Plain DeadPlain Dead by Emma Miller
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rachel has left her Amish community only by keeping the Amish traditions that she was raised in. She is more English than Amish. Having her own business, wearing certain clothes and currently she is investigating a the murder of the local newspaperman who was always looking for smut on everyone including herself. She along with several others becomes the prime suspect of his murder. Being currently engaged to the local police detective Evan, has made the situation even worse as her past comes back to haunt her. The secret that could destroy her family and the community that she loves.

Rachel is determined to solve the murder when another suspicious death occurs among the Amish community. The evidence points that the death is Amish related. What secret would a practicing Amish kill for?

This Amish read was different from other Amish novels that I have the pleasure of reading. It was light on faith and religious undertones which I was a little disappointed in however, it might create a wider audience because of that. It is a clean book but it does not create the Amish has spiritual wonders but as men and women that make mistakes (what I would call sin) and overcome by coming clean. Learning to trust and lean on family. What I found enjoyable was Rachel’s relationship with her Amish parents and the heartbreak they had as she turned to her English ways. It was witty and had the spirit of love and fun.

A fun read with mystery and a community coming together!
