Who killed Russell Dixon?
When Agatha Lapp’s brother and sister-in-law are tragically killed in a buggy accident, Agatha relocates to the new Amish community in Hunt Texas, nestled in the Texas Hill Country.  She’s there to make a success of her brother’s dream--an Amish B&B. Agatha is friendly, efficient, and capable. She's also a fifty-five year old widow who has learned to be independent. When she discovers Russell Dixon’s lifeless body in Cabin 3, she runs next door where retired detective Tony Vargas lives. The police determine that her guest died of natural causes, but as Agatha and Tony put together the events of the previous two days they become convinced that the police are Dead Wrong.
Dead Wrong is a story of discovering new friendships and embracing a different path in the midst of tragedy. Above all else, it's a story of God's grace and provision.

My thoughts (Reviewed by Marilyn):  Dead Wrong was appropriately titled for the latest cozy mystery by Vannetta Chapman. Wow, what a masterful and winsome mystery set in Hunt, Texas at Agatha’s Amish B&B. The characters are dimensional along with the plot and all the vivid penned words I felt like I was right there through all the enjoyable and unpleasant happenings. Agatha’s and Tony’s story kept me turning page after page till the end. There were times I thought I knew who the suspect was but Chapman’s secondary characters with their intertwined behavior and attitudes made it difficult to truly know till later. My heart broke at times for the accusations and all that Agatha had to endure but her faith, fortitude and spirit kept her going. I appreciated the way Tony came to life after coping with grief and isolating himself in his home when tragic struck at the B&B.

I’m highly recommending Dead Wrong to readers. This is one captivating story set in the new Amish community of Hunt, part of Texas Hill Country. Chapman delivered a poignant story with a cast of amiable characters that I look forward to reading more in this series, Agatha’s Amish B&B.

I received a complimentary copy of the book from the author and was no obligation to post a review. I have shared my own sincere opinion.
