Suspendered Sentence

An Amish Mystery, #4

Suspendered Sentence is a really good Amish story. A lot of Amish books focus on finding true love. This book focuses around a murder and a woman stuck in the middle. I really liked that the author created a place that felt real. I felt like I could take a vacation to Heavenly and meet these people. Rumspringa is a very important time in the lives of the Amish. I enjoyed how the writer mentions that no one really knows what goes on outside of the Amish community. There is definitely a new found freedom and so many new and different things to experience. I liked the ending and cannot wait to read more from this author.

But in the midst of the work, a human skeleton is unearthed. Found with the remains is half of a friendship bracelet last seen on Sadie Lehman, an Amish teen long believed to have left her strict upbringing for the allure of English ways.

Now Detective Jakob Fisher—once a member of the Amish community himself—is determined to solve the young woman’s murder. With Claire’s help, he must dig into the past and bring to light long-buried secrets—secrets that someone is willing to kill to protect…
