Review: Falling to Pieces Vanetta Chapman
Ever picked up a book and didn't want to put it down? Falling to Pieces is one of those books. Just look at the trailer that Zondervan made for Mrs. Chapman's book.
This trailer definitely got my interest. I couldn't wait to order the book. This is the first Amish mystery book that I've read. To my surprise, I truly giggled aloud several times while reading this book. Amusing phrases were sprinkled throughout the book providing a little levity at sporadic intervals. I just wanted to say, "Listen to this!" over and over. This was not met with much enthusiasm by my children who were already reading their own books.
Aunt Daisy, owner of Daisy's Quilt Shop, loved by Amish and Englishers alike.
Callie, Daisy's niece who inherits the Quilt shop. She's haunted by her past. She wants to sell the store and return to Houston.
Deborah, Amish lady who brings quilts to Callie to sell on ebay. She becomes Callie's good friend.
Shane, a hard-nosed detective investigating a murder
and a cast of memorable characters
In a nutshell, Callie comes to Shipshewana to settle her Aunt Daisy's estate. A realtor convinces to open the quilt shop to make it more attractive to potential buyers. Deborah shows up with three quilts she wants Callie to sell on ebay in order to make a higher profit. A snoopy rude man shows up in the shop. The snoopy rude man... oops! Almost spoiled it.
This book has unexpected twists and turns just like any good mystery should. The odd thing is, you know who done it from the beginning. And yet, you don't. He's ruthless and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Can he be stopped before another victim is found?
This is my must-read of October!
I received this book from Zondervan in exchange for an honest review.

May I suggest?
