My book group read this book and we loved it! The story is very engaging and the characters well-developed. John and Sallie especially are very realistic and likeable. Especially toward the end, I didn't want to put the book down, and the author mixed in just enough educational material about the Amish and the PA Dutch dialect to make me feel like I learned something by reading this book. We're all anxious for the sequel!

this is an excellent book, made even better by knowing the author personally, his father was a dear friend for many years, I would definitely say read it, its a look in to a world we know little about, I live in Penna Dutch Country, and I found it facinating, even tho I have Amish friends !!

I have gotten caught up in the A&E Network Mystery show, Longmire. Maybe because I like westerns or maybe because I like protagonists who are quiet for a reason, they have a past. John Lapp, the protagonist, in Death Takes a Buggy Ride, has an Amish past. As I have stated in other reviews of "Amish" literature it is good to find a novel that is not a Christian Romance novel. In other words chick literature for a certain demographic. Well you get that in Ron Yeakley's mystery novel DEATH TAKES A BUGGY RIDE. The protagonist, John Lapp, is a Pennsylvania State Trooper, doing highway patrol work, who is called in to help investigate the murder of an Amish man. Why, well John grew up Amish and left that way of life in his teen years. The investigating detectives need someone who can converse with the natives and understands the culture. John Lapp the person they call in is in the midst of getting a divorce, questions why he went into police work at the prodding of his father-in-law and now has to investigate the murder of the husband of an Amish girl he loved as a teenager. That girl is Sally Stoltfuz. I know this part of the country and so does the author. The protagonist rides down roads that actually exist, the author describes the lay of the land with great accuracy, and he does well describing how two cultures, centuries apart, coexist for each others benefit and destruction. The ending was predictable, but that does not take away from the feel of this book. You are literally in the police car along for the ride in this novel. John Lapp is just a great police character. He does his job, but you get the impression that life, like a moving river, is just moving him along and he does not know why. You feel his doubts in this book.Read more ›

I am not personally a big mystery reader. I find the plots kind of the same from book to book. The same stereotypes in each book, etc. But I found Death Takes a Buggy Ride a page turner. Set in Amish country, makes this book even more of an interesting read. Well written and researched on the culture of the Amish and the surrounding "English" town nearby. A great read with something to learn.

Excellent Amish Fiction Novel. One of the best I've read in a while. Couldn't put it down. The ending kind of left me hanging. Hope there will be a sequel. Lots of action, great detail of the Amish life. A little harsh language and the word used for the "mentally disabled" was a little much. Overall I gave it 5 stars.
