This book was provided to me from Zondervan via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
It took weeks for me to inch through the first half of this book. It was creative for the author to combine two popular genres (Amish and suspense), and as someone who has been to Shipshewana, I was really interested in reading it. Despite that, I was surprised that for a suspenseful novel, this one didn't keep my interest as much as it could have. I refused to move on to reading any other book before finishing this one, and that was the biggest impetus to finish. The suspense just wasn't there as much as it could have been. At first, I couldn't quite place my finger on what kept stalling my reading. But then I realized there were two reasons. The first was that many characters were focused on (especially Esther and Deborah), while Callie's storyline, at least in this book in the series, was the most interesting and important. A lot of the sections from these two other characters' points of view could likely have been left out without hurting the book's plot. The second issue for me was that Reuben absolutely refused to speak in response to the charges against him.Read more ›
Does Ira Bontrager find his long lost daughter?? Who is the person found dead in the pond??? Why is Reuben not saying anything despite being in jail??? Callie and Deborah and Esther have solved mysteries before can they solve this one???
Tis is the second book in the series- the first Falling to Pieces!!! Nothing has intrigued me quite as much as this story has to keep me reading to find out all the missing pieces to the puzzle!!!! Vannetta Chapman has a way of writing a story that leaves you feeling as if you are right in the midst of things- where the story is happening- very fascinating writer!!!! Definetly a 5 star book in my opinion!!!!
Many of the characters, from book one, are back, including Deborah and Callie...but you don't have to have read the first book, to enjoy this one.
A young woman is found floating in the pond of an Amish man, Reuben Fisher. He refuses to speak about what he knows. Deborah and Callie work to clear him.
A second mystery, of an old man who lost his daughter years before and Callie decides to help, will help solve the mystery of the dead girl.
The most difficult part, for me, was trying to figure out Samuel. (You must read the book, to understand.) Vannetta brought it all together, in a way only she can.
I look forward to moving on to book three, Material Witness.
