    Vannetta, you have done it again! You've kept me awake and on the edge of my seat. The bishop is once again in the thick of things and the things are not good. There is murder again. The Amish community is close knit and sticks by those in their faith and community.

    The bishop has a special gift for drawing the things he remembers. Does the bishop have some insight into the latest murder among the books in this series?

    This is one of the best series that Vannetta Chapman has written and I highly recommend it to readers.

    I am rating this book 5 ***** stars.

    I received a copy of this book from netgalley and Harvest House Publishing in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.

    Who the Bishop Knows by Vannetta Chapman is the third and final installment of The Amish Bishop Series. The final installment; that word sounds, well, so final. Im not sure Im quite ready to leave the Amish community of Monte Vista, Colorado. After all it was in Monte Vista we first met the delightful, but somewhat serious Bishop Lapp who mysteriously was able to draw, in exquisite detail, the things his mind saw. No, he does not have a photographic memory; it is different, something that began when he was yet a boy, after being hit in the head by a baseball bat. Unfortunately, in the small Amish community of his childhood, and even his parents, many were a bit frightened by this new gift, leaving his family with the decision of forbidding young Henry Lapp using the gift.

    Fast forward, Henry Lapp an older (and single) bishop in Monte Vista; while this community was not the one the bishop grew up in, he continued to squelch this ability. He is well-loved, respected bishop who has a heart full of compassion for those who find themselves hurting or in trouble. It is this compassionate heart that leads Bishop Lapp to draw again in What the Bishop Saw when an innocent person is arrested for arson and murder. Again, Bishop Lapp is unable to resist the urging of God to bring out the paper and pencils in When the Bishop Needs an Alibi, when he himself is in the direct vision of law enforcement investigators when a young woman is found dead in a nearby Wildlife Refuge. Oh, and I dare not forget Emma; Emma and Henry had been friends for some time but something new is growing between them; could it be love?

    I eagerly began reading Who the Bishop Knows for I just had to know what kind of trouble was going to find Bishop Henry Lapp this time. The states oldest rodeo is held yearly in Monte Vista. (I love a good rodeo; you?). This year someone is going to die at the rodeo; not by injury from the rodeo itself, but someone will die. How? A skilled marksman with a high-powered rifle shoots rodeo performer Jeremiah Schwartz, who, though raised Amish, had not yet joined the community as a member. His death hits the Amish community especially hard.

    As the investigation begins, Henry finds himself at a bit of a loss; he was at the concession stand buying refreshments when the shooting occurred. He isnt able to draw what happened like he had previously. Bishop Lapp begins by providing support to his members; with his astute understanding of people and human nature, things begin to capture his attention. And his special gift comes into play after all.

    Who would kill Jeremiah and why? He certainly isnt rich; this is an amateur rodeo after all. Nor is any one in at risk of losing their standings on the rodeo circuit. What is going on? Read Who the Bishop knows to find out. It isnt who or what you might think it to be. And just who does Bishop Henry Lapp know?

    Book 3 of The Amish Bishop Mystery series is as captivating as its predecessors! Ms. Chapman has created another suspense filled mystery involving Bishop Henry and his Amish friends and family. This is an emotional drama of murder, kidnapping, and threats that turn Henry's life into chaos once again.

    I loved this segment of the series. Love is in the air, family ties are strong and caring, and life in the Amish community is realistic and charming. A fast paced mystery kept me on my toes as I enjoyed the beautiful scenic depictions and developing relationships throughout this wonderful book! Be sure to add this one to your collection!

    Who the Bishop Knows

    By Vannetta Chapman

    This is the third and final book in the Amish Bishop Mysteries by Vannetta Chapman. I am very sorry to see this series come to a close. I will miss Henry and the people of Monte Vista, I have come to think of them as community members that I know and love.

    This book begins with the murder of an Amish young adult and continues as Bishop Henry and friends are once more pulled into the investigation. The list of suspects includes both Englisch and Amish. The culminating action near the end of the book is bound to raise your blood pressure as the book comes to a close.

    Chapman knows how to write a great mystery. She hooks you in immediately and keeps you involved in the plot as it evolves. Her characters exhibit real human qualities, both virtues and vices. She also knows how to build a break in the action with a little bit of comic relief before the tension starts to flow again. And above all, Biblical scripture is quoted throughout the text reminding us who is really in control.

    Kudos to Vannetta Chapman for another outstanding series! I am looking forward to many more to come!

    This review was written for Who the Bishop Knows #3.
    The Amish Bishop Mysteries have been an enjoyable Amish/Cozy mystery series. Years ago I used to read cozy mysteries and then one day I just stopped. I'm not even sure why. This series reawakened the interest that I'd had in cozy mysteries years ago.

    Bishop Henry makes this entire series. The unique talent that allows him to draw anything with perfect photographic memory makes him feel like he's cursed. Over the course of this series, we see Henry accept his talent as a gift from God. His story is one of love and acceptance.

    One of my favorite things about this series is the sweet love story between Henry and Emma. It is rare to find any story (Amish or otherwise) where a man and woman in their 60-70's fall in love. It's just not done. Which is a shame! I appreciate that the author shows that Henry and Emma are still valid members of their home and community.

    Overall, this book flowed at a nice, easy pace. I had suspicions of who had committed the crime and a certain incident sealed their guilt in my mind. Solving the crime didn't ruin the story for me as the author managed to keep an air of mystery on how the crime was committed.

    My only real complaint is that there is one character that has no resolution. I won't say who this character is as it would subtract one of the suspects. I would have liked to have known what happened to him/her after the mystery was resolved though as a secondary character, it doesn't detract from the star rating for me.

    Though the series wraps up nicely, I'm sad to say goodbye to these characters. I'm not sure if I'm ready for the series to be over. Still, I look forward to future cozy mysteries by this author in the future.

    This book was provided to me by the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. All opinions are my own.
