Kappy King and the Puppy Kaper (Kappy King Mystery) by Amy Lillard
Content to be unmarried and plain-spoken, Kathryn “Kappy” King is an odd-woman-out in the Amish community of Blue Sky, Pennsylvania. But she’s skilled at making the special kapps local women need to cover their hair. And she might be the only one who can unearth the danger hiding in this peaceful valley . . .
When Kappy's neighbor, Ruth Peachey, turns up dead in her yard, everyone in Blue Sky believes it’s a tragic accident. Until the Englisch police find the gentle dog breeder was deliberately struck down—and arrest her mentally-challenged son, Jimmy, for the crime . . .
Jimmy’s sister, Edie, returns to Blue Sky clear his name, yet no one will speak to a shunned former Amish woman, much less give her information. Determined to help, Kappy starts digging for the truth among her seemingly-innocent neighbors. But suddenly a series of suspicious “accidents” threatens Edie and the Peachey farm—property Edie is determined to protect for her brother’s future.
Now, as danger looms large in the small community, Kappy must bait a trap for a killer snapping hard at her heels. And Edie must decide whether to make a home once more in the town she thought she’d left behind.
About The Author
A delightful and rather different Amish read, and oh so enjoyable and quickly became a page turner, and I didn’t want to put it down.
With a sad happening, a murder, and a handicapped son left without his mother, and soon ending up in the slammer, his words not mine. We begin an adventure, with Kappy King, a young woman the local Amish community thinks of as being different and mainly unseen. She soon teams up with the unseen or shunned daughter of the murdered woman Edie, and we are off on a task of finding the real murderer and freeing Jimmy.
Add to all of this a lot of adorable beagles, and you will soon feel your heart melted, as did Kappy, but who is out to destroy the family and their business? My guesses would change and then change again, and the eye witnesses were a lot like a group playing the old game of telephone. So, as you quickly turn the pages you will be guessing and changing your mind, at least I did, and you really may be surprised by who is causing all the chaos and worst of all a murderer.
I really enjoyed this read, and now I am looking forward to the next edition, coming soon!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Kensington, and was not required to give a positive review.
