Book Review: Kappy King and the Puppy Kaper (An Amish Mystery) by Amy Lillard

Kappy King and the Puppy Kaper (An Amish Mystery) by [Lillard, Amy]

Kappy King and the Puppy Kaper (An Amish Mystery)


From Amazon:

Content to be unmarried and plain-spoken, Kathryn “Kappy” King is an odd-woman-out in the Amish community of Blue Sky, Pennsylvania. But she’s skilled at making the special kapps local women need to cover their hair. And she might be the only one who can unearth the danger hiding in this peaceful valley . . .

When Kappy's neighbor, Ruth Peachey, turns up dead in her yard, everyone in Blue Sky believes it’s a tragic accident. Until the Englisch police find the gentle dog breeder was deliberately struck down—and arrest her mentally-challenged son, Jimmy, for the crime . . . 

Jimmy’s sister, Edie, returns to Blue Sky clear his name, yet no one will speak to a shunned former Amish woman, much less give her information. Determined to help, Kappy starts digging for the truth among her seemingly-innocent neighbors. But suddenly a series of suspicious “accidents” threatens Edie and the Peachey farm—property Edie is determined to protect for her brother’s future. 

Now, as danger looms large in the small community, Kappy must bait a trap for a killer snapping hard at her heels. And Edie must decide whether to make a home once more in the town she thought she’d left behind . .
.

My Thoughts:  

This delightful book had me flipping the pages to the end. With detailed descriptions of the surroundings and emotions I didn't want to put it down.   I especially loved the mystery especially with a touch of romance. It was perfect!  
  
There were some great characters in Kappy King and the Puppy Kaper but I loved the friendship that happened between Edie and Kappy.   Both of them were on the outside of a great community and of course that really spoke to my heart.  They really cared about others but they were not given much of a chance.  I would have loved to have them both for a friend.


This book had me interested to the end and I really enjoyed reading it!
