This is Linda Castillo’s 5th mystery that takes place in Amish country and features Chief of Police Kate Burkholder. Kate left the Amish community as a teen and entered the police force. She returns to her community as Chief of Police and finds that even though she is not trusted by the Amish community she can certainly relate to them. There are lots of twists and turns (as usual) and just when you think it's all said and done, there's a blindside that few readers will see coming. This is a good series by an author who is gaining a great reputation for mainstream mysteries/police procedurals.

Sometimes life is about taking chances, about putting yourself out there even when you don't know what's going to come back at you.
