is a happy ending the author throws a surprise curve ball I was thinking of giving this book 3 stars I liked it but the ending alone deserves another star Originally posted on The Book NymphoKate

resolution While I really liked this story, I wasn t thrilled with the number of issues left unresolved I m hoping some of these are addressed in future stories Kate and Tomasetti s relationship, however, was a real positive It s moving slowly and consistent with the personalities of the characters This remains one of my favorite series and I m anxious to continue Kathleen McInerney s narration is another highlight, making each of the charactersvivid with her performance This is definitely one of my favorite series Full of suspense and hard to guess killers Highly recommended Kate Burkholder is called in to investigate the disappearance of an Amish teenager The girl was enjoying Rumspringa, a period of freedom for teens where they can experience the modern world before being fully baptized into the Amish faith As Kate investigates the disappearance, she and Agent John Tomasetti discover similar cold cases going back several years Amish teens in the region who were a bit

teen Kate knows and loves disappears, the case hits closer to home and Kate knows she has to solve the case fast.Gone Missing is another great story in the Kate Burkholder series Fast paced and action packed, this story definitely kept my attention from start to finish And multiple twists and turns kept me guessing right up to the end Awesome I enjoy this series Each case involves the Amish, but it isn t just slight variations on one themeeach story is different and well written Kate is intelligent, driven and skilled at her job Born Amish, she has an insight into that culture that others just don t have Tomasetti is her best friend and lover There is a bit of a romance angle there, but it doesn t overpower the main plot It s just a bit of seasoning for character development There are 10 books in the Kate Burkholder series with a new book, Shamed, coming out in July 2019 I started reading this series several years ago and lost track of it while waiting for book 4 to come out Glad I

years, and her faith to tackle this challenge Further, she must confront her status and feelings for John Tomasetti both personal and professional A Good Read Quote But if I ve learned anything in my thirty three years, it is that no matter how badly you want a redo, life never makes such allowances Descending into the tunnel is like being swallowed alive by a wet black mouth.And I wonder how long this precarious happiness will last I won this ARC copy of Gone Missing on a Goodreads Giveaway which did not influence my review.I am fan of this series, but this latest entry was a disappointment to me on various levels First off, I hope that the book goes through another editing before the final edition goes to print, because there were so many dropped words and misspelled words or incorrect words used that I had to stop myself from grabbing a red pencil and correcting them Next, the writing was repetitive I lost count of ho I won this ARC copy of Gone Missing on a Goodreads Giveaway

final edition goes to print, because there were so many dropped words and misspelled words or incorrect words used that I had to stop myself from grabbing a red pencil and correcting them Next, the writing was repetitive I lost count of how many times John Tomasseti grimaced, or snarled out his words, or used the F word to show frustration Even Kate kept swearing and sighing endlessly And at one point, Kate is observing an Amish man with a long beard down to his belly that overhangs his pants, telling her the man is married and well fed by his wife And a few scenes later, she observes another Amish man, describing him in exactly the same way How strange.As for the story itself, again, it was repetitive of other books in the series I thought that it was going to be different with Kate assisting John with an investigation outside her little town of Painters Mill But it was the same murder and mayhem involving the Amish How much serious crime can such a community support Way too much, it seems And this time around, the crime spree was way over the top, stretching the story s credibility and in my opinion, showing the Amish in a poor light And please, oh please, do not have a sequel to this story as it seems there might be Enough is enough Time to take this series in a different direction.I think that the author has created some very interesting characters in Kate and John and all the people who populate Painters Mill That is why I keep coming back and reading the next book But she has backed herself into a corner, having a little town for Kate to police Painters Mill isn t Chicago or Atlanta or Los Angeles where so much crime can run rampant I would like to see somepersonal stories involving the Amish and the Englishers in that town, ones that don t rely on serial crimes and mass destruction That would intrigue me and have me eager to read another book in this series
