When Stella Crown hires a new farmhand to help run her Pennsylvania dairy business, she gets more than she bargained for in a Mennonite widow who arrives burdened not only with grief, but with rumors of infidelity and murder. And a young child. Before you know it, Stella, battling deep sorrow herself over the loss of her long-time friend and employee Hank as well as worries over her shaky finances, copes with an influx of nasty in-laws, heartbroken beaus, and spiteful vandalism. It all strikes Stella as an empty vendetta. Maybe. Determined to protect herself and her farm, Stella sets out to discover the truth while trying to give her new employee a respectful benefit of the doubt. Meanwhile, Stella's good friend and fellow biker, Lenny, is riding a crisis. At one moment jovial, the next angry and suspicious, Lenny is haunted by pain and secrets he won't share with Stella. His bizarre behavior is soon complimented by vicious attacks on his home and his business. ''Three can keep a secret, if two are dead'' is a saying that suddenly gains new and terrible meaning.

Good blend of information about Mennonites and bikers. It seems a strange combination, but the author is of that faith, and the rest I surmise she has knowledge of. Strong characters. Story was soft, but well developed. Read full review
