    I had never read Linda Castillo?s mysteries featuring Kate Burkholder before reading A Gathering of Secrets. It reminded me of why I like mysteries. Kate grew up in an Amish family, and now is the chief of police in an Amish community. She no longer practices but has an understanding...

    A fire in a barn revealed some unsettling secrets in an Amish community. The story took a few twists and turns. It wasn't one of my favorites in the series, but it was really good. This book was very Kate centric. Many of the usual side characters were there but didn't play pivotal rol...

    I received a copy of this title via NetGalley. It does not impact my review. Sometimes when a series has been around for awhile, the characters and the stories seem to get a little stale. That is not the case with the Kate Burkholder series. We are ten books in and I still enjoy it ...

    Usually, when one thinks of Amish folks, the images conjured up are benign, if not a bit sentimental. Horse and buggy. Dark clothing. Kapps. Simple homes without electricity. Pennsylvania Deutsch. But Linda Castillo seems to always find the dark side of Amish life. They are, after all,...
