Series: Amish-Country Mystery
In Whiskers of the Lion, Sheriff Bruce Robertson is charged with finding a young Amish woman on the run from a murderous drug ring so she can testify in federal court. Wrestling with a recurring childhood nightmare of a deadly lion, the Holmes County sheriff finds himself torn between allegiance to the legal system he upholds and the beliefs of the people he is sworn to protect.

"Gaus is a sensitive storyteller who matches his cadences to the measured pace of Amish life, catching the tensions among the village's religious factions." – The New York Times Book Review
"Precise, detailed descriptions of Amish practices and full-bodied, unhurried, well-measured prose. A pleasure to read." --Library Journal
"Gaus captures the steady cadence of Amish life and offers a vivid depiction of both the world they live in and their particular vision of human experience." --Christian Science Monitor
"Gaus has done successfully what would seem nearly impossible: to meld a mystery novel with a description of Amish life in Holmes County without scanting either one." --Ohioana Quarterly

Gaus! I love and enjoy reading this author's style of writing, even though it may be a little different. I've always thought the author gives a creative and unusual title for his books. Whiskers of the Lion is an exciting mystery with twists and turns. I love how the characters are so unique in their own way. Whiskers of the Lion is Book Nine in the Amish-Country series. I'm looking forward to the next book by Author P.L. Gaus.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. This review is one hundred percent my opinion.

Each book builds this series to an even stronger read. I love each of the characters and how the author develops them. He really is able to bring his characters to life. I am so glad to have found this author and his books. He takes the time to research and set each scene and each scenario in the book. It helps that I also know some of the area in which his books are taking place. I will continue to read this author and pray he continues to write these wonderful novels.
In this book, Fannie is still on the run from both the drug ring and the law. Which will find her first? Meanwhile, the Sheriff is struggling in his own life. Will he be able to settle this matter or will this be the case that will break him? While it is a continuation of the 8th book, this book can be read as a stand alone. With all the twists and turns in the mystery, one cannot but keep turning the page. I would highly recommend this novel!!
