Popular Books Murder, Handcrafted Dollycas’s ThoughtsAnother amazing read from Isabella Alan.Angie Braddock life is so good, you just know something is going to go wrong. That’s is just what happens when her dad starts a huge kitchen redo and injures himself. Angie asks her friend Jonah to take over the remodeling while her dad heals but the Amish man ends up in the middle of a murder investigation when the electrician for the job is found dead outside her parent’s home. Angie knows it is up to her to find the real killer and proving Jonah’s innocence sure sparks her resolve. Hopefully she can do it without making her boyfriend, Sheriff James Mitchell too upset or getting herself right in the killer’s sights.I love, love, love this series. I love the way Angie and James’ relationship is progressing even when getting a major push from her mom. I love Angie’s relationship with Jonah. Friends since childhood, their relationship could have gone several ways. But it has grown into a platonic true friendship and certain people just have to deal with it. I also love the way the author’s knowledge of Amish life is told in these stories. There are some conflicts between the Amish and the Englisch but Angie plays the perfect co-between so most things can be resolved.Where this story tops previous installments in the unexpected character the author introduces. BIGFOOT!! in Ohio!! Could it be??? No spoilers here! You are going to have to read the book yourself!!As always, Ms. Alan gives us a great mystery that kept me guessing right up to the end. It was filled with plenty of action too.An awesome story with fantastic characters, humans and their 4 legged friends.I am so upset this is the last book in the series. I definitely wanted more trips to Holmes County. Thank you to the author for leaving us with a happy ending.

  26. Murder Handcrafted is the 5th book written by Isabella Alan in her Amish Quilt Shop Mystery series In this book we are once again back with Angie Braddock chasing down another murderer Throughout the story the autHor gives us readers several suspects to consider and how they could be the killer.The characters are well described as well as all the scenery You can actually place the suspect at the scene if the crime Angie has to solve this under along with the mysterious sightings of a creature th [...]


  27. A sturdy, workmanlike book with a couple editing errors.Most egregiously, on page 253, Jonah was reported as having had to return to his farm an hour before but yet was standing with her mother observing flooring being laid In a minor overlook, Angie is sweeping up yet broken glass after having cleaned it all up the night before and after re sweeping the room in case there were any tiny fragments that had escaped.Mostly a readable, enjoyable book.


  28. The fifth book in the series and unfortunately my least favorite I was glad that it wasn t all about the wedding maybe that s book 6 However I was disappointed by the ongoing naivety of the main characters and I got this murderer fairly early in the plot Overall a nice gentle cozy mystery including the Amish, quilting, farm country, electricity and family relationships.


  29. I love the Amish Quilt Shop Mystery series I have read it many times, It s like visiting old friends I recommend it to everyone who would love a good cleanBook full of Love and Joy
