Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week's pick: Shunning Sarah by Julie Kramer

Due out August 7, 2012

Product Description taken from Amazon:

The latest thriller in Julie Kramer’s bestselling crime fiction series, featuring the smart, funny, and compulsively entertaining television reporter, Riley Spartz.
A young boy’s freak accident leads Riley to investigate a homicide in the closed religious society of the Amish.
No women near the small Minnesota tourist town have been reported missing and because the victim’s face is damaged, she can’t be identified without the help of a forensic artist. When she finally is recognized as Sarah Yoder, a young Amish woman, the police have difficulty investigating the case because the Amish believe in forgiveness rather than prosecution, and no one in the community is talking. Because of the biblical ban on graven images, Sarah’s family objects to her picture being used by the media even though the police believe the publicity might lead to tips. But when Riley finds a clue the cops miss, she uncovers a dark web of fraud and deception in the community—driven by motives as old as the Bible: sex and money.
Shunning Sarah, the fifth installment in Julie Kramer’s bestselling series, which includes Killing Kate and Silencing Sam, will keep readers turning pages while they wonder what will happen next…

I wondered if I had just missed this series, but going back and looking it up, I was aware of it. I like the sound of this particular entry. Have you read any of her other books?

Never read this series before, but crime series are my guilty pleasure. I cannot get enough of them. I'll have to look up the first in this one because this looks interesting.

Mind checking out my WoW?
