While this story is set in an Amish town, this cozy mystery is told from the perspective of a young woman who is not Amish. After finding a dead body, Sissy ends up as the Sheriff’s prime suspect in the murder. I have to tell you, the Sheriff truly annoyed me. He was useless in actually solving the crime, which I guess was the point, since Sissy needed to be the one doing the investigating.
I liked meeting the townspeople through Sissy’s eyes and gathering clues with her and her new friend, Gavin. I was able to figure a few things out, yet the author did keep me guessing till the end. Sometimes the pacing of the story lagged for me and I wasn’t super connected emotionally to the main character. But it was still a cute and easy read, with some witty humor thrown in.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Looking for a fresh start, advice columnist Sissy Yoder heads to small-town Yoder, Kansas, to help in her aunt’s café. But when a milkman is murdered, the newcomer becomes the prime suspect . . .
After Sissy’s rodeo cowboy boyfriend turns out to be more of a rodeo clown, she packs a bag; picks up her Yorkshire terrier Duke; and leaves Tulsa, Oklahoma, bound for her parents’ former hometown. There are still plenty of Yoders in Yoder, Kansas, including Sissy’s aunt Bethel, who owns the Sunflower Café but recently broke her leg. It’s a homecoming of sorts as Sissy arrives to help in the café and reunite with her pregnant cousin Lizzie. Plus she can continue to secretly write her newspaper advice column as seventy-year-old “Aunt Bess.” But it’s Sissy who could use some advice when she finds the milk deliveryman out behind the café with a knife in his back. As the sheriff’s prime suspect, it’s up to Sissy to catch the backstabber herself—before someone else gets creamed . . .
