Praise for Lamb to the Slaughter, book one of Serenity's Plain Secrets: "A well-crafted tale of murder begotten by the collision of two incompatible worlds." -Kirkus Reviews


WHISPERS FROM THE DEAD is the powerful and thrilling sequel to Lamb to the Slaughter, in the Amish-themed mystery/thriller 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.
