Vanetta Chapman in her new book “Murder Freshly Baked book coverMurder Freshly Baked” Book Three in the Amish Village Mystery series published by Zondervan gives us another adventure with Amber Wright and Hannah Troyer.

From the back cover:  When delicious baked goods become lethal, a trail of poetry leads to a sweet-toothed killer.

Don’t taste it / Don’t share it /Just throw it away / If you try my bakery pie / You won’t live to see another day.

The Amish Artisan Village of Middlebury, Indiana, might be the last place you would ever expect to find a murderer. But Amber has been managing the Village for decades and there’s nothing she hasn’t seen. Or so she thought.

When poetic notes begin appearing around the bakery, warning that some of the pies have been poisoned, Amber is as confused as she is concerned. Who poisons pies? And more to the point, who leaves poems of warning after they’ve done it? When Amber decides to help the police track down the sweet-toothed saboteur, she enlists Hannah Troyer for another round of Amish-style detective work.

Can Amber and Hannah help the police before the Poison Poet strikes? Both women will need to draw on their faith to preserve the peaceful community they’ve built in Middlebury . . . and to protect the girls who work in the Amish Artisan Village.

Poison pies? Who would want to poison pies and why? Welcome back to the Amish Artisan Village in Middlebury, Indiana, a small community where Amish and English work hand in hand to serve numerous tourists throughout the year.  There is a poet, who has access to the bakery, leaving poems about poison in the pies. Not only that this “Poison Poet” is aware of all the actions taken by both Amber and Hannah. This is a cozy mystery that, I believe, will keep you guessing. In addition there are other events that are challenging the women that will also keep you guessing. I think that this is the best of the three books by far. Ms. Chapman really has written great characters in Amber and Hannah and they draw us into the story and keep us there. Make yourself a big bowl of popcorn and settle in comfortably in your favorite chair as you are going to be there for a while as you are totally engrossed in this winning mystery from Vannetta Chapman.
