Publisher's Description

From the bestselling author of Shadows of Lancaster County comes an exciting new romantic mystery set in Amish country.

Sienna Collins, owner of the Harmony Grove Bed & Breakfast in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, learns that she is under investigation by the federal government for crimes she knows nothing about. A few hours later she finds her ex-boyfriend, Troy, dead, and her life and livelihood begin to spin wildly out of control. She begins to doubt everyone around her, even the handsome detective assigned to the case.

As Sienna tries to clear her name, she is forced to depend on her faith, the wisdom of the Amish, and the insight of the man she has recently begun dating. She'll need all the help she can get, because the secrets she uncovers in Harmony Grove end up threatening not just her bed-and-breakfast, but also her credibility, her beliefs, and ultimately her life.

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
