A Plain Disappearance by Amanda Flower
Looking for a fun read? Here's one for you!! :) The book A Plain Disappearance by Amanda Flower is a mystery within a kind of an Amish environment~~characters include some Amish, some who have left the Amish religion (but still remain a part of their family's lives) and non-Amish.
The main character of the book, Chloe (an Englischer), and her boyfriend Timothy (who has left the Amish faith) discover the dead body of an Amish girl and help the local authorities to find out who has killed her and why. That's the basic theme of the book. :) It's a great story, sprinkled with lots of humor and interesting facts about Amish families and beliefs, and a growing relationship between the two main characters. The book is the third in a series, and I had not read the first two, but it was no problem in understanding the story or the relationships between the characters (though it may have been a teeny bit easier to understand some of the attitudes had I read the first two).
There was adventure, excitement, romance, cross-cultural dealings, and great cooking :) It is set around Christmastime, but it is a book which is enjoyable at any time of the year. I don't want to give away the plot or even more info about the book because I want to highly recommend it! It's a great fun easy read, which will keep you wanting to read and read some more, till it's at the end! I definitely want to read the previous two books now, as well as any others that this author produces!
I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher for the purpose of this review. I was not required to write a positive review.
