A Plain Disappearance ~ Review

A Plain Disappearance
An Appleseed Creek Mystery
By Amanda Flower

In the Plain world of Appleseed Creek it is Christmas time and murder has marked the season when Chloe Humphrey and Timothy Troyer discover the body of a teenage Amish girl buried in the snow near an abandoned barn.  Talk about a memorable first date.

But when it is determined that Katie Lambright was murdered Chloe is tasked with the task of figuring out whether or not any of her new Amish acquaintances had anything to do with the murder.  But the Amish don't totally trust Chloe and her Englischer ways nor her knack for helping the police - unofficially of course.

In A Plain Disappearance Chloe is spending her first Christmas with Becky and Timothy and Becky is excited to spend her first non-Amish Christmas embracing a true Englischer Christmas with all the trimmings.  And there is a special surprise for Chloe that will make her Christmas complete.

With a full cast of possible suspects Chloe has her work cut out for her.  But can she sort through the suspects or will she be the next victim?  A Plain Disappearance is full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing as to who the guilty party is and believe me there are several who look pretty likely.

A Plain Disappearance is the third book in this series but it can stand alone if you haven't read the first two but don't deny yourself the enjoyment of the entire series as Chloe solves mysteries and makes a place for herself in Appleseed Creek.

I was provided a copy of this book through Handlebar Marketing in exchange for my fair and honest review.


About The Book:

 

It's Christmastime in Amish Country, and Chloe Humphrey has begun settling into her life in Appleseed Creek excited to see where her new relationship with Timothy Troyer will lead. Unfortunately it leads to murder when the couple discovers the body of Amish teenager Katie Lambright while on their first date. 

Near the scene there is evidence that Timothy's friend and auto mechanic Billy Thorpe is involved with the crime. The police reveal Billy is not really who he said he was and has been living the last decade in Knox County under a stolen alias. Now, Chloe and Timothy must find Billy, bring him to justice, or prove his innocence.
