(70)Sworn To Silence by Linda Castillo

My reading has decreased a bit and for a little while it is going to remain decreased. First of all, I GOT A JOB!!!!! After a two hour interview this morning I was offered a job on the spot. I will be working for Farmers Insurance in the sales department. On the one hand it is completely different from the Retail I am used to, but on the other hand, it really isn't all that different. I am very excited about this new opportunity.

I was on the road all weekend visiting my Aunt in Hospice, but I did get to listen to an Audio book while on the road.

Sworn to Silence was a fun book to listen to on Audio Book. For one thing, there was no way I could skip ahead to the end to find out whodunit. The narrator did a great job of keeping with the "edge of your seat" writing. Speaking of which, Linda Castillo did a FABULOUS job.

Kate Burkholder is Chief of Police of sleepy little Painters Mill. She has had an easy run of things until one bitterly cold winter night when a dead body is found in a field. Soon another body is discovered. Kate is forced to come to grips with her Amish past in order to find the killer that is terrorizing her town today.

Sworn to Silence is a twisted story with horrific murders set in the heart of Amish country. The writing is superb. The characters are realistic and enjoyable. The story is one that will give you nightmares. Exactly what I have come to love about mystery novels. If you are a fan of Karin Slaughter, you will enjoy this book. It is not a story I would recommend to the squeamish, but if you can handle it, you will love it! I promise!

You've done it again! I loved this one too! Are you tired of reading that? LOL! I didn't see who the killer was at all...and I usually can, so that was great. I loved how Castillo weaved the English/Amish lives together. Great stuff!

The main character of Sworn to Silence is Kate Burkholder who grew up Amish and decided to leave the Amish way of life. She is now the Chief of Police in Painters Mill, Ohio, her former hometown. She has a secret that makes Sworn to Silence a thriller.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
