I so much wanted to love it – and I did‼️
But to be honest the plot was quite obvious this time. It was not badly made, not really, because I didn‘t see the final twist coming, but overall my first guess of who the criminal is was right. I still love the storytelling and meeting all the characters (Pickles ❤️) I already know again but am not convinced by the case this time. So compared to the first “Kate Burkholder” I encountered, this lost.

ljuliel These books take place near where I‘m from ,so a lot of the towns and last names are places I‘ve heard of. I emailed the author after her first one and asked if she was from here. But nope, she‘s from about 1000 miles from us, but her best friend lives here so she got the idea from visiting our area. She is SO nice and replied right away to my email. Every time a new book comes out, she mails me a handful of bookmarks, plus an appreciation letter 2mo
Buechersuechtling @ljuliel You‘re kidding me⁉️😯 (No, of course, you‘re not.) I always thought her places were fictional, too. 🤭 I always wanted to look Painter‘s Mill up but until today ended up never doing it. But I love your story. ❤️ That‘s so nice. Just heart warming‼️🥰 2mo
ljuliel Painter‘s Mill isn‘t a real town, to my knowledge , but the other towns mentioned in the books are real ( Millersburg, Kidron, Charm, Marshallville, Shreve , Wooster , etc ). and the last names used are all familiar names in the area . It‘s a huge population of Amish people who live mostly in Holmes County, but are also in Wayne County( where I‘m from). Wooster is where our courthouse is. (edited) 2mo

At the moment I‘m not really finding time to start my book so audiobooks have to do the trick. This is the one I downloaded for this week‘s commute. I‘m pretty sure I‘m not listening to the series in the correct order but I remember that I very much liked the first case of Kate Burkholder investigating in the Amish environment I got hold of (“Tödliche Wut”/“Gone Missing”). I was in the mood for another one and so I took what I could get. ?

#6 of the series, and it just gets better and better.
Starts off in 79 when an Amish family terrorized by men with nylon masks on. The father is killed first, they take the mother, then when the oldest son is trying to save her, the house catches fire and kills his 4 siblings.
Now these 3 people that did the crime, and older, are now being murdered one by one.
Kate needs to solve it before the last survivor is killed.

Since my husband is with his dad for a baseball game, I was able to finish this. Not my favorite in the series but still a great addition it. 🤗

After a client cancelled this morning, I decided it was best to take a rest day from running and working out. Starting the next book in the Kate Burkholder series sounds like the perfect plan.🤗 It‘s Thursday and I think I‘m over the case of the Mondays... I can only hope! 🤣

robinb Enjoy your downtime! 😊 1y

The sixth book in the Kate Burkholder series includes an isolated conservative sect within the Amish community known Swartzentruber. A murder committed by a group of friends comes back to haunt the participants over thirty years later. Fast paced and intriguing. If you enjoy audio, the narrator of this series is wonderful. And If you're looking for an addictive new #crime #mystery series with a unique perspective, this is it! (Image via Google.)

I'm finally getting back to this series. I have been listening to the audio of this series, and they are being narrated by Kathleen McInerney.

I went to the library to pick up an audio book I had on hold and left with 3 more audiobooks and 3 hardback books. Who leaves with just one??? 🤔🤔
