Beginning today, I plan to devote the month of September 2014 to best-selling author, Vannetta Chapman…
The first book I plan to read and review is the first book I ever read by Vannetta Chapman… it’s a wonderful story called A Simple Amish Christmas. I found it and ordered it on Amazon in November 2010… yep, it only took this book to get me hooked – forever to be a Vannetta Chapman fan!
The sequel, which came out three years later, is called The Christmas Quilt, which was also chosen to be a Quilts of Love selection. It’s the perfect sequel. Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year… so it’s no wonder I fell in love with these two titles!
For Christmas 2012, my daughter bought me three books – the Shipshewana Amish Mystery series by – of course, Vannetta Chapman!
When she ordered them, the pictures showed them all as having the original covers. However, when they arrived, the third book cover was different (don’t you just hate that).
Last year I gave away a copy of Falling to Pieces… Vanetta found out and sent me another copy of it – autographed – and with the newer cover.
Now I have two books in the series with the original cover… and two books in the series with the new cover… of course, I’m hoping to find book #2 in the new cover so I will have a matching set. But I refuse to give away the first two books because my daughter bought them for me – even though they don’t match the others!
** An ebook compilation of books 1, 2, and 3 of the Shipshewana Amish Mystery series will be available on 9-23-2014
I plan to purchase this ebook compilation, because I enjoy having copies on my iPad so I can read them anytime – especially when I’m traveling (or at the dentist/doctors office, waiting in lines, etc).
Vannetta has written a novella for An Amish Garden… Watch for Where Healing Blooms.
… and Vannetta graciously offered her fans two free ebook short stories to follow the Pebble Creek series… they are (respectively) Home to Pebble Creek and Christmas at Pebble Creek.
Recently Vannetta stepped just outside the Amish community… to write an inspirational romantic suspense novel. The title of this novel is HIDDEN and it is the first of the Jacobs Family Series. This novel will be available on 9-30-2014.
