A Plain Disappearance

A Plain Disappearance
An Appleseed Creek Mystery Book III
Amanda Flower

Chloe is beginning to feel at home in Appleseed. She's enjoying her roommate Becky and her new relationship with Timothy. But trouble pops up again on their first date. They find a young Amish girl, murdered, by a barn. Chloe's life seems to get a little bit complicated as she assists the police in looking for the murderer while still trying to maintain her relationships with friends and family.

I haven't read the previous books in this series or anything by this author before I picked up this book. And while reading the first book would definitely make this book clearer, I do think it can be read alone. The characters were realistic and enjoyable. Even the more disagreeable characters were interesting and had depth. I really enjoyed the way the author had the story flowing at a fast pace without losing any of the mystery feel. The romantic parts of the story were clean and well written. It is difficult to pick up a book in the middle of the series and still have it grab you. Usually the author grabs you in the first book and then just finishes the story in the rest of the books. Not so with this author. I am definitely hooked and plan to purchase the previous two books in the series.  Will be keeping this author on my radar.

I received this book free of charge from Handlebar Marketing in exchange for my honest review.
