“A Perfect Square” by Vanetta Chapman Is an Amish mystery featuring Deborah Yoder and Callie Harper in another Shipshewana, Indiana mystery. This story features Esther, who happens upon the body of a young woman on the Rueben and Tobias Fisher farm. Forensic evidence points to Rueben as the murderer. Rueben is sort of a recluse and very seldom mingles with the townspeople. Of course, Deborah and Callie know that Rueben is innocent, and just have to find a way to prove it.
Throughout the story, I formed opinions about who the guilty party was and the reasons for the death of the young woman. Never let it be said that a Shipshewana mystery is a straightforward read. I had so many suspects in my head throughout reading the story, which it was hard to determine exactly who the culprit was. I can’t say it was a surprise at the end, but it is the “between” the start and end of the book that makes this an interesting story.
I received a free print copy of this book for my honest review from the publisher. The opinions expressed here are my own.
