Twenty-year-old Nellie Augusta Lourdes Monroe is a fiery red-headed force to be reckoned with and an absolutely hilarious young woman. Nellie works at a golf course but yearns to be a Private Investigator. Her best friend in the world is her Nona who is suffering from some type of dementia and knows who Nellie is one day, but not the next. Her next best friend is, Matt, who has loved Nellie since they were young children but she doesn't even see that. Amos, a recent escapee from the nearby Amish order has learned that Nellie is a P.I. and asks for her help. He left behind is beloved Katie and recently learned she about to marry someone else and needs Nellie to find out if she truly loves this man or is her heart still with him? Nellie lies to her college Professor to get into the Amish Schroder family. She dons the traditional Amish garb, infiltrates the family and gains their trust in order to find and learn about Katie. However, all that is going to blow up in her face with heart-wrenching consequences. Will Nellie find Katie and once caught red-handed, can she explain and apologize her way out of trouble with the Schroder family and her Professor? Ms. Stuart has created completely believable characters and I absolutely adored Nellie! The story grabbed me from the first page and kept me reading until the end. I read the entire book in a few hours I just couldn't put it down. I'm looking forward to reading more of Ms. Stuart's work. April 3, 2011
