Adah Knepp wants nothing more than to make music. It's all she's ever desired, to sing and play the guitar and write her own songs. (Read more...)
That's a dream that will never come true in the confines of her strict Amish community, but then she meets Jackson Hart, and all of a sudden she finds the chance for a different kind of life: a real stage, a real guitar, and a real opportunity to sing her songs to a real audience.
Pursuing her dreams means turning her back on her family and community and saying goodbye to Matthew, the gentle Amish farmer she can't get out of her mind. Is it worth giving up the only home she's ever known to pursue her dreams?

Winter has come to Crozet, Virginia, bringing with it a fresh blanket of snow. Harry and her husband, Fair, are hip deep in their usual end-of-the-year activities: distributing food to needy residents and shopping for outfits for the Silver Linings youth organization's annual fundraising gala. (Read more...)
Buried beneath the white stuff are dark secrets from Crozet's past, and Harry and her posse of pet detectives are determined to sniff them out. Two Silver Linings mentors have been found dead in suspicious circumstances. As if that weren't enough to chill the bones of the locals, a pair of severed human fingers has turned up in a pencil jar in the bookkeeper's office at St. Cyril's church.
What does this grisly display have to do with the mysterious disappearance of Harry's high-school Latin teacher, a quarter of a century ago? Maybe it's nothing; but when the animals make another gruesome discovery in the woods behind Harry's farm, it becomes clear that terrible crimes have been committed in Crozet, and somebody has gone to great lengths to cover them up. It's time to stop shoveling snow and start digging for clues.
