That said, these do mostly get print-published first. Except for that Carina Press digital-only Amish romantic suspense I've seen as the lone category occupant on their website.
If you're talking about In Plain View, the main characters are not Amish, and the Amish aren't romanticized. Part of the crime takes place among the Amish, however. I thought this romantic suspense novel refreshingly different from almost all of the Amish romance out there.
