Vanetta Chapman's Amish Village Mystery series is quickly becoming one of my favorite! The third book, Murder Freshly Baked, is just as good as the first two. The stories center around a shopping and hotel area called Middlebury. The village employs Amish and Englishers and is a peaceful little destination except for the rash of crimes happening on site. First there was Murder Simply Brewed and then there was Murder Tightly Knit. The newest mystery involves threatening emails and letters targeting the freshly baked pies at the village.
Amber, the Village manager, knows this new threat cannot be connected to the two previous issues. Who is writing these terrible poems about poison and why are they focused on her and the pies? Amber is so shaken this time that she doesn't share all the emails with her husband Tate and the local sheriff Gordon. She doesn't even fully confide in her friends and employees Hannah and Pam.
Can they find the poisonous poet before there's a fatality? Will Amber continue to be personally taunted? Find the answers to these questions along with plenty of mystery and suspense when Murder Freshly Baked releases on June 9, 2015. I love these books because they are gentle reads with plenty of intrigue. The characters are well developed and enjoyable. The Village concept is unique and is a great way to combine Amish characters with Englishers.
