Murder Tightly Knit by Vannetta Chapman

Murder Tightly Knit (Amish Village Mystery #2)Murder Tightly Knit by Vannetta Chapman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Just as Hannah Troyer and Amber Bowman believe the Amish Village is going back to normal, after the previous murder investigation, Owen Esch is murdered on Pumpkinvine Trail.

Hanna Troyer already had a feeling something was amiss at The Cat's Meow yarn store. The manager Mary was not being as dependable as she usually was. Closing the store at odd hours and an English man has been lurking about.

Now as fall sets upon Middlebury, Indiana, Owen lies dead on the trail and the clues to the murderer's identity are pointing in different directions. The Cat's Meow being one of them!

The police have called in a FBI agent, but Hannah and Village Manager, Amber, aren't about to wait for them to figure it out. No one from the Amish Village could have possibly killed Owen. Could they? Hannah and Amber stay hard at work to keep the people they love from being suspects, and find the true identity of the killer.

They work together quickly and very had to bring peace back to the little village.

I really liked this book. I liked how I didn't have to read the first book to understand what was happening in this book. I loved the characters, and although most were Amish and I am not, they were easy to identifiy with. The personal trials they go through are not much different to us English.

I also like the way the author, conveying through the characters, put to rest the myths about the amish. They are not freaks because of the way they live, they just simply have a different belief system than most.

Although you don't have to read the previous book to understand the storyline, I would like to read it, and can't wait to read the next one.
