What I’m Reading: Her Last Breath

I have long been listening Linda Castillo’s book series with Kate Burkholder so when I saw on the online library that she had two new audio books out I jumped at the chance to check them out. Her Last Breath: A Novel (Kate Burkholder Novels) was the most recent one I finished.

Amazon gives it 4.5 stars and I think I’d agree.  I often like reading Amish based books and I like mysteries, so this is an easy choice for me to read.  Here’s what Amazon had to say about it, “A rainy night, an Amish father returning home with his three children, a speeding car hurtling toward them out of nowhere.

What at first seems like a tragic, but routine car accident  suddenly takes on a more sinister cast as evidence emerges that nothing about the crash is accidental.  But who would want to kill an Amish deacon and two of his children? He leaves behind a grieving widow and a young boy who clings to life in the intensive care wing of a hospital, unable to communicate.  He may be the only one who knows what happened that night.  Desperate to find out who killed her best friend’s husband and why, Kate begins to suspect she is not looking for a reckless drunk, but instead is on the trail of a cold blooded killer amid the residents of Painter’s Mill.  It is a search that takes her on a  chilling journey into the darkest reaches of the human heart and makes her question everything she has ever believed about the Amish culture into which she was born.”

I guessed part of the ending but not the whole ending.

I am really happy that there is one more book in the series and I have that audio book on hold.  Once it’s available I am sure I will be listening to it.  This is one of my favorite series of murder mysteries…I really don’t know why…I think I’ve just read enough that the characters have started to feel like people I know.

    I am totally hooked on all of Linda Castillo’s books and have read all of them. I got started with a $1.99 special on my Nook, then when they were more expensive I broke down and went to the library to check them out. She is a very compelling writer.
