Series: A Shipshewana Amish Mystery
Publish Date: 9/4/2012
Tragedy strikes on the opening night of the Fall Crafters Fair when a woman is killed in the parking lot of Daisy's Quilt Shop, and the only material witness is one of Melinda Byer's boys. The investigation takes a more bizarre turn when detective Shane Black becomes convinced the killer was actually after Callie.
This time it's a madman loose in the largest crowd of the year, and he's looking for something or someone. If they can't figure out what, one of Deborah and Callie's close circle of friends may be next.
Masked identities, antique quilts with hidden messages, an Amish boy whose handicap makes him stronger, one brave dog, and a possible hidden treasure ... this time it's nonstop action, danger, and a dash of romance.
My first thought was that this is not the typical Amish book for me. I have never read an Amish mystery book but this one had me from the beginning. When little Aaron Byler witnesses the killing in the parking lot of Daisy's Quilt Shop while he is waiting on his siblings to return from looking for the lost wallet the mystery begins. This book again shows how the Amish community comes together and I mean not only the Amish. Their English friends come together with them at their time of need. There will be everything from murder to hidden treasures to lots of investigating.
While reading this book it will have you looking hard at the book waiting for the next thing to happen and then you will have a sigh of relief and the next moment you will be on the edge of your chair again as you are reading page after page.
I did not realize until after I finished reading this book that is was a part of a series, that is how good this book can stand alone. Now, I need to go and read the rest of the series.....backwards.
