This week, I finished another installment in author Linda Castillo’s gripping Amish murder mystery series starring Kate Burkholder. Her Last Breath is book #5 in the series.
I enjoyed it thoroughly. Here’s my Goodreads review:
Another gripping installment in a compelling series. I don’t know how she does it, but the author was able to make me cry at the beginning of the book. Some scenes toward the end were slightly improbable, but I was effortlessly carried along by the force of the main character’s response to a deadly situation. This was hands down one of the better books I have read in the last several years. Of course, I can say that about the entire series. Masterful.
There are lots of interesting bits in the books. Book #5 discusses some of the genetic challenges the Amish experience. I know a bit about the culture, but I didn’t know the extent of the genetic issues. It was another interesting factor that added layers to the story.
I’m already looking for a copy of The Dead Will Tell, which is book #6. Looking forward to what happens next with Chief Burkholder.
