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.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Typical Amish Novel 17 avril 2012
Par Avid Mystery Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have read a couple of these Amish themed novels (there seems to be more and more of these coming out in Christian fiction) and I find many of them about the same. Although this novel is more of a mystery, I admit, I am a bit of a more "hard-core" murder mystery fan than a fan of the more mundane type of mystery theme. I think the hard part for me (personally) in reading this novel is that the writing was just too simple (maybe, I should use the term "too plain").
I like an easy reading book for diversion but this one borders on being on the boring side. It just seems to move too slow in terms of the unfolding of the mystery. For those who love these sorts of Amish novels, then you will probably like it. For those who have never read an Amish novel, I think this one may not be the best example of the genre as again, it just does not have enough mystery story line for those that really love a good involved "who-done it."

Ok, first off I have to say that this is not the first book in this series. I wasn't aware of that, and there isn't any indication on the cover or back cover description that would alert to that. It's not that you can't read this book without reading the others per say, but it would help the reader to understand a lot of what happened that is alluded to in this book.

Callie has settled in in Shipshe, selling quilts in the shop she inherited and solving crimes. This time, it's a local Amish man who has been convicted of murdering a young girl. He won't say a word in his defense, and Callie, her friends Deborah and some other Amish women know that he isn't capable of murder. But since he won't help them figure out what really happens they have to attempt to discover it on their own. Add to that an older Amish man who suffers from dementia and is claiming that Callie can help him find his missing daughter, and Callie's got a lot on her plate. She's also confused by three men who seem to pop in and out of her life, and her feelings towards each of them.

I like Callie. She's a pretty rounded character, doesn't know everything, and can take instruction with Grace. Sure she gets herself into trouble sometimes, but its a murder mystery, the main characters do usually get themselves into trouble investigating. Her Amish friends are nice too although they seem very outspoken and from the limited contact I've had with Amish women, it just doesn't seem natural to me. But I could be very wrong about that. The policeman, Shane, was a little harsh, and I didn't understand his character at all, but I suppose that could be because I hadn't read the other book(s) in the series and may have missed some background there.

I thought the premise behind this book was very confusing. I couldn't understand why the Amish man Rueben wouldn't help himself. The characters seemed to understand why he did what he did, but it wasn't clear to me at all. And the plot started off almost too slow, and then rushed by haphazardly at the end. I suspect that that contributed to my confusion as well. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't well paced by any means. I did like the way the scenes unfolded and the setup for the investigation. That part of the book seemed very plausible. And since this is an Amish romance it can be considered Christian fiction, but it wasn't too preachy. There were some mentions here and there of following the will of a higher being, but it didn't go on and on about it.

An ok Amish fiction mystery. I wish I would have read the first book first, but I'm sure I'll get around to it at some point.

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!!!!
