Knitty Teacher5 Stars Out Of 5My Kind of Mystery!August 30, 2020Knitty TeacherQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Wow...once again, Wanda has opened up new doors in Amish fiction with the 2nd book in her new mystery series! As I stated in my review of the 1st book in the series - I haven't read a mystery in years because although I used to enjoy them, it seems that genre has gotten so scary they just don't appeal to me. Wanda's mystery books are definitely different. They are mysteries, but they're not creepy or scary. And, just like in the 1st book, this book doesn't have the same ultra-cheery mood like many Amish stories - it's more somber. Grief lingers longer and stronger for Sylvia in this story, following circumstances that leaves the family dealing with heartache, struggle, and strife. As the family slowly picks up the pieces and attempts to regain some normalcy in life, Sylvia has to navigate her own path through her grief, which is very relatable. She contemplates opening her heart again, which reveals slivers of hope and joy in her life. Readers will revisit several family members and neighbors in the story, getting a little bit more insight into each of their lives and perspectives. Each one is unique in his or her own way, and although we learn a lot about each one, we still don't learn everything...which keeps the story interesting and makes me very excited for book #3 to be released in Spring 2021! This book was provided to me by Barbour Publishing. I was not required to leave a positive (or any) review. Opinions and ideas expressed in this review are my own.

BookloverGoldendale WAAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Dealing with Great LossAugust 9, 2020BookloverGoldendale WAAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book continues on with the King family as they deal with their tremendous loss. Sylvia seems to be having the most
difficulty moving forward after the tragic loss of her husband, father and brother. Each of the characters deals with their
grieving process differently.
Sylvia begins to move forward on the road to recovery when she meets a fellow birdwatcher Dennis Weaver. Their friendship
grows quickly too quickly for her mother Belinda, Belinda seems to be trying to keep a tight hold on her children's lives after the loss of her
husband, son and son in law.
Since Sylvia lives with her mother and sister in Belinda's home this leads to a lot of tension between them. The book keeps
your interest and the characters or so believable you just want to step in and help them get things straightened out.
Great job on the book Wanda can't wait to get book 3 to see who the vandal is that is causing all the trouble at the greenhouse.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing House and was under no obligation to post a review
pam5 Stars Out Of 5The Mockinbird's SongAugust 6, 2020pamQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Mockingbird's Song is the second exceptional book written by Wanda Brunstetter in her Amish Greenhouse Mystery series. The author has such unique writing style that gives her the ability to weave an interesting story each and everytime. Her characters are very well developed and likeable. I have enjoyed getting to know the characters in this series. They definitely keep the storyline moving and interesting.
In this story the author keeps her mystery going and growing more intense. The person responsible definetly steps up his vandalism. By the end of the story the vandalism is devastating. We also get to see how healing comes with time for several of the characters, there is a marriage for one, and the disgruntled neighbor Virginia is starting to take an interest in her Amish neighbors but not for the right reasons. Maude, the older homeless lady, makes several appearances throughout the story and is up to no good. A new character emerges in this story, Dennis Weaver, a young Amish man who trains horses but is also an avid birdwatcher. When Henry and Sylvia stumble upon Dennis by accident of friendship ensues but not everyone is fond of Dennis. Also making several appearances is a Mockingbird. Sylvia is not sure if he is friend or foe. This story is so inspiring for so many reasons. Finding healing, friendship, and even love. Faith is definitely found throughout the entire story.
Although I did receive a complimentary copy of this book to read and review from the author and Barbour Publishing, I was not expected to post a favorable response just an honest one. I have rated this story with five stars for meeting my expectations of a wonderful story that I can highly recommend to others. I am anticipating the third book in this series that is titled The Robin's Greeting set to release on 2021.
Congratulations to Wanda Brunstetter for continuing her series with this inspiring story for her readers enjoyment.
