Présentation de l'éditeur

There’s more to the quaint northern Indiana town of Shipshewana than handcrafted quilts, Amish-made furniture, immaculate farms and close-knit families. When a dead girl is found floating in a local pond, murder is also afoot. And Reuben Fisher is in jail as the suspect! Reuben refuses to divulge any information, even to clear himself of a crime Deborah is certain he didn’t commit. So, with her English friend, Callie—fellow sleuth and owner of Daisy’s Quilt Shop—Deborah sets out to uncover the truth. But the mystery deepens when an elderly man seeks Callie’s help in finding his long-lost daughter, missing since the days of the 1965 Palm Sunday Tornadoes. An old man who has lost his past. A young man who may lose his future. Once again Deborah and Callie find themselves trying to piece together a crazy quilt of lives and events—one that can bring unexpected touches of God’s grace and resolve the tragedy that has shaken this quiet Amish community.

When I started this book I knew I would not be disappointed. I was immediately pulled back to Shipshewana, Indiana, where I was greeted by my favorite characters Callie, Deborah, Esther and Melinda. This time around the ladies are faced with a murder mystery involving their dear friend Reuben Fisher. Ester is engaged to marry Tobias, Reuben's cousin. A young Amish girl is found dead on Reuben and Tobias's land. Reuben is implicated in the girl's death and hauled off to jail. They are determined to help prove Reuben's innocence, but find that it is very difficult because Reuben has decided to not speak in his own defense. Characters from book one make appearances once again: Detective Shane Black, Officer Andrew Gavin, and the ever camera ready Trent McCallister, all trying to solve this mystery. Meanwhile Callie is working on solving another mystery of sorts. She is approached by an ailing Amish man seeking her help in finding his long lost daughter. Whew! Sounds like a lot of "mystery" right? Rest assured all the pieces will fall into place. This book will keep you engaged to the very last page. Enjoy the ride because you will want to book a return trip to Shipshewana! Wonderfully written and equally compelling, Vannetta Chapman has really out done herself. Simply delightful!

This book was provided to me from Zondervan via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

Amish-woman Deborah and her non-Amish friend Callie (who lives in the area since she inherited a quilt shop from her aunt) are about to discover a new mystery. Deborah and fellow Amish-woman Leah discover a young woman floating, dead, in a pond. Their "Englisch" (non-Amish) friend Callie joins the search to solve the crime, a search that becomes more important when Esther's fiancée's cousin Reuben is accused of being the perpetrator. Meanwhile, Callie is approached by a man named Ira who seemingly has dementia. He's claiming to have lost his daughter. Could these two mysteries be connected? But wouldn't his lost daughter now be quite old?

It took weeks for me to inch through the first half of this book. It was creative for the author to combine two popular genres (Amish and suspense), and as someone who has been to Shipshewana, I was really interested in reading it. Despite that, I was surprised that for a suspenseful novel, this one didn't keep my interest as much as it could have. I refused to move on to reading any other book before finishing this one, and that was the biggest impetus to finish. The suspense just wasn't there as much as it could have been. At first, I couldn't quite place my finger on what kept stalling my reading. But then I realized there were two reasons. The first was that many characters were focused on (especially Esther and Deborah), while Callie's storyline, at least in this book in the series, was the most interesting and important. A lot of the sections from these two other characters' points of view could likely have been left out without hurting the book's plot. The second issue for me was that Reuben absolutely refused to speak in response to the charges against him. This was the only reason there was any tension in the mystery, which was frustrating as a reader. Though the reasons Reuben was silent are supposedly explained in the end, they don't seem to be significant or believable enough to explain away his silence. In other words, it seemed that what kept the mystery a mystery ended up not being sufficiently explained away.

To be honest, I much preferred the secondary mystery present in the book. I wish it had been fleshed out more and had been the main mystery. It was such an interesting subplot, and the elderly man Ira was really likeable and three-dimensional, possibly because the author wrote him in homage to her father-in-law. The book really picked up in the second half, though, so I ended up enjoying part of it.

It is nearing the time for Tobias and Esther's wedding. BUT Esther is with her good friend Deborah and stops to pick some flowers with her little girl Leah. Esther spots someone laying dead in the creek on Reuben's (Tobias brothers) land. Reuben clams up and wont say anything-and Tobias cant understand why Reuben wont say anything to defend himself!!! The local owner of Daisy's Quilt Shop - Callie couples with Deborah and Esther to figure out the pieces to the puzzle. An (old man) Ira Bontrager also comes to Callie and asks her to help him find his daughter who had been missing since 1965!!

Does Ira Bontrager find his long lost daughter?? Who is the person found dead in the pond??? Why is Reuben not saying anything despite being in jail??? Callie and Deborah and Esther have solved mysteries before can they solve this one???

Tis is the second book in the series- the first Falling to Pieces!!! Nothing has intrigued me quite as much as this story has to keep me reading to find out all the missing pieces to the puzzle!!!! Vannetta Chapman has a way of writing a story that leaves you feeling as if you are right in the midst of things- where the story is happening- very fascinating writer!!!! Definetly a 5 star book in my opinion!!!!

The Amish living in the town of Shipshewana are shocked when the body of a young woman is found floating in a local pond. They are devastated when Reuben Fisher is arrested as a suspect in her death. Deborah Yoder is convinced he did nothing wrong and she, with the help of her English friend Callie Harper, sets out to try to prove his innocence. Their task won't be easy as Reuben refuses to speak about the case. When not trying to help Deborah, Callie is trying to help an elderly Amish man find the daughter he insists went missing years ago - a daughter no one else seems to know ever existed. Both Deborah and Callie have their hands full and the truth behind the Amish girl's death may be devastating for all involved.

After having read several Amish romances, I was curious to see what an Amish mystery was like and "A Perfect Square" did not disappoint. Author Vanetta Chapman has done an excellent job of blending the Amish life, their English friends, and the mystery. This isn't the type of mystery where you try to figure out who the killer is; instead you find out how the girl died, why Reuben won't talk, and why Samuel is hiding. Chapman takes her time unveiling the story and when the truth comes out it is truly heartbreaking. I think this book would be a good choice for a book club because there could be a prolonged discussion of the actions and decisions of some of the characters, especially Samuel and Reuben. At the end of the book, I'm still not sure whether or not I liked Samuel. After reading the book, my heart ached for so many of the characters. The one thing I didn't like is Callie's tangled love life - three love interests were two too many for my liking.

"A Perfect Square" is a perfect mystery set in the Amish Community.

A gut Englischer-Amish girl sleuth duo. Find a dat's dochder and a young fraa's cause of death within 3 weeks is wunderbaar gut work or Gotte's wille. It would take a woman's eye to solve this case. Readers will live with the fact that someone may fall in lieb with a man. It happens, even among Christians.

A new Amish-mystery writer to me, but I'll be reading more by Vannetta Chapman. Like going back and buying book one. As stand alone, this was fine, but the pleasure of reading a dual-plot mystery set in Indiana Amish country whetted my appetite like an Amish baked black raspberry pie. I've wanted to read more Amish crime/mystery since Coleen Coble's 'Anathema'. I'm reminded of the British `Rosemary & Thyme: Complete Collection' duo, as well as `Cagney & Lacey' but with a horse & buggy twist. Shipshewana, Indiana, style rigs.

Chapman's crime solver females discover a clue that places Callie & Deborah in position of withholding evidence or worse, helping convict their likely innocent friend. Tough decisions in a small Godly community. Descriptions of Shipshe are lifelike. I live near another Indiana Amish & Mennonite community. Images are accurate. Historical aspects added to the story are wunderbaar true. I survived the 1965 Indiana Palm Sunday tornado onslaught, saw the devastation and deaths. Helped clean it up, as a teenager. This author's research is correctly used.

I'm not Amish, but respect their ways. I'm old enough to prefer a book with real pages. I doubt that God will strike down a reader that reads an Amish tale on an e-reader screen.
Good read--I will be looking for the trilogy's third.
This fine new author will be around for a good long time.
