Review: A Plain Scandal by Amanda Flower
A Plain Scandal by Amanda Flower
is the second book in the “Appleseed Creek” mystery series. Publisher: B&H
Publishing, February 2013
The people of Appleseed Creek in the heart of Ohio’s
Amish Country are under attack. Soon after the dust has settled on a buggy
accident that turned out to be murder, an unknown assailant begins cutting off
the long hair of Amish women and the beards of Amish men.
New to the area, computer specialist Chloe Humphrey
may not share their customs, but she is certainly alarmed over these crimes
against the Amish and worries how such events will impact her growing number of
friends who are more connected to that way of life.
In this small community, when Chloe discovers the
body of an Amish businessman who was stabbed in the back and whose beard was
cut off, she knows that finding the murderer and restoring peace to Appleseed
Creek is as much her responsibility as anyone else’s.
Whenever I read a story by Amanda
Flower, I know that when I turn that last page, it will leave me with a
heartwarming feeling. This is a great read that quickly became a page turner as
I had to know what happens next. The mystery kept me guessing and every time I
thought I knew who was behind the incidents, the author changed directions with
some twists that were pleasantly surprising. With Chloe leading the way and
surrounded by a great supporting cast in this wonderfully crafted drama, this
is the best book thus far in this delightfully charming series.
