's review

it was amazing

As a teenager, Amish-raised Kate Burkholder rebelled against the order, the rules, and just about everything else. This rebellion included a relationship with a boy, her first love, Jonas Bowman. Now as Police Chief in Painters Mill, Ohio, she learns of the discovery of the skeletal remains of Pennsylvania Amish bishop Ananias Stoltzfus, who had gone missing over a decade earlier. Worse, Jonas is arrested for the killing. Kate is compelled to investigate, to determine if the boy she loved was capable of such an act. The rules of the community she finds are even more strict than those she had long ago escaped, and in Pennsylvania, she had no jurisdiction. As she digs into the case, she uncovers a dark conspiracy surrounding the deceased bishop. As the list of possible suspects grows, a list that could easily include Jonas, there are those who wish to keep the past buried and will do whatever is necessary to protect their secrets, even if it means killing Kate. Another great addition to this compelling series.
