I don't know what magic pixie dust was in Kappy's story but I was hooked. Now Kappy is back again!
Kathryn "Kappy" King is happy being a plain-spoken unmarried odd-woman-out in her Pennsylvania Amish hometown. Her talent is making the special kapps local women use to cover their hair. But her skill at uncovering trouble in this quiet valley is about to be truly tested . . .
At first, young Sally June Esh's tragic death doesn't look like murder. Even in peaceful Blue Sky, collisions between buggies and Englisch cars aren't unheard of. Still, the Eshes are skilled drivers used to delivering their popular pickles for miles around. And after Kappy notices Sally's buggy was deliberately run off the road, her ex-Amish friend Edie gets strange texts saying the crash was no accident . . .
Kappy won't let her community's silence keep justice from being done. And even though a still-shunned Edie thinks of moving back to the city, she and Kappy start rooting out secrets about the Eshes' long-time neighbors--and new pickle-producing rivals. But when they learn that Sally's brother is secretly courting an Englisch girl, their investigation takes a disturbing turn . . .
You need to read book one, Kappy King and the Puppy Caper before you read this one. You will miss a lot of references back to the first story. It's also a really fun read and a great start to the series.
Kappy and Edie are just plain fun! No pun intended. Kappy marches to the beat of her own drum and together they are magic. This book is a really fun light read and Amy Lillard shows her versatility in being able to write a cozy mysteries as well as great fiction.
With humor, twists and turns, and guessing who done it until the end (I guessed totally wrong), this is one mystery that won't end up in my drawer or yours. So pick up your copy and enjoy a dill-lightful story. Happy Reading!
