STORY-LINE THE AMISH WIDOWER BY KATIE FISHER:

Suzanne Hosteller’s back in small town Charity to investigate the murder of Joseph Eshes.  Leaving her Amish life and faith to work in law enforcement, she never thought she’d be back in Charity.  Life with the Englisch has not been without its trials;  including a Captain jealous because she beat out his kids for her current job.   Suzanne’s investigating the case without a partner and she’s an outsider.  A case without a preliminary investigation and a Sheriff unwilling to help, she will not solve this case quickly or easily.  Then add in the fact, her Aunt Milly has decided to play matchmaker.  Suzanne’s former beau, Gideon Brunstetter, still lives in Charity.  Things are warming up in the small town of Charity.  My romance book review of The Amish Widower follows.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Author Katie Fisher created an awesome Amish romance mystery in The Amish WidowerFisher filled this story with emotion which the reader can feel on every page;  the anguish of a love not fulfilled, the sorrow of a dead wife, and guilt.  As well as, the grief of the missing girls from Charity.  Due to Fisher‘s vivid writing, I could feel Suzanne grief of her missing mother and murdered father.  I could feel Suzanne’s anguish as she questions her place in the world;  she’s neither Amish nor EnglischShe’s torn as she’s once more in her former Amish community.   Yet, so lonely in the Englisch world.  I loved watching Katie Fisher mature Suzanne.  Skillfully Fisher led Suzanne to realize the true reasons she left the Amish and her faith.

Gideon you will love;  he’s a strong man who lost his way.  Gideon’s riddled with guilt he must face and resolve.  But through faith in God and prayer, he found his way back.  He’s ready to help Suzanne any way he can.  Suzanne ask his help in the investigation;  knowing he can open doors unavailable to her as an Englisch.

In the lead story,The Amish Best Friends, Hannah Zook teaches school in Orthause, Pennsylvania.  Devout and dedicated to the Amish way of life, when Mennonite Eli Reimer wants to marry her, she’s thrown into a quarry.  For Eli demands she join his church, forsaking her Amish church.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

I found this story well-written and entertaining.  Fisher created a first class romance suspense mystery.  Her writing is clear, concise, and easy to follow, as well as, containing scenes which transition smoothly.  Fisher keep the mystery and suspense at high peak and did not reveal the murderer until the last possible moment.  With several suspects, I did not guess the correct culprit.

STORY LINE BREAKING AMISH TRADITION:

Author Sandra Becker’s new box set Breaking Amish Tradition has nine heartwarming books; you meet continuing characters in the various stories.  I love books with continuing themes and characters.  Some of the stories have two to three parts.  Immersing her stories in fundamental Amish traditions, romance, and Amish way of life, Becker’s nine books provide enjoyment and entertainment.

Books 1 and 2 finds Miriam facing her baptism without joy.  Falling in love with an Englisher John, they find trials and tribulations.  In books 3, 4 and 5, you find Sarah, aka Wildflower, born to Joshua and Mary, falling in love with banished Doctor Jacob, during rumspringa.  They must face the heart breaking possibility of Sarah losing one of the things she most loves.

Book 6 will introduce you to the Zook family of brothers and sisters.  Sarah and Aaron have many questions and hesitations before finding happy ever after.  In Book 7, twins Rachel and Abigail Zook must face separation and finding the one they thought they wanted may not be the one God intends to impart to them.

Book 8 introduces Joseph Zook and Rebecca Weidler.  Rebecca is the bane of Joseph’s life as a child.  However, God and nature turn the tables on Joseph.  Zachary Zook’s story revealed in Book 9 is next.  With his rumspringa approaching, he has questions.  Girls annoy him; he is man of the land with tools in hands and the smell of earth in nostrils.  God places Elisabeth in his path.  Elizabeth has questions and trials of her own.  This is their story.
