Murder in an Amish community isn’t a new concept in mystery books, but author Jane Jensen puts an interesting spin on it in her new Elizabeth Harris Mystery series.
KINGDOM COME is the first installment in Jensen’s new series. In this new release Jensen has created an intriguing protagonist and a cast of characters readers will want to follow for a long time. The vivid Pennsylvania setting draws you in.
Detective Elizabeth Harris returns home to Lancaster County after her husband is murdered. Giving up her NYPD badge to work law enforcement in the remote Pennsylvania Dutch country doesn’t lead to the quiet life Elizabeth was hoping for. The discovery of a dead ‘English’ girl in a prominent Amish family’s barn leads Elizabeth to uncover dark secrets in the community When a second body is found, Elizabeth is determined to find the killer no matter how deep their ties are to the community.
Jensen combines the somber, quiet world of the Amish with murder for a fast pace read that keeps you guessing. She blends in suspense, a touch of romance, and a dash of friendship for a well-balanced story. Jensen created Elizabeth as a strong-willed cop, good at what she does. At the same time, she allows Elizabeth to be a woman who battles with her emotions when confronted with feelings for an Amish man.
KINGDOM COME is a spellbinding mystery that is a wonderful beginning to a fascinating new series.
