I am so excited for this moment! The moment I am able to share with you the amazing cover for Karen Ann Hopkins new book Lamb to the Slaughter. Karen is the author of the YA Temptation series, published by Harlequin Teen, but Lamb to the Slaughter, an adult Amish mystery, will be self-published by Karen in March.
Here is the awesome sounding synopsis for Lamb to the Slaughter:
Lamb to the Slaughter is a story about the intertwining lives of three unlikely people in an Indiana Amish Community and the devastating results when a rebellious teenage girl is found shot to death in a corn field during the harvest.
Serenity Adams is the newly elected young sheriff in the country town of Blood Rock and besides dealing with the threatening behavior of her predecessor, she now has a dead Amish girl on her plate. At first glance, the case seems obvious. The poor girl was probably accidental shot during hunting season, but when the elders of the Amish community and even the girl’s parents react with uncaring subdued behavior, Serenity becomes suspicious. As she delves deeper into the secretive community that she grew up beside, she discovers a gruesome crime from the past that may very well be related to the Amish girl’s shooting.
Serenity enlists the help of the handsome bad-boy building contractor, Daniel Bachman, who left the Amish when he was nineteen and has his own dark reasons to help the spunky sheriff solve the crime that the family and friends who shunned him are trying desperately to cover up. Serenity’s persistence leads her to a stunning discovery that not only threatens to destroy her blossoming romance with Daniel, but may even take her life in the end.
Doesn't the plot sound intriguing? I was sucked in as soon as I read it.
Now, here it is....
Doesn't it look awesome? You can feel the mystery in that cover. I can't wait to read it!
