Harmless as Doves : An Amish-country MysteryBook - 2011
"As he goes about his milking chores on a cold October morning, Bishop Leon Shetler daydreams of escaping the Ohio winter and taking a bus to the Pinecraft Amish community in Florida for a vacation in the sun. But his reverie is interrupted when young Crist Burkholder enters the barn, head down, hat in hand, to make a confession: 'I just killed Glenn Spiegle.' 'An Amish murder?' Sheriff Robertson muses. 'Who'd believe that?' But Burkholder stands by his confession, claiming the crime was fueled by his passion for Vesta Miller, the young woman both he and Spiegle so desperately wanted to marry."--P.  of dust jacket.
