This is a weekly event that highlights a book that we can't wait to be published. It's hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Linda Castillo's Kate Burkholder series is a favorite of mine. I eagerly await each new book that is usually published in the summer. Great summer reading! Kate Burkholder is the Chief of the Painter's Mill Police Department. She is smack dab in the middle of Amish country and Kate herself was raised Amish. She left home as a teen though and eventually became a police officer in the big city. She never thought she'd return home, certainly not as the police chief. After the Storm is the 7th book in this series. Even though some have thought that it might suffer a bit from "Cabot Cove syndrome" (too many murders in the same venue strains credulity), I've enjoyed each and every book. I like Kate and I like her good friend, State Agent John Tomasetti, and I can't wait for:
by Linda Castillo
Publication Date: July 14th
Meanwhile, turmoil of an emotional and personal nature strikes at the very heart of Kate’s budding relationship with state agent John Tomasetti. A reality that strains their fragile new love to the breaking point and threatens the refuge they’ve built for themselves—and their future.
Under siege from an unknown assailant—and her own personal demons—Kate digs deep into the case only to discover proof of an unimaginable atrocity, a plethora of family secrets and the lengths to which people will go to protect their own.
