Matchmaking Can Be Murder (An Amish Matchmaker Mystery #1) by Amanda Flower

Matchmaking can be murder . . . 

When widowed Millie Fisher moves back to her childhood home of Harvest, Ohio, she notices one thing right away—the young Amish are bungling their courtships and marrying the wrong people! A quiltmaker by trade, Millie has nevertheless stitched together a few lives in her time, with truly romantic results. Her first mission? Her own niece, widowed gardener Edith Hochstetler, recently engaged to rude, greedy Zeke Miller. Anyone can see he’s not right for such a gentle young woman—except Edith herself.

Pleased when she convinces the bride-to-be to leave her betrothed before the wedding, Millie is later panicked to find Zeke in Edith’s greenhouse—as dead as a tulip in the middle of winter. To keep her niece out of prison—and to protect her own reputation—Millie will have to piece together a patchwork of clues to find a killer, before she becomes the next name on his lis.


About The Author

Amanda Flower, a USA Today bestselling and Agatha Award-winning mystery author, started her writing career in elementary school when she read a story she wrote to her sixth grade class and had the class in stitches with her description of being stuck on the top of a Ferris wheel. She knew at that moment she’d found her calling of making people laugh with her words. In addition to being an author, Amanda is librarian in Northeast Ohio. 


My Review

I loved being back in Harvest, Ohio, and with familiar characters, this time the focus is not on a well-loved pig, but on two adorable goats. Now, these goats sure do play a great part in the story, but unfortunately that is another murder, and the sleuthing now happens with Aunt Millie, aka Amish Marple and her friend Lois. What a pair, and with a few chuckles, these two set about solving a crime.
The author keeps your attention from one suspect to another to another, and we start to worry if something will happen to Millie.
A different Amish story, and one that will make you glad you turned the first page!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Kensington, and was not required to give a positive review.
