Review: Murder Tightly Knit by Vannetta Chapman

Life has calmed down at The Village since Amber and her new Amish friend Hannah had solved a murder in their peaceful community. Amber is enjoying her marriage to Tate and Hannah's relationship with Jesse is quickly moving toward engagement. Until Owen Esch is murdered and Jesse's older brother Andrew returns home once more. Soon, The Village staff are embroiled in another murder investigation and the local police and a Federal agent are looking at the wrong suspect. It's up to Amber, Hannah, and their friends to figure out who really killed Owen, and why.

I enjoyed my return to Middlebury and The Village in Murder Tightly Knit. The second Amish Village Mystery was as enjoyable as the first. Maybe more-so, since the friends had an established rapport and experience working together. With that already in place, their mystery-solving seemed to flow even more naturally.

I like how Vannetta Chapman kept so many secrets hidden from the readers in this book. The motive was unclear until near the end. Hints slowly began to unfold mid-way through, but even once I knew the motive, I didn't know WHO the killer really was until the last couple chapters. I also didn't know what Andrew was really up to until five chapters from the end.

Murder Tightly Knit was another enjoyable and fast-moving cozy mystery from Vanetta Chapman. I still haven't read her  Shipshewana Amish Mystery series, but I plan to. I'll be looking forward to the next Amish Village Mystery.
