This is the second book I’ve read by Amanda Flower and I am hooked! It has my favorite elements of Amish and cozy mystery.
Welcome to Appleseed Creek, the heart of Ohio’s Amish Country, where life is not as serene as it seems.While her Cleveland friends relocated to Southern California and Italy, 24-year-old computer whiz Chloe Humphrey moves with some uncertainty to Appleseed Creek to direct technology services at a nearby college. Her first acquaintance is Becky, an ex-Amish teenager looking for a new home.While driving Chloe’s car, Becky collides with a buggy, killing an Amish elder. But what looks like an accident is soon labeled murder when police discover the car’s cut brake line.Now, Chloe must take on the role of amateur sleuth to discover who the real intended victim was before the murderer makes a second attempt. Becky’s handsome Amish-turned-Mennonite brother, Timothy, a local carpenter, comes in handy along the way. With God’s help, they’ll solve the mystery that’s rocking this small community.My Comments: Loved, loved, loved this book! The story left me with lots of questions (ready for a sequel?) that I care about. The characters engaged me pretty much from the beginning. I love that Ms. Flower doesn’t have perfect characters. She usually has a character in a wheel chair, several of the characters surprised me at one point or another in the book – not totally predictable, which I like. I read this book in a weekend – even though there were over 300 pages. I want to more of Chloe’s background – which up to now has been kind of secretive; I want to know what is going on between Becky and Aaron, and I want to know what the future holds for the Amish in Appleseed Creek, along with Ms. Chloe.This book will be released July 1, 2012. I HAVE ONE COPY TO GIVE AWAY! Please leave a sentence comment on why you would like to have this book and you just might get it!!!! You will have until June 30, 2012 to get your entry in!
