Found: The Secrets of Crittenden County, Book Three by Shelley Shepard Gray

Detective Luke Reynolds is still looking for Perry's killer.  He won't give up until he finds him...

Avon Inspire and Edelweiss have let me read this whole series in ebook form (thank you).  It's an excellent Amish series and I was really looking foward to this final book.  It did not disappoint me.  This book was just published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

Jacob is carrying some secrets about the last time he saw Perry.  He's conflicted by what he knows happened and how Perry was found.  He's also in conflict because he's attracted to Perry's sister, Deborah.  He's afraid he's falling love with her but thinks she will hate him when she knows the truth.

Amish people are very self-contained and they work very hard on doing and speaking no harm.  Someone has fallen off the path in this village.  Luke is doing his best to find out who it may be.

I was beginning to wonder if we would ever know.  The Amish keep their secrets.  Murder is not something can be condoned, even by other family members.  I found myself amazed at the identity of the killer.  I had no suspicions about that character until towards the end of the book.

The whole series is well written.  The Amish aspect is interesting, there are several romances growing, and the mystery is exactly that:  a mystery.  Why not grab the series and settle back for a good country visit with a bit of intrigue in it?

Happy reading.

I have read one Amish series book and it too was a murder mystery...and boy was it good. Will definitely be checking out more Amish themed books, especially this series as it sounds very interesting. Thanks for the heads up.

I read the first two books in this series and loved them! Now I'm just waiting for "Found" to come out to figure out who did what and who ends up with who.
