Kappy King and the Pickle Kaper (An Amish Mystery #2) by Amy Lillard
Kathryn "Kappy" King is happy being a plain-spoken unmarried odd-woman-out in her Pennsylvania Amish hometown. Her talent is making the special kapps local women use to cover their hair. But her skill at uncovering trouble in this quiet valley is about to be truly tested . . .
At first, young Sally June Esh's tragic death doesn't look like murder. Even in peaceful Blue Sky, collisions between buggies and Englisch cars aren't unheard of. Still, the Eshes are skilled drivers used to delivering their popular pickles for miles around. And after Kappy notices Sally's buggy was deliberately run off the road, her ex-Amish friend Edie gets strange texts saying the crash was no accident . . .
Kappy won't let her community's silence keep justice from being done. And even though a still-shunned Edie thinks of moving back to the city, she and Kappy start rooting out secrets about the Eshes' long-time neighbors--and new pickle-producing rivals. But when they learn that Sally's brother is secretly courting an Englisch girl, their investigation takes a disturbing turn.
About The Author
One of those book that you can’t wait to read, but don’t know if you want to because then it will be done, but I couldn’t resist. Yes, this is the second book in this series and it can be read alone, enough information is provided, but you will miss out on a previously delightful book.
There is a sad part of this book, but most of it is full of chuckles, and becomes a quick page turner. We have two individual, one Amish, but considered a bit odd by the community, and the other an eclectic fence jumper, that came back to take care of her handicapped brother.
We get to watch, read, these two as they go about with their detective work of trying to solve a murder. Surprises and chuckles abound here, and I want more, and yes, I have to wait until December, but there is another coming!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Kensington, and was not required to give a positive review.
