Falling To Pieces
A Shipshewana Amish Mystery book 1
by Vannetta Chapman
-From the back cover-
NOT YOUR USUAL BUGGY RIDE!
Deborah Yoder needs to sell her quilts. Callie Harper reluctantly inherited her aunt's quilting store. Deborah is Amish, tall, and hearty, the married mother of five. Callie is English, petite, young, and single. They form an unlikely partnership when Deborah reveals her plan to auction her quilts …
online … in a town where few residents even have electricity.
In the tiny community of Shipshewana, what could be more implausible?
And when circumstances and a relentless detective point to a surprising prime suspect, Deborah and Callie set aside their differences and work together in an attempt to solve the mystery and catch a killer.
In Falling to Pieces, the first in a three-book series, author Vannetta Chapman blends the best components of Amish fiction with a great who-done-it twist. You'll be glad she did.
Two women, an auction, a dead body, and one friendship quilt. Shipshewana will never be the same.
What delightful mystery!
I wasn't sure exactly how you could mix a murder mystery and Amish fiction but Vannetta Chapman pulled it off! From the first page to the last I was hooked.
This book really is the quintessential Amish book with the sweet family and faith influence that we have come to expect from the genre but it also serves up a nice dash of mystery.
This Book earned a 4.5 Bark rating.

The two women along with some unlikely help, in the form of a newspaperman and the cop that roughly questioned Callie after she discovered the body, work together to find out just who is breaking into the quilt shop and other businesses, what the connection between Callie and the break-ins is, and just who really did kill Roger Stakehorn.
This book really has it all, a mystery, the Amish, quilting, a light touch of romance, and even a great dog!
I, myself, am going to be looking for the next book in this series, I gotta find out what happens to Callie and Deborah next!
