Secrets of Harmony Grove by Mindy Starns Clark is a book that defies genre classification because it is a mishmash of romance, mythology, religion, mystery, and legend. This book, with its picturesque country cover and rustic sounding title, makes one expect to find within its pages a slow Amish romance. That is not what this book is. (I am still not sure what it is.) The main character, Sienna, is investigated by the attorney general for suspected illegal activities, and she is suspended from her job indefinitely. While coping with that, her former boyfriend is murdered, and the suspected killer is the fabled werewolf said to be lurking in her ex-Amish grandfather's grove that was established as a memorial to his late wife. (No, no, I'm serious.) And that’s just the first fifty pages. There are three hundred more pages that are equally as bizarre and entangled.

Because the plot is labyrinthine, the characterizations and mood suffer. Few characters grow, and Sienna narrates her tale of woe at one pace, which becomes tedious. She often includes irrelevant details. Also, because of the Amish setting, the religious doctrine relies heavily on the Amish interpretation of Scripture. Someone who enjoys being unable to predict what lies on the next page or enjoys a "twisted," soap-opera-like plot may appreciate this book. Generally speaking, however, it is convoluted and rambling. – Hannah McMullen, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    Just finished this one and as always with Mindy's books, well worth the read!! Read the whole thing during a one day to visit family for Thanksgiving. I got hooked on the Million Dollar series...wonderful...and have enjoyed every one I've read since then.

    This review was written for Secrets of Harmony Grove.
    I liked Mindy Clark's million dollar series and thought this one would be right up there with a well written plot. I was sadly disappointed as Ms Clark incorporates too many plot elements that do not flow together well and distract the reader. Her main character, Sienna, comes off as worldly, self centered and materialistic, though at the end she does come out of that mode to take over the Bed and Breakfast.

    Halfway through the book I was ready to give up as the plot rambled from a B & B with no guests, to the treatment of the Jews in WWII, to murder and animal fighting. Entirely too much plot for a story that takes place in the simple Amish countryside. I really wouldn't recommend purchasing this book as I was extremely disappointed in it.

    I had recently purchased and read The Amish Midwife and The Amish Nanny co-written by Mindy Starns Clark and I thought they were quite well done. I'm a huge fan of the Amish so add mystery to that and I'm there!

    I decided to try 4 of her stand-alone books including this one and WOW! They were just fantastic! I found them easy to read, and yet the storylines were unique and mysterious. The books had enough substance that it made me want to keep reading even if it was late at night :)

    Highly recommend all 4 of Mindy's stand-alone books (Whispers of the Bayou, Shadows of Lancaster County, Under the Cajun Moon and Secrets of Harmony Grove). She starts with a climax in the first few chapters and keeps the intensity there throughout the rest of the book! Next on my list to buy is her Million Dollar Mystery series and I can't wait!
