"Paul Gaus: Tony Hillerman of the Amish."--Christian Science Monitor
"A sensitive account of the impact on this community [the Amish of Holmes County, Ohio] when outsiders (that is, the cops) descend to deal with an Amish youth who has confessed to the murder of his fiancée's older, richer and very persistent admirer."--The New York Times Book Review
"Gaus spins a fine mystery with a strong background of Amish faith and plenty of detail on the difficulties the Amish face in the modern age."--Booklist
"Can the professor and pastor come to the rescue of their friends, the Amish, and help unravel this mystery and save an Amish man from a hard life in prison for a crime he couldn't possibly have committed? Will Vesta and Crist finally be able to be together as they want and have a happy life together? You will be hanging on until the last page to find out.... I really love this series."--Night Owl Reviews
"Wise and foolish, timid and courageous, warm and human, each of Gaus's characters is true to his or her distinct background, but escapes the limitations of religious and ethnic stereotypes.... Harmless as Doves is a gentle, intriguing story, sometimes funny, often sad, and always loving. I enjoyed it all the way to the end."--...what reenie reads blog
