When the coffee shop manager is murdered in Middlebury's Amish Artisan Village, two women from different walks of life must join together to solve the mystery. Spring has arrived in Middlebury, Indiana, and Amber Wright is optimistic about the growing profit from her collection of Amish shops---until she receives a call that Ethan Gray is dead. Hurrying over to A Simple Blend, she finds a solitary hole in the front window and the store manager lying next to the espresso machine, dead from an apparent heart attack. All the money is still in his register. When Amber hires a young Amish woman, Hannah Troyer, to take over the shop's duties, the two women become fast friends---as well as amateur sleuths. The police believe Gray's death is a by-product of vandalism, but Amber and Hannah aren't convinced. Clues that don't add up, a neighbor who is pulled into the midst of the investigation, a town with secrets to hide, and a blossoming romance---all will combine to push Amber and Hannah into unfamiliar roles in order to reveal answers to the mysteries around them.

This was a unique book. Much different them other Amish Fiction books. But then I love Amish and Suspense.
Chapman has come up with a fresh story with likeable characters. You will like Amber and Hannah. I love it when Amish and englishers become friends.
I liked the story from being to end. You can read this book in an afternoon.
If you have not had a chance to read Chapman's books yet this one be the one to start with.
I was given a copy of this book by the publishers for my honest review.
