Book Review | A Plain Scandal

My husband grew up outside of Amish country in Ohio and over the years together we have enjoyed many memorable days in Sugarcreek and Berlin, Ohio among the extraordinary Plain people.

A Plain Scandal: An Appleseed Creek Mystery

Therefore, I was very excited to read A Plain Scandal: An Appleseed Creek Mystery which is the second installment in the Appleseed Creek Mystery series by Amanda Flower which skillfully combines my love for the Amish way of life with the twist of a mystery. This is one of those books that will be sure to keep you wide awake at night as the lead character, Chloe Humphrey who is a computer specialist moves to Appleseed Creak which is in the heart of Ohio Amish Country. Bringing the ugliness of the modern world into Amish life, crimes against the Amish people are taking place i.e. a buggy accident is actually a murder and a criminal is cutting the long hair of Amish women and the beards of Amish men. When Chloe discovers that an Amish businessman is the latest victim of this unknown assailant and that he has been murdered she sets about finding out who it is so that the peaceful existence known throughout the community can once again come back to those living in Appleseed Creek.

A Plain Scandal: An Appleseed Creek Mystery is a captivating mystery and I appreciate that the author writes very respectfully as she develops interesting Amish characters that are true to the Plain way of life.

If you are interested in Amish fiction and enjoy a good mystery then you are not going to want to miss reading A Plain Scandal: An Appleseed Creek Mystery. I have not read the first book in this series however I am definitely going to add it to my reading list.
