Shipshewana Amish Mystery Series, VC Book Spotlight
The first book in this series was Falling to Pieces, and while I was writing it I visited Shipshe for the first time. The town is a real mix of Amish and Englisch who live there. In a lot of ways, this changed the way I thought about the Amish because my first experience was of a community working well together.
The second book in the series is A Perfect Square. Funny story–I wrote this during the last year that I was a high school/college teacher. I teased my students about it, because the story opens with Deborah finding a teenage girl’s body in a pond. My kids thought that was a hoot.
Book three is Material Witness, and it’s really the story of Aaron, a special needs child. As the parent of a handicapped child, I’m fascinated with the way Amish deal with these situations.
These books are all available individually in print, and if you’re an ebook reader you can purchase them in a bundle now for only $10.99. I’m hoping B&N will also carry this bundled set. When they do, I will post the link on my webpage.
