Kappy King and the Puppy Kaper (An Amish Mystery #1)
Content to be unmarried and plain-spoken, Kathryn "Kappy" King is an odd-woman-out in the Amish community of Blue Sky, Pennsylvania. But she's skilled at making the special kapps local women need to cover their hair. And she might be the only one who can unearth the danger hiding in this peaceful valley . . . When Kappy's neighbor, Ruth Peachey, turns up dead in her yard, everyone in Blue Sky believes it's a tragic accident. Until the Englisch police find the gentle dog breeder was deliberately struck down--and arrest her mentally-challenged son, Jimmy, for the crime . . . Jimmy's sister, Edie, returns to Blue Sky clear his name, yet no one will speak to a shunned former Amish woman, much less give her information. Determined to help, Kappy starts digging for the truth among her seemingly-innocent neighbors. But suddenly a series of suspicious "accidents" threatens Edie and the Peachey farm--property Edie is determined to protect for her brother's future. Now, as danger looms large in the small community, Kappy must bait a trap for a killer snapping hard at her heels. And Edie must decide whether to make a home once more in the town she thought she'd left behind . . .

    This was such a fun story. First, I just have to say that the cover is so adorable. I happen to have a beagle, and so I was instantly a fan of the cover and the story. It had the clean and fun elements of a cozy mystery, but the traditional elements of an Amish story (minus the big romance story). I had a smile on my face throughout the entire story and had a blast trying to solve the mystery alongside of Kappy and Edie.I think the thing I like the most was that there was not a huge romance plot This was such a fun story.

Don't get me wrong, I reading romantic novels, especially of the Amish genre. Sometimes it is just nice to see something different. I think Amy Lillard is onto something here with this new series and I can't wait to read the next one. She has a strong female lead in Kappy. Kappy is not your traditional Amish woman. She's not afraid to speak to someone under the Bann, and is not afraid the do a little research of her own. I loved her reference to reading Sherlock Holmes! I also thought it was great to include a down syndrome character. Jimmy was such a sweet character, and really a testimony to the fact that even though you may have a disability, you really can do anything you set your mind to. Proof to disregard the generalizations about disabled people, and get to know someone for who they really are. I cannot say enough how much this story put a smile of my face. It was a delight to read! I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Quirky and intriguing all rolled into one. This is not like any Amish Cozy you've read before and that in itself is refreshing . I enjoyed the author's prospective on how the Amish might view and deal with someone with special needs it was even more interesting in how they view other Amish that live in other district's besides their own. This was not just a solid and well written mystery it was also a teaching moment .
