This was a fun, cozy mystery full of some very quirky characters! Witty dialogue, a character with down syndrome, and two women who don’t fit in with the other members of the Amish community make this a romp of a mystery story that is unlike any other that I have read. “True dat!” – If you read this book, you will know why that phrase had me laughing out loud!
If you are a fan of cozy mysteries, this would be a good, lighthearted read. There was not a heavy romance thread throughout. The author leaves the possibility of romance open for these characters, yet the focus was on the developing friendship and exploits of Kappy and Edie. I enjoyed this unique tale.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Content to be unmarried and plain-spoken, Kathryn “Kappy” King is an odd-woman-out in the Amish community of Blue Sky, Pennsylvania. But she’s skilled at making the special kappslocal women need to cover their hair. And she might be the only one who can unearth the danger hiding in this peaceful valley . . .
When Kappy’s neighbor, Ruth Peachey, turns up dead in her yard, everyone in Blue Sky believes it’s a tragic accident. Until the Englisch police find the gentle dog breeder was deliberately struck down–and arrest her mentally-challenged son, Jimmy, for the crime . . .
Jimmy’s sister, Edie, returns to Blue Sky clear his name, yet no one will speak to a shunned former Amish woman, much less give her information. Determined to help, Kappy starts digging for the truth among her seemingly-innocent neighbors. But suddenly a series of suspicious “accidents” threatens Edie and the Peachey farm–property Edie is determined to protect for her brother’s future.
Now, as danger looms large in the small community, Kappy must bait a trap for a killer snapping hard at her heels. And Edie must decide whether to make a home once more in the town she thought she’d left behind . . .
