  It’s Christmastime in Amish Country, and Chloe Humphrey has begun settling into her life in Appleseed Creek excited to see where her new relationship with Timothy Troyer will lead. Unfortunately it leads to murder when the couple discovers the body of Amish teenager Katie Lambright while on their first date.

Near the scene there is evidence that Timothy’s friend and auto mechanic Billy Thorpe is involved with the crime. The police reveal Billy is not really who he said he was and has been living the last decade in Knox County under a stolen alias. Now, Chloe and Timothy must find Billy, bring him to justice, or prove his innocence.

My Thoughts:

Another great mystery, these books keep getting better. The characters are well fleshed out, the story moves along nicely, and kept me interested. I also liked that the romance between Chloe and Timothy is progressing, it's believable and they have good chemistry. Her description of the setting makes me want to visit Amish country and learn all that I can about that culture. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment in the series. 

It's a four tea-cupper:
