Summary

Two women from different walks of life must join together to solve a mystery in Middlebury’s Amish Artisan Village. 

Spring has arrived in Middlebury, Indiana, and Amber Wright is optimistic about the growing profit from her collection of Amish shops - until she receives a call that Ethan Gray is dead. Hurrying over to A Simple Blend, she finds a solitary hole in the front window and the store manager lying next to the espresso machine, dead from an apparent heart attack. All the money is still in his register. 

When Amber hires a young Amish woman, Hannah Troyer, to take over the shop’s duties, the two women become fast friends - as well as amateur sleuths. The police believe Gray’s death is a by-product of vandalism, but Amber and Hannah aren't convinced. 

Clues that don't add up, a neighbor who is pulled into the midst of the investigation, a town with secrets to hide, and a blossoming romance - all will combine to push Amber and Hannah into unfamiliar roles in order to reveal answers to the mysteries around them.

Chapman’s light touch and thoughtful representation of the Amish culture make Murder Simply Brewed a delightful read for an evening by a warm fire, a cup of tea in hand.” (Kelly Irvin, best-selling author of The Amish of Bee County series) 

Murder Simply Brewed combines all the coziness of an Amish home with the twists and turns of great suspense. With a little romance thrown in, you can’t go wrong!

“Vannetta Chapman’s Murder Simply Brewed is a heartwarming whudunit that is sure to satisfy fans of both Amish romance and cozy mystery.” (Amanda Flower, author of A Plain Disappearance)

WHAT A GREAT READ

I THOROUGHLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK. THE CHARACTERS ARE WELL DEVELOPED, OF VARIOUS GENERATIONS, BUT MATURE AND LIKEABLE. THE STORYLINE WAS A GOOD ONE. I ALSO LOVE THAT THIS AUTHOR/HER CHARACTERS, AMISH AND ENGLISCH, HONOR GOD IN THEIR LIVES, THOUGHTS, AND DECISIONS. SUCH A REFRESHING CHANGE, EVEN IN THE COZY GENRE. I HAVE PRE-ORDERED THE NEXT 2 BOOKS.
