“Plain Disappearance” An Appleseed Creek Mystery, by Amanda Flower, book review.
Christmas is in the air here in Appleseed Creek. Chloe and Timothy are out for a sleigh ride for a little alone time when they stumble upon a murder scene. Neighbor Katie, an Amish teenager, had been murdered and left at the old Grundy barn. Chloe and Timothy call the local law enforcement and the search for the murderer begins.
So begins the 3rd book in the Appleseed Creek Mystery series. While I did not read the first 2 books, it was easy to jump right in and enjoy this book. Timothy and his sister, Becky, have left the Amish faith to pursue opportunities in the English world. But with the blessing of the bishop, they are able to associate with their family and not endure the shunning that usually comes from leaving the Amish.: Timothy is in construction work while Becky is working at a local Amish restaurant while studying for the GED and planning her further education. Chloe recently moved to the area as the local college IT supervisor.
The book is full of struggles: Amish and English, search for murderer, and good vs evil. In all, Chloe is able to lead others to God and exercise their faith.
Interesting book to read, especially appropriate for Christmas time. Would make a great Christmas gift for your favorite fiction lover.
