A CHURN FOR THE WORSEfinalI’m thrilled to share with you the cover for A CHURN FOR THE WORSE (Amish Mysteries #5)!!!!  Once again, my cover artist hit a homerun. The shovel, the horse, the candies on the ground–all important in this story.

The book will release on March 1st and is currently available for pre-order. For what it’s worth, pre-orders will be a very big factor in whether this series continues beyond this book.

Thank you for being readers and for loving this series as much as I do!


Amish # 5 Has A Title!

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

Next year’s installment in my Amish Mysteries (aka Amish # 5), finally has a title.

 A CHURN FOR THE WORSE will release on March 1, 2016.

As for what the book is about, here’s the back cover copy for your enjoyment…

The national bestselling author of Suspendered Sentence returns to  Heavenly, Pennsylvania, where shop owner Claire Weatherby and Detective Jakob Fisher must put on their thinking kapps to solve a string of robberies and a murder in the Amish community…

When an Amish farmer is found dead in his barn, his family accepts his death as God’s will. But Detective Jakob Fisher knows the farmer didn’t hit himself in the head with the shovel lying beside his body. And when it comes to light that a stranger appeared at the farmer’s home and now money is missing from their milk can, Fisher suspects robbery as the motive—especially when another Amish family is victimized.

Getting to the truth proves difficult, however, since Fisher has two strikes against him in the eyes of the Amish—his chosen career, and the Amish roots he left behind. Desperate to stop a murderous thief, Fisher turns to Heavenly Treasures shop owner Claire Weatherly for help. The trust she’s earned from the Amish community enables her to go where the detective cannot—straight into the path of a killer…
