This is now the 10th book in the Kate Burkholder series and I’m still as fascinated by it as was in the very beginning.

Linda Castillo, delivers a  story that is chilling, engrossing, and just as entertaining as I could have wished for. A Gathering of Secrets started slow, until midway through. From there on it was twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat and didn’t let go until the very end. I honestly did not see the end coming. I thought it was all done, and resolved. Boy was I wrong.

I absolutely love this series. The contrast between Amish and English is fascinating. Their believe is at times hard to understand, but that’s exactly what brings me back again and again. Especially this book, when it’s obvious that not everything is as simple and pure as it looks. For Kate, this case brings part of her past uncomfortably close to the surface. But she handled it in a professional manner, and with a passionate heart she brought justice to the wronged.

I had a hard time putting the book down. And the ending was as satisfying as it was shocking. 

A Gathering of Secrets allowed a closer look into Kate and Tomasetti’s relationship, which I loved. Still, after so many years, they as a couple, were going as strong as ever. Kate and Tomasetti relied on each other, and reached a point where talking about a future together is possible.

I rarely read mystery/thrillers anymore, which I’m planning to change in the upcoming months, but for me this book, this series is one that needs to be on everyone’s tbr who loves this genre.

Linda Castillo’s stories are chilling, fascinating, and sometimes graphic, but they are never boring. 

A Gathering of Secrets – Linda Castillo


When a historic barn burns to the ground in the middle of the night, Chief of Police Kate Burkholder is called in to investigate. At first, it looks like an accident, but when the body of eighteen-year-old Daniel Gingerich is found inside—burned alive—Kate suspects murder. Who would want a well-liked, hardworking young Amish man dead?

Kate delves into the investigation only to find herself stonewalled by the community to which she once belonged. Is their silence a result of the Amish tenet of separation? Or is this peaceful and deeply religious community conspiring to hide a truth no one wants to talk about? Kate doubles down only to discover a plethora of secrets and a chilling series of crimes that shatters everything she thought she knew about her Amish roots—and herself.

As Kate wades through a sea of suspects, she’s confronted by her own violent past and an unthinkable possibility.
