Happy December! How are your holiday plans going? I hope this day finds you with your shopping nearly done, your friends and family close, and your heart glad with the Good News of the birth of our Lord.
Murder Tightly Knit is now available! This is a cozy mystery set in the town of Middlebury, Indiana. There’s a murder, and a mystery, and a sleuth who sometimes makes the wrong decisions and finds herself in dire situations. But there’s also faith, community and always God’s grace. You can read more about Murder Tightly Knit here, where you’ll find a complete description as well as links to order the book. There are also SEVERAL ebook specials going on this month. The best place to find those is at Amazon or BN. In the meantime, I thought I’d share a few of the early reviews for Murder Tightly Knit:
“This novel has just the right amount of suspense; it keeps readers engaged in the story with just the right amount of pacing. This is a fun read for both mystery and Amish fiction readers.” ~Romantic Times
“MURDER TIGHTLY KNIT is a masterfully crafted tale of suspense and romance.” ~Fresh Fiction
In this second installment of Chapman’s cozy series (after Murder Simply Brewed), the Carol Award-winning author adeptly fleshes out her characters and weaves in facts about the Amish faith without overwhelming the narrative. Readers of inspirational fiction and fans of Beverly Lewis will delight in this gentle mystery.” ~Library Journal
Now doesn’t that sound like a fun read for a cold December night? Thank you for stopping by my webpage. May your December be filled with joy, peace, and the grace of our Lord.
Amish, Mystery and Suspense Novels
Have you heard my good news? Murder Tightly Knit is now available in stores and on-line. You should be able to find it where ever books are sold.
So how many of you have perfect family visiting for the holidays? Yeah. I know. Somewhere someone is thinking the same thing about me. Family is precious, and the holidays is a very special time to visit with one another. But families are not perfect.
I’ve always loved the story of the prodigal son (Luke, chapter 15 if you want to re-read it). I love how it talks about real people with real problems. I love how the father waits for the son, then runs toward him when he sees him in the distance. I adore the way the father wraps him in a hug and puts a robe around his shoulders and a ring on his finger. I love how the father longs to celebrate with others–because his son who was lost is found.
If you read Murder Tightly Knit closely, you’ll find the story of the prodigal son. I think this parable Jesus told is one that a lot of us can relate to, and I wanted to include it in my story of the Amish in Middlebury, Indiana. I wanted to try and describe the love and relief of the parents, the frustration of the other brother, and the repentance of the son.
Murder Tightly Knit is my gift to you this holiday season. I hope that within its pages, you will once again glimpse the grace and love of our Savior.
