While the main characters were not Amish, many of the characters in the story were.

Format: Paperback
After losing her marketing executive job due to some sort of US Attorney General investigation of her, Sienna Collins considers moving onto the property she inherited from her late grandfather in Harmony Grove, Pennsylvania. Based on the advice of her then boyfriend Troy Griffin, Sienna and her dad converted the place into a successful Lancaster County Bed and Breakfast though she has not been there in a couple of years.

Still in Boston, Sienna tries to figure out what just happened to her when Troy calls. Sienna heads to the B&B only to find Troy dead and already in legal trouble, she is only suspect. As she investigates, she finds ties to the Holocaust and increased suspicion by the cops that she is dangerous while someone watches her every move.

The key to this strong suspense thriller is a romantic subplot remains mostly in the background supporting the prime theme of a woman in trouble. The story line is fast-paced from the moment that Sienna is suspended from her job and never slows down as she and the readers try to figure out what is going on in this complicated mystery. Although the climax seems too simple for such a complex plot, fans will relish learning the Secrets of Harmony Cove.

Readers familiar with Mindy Starns Clark know that she is an incredible writer that can weave an intricate story together in a phenomenal way. Her plots are always complex and her characters believable. It is also very difficult to put down one of her novels because the action is always non-stop.

That said, Secrets of Harmony Grove was a rather complicated story. The plot, while interesting from the word "go," had way too many twists and turns. It was a mystery within a mystery, with a few other mysteries served on the side. With all of the subplots, it was not a surprising experience to find several lagging portions in the book.

Knowing that Clark has written another Amish/mystery story, it was a given that the two books were easy to compare against each other. While neither book was overtly Amish, each book featured parts of the Amish lifestyle that are not commonly mentioned in strictly Amish novels. For example, this novel dealt with mental illness and Amish ancestry, while her other novel explained the intricacies of DNA research and diseases among the Amish.

Readers who enjoy lighthearted stories may wish to bypass this particular novel. Clark is a very talented mystery author, but this novel, in particular, had a few scenes that were darker than her usual fare. It will be interesting to see how she has used this novel, as well as her previous Amish/mystery novel, as she branches out with co-writing Amish novels.

Secrets of Harmony Grove by Mindy Starns Clark

Secrets of Harmony Grove by Mindy Starns Clark was the March group read for the Fans of Amish Fiction group on GoodReads. (A group which excitingly now has over 100 members!!)

I finished it in the first couple days of the month, but I held off posting my review so that I wouldn't ruin anything about the book for our other group members who hadn't gotten through it yet.

Let me start off by saying I *REALLY* liked Secrets of Harmony Grove.

Secrets of Harmony Grove follows the story of Sienna Collins who is working a high profile job as a marketing executive. However, she gets called into the office by her bosses as she returns from a business trip to the news that she is going to be going on unpaid leave due to the federal investigation which has began looking into some crime she may have committed. Her bosses refuse to give her any more details, and Sienna is left to pack up her office and has one week to clear or name or risk being fired.

Sienna, obviously upset, goes to see her parents, but does not want to burden her family with the news due to her mother being very ill with M.S. As she is at her parents trying to figure out what has happened to her, she gets a strange phone call from her ex-boyfriend, who is out at the inn she owns in Harmony Grove, Pennsylvania. He is confused, asking her strange questions about a "fishing tree" and seems to be falling terribly ill during the conversation.

Totally baffled, Sienna cannot get a hold of her ex after he hangs up on her, and so she decides to drive out to Harmony Grove to figure out what is going on at her inn. When she arrives, she finds his dead body in the yard along with the manager of the inn.

I have read all Mindy Starns Clark's books and have never been disappointed. I wasn't with this one, either. Clark weaves a doggone good mystery. She keeps you guessing until the end, that's for sure, although I did guess correctly where the diamonds were early in the story.

She certainly keeps a wonderful spiritual vein running throughout, which I deeply appreciate. This one was not as good as the last one, but it will not deter me from buying her next offering. I really enjoyed the book, though.

This was a great read. I kept turning pages and reading one more page trying to figure out "who done it". I was surprised at the end to find out the actual killer. Wow!! Great book with lots of twists and turns that take you in one direction only to cause you to wind up somewhere else. I think Ms Clark did an excellent job of weaving history into this book, and showing how relationships can be affected by the circumstances that we go through.
