Plain Murder


GIVEAWAY
MILLER, EMMA
PLAIN MURDER

Fifteen years after leaving her Old Order Amish life, Rachel Mast has returned to Stone Mountain, Pennsylvania. Corporate success didn't bring true happiness, but Rachel also knows she can never be Amish again. Instead, she runs a B&B and tries to help her community in ways they can't help themselves.

But now a gruesome discovery has been made in her Uncle Aaron's cow pasture—the body of prominent Englisher businessman Willy O'Day. Aaron refuses to hire a lawyer, trusting his own innocence, and his faith, to see him through. Rachel isn't so sure, especially give the public feud between the two men. Her relatives won't speak to the police, but they will talk to Rachel—if she puts on a skirt and a bonnet. Rachel knows emotions and entanglements run as complicated in the Amish world as outside it. But as she delves deeper to clear Aaron's name, she discovers secrets that could put her own life in danger.


My Review:

I reviewed the second book in this series earlier this week and I loved it so much I couldn't resist ferreting this one out at my public library and devouring it as well. Loved it just as much even though I knew the whodunit part because of the spoiler in the second book. I didn't know all the wherefores and whys of the murder so I was still gripped right to the very end. I thoroughly enjoyed my second visit to Stone Mill. The author deftly weaves mystery into the day to day life of an Amish/English community. Provoking insights into plain living add an extra zest the story. A captivating cozy mystery well worth the read.

  1. You have got to be a speed reader, that's for sure and certain as the Amish say. Lol. How smart of you to get the first one at the library. I entered for the 2nd one, so either one I win would be fine! I can just visit the library for the other. I'm being rather presumptuous, aren't I? No, positive thinking - that sounds better. ;)

  8. The sounds perfect! I read out loud to my mom on long road trips [which since we are Blessed to live in the middle of no where anywhere is a pretty long trip ;) ] and it's usually mysteries and lately it's been Amish mysteries! This sounds like a perfect selection! :)
