The Seach Review and Giveaway!

In the midst of a murder investigation in the heart of Amish country, one young policeman finds his heart led astray.
The serenity of the quiet Amish community of Marion, Kentucky, is disrupted when the body of Perry Borntrager is discovered in an abandoned well. Now the small town faces the first death by mysterious circumstances in more than twenty years, and Detective Luke Reynolds is brought in to help investigate. But before he can solve the crime, he faces unexpected feelings for Frannie, the Amish owner of the local bed-and-breakfast. Though they butt heads at first, Luke finds himself drawn to Frannie's bedside when she's injured in a kitchen accident.
Soon it becomes clear that Frannie knew Perry better than she let on . . . they'd been secretly courting when he disappeared.
Has Luke fallen for the very woman responsible for the crime?

About Shelly

 I own and have read all of Shelley's books. I love them all but  The Secrets of Crittenden County series has been her best yet. I really hate that she left us hanging on who the killer is, now I have to wait until next month to read Found to find out.
