Product Description

When the coffee shop manager is murdered in Middlebury's Amish Artisan Village, two women from different walks of life must join together to solve the mystery. Amber Wright is optimistic about the growing profit from her collection of Amish shops; until she receives a call that Ethan Gray is dead. Hurrying over to A Simple Blend, she finds a solitary hole in the front window and the store manager lying next to the espresso machine, dead from an apparent heart attack. All the money is still in his register. When Amber hires a young Amish woman, Hannah Troyer, to take over the shop's duties, the two women become fast friends, and amateur sleuths.

Publisher's Description

When the coffee shop manager is murdered in Middlebury’s Amish Artisan Village, two women from different walks of life must join together to solve the mystery.

Spring has arrived in Middlebury, Indiana, and Amber Wright is optimistic about the growing profit from her collection of Amish shops—until she receives a call that Ethan Gray is dead. Hurrying over to A Simple Blend, she finds a solitary hole in the front window and the store manager lying next to the espresso machine, dead from an apparent heart attack. All the money is still in his register.

When Amber hires a young Amish woman, Hannah Troyer, to take over the shop’s duties, the two women become fast friends—as well as amateur sleuths. The police believe Gray’s death is a by-product of vandalism, but Amber and Hannah aren't convinced.

Clues that don't add up, a neighbor who is pulled into the midst of the investigation, a town with secrets to hide, and a blossoming romance—all will combine to push Amber and Hannah into unfamiliar roles in order to reveal answers to the mysteries around them.

"Chapman's latest is a mix of mystery and romance with vivid characters, a realistic setting and themes of loss, trust and love." — Romantic Times, four-star review

Editorial Reviews

“Chapman’s latest is a mix of mystery and romance with vivid characters, a realistic setting and themes of loss, trust and love. The puzzle pieces are revealed slowly so readers can piece the clues together themselves up until the shocking conclusion. A glossary and discussion questions are included.”
'Vannetta Chapman keeps the action suspenseful, and the who-done-it mostly unpredictable as her Amish and English characters work together to solve the mystery. Out of even such dreadful circumstances come moments of grace: between Amber and her Amish employee Hannah and between Amber and Tate, who had each given up on love.”

    I have been reading reviews on these books since they started coming out last year and have been eager to read them. I finally broke down and bought this book and I'm so glad I did! It was certainly worth the money. This was my first book by Vannetta Chapman, so aside from the reviews I'd read, I didn't know what to expect. While this wasn't a fast paced, action packed novel, I didn't expect it to be. It moved along at just the right speed for the subject.

    The characters were well written and developed. I could easily relate to their feelings and emotions throughout the story. Putting the pieces of the puzzle together with them was exciting. I enjoyed reading about Hannah and Jesse. Hannah's sweet innocence and adolescent confusion made for an interesting character. Amber is a great manager. She is kind, compassionate, organized, and caring. Her relationship with Tate was swift and sweet. I didn't like Tate at the beginning of the story, but quickly warmed up to him as his character developed.

    The message of the story is about learning to be comfortable in the situations we find ourselves in. Life isn't always easy. Sometimes we stop and question why God put us here. In the words of Hannah's Mamm, "Sometimes Gotte (God) has a way of putting us in situations where we're uncomfortable." He does it for our own good and growth.

    Overall, this was an exciting story and I look forward to reading more in the Amish Village Mystery Series.

    Vannetta Chapman in her new book, Murder Simply Brewed Book One in the Amish Village Mystery series published by Zondervan introduces us to Amber Wright and Hannah Troyer.

    From the back cover: When the coffee shop manager is murdered in Middleburys Amish Artisan Village, two women from different walks of life must join together to solve the mystery.

    Spring has arrived in Middlebury, Indiana, and Amber Wright is optimistic about the growing profit from her collection of Amish shopsuntil she receives a call that Ethan Gray is dead. Hurrying over to A Simple Blend, she finds a solitary hole in the front window and the store manager lying next to the espresso machine, dead from an apparent heart attack. All the money is still in his register.

    When Amber hires a young Amish woman, Hannah Troyer, to take over the shops duties, the two women become fast friendsas well as amateur sleuths. The police believe Grays death is a by-product of vandalism, but Amber and Hannah arent convinced.

    Clues that dont add up, a neighbor who is pulled into the midst of the investigation, a town with secrets to hide, and a blossoming romanceall will combine to push Amber and Hannah into unfamiliar roles in order to reveal answers to the mysteries around them.

    Now this is what a murder mystery is all about. First we have Amber Wright, an English woman, who has some Amish Village shops one of which is A Simple Blend, a coffee shop. Then we have Hannah Troyer, who is Amish, that Amber hired to take over A Simply Blend after the death of Ethan. Nobody liked Ethan and when these two women set out to find his murderer they have a huge mystery with a large set of suspects with very little to go on. This is going to keep you flipping pages as you get involved with mystery hunters and a vandal. Ms. Chapman has done an outstanding job in giving us a first class mystery. Amber and Hannah are really great characters that we fall in love with and feel as though they are friends that we do not want to leave when the book is finished. The good news is Ms. Chapman has written a second book in this series so we can reunite with them soon.

    This review was written for Murder Simply Brewed - eBook.
    Vannetta did a good job on this mystery and I like that she has the English and Amish working together. I enjoy a mystery with sleuthing by amateurs, it seems they can dig up better clues than the authorities and I really enjoy it when they prove the experienced authorities wrong. This is the first in the series, I'm already reading the second, "Murder Tightly Knit" and will be watching for the third, "Murder Freshly Baked" to come out in June of 2015. This is looking like it will be a good series for Amish or mystery/cozy mystery book lovers.

    I received this as an e-book from Net Galley with an agreement to give an honest review. The review above is my honest opinion of this book.

    Things are stirring in the Amish Artisan Village in Middlebury, Indiana, and not just in the coffee shop, although its proprietor turns up dead. Amber Wright, the Villages manager, and Hannah Troyer, an Amish employee, join forces to try to discover just how and why Ethan Gray died and what it means to the Village. This book offers a combination of cozy mystery and Amish story, with some romance for added depth and tension. Vanetta Chapmans books delight and entertain while making readers think and process the various emotions and situations the characters face. Faith always plays a significant role as we see the flawed characters learn and grow. Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and enjoy this neighborly adventure.

    MURDER SIMPLY BREWED
    August 31, 2014
    Rats
    MURDER SIMPLY BREWED by Vannetta Chapman, is definitely a 5 star novel. I absolutely loved everything about this story and was hooked after reading the very first page. Vannetta's description of the Middlebury, Indiana's Amish Artisian Village was so real that it brought this story to life and made you feel like you were right there visiting and enjoying a steaming cup of simply brewed kaffi.

    This is a heartwarming whodunit with both Amish and English characters, working together to solve the mystery of a murder of one of the employees of the Village. MSB is a strong, well written, emotional, inspiring and educational novel as Vannetta has so brilliantly included some teachings of the Amish ways. I absolutely fell in love with all the interesting and colorful characters and the story line moves along so smoothly, it keeps you wanting to find out what happens next instead of laying the book down!

    I enjoy a good ending and I guarantee you will not be disappointed with this one! I loved this book and I highly recommend it to all Amish and English loving readers!

    You did an awesome job, Vannetta, and I look forward to reading more of your books.

    I received this book from the Author after winning the giveaway at Goodreads. All thoughts expressed are my own and no monetary compensation was received.
