When a local Amish man is found dead, the Middlebury Amish Artisan Village comes under suspicion. Two amateur sleuths – one Amish, one English – will have to work quickly to keep fear from dividing their community.
As fall blankets the Pumpkinvine Trail with leaves of brown, gold, and orange, a local Amish man is found dead on the path. The only clues to the murderer’s identity point in two very different directions – toward the local survivalist group and toward the Amish Village – specifically the village’s knitting shop, The Cat’s Meow. The police call in a federal investigator, and he quickly puts everyone on the suspect list. Amber Wright and Hannah Troyer know who isn’t guilty – they know this community down to the last buggy, but can find the guilty party before someone else is in danger?
While Hannah helps Amber solve the mystery, she and Jesse Miller continue courting. But when Jesse’s prodigal brother returns to their farm, Jesse becomes distracted by family troubles. He and Hannah will have to overcome the tension in order to keep their relationship alive. And Amber and Hannah will need to work quickly to solve the murder mystery and bring harmony back to the Amish community.
Another great mystery from Vannetta Chapman, Murder Tightly Knit revisits the Amish Artisan Village and Pumpkinvine Trail. Hannah and Amber, the amateur sleuths from Murder Simply Brewed, once again find themselves in the midst of a murder investigation. And as they discover clue after clue, Chapman's story is well-paced, which kept me in complete suspense and wondering about the identity of the culprit until the end. All in all, Murder Tightly Knit is an addictive read and I thoroughly enjoyed this second trip to Middlebury, Indiana. (I can't wait to go back in Murder Freshly Baked...) I think anyone who enjoyed Murder Simply Brewed will equally enjoy this novel.
