This novel is a witty addition to the Amish Mystery series. I think it would be best enjoyed after reading book one, Kappy King and the Puppy Kaper. This way, the reader will feel a connection with Edie, Kappy, and Jimmy from that story, and will understand what happened in their lives a few months before this book takes place.
I had a lot of fun reading Kappy King and the Pickle Kaper. There are some laugh out loud moments, but plenty of serious investigation, too. The author did a great job of keeping me guessing regarding the identity of the guilty party.
I enjoyed the hint of potential romance in the story. It was truly just a hint and definitely left me looking forward to seeing where Kappy’s love life may be headed in the future.
Kappy King and the Pickle Kaper would be a good choice for those who enjoy cozy mysteries and also for Amish fiction fans, as well.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Kathryn “Kappy” King is happy being a plain-spoken unmarried odd-woman-out in her Pennsylvania Amish hometown. Her talent is making the special kapps local women use to cover their hair. But her skill at uncovering trouble in this quiet valley is about to be truly tested . . .
At first, young Sally June Esh’s tragic death doesn’t look like murder. Even in peaceful Blue Sky, collisions between buggies and Englisch cars aren’t unheard of. Still, the Eshes are skilled drivers used to delivering their popular pickles for miles around. And after Kappy notices Sally’s buggy was deliberately run off the road, her ex-Amish friend Edie gets strange texts saying the crash was no accident . . .
Kappy won’t let her community’s silence keep justice from being done. And even though a still-shunned Edie thinks of moving back to the city, she and Kappy start rooting out secrets about the Eshes’ long-time neighbors–and new pickle-producing rivals. But when they learn that Sally’s brother is secretly courting an Englisch girl, their investigation takes a disturbing turn . . .
