Falling to Pieces, Shipshewana Amish Mystery Series #1
Read it. You'll be glad you did.
When I began reading this story, I wasnÃ¢ÂÂt sure if I would enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed reading VannettaÃ¢ÂÂs other series. One of my very favorite books is VanettaÃ¢ÂÂs first novel about the Amish, A Simple Amish Christmas.
No, it wasnÃ¢ÂÂt really anything like A Simple Amish Christmas, but the interaction between Callie Harper and the Amish women she befriends Ã¢ÂÂ Deborah, Esther and Melinda, is entertaining and wholesome.
If I were Callie, I would never have the nerve to do some of the things she doesÃ¢ÂÂ¦ yet it is very believable. Getting involved in the lives of her friends is just what she needs.
Most series are written so that you can pick up any of the books and catch up easily with whatÃ¢ÂÂs happened before. You can probably do this with the Shipshewana Amish Mystery series, but you will miss so much if you do. Get all three books in the series and begin at book one Ã¢ÂÂ Falling to Pieces. YouÃ¢ÂÂll be glad you did.

A delightful Amish mystery!
Falling to Pieces is the first book in the Shipshewana Amish Mystery series. I was delighted by its unique storyline and loved the suspense!
Vannetta Chapman has written an Amish mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end. With well-developed characters, both Amish and English, and a great plot, Falling to Pieces is sure to entertain. I enjoyed this fresh, engaging story and look forward to reading the next book in the series, A Perfect Square!

Not your typical "Amish fiction"
This was the first book I read by Vannetta Chapman, and I have to warn you, it's a gateway drug that may lead you to hand over a good chunk of your free time and book budget! One of the things I really liked about this book is that not everyone is Amish, or trying to be. The growing relationships between characters, both Amish and "Englisch, " feel authentic, and made me look forward to the future books in this series (which I have since devoured). And best of all, the ending was unpredictable. Plenty of reviews will give you an outline of this book's plot; the purpose of my review is to convince you to open this book, and let yourself get to know the down-to-earth folks in Shipshe as they come together to solve a murder in their small town. You just may find yourself thinking of "Amish fiction" in a whole new way.
