Product Description

When two women-one Amish, one English-each with different motives, join forces to organize a successful on-line quilt auction, neither expects nor wants a friendship. As different as night and day, Deborah and Callie are uneasy partners who simply want to make the best of a temporary situation. But a murder, a surprising prime suspect, a stubborn detective, and the town's reaction throw the two women together, and they form an unlikely alliance to solve a mystery and catch a killer.

Publisher's Description

Award-winning author Vannetta Chapman’s Shipshewana Amish Mystery series now available in one volume!

Falling to Pieces

In the Amish community of Shipshewana, two women—one Amish, one English—reluctantly join forces for a short-term business venture. Neither is looking for friendship, but when the town's newspaper editor is murdered, and an unexpected prime suspect is identified, the women form an unlikely alliance to solve the mystery.

A Perfect Square

Amish-English sleuthing duo Deborah Yoder and Callie Harper set out to solve a murder. But more than an innocent man’s future is at stake. In book two of the Shipshewana Amish Mystery series, God’s grace touches the long-lost past as well as lives shaken by current tragedy.

Material Witness

The Fall Crafters Fair has barely begun in Shipshewana when murder strikes the small town once again—this time on the property of Daisy's Quilt Shop. It will take all of the sleuthing skills Deborah Yoder and Callie Harper possess to catch the perpetrator. But the stakes are higher than ever before, since the material witness is their best friend's child. Everyone will have to go on a journey of faith deep into the heart of God’s grace.

Publisher's Weekly

A quilting shop is the setting for this mystery with an Amish woman as amateur detective. Deborah Yoder solves a series of crimes that have embroiled her non-Amish friend, Callie. Unfortunately, Chapman (A Simple Amish Christmas) strains credulity with plot and characters: the villains lack subtlety; a county coroner has usurped the duties of police and district attorney; journalists blithely engage in behavior that would get real ones fired, sued, or boycotted. Although this novel is published by an evangelical Christian publisher, law-abiding characters cheerfully engage in unethical practices, such as a cop seeking to date a murder suspect. Yoder is generally well drawn, but there’s a moral disconnect when she devises a plan to have a newspaper print lies in order to catch the bad guy. Lying is a far more serious offense for the Amish than the novel’s chosen problem of doing business over the Internet. The Amish also don’t use weapons to attack others, even if the weapons are quilting implements. This is the first book of a planned trilogy that could be vastly improved with better research. (Oct.)

    The Shipshewana Amish Mystery Collection ( A Shipshewana Amish Mystery )

    By: Vannetta Chapman

    This is a collection of three books and I loved all three.

    Falling To Pieces ( Shipshewana Amish Mystery #1 )

    By: Vannetta Chapman

    I really enjoyed Falling to Pieces and before I started reading it , I was thinking Amish, English, and cozy mystery all together!! Well let me tell you this is not your regular Amish book. I think Ms Chapman has did an excellent job of weaving her characters into a story about Amish and English working together. We have Callie Harper who inherited her aunt's Quilt store, Daisy's Quilt Shop, and then Deborah who is Amish and needs to sell her quilts. These two becomes good friends .This cozy mystery , Amish, and an English has it's twists and turns including a dead body. You might say a dead body in Shipshewana, IN. ? This story will make you laugh and keep you guessing till the end. Now I just have to read Book #2

    A Perfect Square ) A Shipshewana Amish Mystery Book 2)

    By: Vannetta Chapman

    This is the second book, A Perfect Square, in this series and it was really good. Vannetta Chapman has did it again. She has weaved a story of mystery and love that when you start reading you do not want to put it down. If you read book one Falling To Pieces you will again meet up with the same characters. The story starts off really fast and it grabs you till the end. In Shipshewana , Indiana a dead girl was found floating in a local pond. Reuben Fisher is accused and taken into custody for the girls death. Reuben and Tobias are cousins and living on the property where the girl was found. No one believes that Reuben could do such a thing, but he remains silence and will not say anything. Tobias and Deborah is to get married. What will happen to them now, it is only two weeks till their wedding. We have Callie the non Amish and her dog Max, who owns Daisy's Quilt Shop and she is friends with Deborah, Esther, and Melinda who are Amish. Now if you have read book one how Callie and Deborah takes things into their hands and try to solve the mystery. They are determined to find out about the dead girl found floating in the pond. Deborah does not believe Reuben could have did anything to the girl and she is going to find out what happened to her. We have two mysteries in our story to solve. Iva Bontrager hunts and finds Callie. He wants her to find his long lost daughter that has been missing since 1965 when Palm Sunday tornadoes went through. Now no one remembers him having a daughter . Did he have a daughter or is it in his mind? If he had a daughter would his son not remember her? I was not disappointed in A Perfect Square and I an looking forward to reading book three Material Witness. I have it and will start it next.

    Material Witness ( A Shipshewana Amish Mystery Book #3)

    By: Vannetta Chapman

    I have read all three of these books in Shipshewana Amish Mystery Series and I think that Vannetta Chapman really did an awesome job. This story starts out with action and it don't let up till the end. The name "Material Witness" really fits this book good. This one is my favorite of the three. At the opening of the Fall Crafter's Fair a woman is killed right outside of Daisy's Quilt Shop. This really upsets Callie Harper, the owner. She can't believe this is happening again. Someone has been killed and she is right in the middle of it. This time there is an eye witness to the killing.There is Shane Black the office who is heading the killing and he does not want Callie hurt. He has feeling for Callie. We have the non Amish Callie, and the Amish ladies Deborah, Melinda, and Esther. These ladies are so close that they feel like sisters. Yes they will have to help and find who the killer is before the killer goes after one of them. We also have another mystery about some quilts that these ladies just has to find out the mystery about them. I don't want to leave out the children and Max in this story. They play a big part in this story. I laughed one minute and on the edge of my seat the next minute. If you love a good clean mystery and light romance, you will love "Material Witness." Just be prepared when you start reading , you will not want to put it down. This last book has really turned out good. I would hope there would be another one .

    I was given a copy of this book by the author for my honest review and I have given it.

    This is a fun whodunit mystery taking place in the Amish town of Shipshewana. After Callie's aunt passes, she arrives from Texas with the intent of selling her aunt's quilt shop. After a little coaxing the Amish ladies that provided quilts for the shop, convince her to re-open the now forlorn looking shop. Deborah's family comes to help Callie restore the shop and clean the grounds.

    Deborah, one of the Amish women quilters and Callie work together to sell some of the quilts on EBay. The editor of the local newspaper finds this as a good story to sell a few more of his papers and embellishes the story with incorrect information which gives Callie a bad start in her new business.

    Callie becomes friends with the Amish women and gains their trust.

    The editor is found dead in his office and Callie finds him and somehow becomes entangled legally with this apparent crime. More incidents happen in town and the police are looking to capture the person responsible. Callie and Deborah play detectives, plotting together to figure out how to find the person responsible for the crimes and find themselves in a scary situation.

    The story is one of trust and friendship among women of different backgrounds and how they can bond together and work together even though they have many differences. I enjoyed the story very much and it was a fun read

    Falling To Pieces by Vannetta Chapman, A Shipshewana Amish Mystery Series, book 1*****

    by Vannetta Chapman

    Callie Harper is in Shipshewana staying in her Aunt Daisy's apartment above the Daisy's Quilt Shop her aunt owned and loved. Callie had not seen her aunt in years but when she unexpectedly dies Callie finds she has inherited the shop. Since she doesn't know anything about running a quilt shop, she plans to sell it as quickly as possible and return to Texas. She also inherited Max, Aunt Daisy's Labrador. When Callie takes Max out to do his "morning business", she sees an Amish women getting out of a buggy parked by the shop. The woman approaches Callie with her arms full of beautiful quilts and introduces herself. She learns that Deborah Yoder was not only a friend of her aunt's but brought Amish quilts for her to sell. Callie informs Deborah that she plans to sell the shop. Callie soon learns she may sell the quilt shop quicker if she would re-open it. With Deborah and her family's help, along with Melinda and Esther, two Amish women who sew with Deborah, the shop is soon clean, orderly and ready to open again.

    One day Deborah comes into the shop and shows Callie an article in the Shipshewana Gazette about Daisy's Quilt Shop's new owner, Callie Harper. The article was written by the editor, Mr. Steakhorn and was anything but truthful—"New Shop Owner Robs Amish". Barely containing her anger she storms out to see the editor. But Mr. Steakhorn has left for the day so Callie must wait til the next day to confront him and demand a retraction to the article. She doesn't know that it is Mr. Steakhorn's policy to never retract an article. Her first meeting with him does not go well. Later while waiting for her usual to-go order at the deli she hears Mr. Steakhorn's name called for his order. They end up arguing and Callie says he will regret making her an enemy. That same night Mr. Steakhorn is found dead in his office by—Callie. When it is determined that it was not a heart attack but murder, Callie is top on the list of suspects.

    After the murder of Mr. Steakhorn someone looks through his office apparently looking for something. Other shops are broken into and searched, even injuring the deli's owner. Callie's shop is broken into and Max is shot. Callie and her new Amish friends decide to find who is responsible for the murder and break-ins. They enlist the help of the new Gazette owner, Mr. Trent McCallister and some of the police officers offer to assist too. They come up with a plan to trap the burglaries/murderer.

    I love the way Vannetta weaves a story stitching the threads of the characters lives together to make a lovely quilt of friendship along with: hope, forgiveness, family, love and faith. Added to this is a mystery that keeps you guessing to the end. I am looking forward to reading book 2 in the series:

    Perfect Square.
