Murder Tightly Knit
By Vannetta Chapman
When a local Amish man is found dead, the Middlebury Amish Artisan Village comes under suspicion. Two amateur sleuths—one Amish, one English—will have to work quickly to keep fear from dividing their community.
As fall blankets the Pumpkinvine Trail with leaves of brown, gold, and orange, a local Amish man is found dead on the path. The only clues to the murderer’s identity point in two very different directions—toward the local survivalist group and toward the Amish Village—specifically the village’s knitting shop, The Cat’s Meow. The police call in a federal investigator, and he quickly puts everyone on the suspect list. Amber Wright and Hannah Troyer know who isn’t guilty—they know this community down to the last buggy, but can find the guilty party before someone else is in danger?
While Hannah helps Amber solve the mystery, she and Jesse Miller continue courting. But when Jesse’s prodigal brother returns to their farm, Jesse becomes distracted by family troubles. He and Hannah will have to overcome the tension in order to keep their relationship alive. And Amber and Hannah will need to work quickly to solve the murder mystery and bring harmony back to the Amish community.
What I think!
Middlebury Amish Artisan Village is in a tailspin because someone was murdered in this little Amish community, and finding out whodunit may not be that easy. But Amber Wright and Hannah Troyer are going to try their best to find out the criminal, to keep Middlebury Amish Artisan Village calm and in order. But who can stay calm where there has been a murder?
Vannetta Chapman is one of my very favorite authors, and I am really enjoying this new series! I love that she takes a quite little Amish community and stirs up trouble, making the story an Amish tale with a twist! As I read this book, the characters started feeling like friends and family, and I really wanted to find out who left this body in the beautiful fall leaves of this community. Ms. Chapman keeps you in suspense and for me, that means keeping my nose in the book until the very last page! You do not want to miss this exciting new series from author Vannetta Chapman, and while you are checking out Murder Tightly Knit, don’t forget to check out the first book, Murdered Simply Brewed!
