Vannetta Chapman in her new book, “Murder Tightly Knit book coverMurder Tightly Knit” Book Two in the Amish Village Mystery series published by  Zondervan gives us another adventure with Amber Wright and Hannah Troyer.

From the back cover:  In a town where Amish and Englisch Mingle every day, a grisly murder leads to mutual suspicion.

Can Amber and Hannah find the killer before fear unravels the community . . . and before he strikes again?

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 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.

The police call in a federal investigator, but Hannah and village manager Amber Bowman are in no mood to wait for them to figure out what they already know—that no one from the Amish Village killed Owen Esch.

Amber and Hannah need to work quickly to solve the murder mystery and bring harmony back to the Amish community.

Welcome back to Middlebury, Indiana and The Amish Village where it is peaceful and quaint and everyone lives together amicably. Well, normally, that is, when there isn’t a murder. Amber and Hannah have their hands full with this one. Owen was killed with a crossbow arrow through his chest. This is quite a mystery. The police have a suspect, in jail, but that can’t be right, can it? There definitely is a murderer on the loose and if he is not stopped then there will be more murders soon. And, somehow, it all points to someone in the community, but who? “Murder Tightly Knit” is going to keep you flipping pages as you get involved with this mystery and try to figure out who the murderer really is. Ms. Chapman has done an outstanding job in giving us a first class mystery where she really puts Amber and Hannah through their paces.  I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.
