    3. This is the second book I have read by this author and I enjoyed this book even more that the first. There are many of the same characters carried forward into this book from the first. I found that I was even more connected to the characters in this novel than the first and I found the story more captivating as well. I am looking forward to reading the third book in this sudo-series.

    4. Stella Crown Mystery, #2. Read by Tavia Gilbert. 2005. Stella Crown is a motorcycle riding, Pennsylvania dairy farm girl. Due to an accident on her bike, she finally concedes she needs help while she heals. Lucy, a Menonite widow and mother , becomes her new hire. Now trouble begins. There is graffiti, fire, in-law problems (Lucy's) and out-law (past motorcycle gang) problems. Money is short and problems are plenty. She has a biker friend, Lenny. What's his secret? Why can't he tell it? Is his s [...]

    5. #2This is the second book in the series and I liked it even better than the first one. If you're thinking of reading the series, start from the beginning because there are a lot of references to events and people in the first book throughout this one. There's not as much drama in this book as the first one had, but the story is very believable. I'm going to read all of them!

    6. I loved this book. Stella's friends are fleshed out more in this book. I have fallen in love with this character and her extended family. Read this series.

    7. Three Can Keep a Secret by Judy Clemens is book 2 of the Stella Crown mystery series set in contemporary Pennsylvania dairy farming country. When Stella hires a new farmhand, a widow with a young daughter, troubles begin. Strangers spray nasty graffiti on her barn, Social Services comes to check if the daughter has a proper environment, and Stella gets an anonymous phone call suggesting the widow killed her husband. Stella really likes the woman, and wants to give her the benefit of the doubt, b [...]

    8. Stella is still recovering from her motorcycle accident at the start of this second mystery in the series. She's also still grieving for the loss of her mentor farmhand Howie. Her doctor advises rest, but that's hard to do when one has to run a dairy farm to make a living.As luck would have it, she does find a suitable farmhand and hires Lucy Lapp, a widow and mother. She's hardworking and competent with milking and other chores. Events soon heat up, however, when it becomes clear that members o [...]

    9. More thoughtful than most mysteries I've read lately. A bit grim at times, but not overly so. Stella has has a lot to deal with in her life lately and now she finds her self suspecting her newly hired hand as a possible murderess. Also, Lenny, her biker friend and part owner of bike shop, is starting to act out of character.While Stella starts doing some investigations to help her friend and new employee, she does it more discreetly and smarter than many cozy heroines do. This is not a cozy - at [...]

    10. This second in the Stella Crown series has Stella running ragged as she hires a much needed replacement for Howie. She settles on Lucy Lapp a small but sure Mennonite woman who comes with a little more baggage than just her daughter Tess. Stella's good biker friend Lenny and Lucy take a liking to one another almost instantly but somethings going on with Lenny, leaving Stella little sleep again this week. Not quite as good as the first, this second book seems a bit rushed but still very interesti [...]

    11. Stella Crown and her friends are great characters. They are real people and written with great sympathy. They are flawed and likable. If I came across some of them as a group, I'd probably walk out of my way to avoid them. Yet I love them in these stories. Which goes to show you how often you should not judge a book by its cover. Stella is a tattoo lover and sports some interesting ones of her own from the description; wish I could see the one on her neck! I've read each of the books in the seri [...]

    12. While some of the plot and events mimic the first Stella Crown mystery, Clemens makes sure that Stella and other secondary characters develop - and avoids a trite romance in the process.I'm going to keep reading. Motorcycle mama dairy farmers make strangely appealing detectives. Clemens' mysteries would appeal to Donna Andrews fans, though not quite so screwball.

    13. "Three Can Keep a Secret" is the second book in the Stella Crown series by Judy Clemens. I read the review of the first book and then decided to read the book. I'm so glad I gave the book a try. I've ordered all of the Crown series and am looking forward to more in this series. I love the characters and the location of the series. Well done, Ms Clemens!

    14. I loved the first book in this series so much, this second book was a definite let down. A big effort was made to be politically correct and not enough effort was made to create a rich and captivating mystery like she did before. I'll give her one more try and hope the magic returns.

    15. Better than the first in the series! I really enjoyed the justice that occurred with the wrapup at the end. Lots of mentions of Nick, but no appearance implying a strong likely reappearance in the third installment.

    16. The second Stella Crown mystery. Really need to be ok with lots of dairy farming info, but a good read generally and relaxing, something I am looking for now as we prepare for our journey cross country once again.

    17. 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.

    18. Fantastic! I love Judy's style of writing and I really get into her characters! But what is next for this hot headed dairy farm owner?

    19. Love these books! This was even better than the first. Stella Crown is a different kind of heroine, and all the other characters are interesting and likable!

    20. I'm really enjoying this mystery series. I'm learning about Mennonite, motorcycles and dairy farming. I never would have expected that combination.

    21. Not much to the mystery, but I like the character (motorcycling dairy farmer) and reading about the farm & community.
