In Middlebury’s Amish Artisan Village, murder is the last thing anyone expects. Can Amber and Hannah find these killers before fear unravels the community . . . or they strike again?
Murder Simply Brewed
Amber Wright is optimistic about the growing profit from her collection of Amish shops in Middlebury, Indiana—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.
Murder Tightly Knit
Even before she heard of Owen Esch’s death, Hannah Troyer knew something was amiss at The Cat’s Meow yarn shop. The store has been closing at odd times, the ever-dependable Mary isn’t always at her post . . . and an Englisch man has been seen loitering around back.
Now, as leaves of brown, gold, and orange blanket Middlebury, Indiana, Owen lies dead on the Pumpkinvine Trail. The only clues to the murderer’s identity point in two very different directions—one of them leading right to The Cat’s Meow.
Murder Freshly Baked
Amber Bowman is thrilled to see the turnout for the Race for a Cure—and relieved to have something to distract her from the “Poison Poet”—an individual who has been sending notes containing bad poetry to warn of poisoned baked goods.
Then Ryan Duvall crosses the finish line of the race—and falls down dead, murdered in broad daylight. But who did it? And why? The police suspect Preston Johnston, but Amber refuses to believe her employee could do such a thing.
Amber once again looks to her young Amish friend Hannah Troyer to help her find the killer—and to determine if it’s the same person leaving the cryptic poems and pies.
