Murder Tightly Knit By Vannetta Chapman

In a town where Amish and Englisch Mingle every day, a grisly murder leads to mutual suspicion. Can Amber and Hannah find the killer before fear unravels the community . . . and before he strikes again?
Even before she heard of Owen Esch’s death, Hannah Troyer knew something was amiss at The Cat’s Meow yarn shop. The store has been closing at odd times, the ever-dependable Mary isn’t always at her post . . . and an Englisch man has been loitering around back.
Now, as leaves of brown, gold, and orange blanket Middlebury, Indiana, Owen lies dead on the Pumpkinvine Trail. The only clues to the murderer’s identity point in two very different directions—one of them leading right to The Cat’s Meow.
The police call in a federal investigator, but Hannah and village manager Amber Bowman are in no mood to wait for them to figure out what they already know—that no one from the Amish Village killed Owen Esch.
Amber and Hannah need to work quickly to solve the murder mystery and bring harmony back to the Amish community.

I was so ready to return to Middlebury, Indiana and very excited when I received my copy of  Murder Tightly Knit. Vannetta's second book in the Amish Village Mystery is not one to be missed. It's even better than book one.
I love a cozy mystery and this one you can grab your tea and a throw and enjoy on a cool evening, It will have you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
Great characters and it's not predictable as most Amish books are now days. I love that it has a touch of romance as well.
I gave this book 5 stars and recommend it.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
