My wife and I have enjoyed a series of books by Linda Castillo.
The main character is Chief of Police Kate Burkholder. She was born Amish but left in her late teens. She gets her life in order and becomes a police woman. She joins the police force in the area and town that she grew up in. The series starts with her when she becomes the Chief of police.
There's a lot of Amish who are compelled to shun her. And a lot of crimes going on.
“‘A gun-toting, cursing, former Amish female chief of police' stars in this excellent first in a new suspense series . . . Adept at creating characters with depth and nuance, Castillo smoothly integrates their backstories into a well-paced plot that illuminates the divide between the Amish and ‘English' worlds.”
―Publishers Weekly (starred review).
There is about six or seven books in the series so if you start at Sworn to Silence and enjoy it..........it's like 'money in the bank'.
This is not a Romance novel they are well written often violent thrillers.
If you have a series you enjoy this would be a good thread to share.
