Great second book in this Amish cozy mystery series

Courting Can Be Killer (An Amish Matchmaker Mystery Book 2)

Rating: 5 of 5

It is such a pleasure to read the second book in this series, which is an off-shoot from the author’s Amish Candy Shop mysteries. In this series, an Amish matchmaker, Millie, and her Englischer friend, Lois, solve the whodunnits.

Millie is finally settled back in her old hometown of Harvest, Ohio. A young man, Ben, she knew from her years in Michigan has moved to town. He doesn’t have family, so Millie becomes his almost aunt.

Ben is young but he falls in love and wants to marry a young woman, Tess, whose father is against the match. Millie is concerned because the couple doesn’t seem, to her, to be the right match but she also wants Ben to be happy.

When Ben dies in a warehouse fire, things don’t seem to add up. Was it a tragic accident or was it deliberately set? Did Ben set it himself?

Because Ben came to town to be with Millie, she feels like she must solve the mystery and keep Ben’s memory untarnished. Lois, as always, is right beside her. Lois is an outspoken lady, whose past we learn much more about in this story.

It is a great whodunnit and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the characters grow. I’m looking forward to reading more in this series and in the original series as well.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
