Amish quilt shop owner Angie Braddock crosses wires with a killer in the latest from the national bestselling author of Murder, Plainly Read...
Spring has arrived in Holmes County and Angie couldn’t be happier. She’s got great friends, a thriving business, and is in the perfect relationship with Sheriff James Mitchell. The only thing raining on her parade is her mother drafting her into a massive home renovation project—and using their sudden mother/daughter bonding time to comment on Angie’s ticking biological clock.
The house’s repairs and upgrades between the Amish craftsmen and their Englisch counterparts are proceeding well until a tremendous shock comes to the workers when the electrician is found dead on site. With the sheriff suspecting foul play, it falls to Angie to root a killer out of the woodwork. . . .
I think every cozy mystery needs a Nubian goat or two. And a dog. And a cat. And a heroine who converses with them all. You can tell a lot about a person based on what she says to an animal. That's why I love Angie. And so does Sheriff James Mitchell. This is the 5th book in An Amish Quilt Shop Mystery series and the Angie and Mitch's relationship is heating up...if they can just shake loose from a murder investigation once in awhile. Mitch's protective streak is hand carved in his DNA but Angie blithely carries on, danger dogging her heals as faithfully as her French bulldog sidekick, Oliver. Solid mystery, lots of dry wit, a bevy of quirky characters and the sweet lure of romance -- this story has it all and then some. Petunia gives Murder, Handcrafted four hooves up:
Please note: While this isn't a Christian Fiction selection, there's a faith element drawn from the Amish characters. And it's a clean, fun read.
Second note: Though part of a series, Murder, Handcrafted reads well as a standalone. The only spoiler is the continued romantic development between Mitch and Angie and there might be a fleeting reference or two to previous mysteries but they don't reveal whodunit.
