Publisher's Summary

Some Amish communities aren't so cozy.

The death of a teenage Amish girl in a cornfield looks like an accident, but sheriff Serenity Adams suspects foul play. To solve the murder, she must investigate the nearby Amish community with the help of a man who was shunned years ago.

At first glance, the case seems obvious. The poor girl was probably accidently shot during hunting season, but when the elders of the Amish community and even the girl's parents react with uncaring subdued behavior, Serenity becomes suspicious. As she delves deeper into the secretive community that she grew up beside, she discovers a gruesome crime from the past that may very well be related to the Amish girl's shooting.

Serenity's persistence leads her to a stunning discovery that not only threatens to destroy her blossoming romance with Daniel Bachman, but may even take her life in the end.

    "A bit too obvious"

    An interesting topic, likeable characters but just not enough depth or intrigue for me. Though I did manage to listen to all of it.

    Story
    "Awful"

    Childish and immature. Decent enough basic story line but the execution all the way around was just terrible.

    Story
    "Small Town Indiana and the Amish"

    The book had the makings of a great story . . . but a couple of things ruined it for me . . . first off, the negative portrayal of the Amish as a people, with no respect given for their faith or way of life, and secondly, the language and unprofessional attitude of the smart-mouthed sheriff, Serenity Adams . . . who is one minute focused on finding a killer, and the next minute acting like a teenager infatuated with ex-Amish heart throb, Daniel Bachman. So much of the tale just did not jive . . . young Amish girls "fooling around" shamelessly with first one boy then another . . . and Amish parents heartlessly burying their dead children . . . there's a difference between being quiet, private people and being callous and cold . . . none of the beautiful hard working, steadfast qualities of the Amish are depicted here . . . instead something sinister and evil is implied . . . the writing is amateurish and lacks depth . . . I finished the book, but will not be going on to the others in the series . . .

    "Murder and the amish?"

    The narrator did A good job. The book was written well and interesting. I kept trying to guess what was going to happen next in this book, but I was always surprised in the end.

    "Intriguing Storyline"

    This was my first K.A. Hopkins novel and I was very pleased with it. The details of the Amish culture were very interesting and eye opening. The storyline wove characters intricately together so skillfully that I had no difficulty picturing each one in my mind's eye. I'm excited to begin the next novel in the series.
