An Amish Mysteries Christmas Story

Friday, November 6th, 2015

Be sure to come back right here in about a week for details on the Christmas-themed E-short story (99 cents) I am releasing for the Amish Mysteries. Don’t have an E-reader? No worries. The major E-reader sites offer free apps that enable you to read an E-only story on any device–phone, tablet, home computer.

As for the story, itself?  It’s called, A Christmas Mourning.

Here’s a wee bit about it, just to get you excited!

Claire Weatherly has come to respect how the Amish of Heavenly, Pennsylvania, value tradition. But not all traditions are necessarily quaint. When a decades-old mystery threatens the well-being of local police detective Jakob Fisher, she’ll pit herself against a community rooted in the past so that he can get on with his future.

When Claire decides to visit the one-room schoolhouse Jakob attended as a young Amish boy, she’s puzzled by his refusal to go along too. As Jakob tells his story, Claire is stunned and saddened by the heartbreaking tale of a childhood mistake that led to the mysterious disappearance of a precious family artifact—and signaled the first break between Jakob and his mother, made all the more painful now that he’s been shunned by the family and community he loves.

Knowing there’s only one way to help heal the irreparable wound that continues to haunt Jakob, Claire sets off to follow the trail of the missing heirloom, never suspecting that it will lead her to Jakob’s oldest friend, a long-ago Christmas secret, and an enduring truth about family, love, and the power of forgiveness.

Be sure to come back early next week to see the cover…and for release information.
