    Great Mystery set in Amish Country

    Secrets of Harmony Grove is another great read by Mindy Starns Clark. Each book gets better -- and this one doesn't have the intense suspense pacing of Under the Cajun Moon. It is set in Amish country, but like another reviewer said isn't an Amish book. Instead, the story focuses on Sienna and a murder that occurs at her B&B in the heart of Lancaster county.

    There are many layers that are woven from the first chapter. At times I wondered how all the varied pieces would fit together, but by the end, they all came together. There's her job, her boyfriend, a mystery surrounding her grandfather, a World War II twist, not to mention a murder and couple assaults to be solved. As she digs, each layer twists and turns through the pages.

    There's also a tightly woven layer spiritual theme that fits with the rest of the plot. It adds a layer of dimension to the main character without slowing down the reading. The characterization goes below the surface level, and the motivations for the characters works. It is a complex book that makes for a page-turning read. I thoroughly enjoyed it and the ultimate twist that comes in the final pages.

    Recommended Mystery

    Sienna's Grandfather had been brought up Amish, but her Dad and his family had not. The setting for her Inn is an Amish Community. She does have a lot of Amish family who live around her inn and help her.

    The spin on this story will take you from a serene Amish community to Nazi Germany and the Concentration Camps. There is a lot twist and turns in the story, including Mob involvement. There is also her Grandfather's PTSD from the War. Just when you think you know what is going on...something else happens. It becomes a real page turner...keep them coming Mindy!

    The opinions expressed are my own!

    Once again, Mindy Starns Clark takes us to Lancaster County wher

    Once again, Mindy Starns Clark takes us to Lancaster County where the Amish people make their home. Moira heads there for answers when her ex-fiance is killed and she finds out she's under investigation by the Attorney General. Although it became just a little predictable near the end, I nonetheless enjoyed the read and would recommend it to anyone who's read any of Clark's stories. If you haven't, consider reading Under the Cajun Moon first. Although it's not her first novel, I consider it one of her best ones. I also liked the Penny for Your Thought series.
