I'm not much of a cozy mystery reader or a fan of Amish fiction, but this series is the exception. I read them all over Christmas break Murder, Served Simply: An Amish Quilt Shop Mystery,Murder, Plain and Simple: An Amish Quilt Shop Mystery,Murder, Plainly Read: An Amish Quilt Shop Mystery and pre-ordered the next one in the series (Murder, Handcrafted.)
Angie Braddock has her hands full trying to run the quilt shop left to her by her Amish aunt. She's not used to running her own small business, which is a far cry from her career in Dallas. It is also the time of year when the tourists become fewer and she needs to find a new venue in which to sell her quilts. It comes when she is invited to show her wares at a local auction. She sees this as an opportunity to build her business, but when her best friend, who is Amish, comes under suspicion for murder, Angie must set aside quilt sales and clear her friend's name. She enlists the help of her quilting circle, a group of Amish women who were her aunt's closest friends, to clear Rachel's name.
Alan has crafted a book that is a joy to read--it is lively, funny, a peopled with a cast of characters that include Angie's French bulldog Oliver and his best friend, Petunia the Nubian goat.
She also writes as Amanda Flower, author of The Final Reveille (A Living History Museum Mystery)
