Assaulted Pretzel is the second book in the An Amish Mystery ser
Assaulted Pretzel is the second book in the An Amish Mystery series by Laura Bradford. And a delightful addition it is.
Things are looking up for the quiet community of Heavenly, PA. The annual Amish Food Festival is about to kick and Rob Karble, president of Karble Toys. Karble is town to talk with Daniel Lapp, an accomplished Amish toymaker, with the understanding that the local Amish men will be producing the toys.
Clair is excited for the food festival to begin, as this is the first one she has attended and is planning on sampling a little bit of everything. First, she stops by the police station to see if Jakob, an Amish man who has given up the faith, to become a policeman. As Claire and Jakob are enjoying walking around and sampling the foods, Claire quite literally trips over the dead body of Rob Karble. Almost immediately a letter is being passed around that stated Karble had no intention of having the toys made in Heavenly.
Suspicion automatically falls on Daniel and Issac, the one who had written Karble and gotten him interested in the first place.
Claire goes into action to look for information as to who the murder might be and to also be a "go between" for Jakob and the area's Amish.
I fell that Bradford does an excellent job of depicting the Amish lifestyle and of their rules.
Looking forward to the next book in series.

During the annual Amish Food Festival, the discovery of a body puts a damper on all the fun. Claire wants to help her new friends clear the names of the Amish toy makers. Her new friendship with Detective Jakob Fisher doesn't hurt when it comes to the sharing of certain pieces of information.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

ASSAULTED PRETZEL is now on my list of favorite books. The setting of Heavenly,PA makes you want to vacation there. The characters Clair, Diane, Ester, Jakob and Benjamin are wonderful! Great new insight is given into the life of the Amish. I don't often reread books, but I know I'll want to go back to this one one day. Make sure to buy HEARSE AND BUGGY, the first in this delightful series. Also an amazing read. I'm only sorry that the highest rating is 5 stars, because I would give both books 10x that amount! I can hardly wait for the 3rd book in this series!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
