Falling to Pieces--My Review
Falling to Pieces by Vannetta Chapman
I read them backwards. LOL I read A Perfect Square first which is the sequel to Falling to Pieces. But it was all good!! I love mysteries and Amish fiction and Christian romance and I got all these rolled into one with Falling to Pieces. Callie comes to Shipshewana, Indiana from her home in Texas to sell her aunt's quilt shop....or so she thinks. Callie has known great sorrow in losing most of her family and yet, she finds not only a mystery to solve but friends. True friends who come to help you clean the shop, walk the dog, have lunch or tea together, to quilt a few stitches......Deborah, Esther, and Melinda become friends with Callie quickly and draw her into their Amish homes and hearts.
Callie has a run-in with the editor of the small town local newspaper and even threatens him in public, so when things take a terrible tragic turn, Callie finds herself being hauled off to the local police station for questioning, but Deborah comes to her aid and provides a lawyer and a shoulder to lean on through it all. Can Callie overcome the depression and loneliness? Will she sell the quilt shop or decide to stay in this lovely little town among the horses and buggies, prayer kapps, and quiltings? How does finding Aunt Daisy's prayer journals help Callie?
I highly recommend this book and hope that you will check it out too! It is another one of those which I have found hard to put down.
