Still after eight Kate Burkholder’s adventures in this series, I pre-ordering then count the minutes for each of Linda Costello’s latest to go live. I will continue to get so. I enjoy this strong character that is also sweet to those that live in a manner that she has not chosen for herself. The secondary stories and characters are like old friends as well. I was thankful that the author took Kate on the road to another community and adventure, this time - I am not sure how much tragedy Painters Mill can take?

The problem with starting a book one has been waiting for is that it's finished soon and we're left to wait for the next one again. This latest in the Kate Burkholder series is such a book.
First, I have to say that the premise of this book is quite different than the previous ones. Kate leaves Painters Mills and the many characters there to go undercover in a NY Amish community. I wasn't sure I'd like that. I missed them. But the suspense level toward the end made this a cannot-stop-reading book.
I like Tomasetti. I wish their relationship wasn't so confrontational so often. But making-up is always good.
The narration was fine. This was a wonderful book and I'm already looking forward to the next one.

I love Linda Castillo stories. Love the characters and settings. This story did not hold up Kate Burkholder managed to get over every object put in her way, not believable, and the conclusion made it clear that she wouldn't have lasted five minutes in that hostile environment. Disappointing.
Chief of Police Kate Burkholder leaves Painters Mill to go undercover in upstate New York. She goes into a reclusive Amish settlement to followup on the death of a young girl. Things on the outside look OK but the wall of silence within the community makes it hard to understand what is actually going on.
Kate takes on the assignment against the wishes of her partner John Tomasetti which doesn't bode well for their relationship.
I really enjoy this series of books but recently read a review that talked about the annoyance of Kate's and John's insecurity. I am in agreement with that reviewer! They need to take a risk!!
However, another good story read beautifully by Kathleen McInerney.
