The Search Book Review

I went to the library to return the last book that I read out of the series and pick up my next book on reserve.  Luckily, I got to pick up the next book in this series too. The Search: The Secrets of Crittenden County, Book Two by Shelley Shepard Gray which I was super eager to read.  I even opened it and started reading it while I was still at the library!!

Small devout community of Crittenden County, Kentucky is rocked by the  murder of a young, black sheep neighbor when the body of Perry Borntrager is discovered in an abandoned well. In the midst of a murder investigation in the heart of Amish country, one young policeman finds his heart led astray by a young woman who’s guarding shocking secrets about the victim, and the dedicated “Englisher” homicide detective who has arrived from the outside world to investigate.  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 courting when he disappeared.  Has Luke fallen for the very woman responsible for the crime? You are going to have to pick up the book and find out for yourself!

I was glad to follow up on the series since the first book left me feeling unfinished.  I was excited to find it on the shelf at the library when I went there because with so many branches of the library, it is always hard to know where the books are going to be if you don't check before you go.  I also took the time to reserve the third book in the series while I was there so that I could read it next.  I like to have resolution on a series and see it through to the end to see if it is something of interest to me.  I hope that you enjoy this series if you read it.  Give the series a chance past the first book because I don't think that you will be disappointed.
