Vannetta Chapman has written a very appealing series of Amish mysteries, The Amish Bishop Mysteries. “Who the Bishop Knows” is the third book of the series. I have read each one and am amazed at the convoluted situations that define each story. Although Bishop Henry Lapp is unable to use his extraordinary talent of drawing exactly what and who he has seen, in this murder case, it is nonetheless exciting to see how he manages to use his perceptions to solve the murder.
Although the English police and the Amish do not usually work together, in this instance, Henry and the Sheriff complement each other’s abilities in solving the intricacies of investigations. Henry must persuade the members of his community to give help to the authorities in order to find the person who is responsible. These mysteries of Ms. Chapmans definitely do not lack suspects. This is what motivates the reader to make sure to read every page until the end. There is something relatable to the case on every page.
I have enjoyed reading the Bishop Series and hope that Ms. Chapman continues to write in this vein. I highly recommend her work.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Harvest House Publishers through NetGalley.com. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
