About the book:
A murder is solved and a quiet Amish community must deal with the repercussions. Amid the surprising revelations, can a newfound love survive?

As the search for Perry Borntrager's killer continues, Jacob Schrock feels like his world is about to crumble. Right before Perry went missing, he and Jacob got into a fistfight. Jacob never told anyone what happened that terrible night. He's good at keeping secrets—including his love for Deborah, Perry's sister. But when Deborah takes a job at his family's store and their friendship blossoms, Jacob senses everything is about to be revealed.  

Deborah has been searching for a slice of happiness ever since her brother's body was discovered. When the police start questioning Jacob, Deborah can't believe that the one person she's finally allowed in could be the one responsible for her brother's death. Will she believe what everyone seems to think is the truth . . . or listen to her heart, and hope there is still one more person who is keeping secrets in Crittenden County?

My thoughts:


Found is the final book in The Secrets of Crittenden County series and it ended well. It's been several years since I read the first two books, so that's probably why I didn't feel like I connected as much with this story. The mystery and final wrap-up for the murder was okay. Even though I didn't expect it to be who it was, which was nice, the final reveal was a little disappointing.

I liked the romance and friendship relationships throughout the book. It was interesting to see what choices people made and if certain couples were going to stay together or break up.

Overall, Found was a quick and easy read, so if you enjoy simple Amish stories, you'd probably like it. Amish fiction is one of my least favorite genres, but I've enjoyed this series and do recommend it -- even if this book wasn't as good as the first two (in my opinion).
