Who the Bishop Knows (The Amish Bishop Mysteries #3) by Vannetta Chapman






What You Don't See Might Hurt You

Every year, residents of the small Amish community in Monte Vista, Colorado, look forward to the Ski Hi Stampede, the state's oldest professional rodeo. The rodeo is always good, clean entertainment for the hardworking farmers of the San Luis Valley. But this year, the Stampede turns deadly for one Amish man. Did rodeo fans see an unfortunate accident? Or something more sinister?

Amish bishop Henry Lapp is known far and wide for his uncanny ability to draw and remember the smallest details of anything he's seen, skills that have served him well in past investigations. He was at the rodeo that day. The problem? He didn't see Jason Scott's death.

With a murderer on the loose and members of his community being threatened, Henry must act fast. But can he solve a crime he didn't see? This time around, Henry will have to rely on his keen sense of human character and observation, skills he's honed in his role as bishop, if he hopes to crack the case.

What the Bishop Knows is a story of accepting our talents, putting one another first, and trusting that God will care for His children.

My Review




This is the third book in this series and I am rather sad to see it end, I loved being with Henry, the Amish Bishop, and Emma, his soon to be wife, and would love to continue on with their lives.
In this book, the author has an Amish man competing in a Rodeo, and then he is murdered, in front of everyone, but no one seems to know where the shot came from.
As the story unfolds, surprises abound, and we learn of a dark side of this Rodeo Amish man, and who is responsible, and when you think you know the answers, things begin to spiral.
While I guessed early on who the perpetrator was, the story still kept me page turning, and when you learn how the shot was fired was mind boggling.
As I said I will miss this bishop and the people around him, and really hope for more.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Harvest House, and was not required to give a positive review.
