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 2d
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‼️🥰 2d
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) 2d

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. ?

I just flew through this novella, #4.5 in the Kate Burkholder series. Kate and John are on vacation, but they can‘t resist working on a local missing persons case while they‘re out of town for the weekend. Kate and John definitely deserve a vacation after the last few intense cases they‘ve solved. It made me smile that as much as John wanted to relax, Kate wanted to interview witnesses. Loved it!! Can‘t wait to grab the next book in the series.

Kate Burkholder series #4. This series is so great. Kate Burkholder is the perfect combination of flawed individual and dedicated police chief. She collaborated with Agent John Tomasetti on a case involving multiple missing Amish teens. The case kept getting bigger and bigger, with increasing suspense. Just when I thought the case was solved, a massive twist was thrown in, and I can‘t wait to see how it plays out in future installments.

I‘m giving this a pick but I had mixed feelings on this one. It‘s the first I‘ve read in this series but I didn‘t feel I was missing out on anything. The mystery was interesting but not hard to figure out. I guess my biggest complaint is they seemed to dumb it down way too much and spell out every little thing the detective was doing instead of letting us use our brains. Still, I‘m interested in reading more of the series. 3.5⭐️

#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.
❤❤❤

Chief Kate is called to investigate a murder by arson of a young Amish man. She slowly comes to understand some very disturbing truths about the victim. Apparently this is book 10 of a series, but I didn‘t feel I‘d missed anything jumping in at this point. I really liked this and will certainly look for more books by this author.

Third in the Kate Burkholder Amish mystery-thriller series. I love these books because the author makes writes hard-hitting crimes and investigations. This one started a little slower than previous books, but about halfway thru there was a major plot twist that quickened the pacing for me. Lots of twists and turns in the second half. I really liked it!
