Joining Jill at Breaking the Spine for her weekly Wednesday Meme..
Waiting on Wednesday were we post the books that we are patiently or not
so patiently looking for at the library or at the store. This week I was looking on the internet for new releases and stumbled upon an amish mystery by Shelley Shepard Gray. Read the synopsis made me add it quickly to my soon to be reserved list..

Overview
Can two young people survive the suspicions of their friends and neighbors when tragedy strikes a close-knit Amish community?

Perry Borntrager had been missing for months from the quiet Amish community of Crittenden, Kentucky, when his body is discovered at the bottom of an abandoned well. The first death from mysterious circumstances in more than two decades brings the scrutiny of the outside world: A police detective arrives to help the local sheriff with the investigation. His questioning begins with Lydia Plank, Perry’s former girlfriend, and Perry’s best friend, the Englischer Walker Anderson.

Lydia and Walker know they didn’t have anything to do with Perry’s death, but they both hold secrets about his final days. Do they dare open up about the kind of man Perry had become? In the oppressive shadow of these dark times, they discover strength in a most unlikely companionship: one that offers solace, understanding, and the promise of something more.

Interesting looking book. I don't read a lot of Amish books but do like the mystery ones the best. I'll add it to my list.

I haven't ever read any Amish based books but it sounds interesting! And it's takes place in Kentucky (where I live), so that's different :) Crittenden is less than an hour away from me. Very neat! Great choice! Thanks for sharing and for stopping by!

This hints of being a mystery/love story? It does sound interesting.

I love Beverly Lewis' books about Amish life -- I haven't read any of the mysteries yet but this one will surely be my first!
