Secrets of Harmony Grove

Author: Mindy Starns Clark
Publisher: Harvest House Publishers
October 2010
ISBN: 978-0-7369-2625-6
Genre: Inspirational/Amish/suspense

Sienna Collins’ life was falling down around her ears. She had just landed a huge deal with a firm in Boston, but she reports back to her job to find herself suspended without pay because she is under investigation by the government for crimes she knows nothing about.

When Sienna’s ex-boyfriend calls from Pennsylvania, sounding confused and spouting off nonsense, Sienna decides to go to the bed and breakfast she owns to see what is going on. What she discovers is that everything is not as it seems and the truth unearths long-held family secrets that threaten her livelihood, her beliefs and her life.

I have long loved Ms. Clark’s books, and was excited when I got this one in the mail to review. I had read a previous book of hers set in Amish country, and looked forward to reading SECRETS OF HARMONY GROVE. It didn’t disappoint.

Sienna is a realistic heroine, and written in first person, I got to know her very well. I recognized Mrs. Clark’s voice from previous books, but Sienna is her own unique character. Readers of suspense and Amish fiction won’t be disappointed by this book. I figured out some of the plot before it was revealed, but not all of it, and I really enjoyed the way it all was tied together. Bravo! I highly recommend this book. $13.99. 352 pages.
