Today I am reviewing Blueberry Cupcake Mystery… the first book in the Amish Sweet Shop Mystery series by Naomi Miller.
Here is a brief synopsis:
In the small town of Abbott Creek, mystery is as much a part of daily life as The Sweet Shop’s sugar cookies.
Katie Chupp spends her days at The Sweet Shop, taking care of customers and baking delicious treats . . . not exactly a profession where one expects to be thrown into the midst of mysteries and mayhem.
But when the bakery is broken into, someone has to find the thief . . . besides finding another place to do the baking and get the orders to the customers.
Is this a random theft, or is the thief trying to ruin the town’s Independence Day celebration?

I’m doing something a bit out of the ordinary.
I want to let Naomi talk about why Blueberry Cupcake Mystery is a different sort of book…
My inspiration originally came from books written to make Amish young people look weak and easily manipulated, or worldly.
I was working on an Amish Suspense novel, when I felt God guiding me to write a series of books that show family, faith, forgiveness, and grace — instead of murder, mayhem, and danger — or worse, vampires, zombies, and demons.
I believe that Blueberry Cupcake Mystery accomplishes this task, and I think you’ll enjoy this story. It has has been compared to the Nancy Drew series, and it’s perfect for young readers, but I’ve heard from many readers — young and old — who enjoyed the story.
It’s somewhere between a short story and a novella, but I truly felt that it was complete, so it’s a quick, fun read.
I hope readers pick up this book (and any future books in the series) when they need something to distract them from sadness, worry, and doubt. I hope reading a light-hearted, fun cozy mystery, will inspire readers and leave them feeling happy and content.
God bless you!
