Murder Handcrafted(Amish Quilt Shop Mystery #5) by Isabella Alan(review by Cathy)

Murder Handcrafted

About the book:

Spring has arrived in Holmes County and Angie couldn’t be happier. She’s got great friends, a thriving business, and is in the perfect relationship with Sheriff James Mitchell.

The only thing raining on her parade is her mother drafting her into a massive home renovation project—and using their sudden mother/daughter bonding time to comment on Angie’s ticking biological clock.

The house’s repairs and upgrades between the Amish craftsmen and their Englisch counterparts are proceeding well until a tremendous shock comes to the workers when the electrician is found dead on site. With the sheriff suspecting foul play, it falls to Angie to root a killer out of the woodwork.

My thoughts:

Isabella Alan  has a wonderful and unique writing style that I  find so enjoyable and makes her one  of my favorite authors.

She creates characters that I love. Not only in this book but throughout the entire Amish Quilt Shop Mystery series.  Angie Braddock and Sheriff James Mitchell have been two of my favorites in the town of Rolling Brook, Ohio.

Angie and her sleuthing pose a bit of a challenge for her boyfriend, Sheriff Mitchell. Of course that never stops her!   Especially, not when there’s been a murder on her parent’s property.  Definitely not when the main suspect is her Amish friend, Jonah!

The appearance of Petunia the goat always signals potential problems and several laugh out loud moments. She’s harmless, but she’s a hungry little thing that wreaks havoc wherever she goes.

It’s always fun to catch up with characters that seem like old friends. No matter if they’re at Angie’s Stitch in Time Quilt shop, Miller’s Amish Bakery or any of the other quaint shops in town where you’ll encounter lots of love and laughter.  Not to mention Oliver, the bulldog and Dodger the cat.

This is Cozy Mystery at its finest. I was very surprised when it was revealed who committed the crime!

As an added bonus at the end of this book, you’ll find directions to make a Quilted Tulip Potholder. Happy reading and happy quilting!

Don’t forget to check out the sneak peak of Prose and Cons, A Magical Bookshop Mystery written by Amanda Flower/AKA Isabella Allen.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
