Publisher's Summary

Some Amish Communities aren't so cozy.

Whispers from the Dead is the powerful and thrilling sequel to Lamb to the Slaughter in the Amish mystery series, Serenity's Plain Secrets. Sheriff Serenity Adams and Daniel Bachman are once again partnered up in a criminal investigation, when they travel to a northern Amish settlement that has been riddled by arsons for the past two decades. Serenity quickly discovers that there is a lot more going on than barn burnings in the touristy community of Poplar Springs. This group of Amish has their own secrets to hide. Serenity begins to unravel an extensive criminal underworld that threatens to destroy everything that the simple people of Poplar Springs hold dear, and once again puts her own life in jeopardy. And even though Serenity tries desperately to avoid it, things begin heating up between her and Daniel, making her wonder if true love and happiness are really within her grasp.

This book contains mild romantic sexual situations and some language.

A Sequel as Good as the First

All of our main characters are back in this sequel, along with a host of new Amish in a secretive community plagued by a ration of arson in barns.

The new community of of Amish have requested Serenity's help to solve the current and former fires. Daniel goes with her as a reference, but their long-fought relationship deepens.

Again, I really love the Audible version.

New narrator please....

Carly Robins, the narrator, read the female parts quite well, but other than that, it's AWFUL! When she reads the parts for the Amish people or men or anything other than an American standard English accent for a woman, Ms. Robins sounds like a robot. It's awful. It took everything for me to get through her reading.

The story is great, but the narration...I'll not buy another book read by Ms. Robins.

book 2 does not disapoint

I really enjoyed book 1, and book 2 was equally good. I've purchased books 3 and 4!

the burning barn

Female sheriff and the case of the amish and the burning barns. This book was full of secrets and murder. Great narration and writing.

Mixed feelings

This is my second book in the series. I have found the relationship (or lack of relationship) between the heroine and hero a bit tiresome. Perhaps I'm too much of a romantic , but it was never clear to me why Serenity was so resistent to Daniel.

Also, I am not an expert on the Amish, but I question the negative portrayal of their community. Though I have no doubt that it's an imperfect group, mI think there are more positives than the author has described thus far in the series.
