Review: Kappy King and the Pie Kaper by Amy Lillard

kappy king pieIf you are looking for fun, laugh-out-loud stories with a bit of a cozy mystery feel, then I definitely recommend this Amish Mystery series. Kappy King and the Pie Kaper is my favorite of the three books that I have read in this series.

Kappy and her friend, Edie, are back to their crime solving ways, complete with the humorous banter that flows so effortlessly between them. I love that Edie’s brother, Jimmy, is a big part in this story. He is a fun character!

The focus in these stories is on friendship and mystery solving. Hints of a possible romantic interest between Edie and Jack are there, but are subtle and lighthearted.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching as Kappy and Edie solved this mystery as only they could!

(4.5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

kappy king pieKathryn “Kappy” King’s skill at making kapps for the Amish women of Blue Sky, Pennsylvania, is unparalleled. But she’s also dangerously good at discovering dark truths beneath this peaceful valley . . .

When an “accident” puts beloved bishop’s wife Alma Miller in a coma, many in Blue Sky are quick to blame struggling widow Frannie Lehman. Both women are the best bakers around, but for years Alma’s boysenberry pies have been more award-winning—and profitable—than Frannie’s. And with Alma out of this fall’s county festival, Frannie’s pie finally wins first prize. But when Alma dies and Frannie’s children fall victim to gossip and bullying, Kappy is determined to uncover the real truth.

Soon Kappy and her outcast friend Edie have their hands full of odd clues. What do Alma’s strange last words mean? Why would someone break into her house just to steal a quilt? Who is the mysterious new piemaker in town—and why is she still in Blue Sky after losing the festival competition? When long-buried family secrets and contested legacies start getting into the mix, Kappy and Edie must work fast before another victim gets a deadly pie in the face . . .
