      Hidden in Plain Sight is apparently NOT going to be the last book in this series I was afraid of that That might sound odd coming from someone, who for the most part, enjoyed the series, but I just feel like I won t be able to keep reading this series without losing interest The first two books were very compelling and the Amish felt somewhat sinister in the way they dealt with things I liked that a lot about the first couple of books Now that Serenity has gotten to know and understand them bett [...]

    2. Amber says:
      Decent novelI enjoyed this story immensely albeit done aspects were a bit unrealistic For instance, the premise that a small town sheriff be asked to help on a cold case committed in another state is difficult to believe However, once you get past these small inconsistencies, the book is both heart warning and charming for a wide variety of audiences I love this series, but as in the previous book, this book characterizes Serenity as being suspicious to a fault In all though, I think it was a me [...]

      Interesting story set in Indiana Amish countryHaving lived many years near a large Amish settlement in Indiana, I was intrigued by the story when I read the description of this book The mystery isn t complicated, and there is violence in this book The editing isn t the best as there are missing words frequently, but that wasn t too distracting The main character, Serenity, goes back and forth between being a strong no nonsense sheriff and a bundle of emotions The FBI men are competent most of th [...]

      Different culture, but people are peopleTook a bit of time to get into the story, but by the middle I couldn t put it down I liked that Serenity had a history with the Amish that wasn t all good or all bad The culture is different, but people are the same they love, they hate, they love their children and want the best for them, they make mistakes and try to hide them Looking forward to reading some in the series

    8. Sandy Adams says:
      Another win for Serenity and Ms HopkinsSerenity again faces the challenge of a murder in the Amish communityis time a 15 year old cold case Is it possible Daniel is involved One of the best things about this series is the characters All the names and relationships can get a bit confusing but the people seem real and the situations plausible.

    9. Linda Zaragoza-zrubek says:
      Super Fantastic What a great and well written story It kept me riveted to each and every page until the end A good mystery that I truly enjoyed Things happen in the Amish world that is hushed and goes hidden for years Great strong characters both English and Amish Just loved this book and highly recommend to an older age.

    10. Valerie Downs says:
      HmmmI rarely leave a book without finishing it I got to 50% but just couldn t go on I wasn t able to force myself to be interested This is not my usual genre so maybe that is the reason But when I get those precious moments to immerse myself in a book, it defeats the purpose if the book is a chore to read Just not for me.

    11. Ronpoet says:
      Serenity Does It AGAINThis Is as close to a cozy mystery as you can get and not be one This is the second Serenity I have read and I Will end up reading them all Highly recommend them

    12. James Overcash says:
      Cold case mysteryA who done it production with a female sheriff searching for clues to a killer Case solved in its entirety Heroine s intended needs fleshing out a bit Maybe in the next book Want to read , did not see the ending coming.

    13. Dona Moore says:
      InterestingI loved the story, it really pulls you in You get a real feel of the characters I really liked the contrast between the two worlds Even down to the love hate relationship with Serenity.

      Great book Love the insight into other cultures.Love how things come together The characters are well fleshed out and believable Great read you will want to finish in one sitting.

    16. Karen Sheldon says:
      Quick read I like this book because the plot played out quickly I didn t realize it was the third book in the series enough was mentioned so as I don t feel the need to read the first two books in the series.

    17. Sherron L Pace says:
      A little faithSometimes that s all you need other times it takes so much As it does in this case of an old closed cold case The murder hadn t been solved 15 years ago yet one US Marshal yet searching until the day he died.

    18. Donna Engler says:
      Karen Hopkins books are always interesting I love the mysteries Sheriff Serenity always gets involved in, and I love her fianc Daniel Can t wait for them to tie the knot and start a family, but there s always a new case on the horizon It keeps me wanting
