    Romantic suspense keeps the thrills coming

    Shadows of Lancaster County by Mindy Starns Clark if a suspense novel chockfull of twisting plots and unexpected discoveries. Anne Bailey has created a new life for herself in California. Far away from her childhood home in Lancaster County,Pennsylvania and from the crime that destroyed her future. When her brother Bobby disappears leaving behind pregnant wife Lydia and son Isaac, Anne sets out to find him. That quest sets her on a course that will unearth secrets about DNA, long-lost gems, and the Amish. I'm a huge fan of Clark's work, and in the hands of any other author, this story would have been overburdened by all of the different plotlines and twists, but she handles them deftly, keeping readers flying through the pages. There's a lot of info about genetic testing and gene therapy that end up pulling the various story threads together. Clark's novel will appeal to readers who love the growing genre of Amish lit, as well as romantic thriller fans.

    I Also Recommend:

    Original, good suspense by Mindy Starns Clark.

    If you want to learn more about the Amish people and their customs and read a good suspense novel at the same time, this story is for you. I didn't find this story as romantic as her previous novels -- the romance was more in the background because the heroine was hardly around the love of her life for most of the book.
