The people of Appleseed Creek in the heart of Ohio’s Amish Country are under attack. Soon after the dust has settled on a buggy accident that turned out to be murder, an unknown assailant begins cutting off the long hair of Amish women and the beards of Amish men.

New to the area, computer specialist Chloe Humphrey may not share their customs, but she is certainly alarmed over these crimes against the Amish and worries how such events will impact her growing number of friends who are more connected to that way of life.
In this small community, when Chloe discovers the body of an Amish businessman who was stabbed in the back and whose beard was cut off, she knows that finding the murderer and restoring peace to Appleseed Creek is as much her responsibility as anyone else’s.
Amanda Flower is an academic librarian for a small college in Ohio and grew up visiting the state’s Amish Country with her family. An avid traveler, she has taken trips to Slovakia, Ireland, Israel, and Great Britain. Her 2010 debut, Maid of Murder, received an Agatha Award nomination for Best First Novel.
My Comments and NEWSWORTHY:  

I enjoyed this book, however, I didn’t like it as much as the first book, A Plain Death.  The characters were almost the same although no unique characters were included this time, except a paragraph or so about a young man in a wheelchair.  There was also a character with some mental illness issues.   The mystery aspect was interesting.  In future books, I would like to see Ms. Flower develop the story line between Chloe and her father and stepmother.  I would also like to see a more development between Grandfather Zook and his son-in-law.  I have questions about what is going on with those two and their relationship.  I will definitely keep reading this series  I am routing for Chloe!
The publisher has sent me a free copy to give away.  If you are interested in receiving a copy of this brand new Amish fiction novel by Amanda Flower, please leave a comment noting how many books you read last month (Amish or otherwise) – it can be an estimate.  I will use random.org to choose a winner.  Best of luck!

    So why do we have to waste our rather intricately designed houses and have them subjected to the horrors
    of the overpopulation of dust bunnies. This movement
    includes being able to carry it up and down the stairs.

    However, think on this, suppose you were to create a awesome title?
    I am not suggesting your information is not good, however suppose you added a headline that grabbed
    people’s attention? I mean The Friendly Book Nook ? Blog Archive ? Attention Amish Fiction Lovers – A Giveaway of A Plain Scandal

    create post titles to get viewers interested. You might add
    a video or a related picture or two to grab readers interested
    about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would make your website a little livelier.
