    • Abstract:
      Summary: When widowed Millie Fisher moves back to her childhood home of Harvest, Ohio, she notices one thing right away-the young Amish are bungling their courtships and marrying the wrong people! A quiltmaker by trade, Millie has nevertheless stitched together a few lives in her time, with truly romantic results. Her first mission? Her own niece, widowed gardener Edith Hochstetler, recently engaged to rude, greedy Zeke Miller. Anyone can see he's not right for such a gentle young woman-except Edith herself. Pleased when she convinces the bride-to-be to leave her betrothed before the wedding, Millie is later panicked to find Zeke in Edith's greenhouse-as dead as a tulip in the middle of winter. To keep her niece out of prison-and to protect her own reputation-Millie will have to piece together a patchwork of clues to find a killer, before she becomes the next name on his list.

Matchmaker Millie Fisher returns to her Amish community in Harvest, Ohio, after a 10-year absence. She's relieved when her beloved niece Edith, owner of Edy's Greenhouse, tells her that she has changed her mind and decided not to marry Zeke Miller. Shortly after learning about Edith's decision, Millie finds Edith in her greenhouse standing over Zeke's dead body. Millie, along with her Englischer (non-Amish) friend Lois Henry, investigates to clear Edith and Lois' granddaughter, who has also become a suspect. Complicating matters, Millie must make peace with her nephew Enoch, whom she felt she wronged before he also left Harvest and his Amish faith. After Millie identifies the man she observed running away from the greenhouse right after the murder, it appears they solved the case—but did they? Plot twists, the lovingly described setting and customs of Millie's Amish community, quirky characters (including two rambunctious goats), and plenty of humor distinguish this first in a new series linked to Flower's Amish Candy Shop mysteries. Suggest to those who enjoy Tamar Myers' humorous Magdalena Yoder Pennsylvania Dutch cozies. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
