I can't help but emphasize the exciting writing style. Hopkins has a way of stirring excitement when excitement is crucial to the plot, as well as revving things up when you least expect a jump or two of energy. Her dialogue is spot-on. Nothing stilted about it. When her characters speak, it's as though you are in the room with them (or in the sheriff's car or Amish barn, as the case may be).
As mysteries go, she weaves a good web. I was happy to see Sheriff Serenity's heart softening a bit toward the Amish in the second book and that she carried forth the ability to possibly see some good in them in Secrets In The Grave. (I'm familiar with Amish folks in the real world and know that most of them are wonderful people of stellar moral character.)
I can't wait to read the fourth book in this series. Hopkins set up the desire to read it at the very end of this book by whetting my appetite to get back in the field with Sherriff Serenity. The beauty of the way Hopkins made me want to delve into the upcoming book is that she didn't leave me hanging with this one. Everything was solved that needed to be solved -- making this book a nice stand-alone.
I love a MEATY book, page-count wise. I hope Hopkins keeps up the great work by delivering books at this length. She fills each page with wonderful input -- nothing is filler. Kudos to this marvelous writer.
but just ends up being a medium rating book in my opinion.
It has several typo's, and mistakes, and a couple plot holes.
It was decent enough I guess, but I felt like it repeated itself a lot, and in the end the star sheriff
(Serenity) did not solve the case... it does get solved, but not by her... There are some twists and turns
and it does keep your interest. But since she is the star of this series I would of liked her to be smart enough
to solve a case..
The Amish have another mystery for Serenity to solve, the name of the book doesn't relate
much with the story really. A young girl dies giving birth. She is not married and most did not know
she was even pregnant. There is a new asst. DA hired, she is ex Amish like Serenity's BF
No sex - No bad language that I noticed.
Some things that made me shake my head and roll my eyes in this story: 50% of the Amish have cell phones.
and the Amish women wear Bright Colorful clothes, which is very unrealistic, the only colors I have ever
seen them wear are Dark blue, black and brown with some white shirts and scarves. No bright colors.
and many people in this story "Snort" a lot....
Even with all this that I did not care for, I still enjoy this series and will look for the next one when it goes on sale.
As in earlier books, there were many places here where I wasn’t sure if Serenity or Daniel was the POV character. And there are so many places where Serenity and Daniel or some other character breaks out in an eye roll or raised eyebrows, they’re epidemics that need investigating by the CDC.
This book had a bit of a soap opera-ish tone to it in the way Serenity carries on about Daniel’s interactions with an old female friend. For a professional adult, she sure acts like a teen experiencing her first crush. And for a police officer trained to ‘read’ people, she’s blind as a bat when it comes to reading Daniel. It may make for a better story but it’s unrealistic here.
I have the next book in the series in my To Read pile. But if it’s more ‘As The World Turns’ than ‘A Study In Scarlet,’ it will be the last one I read.
