Review of "Murder Simply Brewed"

Review of Murder Simply Brewed

by Vannetta Chapman


Spring has arrived in Middlebury, Indiana, and Amber Wright can see profits in sight for her collection of Amish artisan shops—until she receives a call that Ethan Gray is dead. Hurrying over to A Simple Blend, she finds a single hole in the front window and Mr. Gray dead from an apparent heart attack. All the money is still in his register. Hannah Troyer takes over the shop’s duties, and she and Amber become fast friends as well as amateur sleuths. The police believe Gray’s death to be a by-product of vandalism, but Amber and Hannah aren’t so easily convinced.
Old Testament clues that don’t add up, a neighbor who is pulled into the midst of the investigation, a town with secrets to hide, and blossoming romance—all will combine to push Amber and Hannah into unfamiliar roles in order to solve a mystery and bring peace to the Amish community.

My Review:   Coffee sounded delightfully  tempting as I read Murder Simply Brewed by Vannetta Chapman.   The manager of the specialty coffee shop in the Amish Village is found dead of an apparent heart attack in the coffee shop and soon Amber, Hannah, Jesse, and Tate are on the search for the killer.  The police believe the death was natural and that there is no killer to search for but that doesn't stop these folks!   Two are Amish and two are English and they may even develop a lasting friendship in the quest for truth and justice.   
Vannetta Chapman has not written a book that disappointed me yet and this one is certainly no exception.   I was totally hooked and loved trying to figure out who did what and how they did it!  So grab a cup of coffee and sit a while because you won't want to stop reading until you are at the end.
I received a free pdf copy of this book from netgalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
