Debbie Maynes van brunt | 18 comments I love the Kate Burkholder series of books by Linda Castillo. Not your typical Amish Romance fiction for sure! But really good!


message 2: by Melissa (new)

Melissa | 127 comments I love that series! I've read them all including the short story Long Lost.


message 3: by Debbie (new)

Debbie Maynes van brunt | 18 comments Me, too. Did you see the movie of the 1st book on Lifetime with Neve Campbell? It was really good!


message 4: by Julie (new)

Julie Kramer These are suspense stories at their finest, with just enough hope to offset the darkness.

Natalie (creativecountry0407gmailcom) | 1054 comments @Debbie: When was the movie aired? Do you know when it might be shown again? Despite having Lifetime, I was not aware of them doing a movie for Pray for Silence.

Janie  R. (janierfreeman) Certainly a Linda Castillo fan here.

Melissa | 127 comments I didn't know about the movie, but I would like to see it. I wonder if it's being replayed or on DVD?

I was wondering myself. I will post if I find out anything.

Debbie Maynes van brunt | 18 comments The Lifetime movie was Sworn to Silence and will air again on Jan 22 on the Lifetime Movie Network. It does not say what year though, as the movie was shown January 2013. I would watch the listings. There was an article that came out when the movie was airing this past January, that indicated it might become a TV series, but I have seen nothing regarding that since.

Debbie Maynes van brunt | 18 comments Oops! The title of the Lifetime Movie is An Amish Murder, based upon Sworn to Silence.

Melissa | 127 comments I will have to check when it gets closer and set it up to tape. I really want to see it. Too bad if it's not going to be made into a series.

Jeff | 1 comments I saw the movie when it first aired. I had Kate pictured all wrong. More like Kate Smith in my mind. I hav eread all published to date and all through me for a loop. Hard to say if I had a favorite. I learned a new term I had never heard before "Manure Management"!!!!!!

I haven't read any of the series but they are on my list. If I read the short story first will it mess with the series?


message 21: by Debbie (new)

Debbie Maynes van brunt | 18 comments Not really. It uses the same characters in all of the books, so they have developed over time. The short story is good, but doesn't do the series justice.


message 22: by Melissa (new)

Melissa | 127 comments I watched the Lifetime movie recently. I liked it and I thought it was very true to the book.

Glad you enjoyed it! I hope they do a sequel!

Rowena (rphilbeck) | 12 comments Oh I'm such a fan!!! I am waiting too for the new one to come out in the Spring. Yes, I did ready the short story on the Kindle. It was really good too!! Karen Harper is also a good author as well. Lots of twists and turns in her books too.
