I'm so happy to join
Berkley Mystery
in celebrating the release of  
Book 7 in the Amish Mysteries
by Laura Bradford

Heavenly, PA has been transformed into a Christmas wonderland, and Claire is delighted to celebrate the season...but a fiendish killer has other plans in this all-new installment in the national bestselling series.

As the owner of Heavenly Treasures, the local gift shop, Claire is busier than ever helping her English customers (and even a few of her Amish friends, like Esther and Ben) find the perfect gift for the special people on their shopping list.

Claire makes sure she has time for her boyfriend, Detective Jakob Fisher. But the man, who was raised and then shunned by the Amish over his choice of career, has been unusually secretive lately. She tries not to worry, to trust their relationship, but trying and doing aren't exactly matching up.

Before she can figure out what's going on with Jakob, word comes that Ruth and Samuel Yoder are being questioned in the death of an elderly Amish couple, found murdered not long after the newlyweds were seen leaving the victims' farm. Ruth, in turn, seeks Claire's help in convincing the police that she and Samuel had nothing to do with what happened. But when Claire comes across a cryptic note tucked inside the wedding gift the victims had given the newlyweds no more than an hour before their murder, she finds herself in dire need of a little convincing as well.

Can Claire get to the bottom of things in time to ensure a merry Christmas for all?

I just finished reading, A KILLER CAROL, and I wish I had the next book in this series to read right now. Seriously, waiting for a new book in this series to be released it close to unbearable. I’m always bummed when I’m finished reading one. It’s like being on the best vacation ever, only to wake up the next day back at home.  

A KILLER CAROL (I miss the puny Amish themed title with this one), is another delightful installment to the Amish Mysteries. Author Laura Bradford has once again taken us to Heavenly, Pennsylvania. I love the setting of this series and I adore the characters.

Ms. Bradford knows how to write a mystery that pulls me in. This book was no different. There’s a double murder to solve this time, and the main suspects are an Amish couple that are friends of protagonist, Claire. While the Amish are said to do no harm, it’s easy to believe that just may be the case this time. With Amish and “English” (non-Amish) adding to the suspect pool, this was one mystery that had me stumped.

If you’re a fan of true to the meaning “cozy” mysteries, you’re going to love, A KILLER CAROL. If you’re an Amish fiction fan, you’re going to love, A KILLER CAROL. If you’re a fan of Laura Bradford, you’re . . . okay, you see where I’m heading with this right? Plain and simple, you are going to love, A KILLER CAROL!
