A Plain Disappearance, by Amanda Flower, is the third book in An Appleseed Creek Mystery series. It follows A Plain Death, and A Plain Scandal, all of them set in the town of Appleseed Creek and centered around Chloe Humphrey.
Chloe and her boyfriend, Timothy, stumble upon the body of a young Amish teenager on their first date. Since Chloe has worked with the local police department in previous murder cases, the police chief asks her and Timothy to help in this one also, hoping the Amish will be more comfortable discussing things with them. When Timothy’s friend, Billy, turns out to be an ex-con living a false identity and becomes a suspect in the case, the couple set out to find the real killer. The only problem: there are many suspects, all with valid motives. The quest leads them into some interesting and dangerous situations before the end.
I enjoyed this book tremendously. I found it to be a new twist on the typical Amish fiction story, an Amish murder mystery. The characters were well-developed and realistic. I especially enjoyed Grandfather Zook and Thomas. They stole every scene in which they were involved.
I would definitely recommend this book to all who enjoy Amish fiction or suspense novels.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
