Review:

I'm always a sucker for any Amish-themed book, so naturally I was interested in reading Murder Freshly Baked by Vannetta Chapman, which is book three in the Amish Village Mystery series. You might recall me reviewing the first book Murder Simply Brewed awhile back, which I enjoyed reading, but for some reason I missed out on reading book two, Murder Tightly Knit. Of course, this didn't stop from reading third installment.

Set in the Amish Artisan Village of Middleury, Indiana, Murder Freshly Baked centers on Amber Bowman, the manager of the shopping village. It seems someone has been sending startling poetic notes about the bakery, warning customers that the pies are poisoned!

While the police are on the case, Amber decides to start her own investigation and once again teams up with Hannah Troyer, the Amish woman whom runs the coffee shop. After Ryan Duval is murdered, Amber suspects that an employee that works for Amber might be the killer.

The author, Vannetta Chapman, does a great job crafting a mystery that is clean-cut and for featuring two intriguing sleuths. Amish fiction typically are just a romance novels, so I'm thrilled to read something new. Murder Freshly Baked is just as good as the first book, Murder Simply Brewed. (I haven't read the second book.) Thanks to wonderful characters and twists &turns, Murder Freshly Baked is a delight to read.
