I couldn’t help but compare this novel to Cleo Coyle’s Coffeehouse Mystery series because of their similarities.
Homicide detective Asher Nate finds solving a murder in the Amish community challenging. First, the Amish community sticks close together and they don’t want outsiders interfering. Second, Asher doesn’t understand the subtleties and nuances of the culture and clues he uncovers. So he needs an Amish “interpreter” and asks Petunia to help.
