An extraordinarily beautiful Amish woman, a dangerous femme fatale, is the central figure in Linda Castillo's Her Last Breath, a story that reveals a dark side of Painters Mill and its seemingly perfect Amish world. 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.

This is Linda Castillo’s 5th mystery that takes place in Amish country and features Chief of Police Kate Burkholder. Kate left the Amish community as a teen and entered the police force. She returns to her community as Chief of Police and finds that even though she is not trusted by the Amish community she can certainly relate to them. There are lots of twists and turns (as usual) and just when you think it's all said and done, there's a blindside that few readers will see coming. This is a good series by an author who is gaining a great reputation for mainstream mysteries/police procedurals.

Sometimes life is about taking chances, about putting yourself out there even when you don't know what's going to come back at you.
