Book Review - A Plain Disappearance
A Plain Disappearance, written by Amanda Flower, is An Appleseed Creek Mystery. I've been lucky enough to have read the first two books and this book follows Chloe Humphrey as she tries to discover who murdered a young Amish girl. Chloe is in a new relationship with Timothy Troyer and is out on a drive with him when they discover the body of Katie Lambright. All the signs point to Tim's friend Billy as being the killer who disappears soon after the murder. Chloe and Timothy work to find Billy and are determined to either prove his innocence or bring him to justice.
What I like about the character of Chloe is that she isn't a detective but just a regular girl. But somehow she finds herself in situations where there has been a murder and she starts to get involved in the investigation much to the chagrin of the local police chief. At the same time, Chloe is in the beginning of a relationship with Tim Troyer who has left the Amish faith, so that's another difficult situation that she is in. Chloe is a likeable character and I was definitely rooting for her to solve the murder mystery and also for things to work out with Tim.
I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to others.
