  • Why would someone kill Nathan King?

    The peace of a perfect November afternoon is shattered when Agatha hears the frantic bleating of goats across the river from her B&B. Agatha kayaks over with retired detective Tony and two guests--Bishop Henry and his wife Emma. They find the goats huddled together in a terrified group and Nathan lying face up beneath the Live Oak trees, lifeless eyes staring at the Texas sky.

    Then one of Agatha’s guests goes missing. She delves into Joey’s past and learns he was Dead Broke, so what was he doing vacationing at her B&B? And why was he pretending to be Amish when in fact his permanent address was Dallas, Texas? Most importantly, did Joey have anything to do with Nathan’s death? Agatha and Tony are at a dead end before the investigation has properly begun, but this time they receive help from unexpected places. Bishop Henry has a gift, and he’s no longer afraid to use it, even if doing so may put them all in danger as they work together to catch a killer.

    Dead Broke is a story about family secrets, rare gifts, and the joy of unexpected friendships.


    Marilyn’s thoughts: This novel by Vannetta Chapman grabbed my attention from the beginning till the end. I enjoyed this tale and read it in a day, that’s how amazing the story is. It was delightful to find that Bishop Henry and Emma Lapp are vacationing at Agatha’s Amish B& B when another murder occurred in Hunt, Texas. The Lapp’s are from Chapman’s The Amish Bishop Mysteries series.

     

    This is a fast paced, action filled novel with a second mystery surrounding the cozy mystery Chapman created. The characters were dimensional, some sneaking, other forthright and realistic. The clues along the way made you think a particular character murdered Nathan King but other clues dismissed that. So who is the murderer and why when Nathan was a devoted member of the Amish community?

     

    I look forward to the next cozy mystery in this series, Agatha’s Amish B & B. I highly recommend this book to fans of Vannetta Chapman and Amish cozy mysteries.

     

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and was under no obligation to write a review. I have expressed my own opinion.
