why He is putting her through this in the first place.
I enjoyed this book a lot more than book one.  It was interesting watching what Ashley had to go through in order to let go of her pride and self-reliance.  She was constantly trying to take control of the situation and take it upon herself to protect those she loved, but the more tried, the more things happened that showed her she had no control at all.  I read all but two chapters of this book in one day.  I had a hard time putting it down.  It’s a great read if you love Christian suspense books!
