This second book in this series takes off where the first one left off. I enjoyed the characters and progress even though it moves slowly. There were some interesting things that advance in the investigation here. It concludes in a somewhat happy place though with a bit of a cliffhanger. I guess I must read the next one to see what really happens.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I would recommend this book.
I read the first book of this series and other books by this author such as Springs Renewal & Autumns Promise and they have all been good. I will continue to watch for new books by her and will read those as well. I have shared all of the books I have read written by this author with my mother in law and she enjoys them just as much. They have all been good and quick reads.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The Search by Shelley Shepard Gray is the second book in The Sec
The Search by Shelley Shepard Gray is the second book in The Secrets of Crittenden County series. The discovery of Perry Borntrager's body has stirred up this close-knit Amish community. Detective Luke Reynolds is still trying to sort through the evidence and learn the identity of the killer, but his feelings for Perry's former flame Frannie Eicher has put a crimp in his investigation. When she is injured in a kitchen accident, Luke finds himself spending more time at her hospital bedside than working on the case, and ignoring the possibility that Frannie may be hiding something from him about it. Frannie's accident forces Beth Byler to take over Frannie's bed and Breakfast, which is far out of her comfort zone. She's more comfortable taking care of babies and young children than baking and being a good hostess, but mysterious guest Chris Ellis not only helps out but awakens something inside Beth. Others in the community are struggling with the repercussions of Perry's drug dealing and death as well, especially his sister Deborah who knows far more than she's telling anyone. Gray has a real talent for creating fascinating stories with Amish characters, exposing them as real people with hopes, dreams, and secrets. Frannie is the center of this novel, and she's a terrific heroine: strong, smart, and wanting desperately to be loved. I think that Beth and Chris' relationship was a bit rushed; they both confess to extraordinarily deep feelings that seem unrealistic based on the three encounters in the story. That's the only flaw in this story filled with suspense, major twists and turns, romance, and friendship. Gray makes it very easy to fall in love with the Amish communities she describes, and I'm ready to book my stay at the Yellow Bird Inn in Crittenden County!Was this review helpful?
