Hallowed Ground

By Linda Castillo

Release Date: April 25, 2023

Ebook Available from WV Reads

3 Stars - A spooky short story perfect for Fall reading lovers or Amish fiction fans. You don't have to be a reader of the series to understand it. I periodically check in with Kate Burkholder to see what she's up to now. The excellent atmosphere and skilled writing of the first novels are still present. But admittedly, the plots get a little redundant. This time an Amish man finds bones on his farm and Kate and John Thomasetti swoop in to investigate. They're engaged now but struggling a bit with wedding plans. Plenty of Amish country vibes as well as haunting elements fill the quick story. I wouldn't call this all that suspenseful or climatic though. The situation resolves itself more or less, but there's a definite mystery. It's a quick and easy to follow mystery for Burkholder fans or anyone looking for a little spirit of the Halloween season read.
