"English" (non-Amish) Claire Weatherly has left New York and her ex for a more peaceful life in Heavenly, Pennsylvania, where she has opened her shop "Heavenly Treasures". She is living at her aunt's B&B and has begun to make friends with the Amish in the community, including handsome widower Benjamine Miller. When Benjamine's brother, hot tempered Eli is suspected of the murder of Walter Snow, the man who had stolen money from many of the Amish townspeople, Claire becomes involved because the dead man's body is discovered feet from her shop. Enter Jakob Fisher, the new and very good looking detective to investigate. But, he has his roots in Heavenly.....he was raised Amish and left the community and is consequently shunned by his prior friends and his family. Claire has placed herself in the position of mediator between Jakob and the rest of the Amish folks.....I really liked this book...the characters are warm and believable....the Amish customs and beliefs interesting and informative...I will defiantly be looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
