A true page turner
on August 11, 2015
This is the first in this thrilling series. I've read different types of Amish mysteries and I think they are all very good, but this particular series seems very deep and really describes the Amish way of life. Chloe touched my heart and her friendship with Becky really made the story real.
Chloe begins her journey to Appleseed Creek by working for the college. Although she only plans to stay for a short time, you can tell she is excited to make the change. As she is driving, she meets up with Becky, a young Amish girl who is being taunted by a couple of hooligans. Chloe offers Becky assistance and their friendship begins despite their differences. Soon Becky explains to Chloe about her desire to be an artist and that she has left the Amish community to become English.
With no place Togo, Chloe offers Becky a place to stay an offers her comfort during this emotional time. Timothy is Becky's brother and he has left the Amish community as well. He appreciates Chloe taking in Becky and does what he can to help.
Becky tries to find a job, but no one in the community is willing to help her. On the day of a promising job interview, Becky takes Chloe's car and a horrible accident happens. Becky is in trouble now and this causes further separation from her family. When the accident takes the life of the Bishop, Becky is pushed away from everyone and feels that she may have been punished for leaving the Amish community.
Once the investigation begins, certain things are discovered and maybe Becky wasn't responsible for the accident.
Someone has deeper motives and Becky and Chloe fight to uncover the truth.
This was such a heartwarming story, filled with mystery and intrigue. I am a definite fan and look forward to reading more in this 5 star series.
