Material Witness, Shipshewana Amish Mystery Series #3
It will surprise you!
There isnÃ¢ÂÂt much I can say about Material WitnessÃ¢ÂÂ¦ itÃ¢ÂÂs a wonderful read, and I was completely caught off guard a few times.
But I want to be careful to not give away any secrets, so although this might be the best of all three books in the series, it will possibly be the shortest reviewÃ¢ÂÂ¦
only because itÃ¢ÂÂs Ã¢ÂÂjust so darn goodÃ¢ÂÂ.
I encourage you to take the time to read this bookÃ¢ÂÂ¦ all three booksÃ¢ÂÂ¦ the writing is excellent, with secrets and intrigueÃ¢ÂÂ¦ and romance.
Let me just say that if I had to leave behind most of my book collection, those written by Vannetta Chapman would be staying with me Ã¢ÂÂ somehow IÃ¢ÂÂd find a way!

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!
