Murder, Served Simply by Isabella Alan (aka Amanda Flower)
One of the stops on a progressive dinner is at a hotel where a troupe of actors will be performing a controversial play portraying the Amish. Not everyone is happy that this acting troupe is in Holmes County and they are especially not happy that one of their former Amish young women is in the play. When the actress falls to her death during the performance of course Angie is hot on the spot to help solve the murder.
Putting her sleuthing skills to work Angie is off to interview potential suspects while avoiding spending any time with Ryan. Sheriff Mitchell is not too happy about Angie snooping around, and he is especially not happy about Ryan trying to win Angie back.
And of course it wouldn't be an Amish Quilt Shop Mystery without the antics of Angie's pets Oliver and Dodger. Oliver has a knack for understanding what his human wants and for getting into tight spots. Plus he is totally adorable with his reindeer sweater and red boots! And who could not fall in love with a pug that has appointed himself official caretaker of Dodger the kitten? Mystery and cute animals, what more could a reader ask for?
I believe this is the 3rd book in the series which I have read totally out of order! I read the 4th book first and then went back and got the first 3, plus I just saw that there looks to be a prequel which I just ordered. The last book of the series comes out in June 2016. I've really enjoyed reading about Angie and her fur babies, the goings on of Holmes County and especially Angie's relationship with the sheriff. I am looking forward to the last book coming out, but will definitely be sad to say good-bye to all of these characters.
