Book Review: Secrets of Harmony Grove by Mindy Starns Clark

Product Description

From the bestselling author of Shadows of Lancaster County comes an exciting new romantic mystery set in Amish country.
Sienna Collins, owner of the Harmony Grove Bed & Breakfast in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, learns that she is under investigation by the federal government for crimes she knows nothing about. A few hours later she finds her ex-boyfriend, Troy, dead, and her life and livelihood begin to spin wildly out of control. She begins to doubt everyone around her, even the handsome detective assigned to the case.
As Sienna tries to clear her name, she is forced to depend on her faith, the wisdom of the Amish, and the insight of the man she has recently begun dating. She’ll need all the help she can get, because the secrets she uncovers in Harmony Grove end up threatening not just her bed-and-breakfast, but also her credibility, her beliefs, and ultimately her life.


I must admit that as a guy, reading the words "romantic mystery" on the back cover of a novel do cause me to feel some fear and trembling. While I usually try to finish a novel, books in this genre have caused me to walk away numerous times from a book that has come highly recommended. In the case of Secrets of Harmony Grove, I was not even tempted once to walk away, because the story grabbed me and wouldn't let go. I enjoyed the suspense and the twists and turns, along with the sobering historical glimpses from the Holocaust that were provided. Clark provided an enjoyable read that was not only entertaining but was thought-provoking as well.
