There's been another murder on Pumpkinvine Trail in Middlebury. The employees of the Amish Village can't believe there's been a fresh tragedy just as they were settling down from the last one. Vannetta Chapman introduced Amber, Hannah, and the other employees of the Village in Murder Simply Brewed. Now in Murder Tightly Knit, Amber and Hannah find themselves trying to solve the latest crime. Of course local lawman Gordon Avery is on the case but Amber and Hannah feel compelled to look for clues and information at the village. The mix of Englishers and Amish make the Village a unique tourist destination.
A young man named Owen was killed in an unusual manner on the Trail. His close friend Mary, who runs a shop at the village, is acting strangely. There are rumors about a survivalist group that Owen may have joined. The investigation isn't turning up many clues. Will they ever find out who killed Owen? Are other people in danger at the Village?
Amber just can't seem to stay away from the investigation and her employee and good friend Hannah is right by her side. This plot continues to twist and turn. In the midst of the sadness, there is the continuing relationship between Hannah and Jesse. Is marriage in their future? Amber and Tate are technically still newlyweds. Will this latest murder affect their marriage? I enjoyed this easy read. This Amish Village Mystery series is quite different from the typical Amish romance fiction. The mystery moves the story while the romances continue to slowly blossom.
Murder Tightly Knit will be available December 16, 2014.
