Publisher's Description

When Angela Braddock enters her quilts in an Amish auction, she never expects one of her neighbors to end up going, going, gone....
                          
Angie is finding her niche as the new owner of her late aunt’s Amish quilt shop, Running Stitch. But as the summer is winding down, so is business. To bolster support for the shop, Angie decides to sell her quilts in the Rolling Brook Amish Auction, including some of her aunt’s most prized works.
 
The quilts promise to be a hit—but the gavel comes down on the lively event when Angie stumbles upon the body of township trustee Wanda Hunt behind a canning shed. The cause of death: a poisoned blueberry fry pie from Rachel Miller’s bakery table. Now Angie’s closest friend is a murder suspect. With Angie taking the lead, she and the other women of her aunt’s quilting circle set out to patch together the clues and stop a killer set on shredding the simple peace of Rolling Brook.
 
Includes Quilting Tips!

    Well, she has gone and done it again. Angela Braddock found another dead body. Poor girl. It’s like a mystery is always knocking at her door. This time around Angela was having a good time at the local Amish auction and bam…she stumbles upon Wanda Hunt who has met an untimely demise. Wanda had just got into a major confrontation with Rachel Miller, who is Angie’s good friend and now she is a goner. And well, she was still holding the blueberry fry pie that she purchased from Rachel. Rachel’s husband has been embroiled in a battle over a land zoning issue with Wanda and things were not going good for him. Possible motive for murder? Could a tainted fry pie be to blame? Was Wanda’s death an accident or something more sinister? And so it begins…

    Sounds funny to say that I laughed throughout a book that’s called Murder, Simply Stitched but I did. There are so many scenes that will make you laugh, smile, and have you hailing Isabella Alan as the Queen of Cozy Mysteries. Her characters are so darn charming and loveable especially the pets. I fell head over heels in love with Oliver, the French bulldog in book one and he is even more adorable in this book. This story has everything we readers enjoy. Mystery, romance, suspense, and a feisty goat. Feisty goat you ask? Yes, Petunia the goat is a real scene stealer and quite the character. I really can’t say enough wonderful things about this book. All I can say for sure is that I know you will fall just as in love with the characters as I did and maybe even solve a mystery along the way.

    I was provided a copy of this book for review purposes.

    Angie's new business venture operating her late aunt's Amish quilt shop has been a success throughout the tourist season. Angie sets up a booth at Rolling Brook Amish Auction in order to sell some of her quilts and a few of her aunt's prized quilts to keep her afloat throughout the looming winter months. The sudden death of township trustee Wanda Hunt is considered a homicide, and Angie's dear Amish friend is accused of poisoning her. Angie and her Amish quilting circle brainstorm to disprove that theory!

    Throughout this tale of mystery and intrigue Angie finds herself in the most bizarre situations, lending a comical element to this Amish mystery. Her "city"dog Oliver takes cover at the sight of a bird, yet is overprotective of her kitten, watching over him like a mother hen. Mischievous twins and a goat named Petunia add to the shenanigans, and provide wacky entertainment throughout the story. Sheriff Mitchell doesn't appreciate Angie's presence at the crime scene or her unsolicited appearances throughout the investigation of Wanda's death, but his gorgeous eyes appear to convey more than irritation. As you might have already gathered, this Amish mystery covers numerous elements that prove to entertain, intrigue, and keep you turning pages to transport you to the next development!

    Isabella Alan pens a story that is filled with adventure, wit and colorful characters that will keep your interest until the last page. "Murder, Simply Brewed" is a delightful blending of all the great characteristics that will keep your interest and curiosity piqued throughout the entire story. Never a dull moment is to be found in this captivating read! The author has written this book in the first person and does a fantastic job of it. I enjoyed this book so much I'll undoubtedly read it again. The author develops a descriptive, fast-paced adventure of activities that are creative and penned in a unique style. I highly recommend that you pick up a copy of this book and settle in for a long evening of entertainment!
