    i wondered if Amanda released that she aid Ezekiel Young in book 2 of the Apple Creek Mystery Series but mentioned him again in Book 3 as being Elijah Young?

    I loved the Apple Creek Series and would buy the e-book if she were write another book in the Apple Creek Mystery Series. The mystery kept a person guessing until the end when the whodunit was revealed.

    Keep up the good work!

    I am delighted that Amanda Flower continues to surprise me with twists and turns in her Appleseed Creek Mystery series.

    I don't want to spoil it for you, but you SO need to read this series!

    But let me say right here and right now_ this story is NOT finished! Many authors go with a 3-book series, but there is so much more to be written_

    What happens to Chloe and Timothy? Becky and the rest of the Troyer family? Billy? Curt? Amanda, your readers want to know!

    Read it_ this book covers the English and Amish characters with great insight. I am thrilled to have discovered this series.

    I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

    Timothy Troyer is taking Chloe Humphrey on a sleigh ride and pulls onto the old Gundy place 'to stretch thier legs'. The purpose of this sleigh ride is for Timmy to give Chloe her Christmas present from him, a necklace with a hammer and a computer mouse. As they are stretching their legs, yep you guessed it, the gift is given but now it's ruined as they discover the body of a dead Amish girl. Not just any Amish girl but the sister of Ruth's (Timmy's little sister) best friend. This will only cause more problems between the Troyer's and the Lambright's.

    Amanda weaves a good story as Chloe and Timmy try to help solve this murder. There are lots of possibilities from family, to boyfriends, and to a couple of others in the community. Chloe does find herself in some pretty desperate situations as she is working this murder mystery.

    I would highly recommend this whole series, oh yes you MUST read the 3 books in order, to readers that like Amish books or mysteries. I really did love all three of these and this one has a good ending, I just wish I knew how things end with Chloe. Of course I guess we can make our own ending as to how we want things to be in her life. I know what I want, lol. Hopefully Amanda will write more books like these. Oh, and I really like what happens with Curt, I think you will too!

    My Review:

    This Amish mystery is quite the page turner! Dead bodies seem to abound in Flower's novels, and despite the unpleasantness of that, it makes for quite the whodunit! This novel builds on the previous two books in the series, so I do recommend that you read them to get the background story. The story is invariable made difficult by the fact that the Amish prefer to have as little intervention of the outside world, but the main characters, Chloe and Timothy, are former Amish and willing to lend a hand in the investigation regarding a teenager's death.

    What I found so unique and fresh about Flower's novels is that she took two popular genres and seamlessly created an entire new one! This novel was unforgettable, and I fond myself desperately wishing she decides to write a fourth book. A must read for a fascinating new genre, A Plain Disappearance is not to be missed!

    This book was provided for free by the publisher through Handlebar Media in exchange for an honest review.

    "A Plain Disappearance" by Amanda Flower is the third book in the 'An Appleseed Creek Mystery' series. The series focuses on Chloe, a computer worker, who moves to Amish country to work at the local college. In this novel she is courting Timothy, an ex-Amish man, and is solving murders in Knox County. I have not read the previous two novels in the series and found it not necessary to understand this one. Though, it would have been helpful. Chloe and Timothy find the body of Katie, a local Amish girl at an abandon barn and begin to help the local police solve the murder.

    This novel reads like a modern day Nancy Drew. It is full of sleuthing and clues. It is relatively tame, but entertaining. I never did figure out who the killer was in this one. Not till she told me, of course. Also I really enjoyed the Tee character and like the dynamic between the two young women. I wished she had put more of her in the book. There were a couple of things I didn't like. The stereotypical step-mother routine was a little tiring. Also, the story was told in first person, so I wish the author had gotten into Chloe's head a little bit more as well. I liked this book. It was nice. I will read the other books in this series when I get the chance. I can't recall who I got this book from. I know it was in exchange for a review. I believe it was from Handlebar. The publisher was B&H Publishing.
