My thoughts on this book!

Callie is in Shipshewana just long enough to sell the little quilt shop she inherited from her aunt, because she has no desire to reopen the shop. Everything starts to change though when Callie meets some of the Amish people in the community, especially Deborah Yoder. Through Deborah and these other Amish ladies, Callie finds out that her aunt’s shop is not just for tourists, but a place for some of the Amish ladies to get together and work on their quilts. The more she gets to know these ladies and the people of Shipshewana, the less she wants to return to Texas and her life there. But can she successfully make a go of it if she reopens the shop?

And another surprising twist to the story is when the local newspaper editor ends up dead, and Callie is a major suspect, well, she can’t just run off. She needs to do whatever she can to clear her name. Which may be a little bit difficult since Callie is so straight forward and speaks her peace when someone tries to tell things untrue about her, like publishing something in the local newspaper to destroy her reputation. This can get to be very interesting!

For me, this was a wonderful Amish story with a twist of suspense to it. The storyline and the characters just draw you in as we following Callie and her life in Shipshewana. Just when you think you have things figured out, there’s another twist and fingers are pointing to someone else.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and if you like just a good Amish read with a little extra jolt of suspense, then you will love this book as well. So go grab a copy for yourself, read and enjoy it!
