Material Witness - eBook
Super great series !!
If you have not read this Shipshewanna Mystery Series you are missing 3 excellent books. I had not ordered them in the beginning because it mentioned a murder, however all 3 in this series are so great, I can or could hardly put them down. I am just finishing the last few chapers in Material Wittness and read until 4 a.m. Great books and I recommend all 3 in this series.

"Material Witness" is the third novel of the Shipshewana Amish Mystery series. It carries on with the characters we have all grown to love; Callie, Deborah, Esther, Melinda, Shane and Gavin, and continues to wind their lives together in a beautiful story of life and love.
For me, this novel is about puzzles. Big ones, like why do children fall ill with serious illnesses, why does evil exist in the world. Middle-sized puzzles, like how can Englischers and Plain people become real friends, the kind that are almost family....how does a new marriage become so quickly "normal" that it settles long-lived-with fears with just a glance or a touch at the right time. And the small puzzle in this book that's also the biggest puzzle of all begins with a last will and testament and a set of unusual quilts.
I will never hesitate to recomment a book by Vanetta Chapman, whether I have read it or not. I have found her stories to be compelling, riveting, and personal. These characters have been brought to life with her words, and I grow to care for each of them as if they have become a part of my family too. How does she do that? There we go again, another puzzle!

Great Amish mystery--don't miss it!
Callie Harper and her Amish friends encounter another murder mystery in Shipshewana, Illinois. Only this time MelindaÃ¢ÂÂs wheel-chair-bound son, Aaron, witnessed the crime. How can they keep him and Callie safe while helping to catch the culprit. Set against the lively backdrop of the Fall Crafters Fair, the tension ramps up as the crazed killer makes demands they struggle to meet. The author pieces together a patchwork of a story filled with suspense, adventure, drama, memories, romance, troubles, hopes, and fears, which eventually fall into place like the hidden message of the antique quilts Callie inherited.
Material Witness is the third book in Vannetta ChapmanÃ¢ÂÂs endearing series of cozy mysteries, the second of which won a Carol Award for best mystery of the year. I asked her if there would be another, and she said yes, next March. IÃ¢ÂÂm glad because I want to join these quilting friends on another case. I recommend reading them in order, but each could stand alone. I think theyÃ¢ÂÂre the best Amish mysteries IÃ¢ÂÂve read.
