His life as well as that of his dear friend, Emma, will be in danger because of his drawings. This 2nd book in The Amish Bishop Mysteries kept me guessing until the very end. I love reading about the Amish and I truly enjoy a good mystery, and this book is one of my favorites now.
While part of a series, the book can be read as a standalone although it might prove more interesting to read the first book in the series as well.
I am rating this book 5 ***** stars and highly recommend it to readers.

KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A heartwarming cozy filled with humour, faith and intrigue.January 27, 2018KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There is something spectacularly delicious about an Amish Bishop Super Sleuth! And Henry's unique gift makes the mystery unraveling all the more intriguing. The kindly bishop wants nothing more than to shepherd his flock and pursue a certain widow who has caught his eye but his love for bird watching propels him into an all too familiar scenario -- one where he becomes the prime suspect in a murder. It's clearly a setup -- which also suggests that someone in law enforcement must be involved. Things don't look good for Henry, but his friends and community -- both Amish and Englisch rally around the beloved bishop.
A heartwarming cozy filled with humour, faith and intrigue.
ConnieRMEAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Strong clean fictionJanuary 21, 2018ConnieRMEAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Amish Bishop Henry Lapp is an unusual man. His stories as told through Vannetta Chapman's imagination are slightly unusual...great Amish elements, plenty of mystery and suspense, and there's a quality about Chapman's writing that makes her characters so real that you wish they could be your family members, or at least I do.
I appreciate suspense writing that doesn't necessarily have to have all the blood and guts that I used to enjoy reading. I still have those authors that I love, but more and more I am drawn to novels like these that rely on their strong story lines and great character profiles to make the book grab your attention. The third book of the series is out soon, and I'm looking forward to it!
Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5When the Bishop Needs an AlibiDecember 10, 2017Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5WHEN THE BISHOP NEEDS AN ALIBI is the second book in Ms. Chapman's The Amish Bishop Series. The first book is What the Bishop Saw, but the mysteries are not intertwined and it is not necessary to read the first book to understand this one.
Henry Lapp is a dear sweet man and obviously caring about Amish and English alike. He willingly reaches out to others who are hurting and listens to them. Emma loves Henry and tries to help him reach out to others, but as a result is drawn into his mysteries and in this book at least, ended up with her life in danger.
A cozy mystery and one I didn't have figured out until it was revealed. Rare for me.
If you like cozy mysteries or Amish stories, you'll want to read WHEN THE BISHOP NEEDS AN ALIBI.
