Thank you Minotaur Publishing for this ARC. A fantastic read! This is my first in this series, and amazed how easily it could be read as a standalone. I do want to go back and read more. In this story, Kate is dealing with a murder of young boy in the Amish community. However, he isn't what he seems to be. Linda Castillo wrote this story so well, and she's light on so many social issues in our society as well the Amish. Unputdownable!
