- Witty Amish Suspense! by Nancee on 6/8/2014
Angie's new business venture operating her late aunt's Amish quilt shop has been a success throughout the tourist season. Angie sets up a booth at Rolling Brook Amish Auction in order to sell some of her quilts and a few of her aunt's prized quilts to keep her afloat throughout the looming winter months. The sudden death of township trustee Wanda Hunt is considered a homicide, and Angie's dear Amish friend is accused of poisoning her. Angie and her Amish quilting circle brainstorm to disprove that theory!
Throughout this tale of mystery and intrigue Angie finds herself in the most bizarre situations, lending a comical element to this Amish mystery. Her "city"dog Oliver takes cover at the sight of a bird, yet is overprotective of her kitten, watching over him like a mother hen. Mischievous twins and a goat named Petunia add to the shenanigans, and provide wacky entertainment throughout the story. Sheriff Mitchell doesn't appreciate Angie's presence at the crime scene or her unsolicited appearances throughout the investigation of Wanda's death, but his gorgeous eyes appear to convey more than irritation. As you might have already gathered, this Amish mystery covers numerous elements that prove to entertain, intrigue, and keep you turning pages to transport you to the next development!
