A PERFECT SQUARE (VANNETTA CHAPMAN)
There's more to the quaint northern Indiana town of Shipshewana than handcrafted quilts, Amish-made furniture, immaculate farms, and close-knit families. When a dead girl is found floating in a local pond, murder is also afoot. And Reuben Fisher is in jail as the suspect!
Reuben refuses to divulge any information, even to clear himself of a crime Deborah is certain he didn't commit. So, with her English friend Callie-fellow sleuth and owner of Daisy's Quilt Shop-Deborah sets out to uncover the truth. But the mystery deepens when an elderly man seeks Callie's help in finding his long-lost daughter, missing since the days of the 1965 Palm Sunday Tornadoes.
An old man who has lost his past. A young man who may lose his future. Once again Deborah and Callie find themselves trying to piece together a crazy quilt of lives and events-one that can bring unexpected touches of God's grace and resolve to the tragedy that has shaken this quiet Amish community.
Deborah, Esther and Callie are piecing together a different type of quilt in this saga. They’re piecing together a the pieces to a murder after finding a young girl drowned in a pond after stopping to pick wildflowers at the side of the road. Not being right friendly with the local police, Officer Taylor, the girls try to gather their own information and piece together who, why and how this beautiful young woman was killed. I couldn’t help but cry when they approached Mr. Lapp with the crime scene photos. Excellent novel and I would highly recommend it to everyone!
