'Vannetta Chapman keeps the action suspenseful, and the who-done-it mostly unpredictable as her Amish and English characters work together to solve the mystery. Out of even such dreadful circumstances come moments of grace: between Amber and her Amish employee Hannah and between Amber and Tate, who had each given up on love.” (BookPage)

Amber hires Hannah, a young Amish woman, to take over managing the coffee shop. Hannah hears some rumors among other workers and shares what she learns with Amber. A friendship develops between the two women as they share clues they uncover. Hannah also begins to notice her best friend Jesse has become a man while she wasn’t looking, and the two may have more than friendship in their future. Amber shares her beliefs with local law enforcement, but without proof they don’t believe her. She and Tate spend a lot of time together hashing over the clues they’ve gathered. As the case comes to a head, Amber realizes she loves Tate and wants a future with him, but will she survive the culprit’s next attempt?
I really liked the romance that developed between Tate and Amber. It was nice to see romance budding between two middle-aged people. I also liked the mystery element of the story, although I think it got bogged down a little bit with many details about the village and its workings. Maybe those with a love of all things Amish will find those details more interesting. The advice dispensed by Hannah’s mother also was wise and biblical, which I really appreciated. I look forward to the next mystery due to be released in December, titled, Murder Tightly Knit.
This is a heartwarming whodunit with both Amish and English characters, working together to solve the mystery of a murder of one of the employees of the Village. MSB is a strong, well written, emotional, inspiring and educational novel as Vannetta has so brilliantly included some teachings of the Amish ways. I absolutely fell in love with all the interesting and colorful characters and the story line moves along so smoothly, it keeps you wanting to find out what happens next instead of laying the book down!
I enjoy a good ending and I guarantee you will not be disappointed with this one! I loved this book and I highly recommend it to all Amish and English loving readers!
You did an awesome job, Vannetta, and I look forward to reading more of your books.
