"After The Storm" by Linda Castillo-Suspenseful!

 
 
SUMMARY
When a tornado tears through Painters Mill and unearths human remains, Chief of Police Kate Burkholder finds herself tasked with the responsibility of identifying the bones―and notifying the family. Evidence quickly emerges that the death was no accident and Kate finds herself plunged into a thirty year old case that takes her deep into the Amish community to which she once belonged.
Meanwhile, turmoil of an emotional and personal nature strikes at the very heart of Kate's budding relationship with state agent John Tomasetti. A reality that strains their fragile new love to the breaking point and threatens the refuge they've built for themselves―and their future.
Under siege from an unknown assailant―and her own personal demons―Kate digs deep into the case only to discover proof of an unimaginable atrocity, a plethora of family secrets and the lengths to which people will go to protect their own.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:



Linda Castillo knew from an early age that she wanted to be a writer--and penned her first novel at the age of thirteen. She's published thirty books for three New York publishing houses and won numerous industry awards, including a nomination by the International Thriller Writers for Best Hardcover, the Golden Heart, the Daphne du Maurier Award of Excellence, and a nomination for the prestigious Rita.

Her debut thriller, SWORN TO SILENCE, garnered starred reviews from Library Journal, Publisher's Weekly, and Booklist--and spent four weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. The following books in the series also hit the NYT and USA Today lists and became international bestsellers. Recently, SWORN TO SILENCE was adapted into a two-hour original movie re-titled AN AMISH MURDER and starring Neve Campbell as Kate Burkholder.

In her spare time, Linda enjoys trail riding, and dabbles in barrel racing. She resides in Texas with her husband, two rescued Blue Heelers, and two Appaloosa horses. She's currently at work on her next novel, a thriller set in Amish Country and featuring Chief of Police Kate Burkholder.

THE BOOKISH DAME REVIEWS:
 
I am a huge fan of Linda Castillo!  Can't get enough of her books and her feisty protagonist, Chief Kate Burkholder.  One of her books, "Sworn to Silence," was made into a Lifetime Original Movie starring Neve Campbell as Burkholder...the perfect casting...and now I can only see her when I read the books.
 
Castillo is a master at keeping the book and story moving along.  The chapters race at rapid speed with the plot advancing at every turn.  I pride myself on being a regular crime reader who isn't easily fooled, but these novels trip me up every time!  It's a joy ride for me.
 
In this particular novel, Castillo enlists our sympathies from the very beginning.... I was hooked.  I  was taken in track by track as Kate Burkholder moved to solve the crime.  This is not a story that you would expect about a sleepy Amish community.  It's a down and dirty, every day community hidden behind a strict religious screen that protects it from outsiders.  Because Kate grew up Amish, and left the order as a late teen, she has some understanding of the oxymoron, which keeps the story real and revealing to a curious reader.
 
I highly recommend this series of novels.  Murder is possible in the Amish community...from the most unsuspecting people!  I loved this book.  Also a fabulous read was her book:
 

This one is about an Amish man and his three children who were hit and run...he and two children killed.  Kate finds this was a deliberate act of murder!  Fantastic book! It had me guessing until the end.
 
5 stars for both!
