Review: Murder, Simply Stitched (An Amish Quilt Mystery #2) by Isabella Alan

When Angela Braddock enters her quilts in an Amish auction, she never expects one of her neighbors to end up going, going, gone....
Angie is finding her niche as the new owner of her late aunt’s Amish quilt shop, Running Stitch. But as the summer is winding down, so is business. To bolster support for the shop, Angie decides to sell her quilts in the Rolling Brook Amish Auction, including some of her aunt’s most prized works.

The quilts promise to be a hit—but the gavel comes down on the lively event when Angie stumbles upon the body of township trustee Wanda Hunt behind a canning shed. The cause of death: a poisoned blueberry fry pie from Rachel Miller’s bakery table. Now Angie’s closest friend is a murder suspect. With Angie taking the lead, she and the other women of her aunt’s quilting circle set out to patch together the clues and stop a killer set on shredding the simple peace of Rolling Brook.

Includes Quilting Tips!

*~*~*~*~* Review *~*~*~*~*

Isabella Alan (aka Amanda Flower) never ceases to amaze me.  She is an incredibly gifted author with a unique talent for all things Amish.  Her books are wonderful from cover to cover, full of life, color and a knowledge I never expected to have, but can appreciate more than she'll ever know.  I love reading her books because they're like taking a weekend road trip into a world that I've never known, yet feel so at home in.  

Murder, Simply Stitched brings us back to Rolling Brook, Ohio, with all of the characters from book one that we've grown to love.  Angela, the heroine, finds herself wrapped up in a new mystery that's centered around the Amish community and their many domestic talents (which, by the way, are fascinating!).  As she works with those around her to solve the urder of one of the townspeople, we're treated to more insight in to the lives of the Amish, as well as the ver exciting ladies of the town's quilting circle.  

This book is superb and more than lives up to the hype of a follow up book to this incredible series.  I'm thrilled to see what excitement comes to Rolling Brook in her next installment, and cannot wait to get my hands on it!  

Rating:  5 stars 

I received a paperback copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  All conclusions reached are my own.
