Down a Dark Road by Linda Castillo. Published by St. Martins

There are a ton of Amish romance novels out there, and if that’s what you’re looking for, then this is not the book for you. If, however, you want a story that will grab you by the throat and a heroine that’s too smart for her own good, then you picked up the right book. Chief of police Kate Burkholder knows the Amish community well, she used to be part of it. Her knowledge of the culture and the people allows her access into their world that the “english” don’t normally have access to. Another former member of the community, Joseph King, was convicted of murdering his wife years ago, but he’s escaped prison and now he’s heads home to Painter’s Mills where he takes his five children hostage. Desperate to save the children, Kate puts her own life on the line, only to have King spare her, as he begs her to prove his innocence. Did King really kill his wife or are the police hiding something? Linda Castillo is the gold standard for mystery writers
