Book Review: Murder Simply Brewed

Murder Simply Brewed
Vanetta Chapman

After the sudden death of Amish Artisan Village coffee shop manager, Ethan, two unlikely forces come together to investigate. While the death has been ruled a natural death, Amber Wright and Hannah Troyer suspect that it’s more than that. Amber, manager of the Amish Artisan Village, hires Hannah to take over Ethan’s job as coffee shop manager. As the days go by, Amber and Hannah start to see signs that point to Ethan’s death being a murder and begin some investigating of their own. What they find is surprising and even suggests that Ethan may have suspected what was coming his way. When they enlist the help of their friends Tate and Jesse, they begin to find the answers they were seeking. That might not be all they find though, after spending large amounts of time with Tate and Jesse, they just might find some feelings they didn’t know they had buried deep down inside.

I’ve read Amish mysteries and regular mysteries, but this is the first I’ve read that combines the Amish and Englischer worlds in a mystery novel. It was interesting because it didn’t read like a traditional Amish fiction novel, nor did it read quite like a traditional mystery – it was an amazing blend of both. This book did a good job of keeping me guessing about what would happen next, but I guess that’s easy to do when working with some of the crazy characters introduced in the story. I really enjoyed reading this book, it’s another great story by Vanetta Chapman.
