I was poking around Goodreads and upcoming events and saw that author Vannetta Chapman would be in my area this Saturday signing copies of her newest book A Perfect Square.  This is book two to follow Falling to Pieces.  This book series is set in Amish country and a quilt shop that a young woman inherits from her aunt.  I’ve read Amish stories before but I think this is the first series that has included a murder.  No wait, I take that back. There is also a fun series by Tamar Myers that involves the Pennsylvania-Dutch and involves cooking (yum!)

Anyway, the teaser for today is from Falling to Pieces.


When two women—one Amish, one English—each with different motives, join forces to organize a successful on-line quilt auction, neither expects nor wants a friendship. As different as night and day, Deborah and Callie are uneasy partners who simply want to make the best of a temporary situation. But a murder, a surprising prime suspect, a stubborn detective, and the town’s reaction throw the two women together, and they form an unlikely alliance to solve a mystery and catch a killer.


from page 132:

“Of course if Harper is detained on a more permanent basis, Mrs. Yoder would be able to return during regular visiting hours and see her.”

“That’s not the outcome we’re working toward, Officer.”
