DonnasBookshelfTennesseeAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5I had no idea I would enjoy the story as much as I did!September 16, 2014DonnasBookshelfTennesseeAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When I began reading this story, I had no idea I would enjoy it as much as I did and although Ive been reading mysteries most of my life, I was caught off guard more than once and I went through the entire book not knowing who the murderer was (what a relief; thats actually a good thing).
I loved getting to know Callie, Deborah, Esther and Melinda, as well as the others in the story. The interaction between Callie (an Englischer) and her Amish friends is highly entertaining. Theres enough controversy to keep the story hopping!
Callie soon gets herself arrested or almost!
If I were Callie, I would never have the nerve to do some of the things she does yet it is all very believable. Getting involved in the lives of her friends is just what she needs.
Most series are written so that you can pick up any of the books and catch up easily with whats happened before. You can probably do this with the Shipshewana Amish Mystery series, but you will miss so much if you do. Get all three books in the series and begin at book one Falling to Pieces. Youll be so glad you did.

lilakaserCoshocton, OhioAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5March 16, 2012lilakaserCoshocton, OhioAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5This is the first book I have read by this author. For me, it was kind of slow but as kept reading it got better as the book went on. It is about a niece of a woman who own a quilt shop in Indiana in Amish country. T.he aunt dies and she comes to close the shop. A group of Amish women comes to her and ask her to put their quilts on Ebay. Some people don't like the idea especially the towns newspaper editor. This book is sort of different for an Amish book. It has suspense and romance and friendships between two people who are entirely different from each other. I recommend this book highly.
