Murder Freshly Baked, book 3 in the Amish Village Mystery Series, by Vannetta Chapman is being released next week on 06/09/15. This seemed like the perfect time to post my review for Murder Tightly Knit, also from the series.
Murder Tightly Knit, is the second book in Chapman’s Amish Village
Mystery Series. I enjoyed Chapman’s first cozy mystery trilogy, the Shipshewana Amish Mystery Series, so I was sure I would like her newest one. Murder Simply Baked, book one from the Amish Village Mystery Series didn’t disappoint. I looked forward to reading Murder Tightly Knit. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
This novel starts with a death near the Amish Artisan Village that has its manager, Englisher Amber Bowman and Amish friend Hannah Troyer once again “helping” the police uncover the murderer’s identity. Amber and Hannah both have love on their minds. In a sub plot, Andrew Miller has recently returned to the community but is acting suspicious, at least to his brother Jesse. There are several secondary characters that bring the book to life. Such as Pam, Amber’s assistant that has a flare for style.
I like the way Chapman portrays the Amish, like they are no different than other people. There is a lot of detail about Middlebury, Indiana. I felt like I was right there at the Village with the characters as I read. Chapman even includes a character from the Shipshewana Amish Mystery Series. It was nice to see how the characters have grown in their faith and since the beginning of the series. I have to say that I really like the covers for all the books in this series. I think a fan of sweet romance and cozy mysteries would like this story. I enjoyed this book and couldn’t wait to start Murder Freshly Baked.
