Material Witness

Item Details

Tragedy strikes on the opening night of the Fall Crafters Fair when a woman is killed in the parking lot of Daisy's Quilt Shop, and the only material witness is one of Melinda Byer's boys. The investigation takes a more bizarre turn when detective Shane Black becomes convinced the killer was actually after Callie. This time it's a madman loose in the largest crowd of the year, and he's looking for something or someone. If they can't figure out what, one of Deborah and Callie's close circle of friends may be next. Masked identities, antique quilts with hidden messages, an Amish boy whose handicap makes him stronger, one brave dog, and a possible hidden treasure ... this time it's nonstop action, danger, and a dash of romance.

A truly suspenseful story showing how the peace-loving Amish community bands together in times of trials, hardships, and murder. This book is very well written and the details given explaining the lifestyle and faith differences between the Amish and English shows a lot of research on the author's part. The characters come alive, the action is well paced and the murderer is a mystery until very near the end. The Amish children were shown to be much like the English children in their acts of deceit, but in the big scheme of things, their best intentions were for the safety of others and several people were saved as a result. Though often competing with Max, Shane makes his romantic feeling with Callie known and she responds in kind. Great book!
