A few months ago, I was delighted when my friend Charity from Michigan told me that Shipshewana is a real place with a real weekend market. I only wish I were closer to visit!
Picking wildflowers turns to tragedy when Esther and Deborah, Callie's Amish friends, find a young woman floating in the pond. Reuben, Esther's future brother-in-law and the owner of the land, and the authorities are called in. Reuben refuses to cooperate with police. His silence leads to his arrest. Is he just a quiet man or is he hiding something? Can Callie, Deborah, and Esther find the true killer?
As tensions rise, an elderly Amish man comes to the quilt shop and begs help from Callie to help him find his dochder (daughter). He seems disoriented; Callie calls his son to pick him up and is told that there is no daughter. This seems like a disruption in the plot. How does this fit into the story?
Wondering if it's your style? You can read the first couple of chapters here to help you decide. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. You can be sure I'm looking forward to the next book in the series, Material Witness.
Disclaimer: I received this book from Zondervan in exchange for an honest review.
