Book Review | Hearse and Buggy by Laura Bradford

Date Published | June 5, 2012

Book Club Date | August 2021

Goodreads Rating | 5

Overall | I’m a big Laura Bradford fan and also an Amish cozy mystery fan so put the 2 together and you get a new favorite series!

Pros | I liked that the main character had no connections to the Amish except that she simply loved the culture and the people and decided to buy a business in town and be around them. I always thought that if I retired, it would be to an Amish community where I’d open up a B&B for tourists or a tea shop.

Cons | dNone

Warnings | None

POV| Third Person POV Past Tense

Will I Be Continuing With The Series | Yes

Description | Claire Weatherly has fled a high-stress lifestyle for a slower pace—in Amish country: Heavenly, Pennsylvania. She only planned a short visit but instead found herself opening an Amish specialty shop, Heavenly Treasures, and settling in. Claire loves her new home, and she’s slowly making friends among the locals, including Esther, a young Amish woman who works in the shop. So when the store’s former owner, the unlikable Walter Snow, is murdered, and the man Esther is sweet on becomes a suspect, Claire can’t help but get involved.

Newly returned Detective Jakob Fisher, who left Heavenly—and his Amish upbringing—as a teenager, is on the case. But his investigation is stalled by the fact that none of his former community will speak with him. Claire’s connections make her the perfect go-between.

As Claire investigates, she uncovers more than she wanted to know about her neighbors. And suddenly, everything she had hoped to find in this peaceful refuge is at risk…
