Mystery Readers Book Club: Plain Murder, by Emma Miller
Fifteen years after leaving her Old Order Amish life, Rachel Mast has returned to Stone Mountain, Pennsylvania. Corporate success didn't bring true happiness, but Rachel also knows she can never be Amish again. Instead, she runs a B&B and tries to help her community in ways they can't help themselves.
But now a gruesome discovery has been made in her Uncle Aaron's cow pasture—the body of prominent Englisher businessman Willy O'Day. Aaron refuses to hire a lawyer, trusting his own innocence, and his faith, to see him through. Rachel isn't so sure, especially give the public feud between the two men. Her relatives won't speak to the police, but they will talk to Rachel—if she puts on a skirt and a bonnet. Rachel knows emotions and entanglements run as complicated in the Amish world as outside it. But as she delves deeper to clear Aaron's name, she discovers secrets that could put her own life in danger.
The Mystery Readers Book Club meets on the second Thursday of the month. Copies of the book are available at the Circulation Desk. All are welcome.
