Falling to Pieces by Vannetta Chapman Book Review
Falling to Pieces (A Shipshewana Amish Mystery)
I read a lot of Amish stories. This one is really like no other. It is a mystery with murder, grief, anger, and different motives that could get everyone involved in trouble.
The main characters were very likable and each had their own story. I liked the way the author combined the "English" way with the "Amish" way. It was nice to see the way the combined worlds really work in a small town.
This is the first book in the series - I wouldn't mind reading more of the stories in the future. It was a book that truly kept my attention and had me captivated.
I didn't like the cartoonish cover. I felt like it took away from the story. I know you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover and in this case it is true.
Also, this is not a family friendly book - it had adult issues that wouldn't be acceptable for the young at heart.
All in all - I truly liked the book and would recommend it for a rainy day!
Blessings to you! You are loved!
