In this first book of a three-book series, author Vannetta Chapman brings a fresh twist to the popular Amish fiction genre. She blends the familiar components consumers love in Amish books—faith, community, simplicity, family—with an innovative who-done-it plot that keeps readers guessing right up to the last stitch in the quilt. When two women—one Amish, one English—each with different motives, join forces to organize a successful online quilt auction, neither expects nor wants a friendship. As different as night and day, Deborah and Callie are uneasy partners who simply want to make the best of a temporary situation. But a murder, a surprising prime suspect, a stubborn detective, and the town’s reaction throw the two women together, and they form an unlikely alliance to solve a mystery and catch a killer.

Set in the well-known Amish community of Shipshewana, Falling to Pieces will attract both devoted fans of the rapidly-growing Amish fiction genre, as well as those who are captivated by the Amish way of life.

    " This was a fun book to read! I loved the characters and was so curious to find out "who dunnit?" and to try and figure out which guy will win Callie's heart, that I spent the day reading straight through the book. For once, I didn't cheat and read the ending first either! I'm looking forward to reading the next installment in this series. "

    " I highly recommend this book! This author does a great job of combining the Amish world with the Englisher ( the rest of us) in an enjoyable mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elva | 1/10/2014

    " a satisfying cozy mystery (took a while to take off, however). positive book where the good guys are pretty good and the bad guys are pretty bad. but not religious or preachy. i believe it's a rather accurate portrayal (even if a tad on the sunny side) of the amish culture. 4 of 5 *s. i do recommend it and look forward to reading the rest of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna Winters | 12/6/2013

    " Vannetta Chapman brings the Indiana Amish to life in her mystery, Falling to Pieces. Using a quilt shop in Shipshewana as the main venue for her story, she threads Amish ways, quilting, and murder seamlessly together to create a satisfying and often gripping story with warmhearted characters and a satisfying ending. "

    " Vannetta Chapman writes a great mystery series based in Shipshewana, IN. Falling To Pieces is the first in the series and I'm very happy to report that this is an excellent author with a talent for writing mysteries! I had a hard time putting the book down. Characters are very well developed, and the story moves along at a great pace. This Amish mystery has a great and multifaceted plot. I will definitely be reading this book a second time, perhaps a third! I can't wait to read the next in the series! "

    " Great new series. A cozy mystery with very different people becoming good friends. I enjoyed the Amish aspect to the story. For a change they are not portrayed to the extreme. "

    " Over the years I have read many stories about the Amish and Mennonite. Ms Chapman's stories are refreshing, engaging and enlightening. Reading a mystery novel without harsh images is truly fun and Falling to Pieces carried me quickly through the book. "
