"Living in the small town of Heavenly, Pennsylvania, Claire Weatherly has come to admire the Amish for their wholesome, honest way of life. But she also knows that nothing is as simple as it seems-especially when murder disturbs the peace. Claire has always been game for a good puzzle, so when she hears that Mose Fisher has made one of his famous corn mazes, she can't wait to walk the paths and test her skill. But she'll have a much more serious puzzle to solve when, deep inside the maze, she discovers the body of Amish dairy farmer Harley Zook. It won't be easy for Detective Jakob Fisher to investigate a murder on his own father's farm-not after being shunned by the mana for leaving the Amish community and becoming a cop. With Mose himself as a suspect, and old family secrets cropping up, it's up to Claire to help catch the killer before she finds herself at a dead end.

I read a cozy mystery when my life gets a bit hectic, and I really have enjoyed the Amish mysteries by Laura Bradford. The author has painted a great view of Amish country and the people who live there, both Amish and Engish, in a very respectful manner.

She also writes a good mystery. I thought I had figured it out early on, but I missed the twist that made even more sense at the end.

A delightful mystery that showcases aspects of the Amish lifestyle that extends well beyond the traditional garb and obvious horse and buggy. Bradford delves into the heart of the people, both English and Amish, and explores the similarities and the differences. Her descriptions of the small, idyllic town, with its English and Amish neighbors working side by side, have me ready to pack my bags, sell my house, and move to Heavenly Pennsylvania! The plot was intriguing and the ending a surprise. This third book in the series can be read as a stand alone. I only wish Claire's budding romance would advance a little faster!
