Once again, Amber and Hanna find themselves in the midst of a mystery. This time, they're dealing with threats of poisoned pies and murders that don't actually occur. Until it actually does occur, and not by pie.
Murder Freshly Baked starts with the murder and then flashes back to the beginning and builds the story up to what led to the murder. This is a new approach that Vannetta Chapman hasn't used in her Amish Village Mysteries before. As the story unfolds, you continue to follow the story of Hannah and Jesse, Amber and Tate, and learn more about Preston's past and his struggle with PTSD. A subplot follows Preston's struggle with PTSD and trying to find a future with Zoey, with the help of a service dog.
This wasn't my favorite Amish Village Mystery, but I enjoyed it a lot. It was a relaxing summer read, perfect for a car trip, a day at the beach, or even just an afternoon at home while the kids play in the sprinkler. I recommend it for anyone looking for a nice, safe, cozy mystery to read.
