The national bestselling author of A Churn for the Worse returns to the Amish community of Heavenly, Pennsylvania, where shop owner Claire Weatherly must unravel the perplexing ties between a lost piece of jewelry and the disappearance of a cherished author.

When a mysterious rattling sound confounds the guests at Heavenly's local inn, Detective Jakob Fisher steps in and cleverly deduces the noise's source. But the necklace he discovers sparks an even larger mystery when Claire realizes it's connected to the writing of a popular author who's vanished and left her fans clamoring for a new book.

Determined to track down the necklace's owner, Claire vows to follow the clues wherever they lead--even if it means finding someone who might not want to be found . . .

Just as the book became interesting, the story stopped with no real ending. It was not even close. I will definitely think twice before purchasing another book in the series which is a shame because I enjoyed the previos books in the series. I assumed that this latest book would be of the same quality.

This story was good but expected a full book. I must have missed where it said it was only 53 pages...also it just abruptly real ending.

I loved this short story as I do all Ms. Bradford's books. She has a way of writing that puts into directly into the book. When I revisit Heavenly (where this series is set) I feel myself begin to relax with the Amish setting, I can almost hear the clopping of hooves with Amish buggies going by. This story is based on a mystery not murder which I find refreshing. I became as curious as Claire as to the owner of the necklace when more info was uncovered. I eagerly await the next book of this series as this one leads into it.

This short novella, part of the Amish Mystery series, contains a mystery for Claire to solve, but this time it is neither a crime nor a murder. Instead, the mystery, finding the owner of a lost necklace, provides Claire with an opportunity to examine her own path since moving to Heavenly, Pennsylvania, a town that embraces both Amish and English cultures. As she works through the clues, in addition to getting ready for Esther's baby shower and managing her store with the help of her assistant, she recognizes the importance of the life change she made, a change that has brought her to the caring aunt who stands with her in times of adversity, to he feeling of stability and friendship with her friends, as well as to a new love in Jacob, a man who sees her soul and loves her for herself. I look forward to the next book in this series.
