Murder Simply Brewed - Vanetta Chapman

About the book (Provided by Publisher):  

When the coffee shop manager is murdered in Middlebury’s Amish Artisan Village, two women from different walks of life must join together to solve the mystery. Spring has arrived in Middlebury, Indiana, and Amber Wright is optimistic about the growing profit from her collection of Amish shops---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. Clues that don't add up, a neighbor who is pulled into the midst of the investigation, a town with secrets to hide, and a blossoming romance---all will combine to push Amber and Hannah into unfamiliar roles in order to reveal answers to the mysteries around them.

My thoughts:  

An Amish mystery set in a location not far from where I live?  Yes please!  It seems, that still today, the Amish Christian Fiction genre is exploding on the bookshelves.  One would think that after a few good years it would start to slow down.  But when there's a demand for it, the author's will keep writing it!  :)  

It's hard to find an Amish book that isn't the same as the others...boy/girl relationship, one of them deciding to leave during their Rumspringa, shunning, and coming home full circle. Now don't get me wrong, I love the Amish, they are prevalent in the area where I live. But I can tend to get a little bored reviewing the same thing over and over again.  But that was so not the case with Chapman's latest novel!  Any time you add a little mystery in the twist you are bound to add plenty of excitement for me!

I highly recommend this to any book lovers out there that are like me...looking for a fresh new look at the Amish Christian Fiction genre!  Take a chance on this book, you won't be disappointed!
