A PERFECT SQUARE
Chapman’s amateur sleuths are back and the latest Shipshewana Amish mystery will keep you engaged and guessing. Friendship, forgiveness, mercy and grace are key themes in this page-turner.
When Esther Zook finds a dead body floating in Reuben Fisher’s pond, their small town is turned upside down. Reuben is arrested and is refusing to speak up in his own defense. Esther’s friends, Deborah and Englisher Callie, are determined to prove Reuben’s innocence. Things get more interesting when Ira Bontrager goes to Callie and asks her to find his daughter, who has been missing since 1965. Is there a connection between the missing girl and the body in the pond? (ZONDERVAN, May, 352 pp., $12.99)
