A Plain Death: An Appleseed Creek Mystery By Amanda Flower

I received this e-book from B & H Publishing Group through NetGalley.Com for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this e-book.  The opinions expressed here are my own.


Book Description:

Welcome to Appleseed Creek, the heart of Ohio’s Amish Country, where life is not as serene as it seems.

While her Cleveland friends relocated to Southern California and Italy, 24-year-old computer whiz Chloe Humphrey moves with some uncertainty to Appleseed Creek to direct technology services at a nearby college. Her first acquaintance is Becky, an ex-Amish teenager looking for a new home.

While driving Chloe’s car, Becky collides with a buggy, killing an Amish elder. But what looks like an accident is soon labeled murder when police discover the car’s cut brake line.

Now, Chloe must take on the role of amateur sleuth to discover who the real intended victim was before the murderer makes a second attempt. Becky’s handsome Amish-turned-Mennonite brother, Timothy, a local carpenter, comes in handy along the way. With God’s help, they’ll solve the mystery that’s rocking this small community.



My Thoughts:

A Plain Death is the first book in The Appleseed Creek Mystery series by Amanda Flower. This is the first book by Amanda Flower I have had the pleasure of reading.  When I saw this book that had my two favorite genres: Amish Fiction and Mysteries I had to read it. In the first couple pages of this book the action starts and continues to the end.  A Plain Death is a fast paced book that grabs hold all the way to the end.  Amanda Flower writes with authority on the Amish, Mennonites, and Ohio's Amish country.  Amanda Flower's passion for the Amish genre shines through in her writing.  The characters are great. a myriad of true characters that find strength and peace in their faith.  The dialogue between the characters was fantastic. I found myself laughing out loud in quite a few parts especially parts of the story that include Grandpa Zook.  The writing in this book truly made you feel like you are there watching everything unfold. So I have another author to add to my list of must read.  If you are a fan of Amish Fiction you should check out this book, you will not be disappointed.
