Fifteen years after leaving her Old Order Amish life, Rachel Mast has returned to Stone Mill, Pennsylvania. Corporate success didn't bring true happiness, but Rachel also knows she can never be Amish again. Instead she runs a B&B and tries to help her community in ways they can't help themselves.
But now a gruesome discovery has been made on her Uncle Aaron's cow pasture--the body of prominent Englisher businessman Willy O'Day. Aaron refuses to hire a lawyer, trusting his innocence, and his faith, to see him through. Rachel isn't so sure, especially given the long public feud between the two men. Her relatives won't speak to the police, but they will talk to Rachel--if she puts on a skirt and bonnet. Rachel knows emotions and entanglements run as complicated in the Amish world as outside it.

Miller (Leah’s Choice and other Amish-themed romance novels) tries her hand at a mystery, with modest success. Amish-born Rachel Mast has returned to Stone Mill, Pa., after a successful corporate career to open the B&B Stone Mill House, with hopes of turning the village into a tourist destination. Tightfisted local businessman Willy O’Day’s disappearance goes unlamented by everyone except his twin brother, George, but when Willy’s murdered body is found eight months later in a cow pasture, Rachel’s uncle, Aaron Hostetler, the owner of the pasture, comes under suspicion. Aaron’s faith leads him to refuse to defend himself or hire a lawyer, despite Rachel’s pleas, so she takes the case on herself. In the process, she tests her relationship with policeman Evan Parks. Rachel’s struggle to reconcile her traditional upbringing and “Englisher” lifestyle provides this whodunit with its most intriguing element. Agent: Evan Marshall, Evan Marshall Agency. (Jan.)
