Suspense | Mystery | Inspirational Amish

On a dark and rainy night, Paul Borntrager is heading home from town with his three young children when their horse and buggy are broadsided by a speeding vehicle that leaves the scene and never calls for help. The horse, Paul and two of his children do not survive while the third youngster, David, is in serious condition when the local police arrive at the accident site. Police Chief Kate Burkholder is shocked to learn that her best friend from childhood, Mattie, is married to Paul and the mother of these three children. Now, it's Kate's task to inform Mattie of this devastating tragedy.

As the investigation proceeds, Kate uncovers evidence that the wreck was not an accident, but intentional. Who could possibly want to hurt this humble Amish family? It soon becomes apparent Kate is dealing with a devious murderer, but what is the motive? The deeper she delves into the lives of those involved, the more questions she has about the Amish way of life she rejected 15 years ago.

While investigating this case, Kate must also deal with the discovery of skeletal remains of a man found in an abandoned grain mill. After 17 years, will secrets from the past emerge to destroy Kate's peace of mind? Also at stake is Kate's shaky relationship with John Tomasetti, an agent with the Ohio BCI. The choices Kate makes concerning the elements at play in her life are some of the hardest she's ever faced.

HER LAST BREATH, Linda Castillo's fifth Kate Burkholder novel, is an intelligently written thriller with a deeply emotional plotline and believable characters. The action is fast-paced and gripping as the investigation progresses. Don't miss reading HER LAST BREATH, as well as all the other books in this fascinating series set in Ohio's Amish community.

Learn more about Her Last Breath


An extraordinarily beautiful Amish woman, a dangerous femme fatale, is the central figure in a story that reveals a dark side of Painters Mill and its seemingly perfect Amish world

A rainy night, an Amish father returning home with his three children, a speeding car hurtling toward them out of nowhere.

What at first seems like a tragic, but routine car accident suddenly takes on a more sinister cast as evidence emerges that nothing about the crash is accidental. But who would want to kill an Amish deacon and two of his children? He leaves behind a grieving widow and a young boy who clings to life in the intensive care wing of a hospital, unable to communicate. He may be the only one who knows what happened that night.

Desperate to find out who killed her best friends husband and why, Kate begins to suspect she is not looking for a reckless drunk, but instead is on the trail of a cold blooded killer amid the residents of Painters Mill. It is a search that takes her on a chilling journey into the darkest reaches of the human heart and makes her question everything she has ever believed about the Amish culture into which she was born.

I used to make smoothies with fruit juice and various
kinds of frozen fruit. Because only frozen berries are
safe on the candida diet, I can still have my smoothies,
but I now use almond milk to thin it out. You can taste
the almond flavor.Back in college, my friend, Stela, got
me thinking about nutrition. I was a dancer all my life
(I started when I was 4 years old), and I grew up eating
healthy foods, so I never had to think much about what I
put in my mouth. Stela, on the other hand, had been
struggling with weight issues since she could remember.
Growing up on pizza, take out Chinese food, and donuts,
Stela had no idea what she was doing to her body, until,
after years of crash diets that did nothing but
negatively affect her energy, mood, and sleeping
patterns, she decided to take a nutrition course in

In most cases, before making an arrest a police
officer must read this list of rights to the
suspect. It is called the Miranda warning because of the
1966 Supreme Court decision, Miranda v. Arizona. When
Ernesto Miranda was href="">הסכם
 arrested and questioned by the  police,
the information he gave them  was used against him
at his trial. This  was a direct violation of the
Fifth Amendment of the Bill of Rights. Miranda appealed,
