Byler’s second Lancaster Burning romantic thriller (after Fire in the Night) returns to Pennsylvania Dutch country to tell the story of Sarah Beiler, a devout young Amish woman longing for love. Many people in Sarah’s town have fallen prey to an arsonist who’s been burning barns; the victims include Sarah’s family, a young widow, and a newlywed couple who are just scraping by. In the midst of everything, Sarah is dealt a punishing blow: Matthew, the boy she has long loved, elopes to Haiti with someone else. Lee Glick is anxious to help Sarah overcome her heartache, but he’s not willing to play second fiddle to a man Sarah has made out to be perfect in her mind. The cliffhanger ending will leave series fans eager for the next installment. The clean romance and mild suspense are suitable for readers of all ages. (Oct.)
