    Okay but unnecessary

    Not really sure why we need a second murder mystery series in the same small town. Many characters from the Amish Candy Shop series appear here (which does make sense). The made difference I suppose is that the Amish Candy shop stories are told by a main character who is "Englisch" while this series has an Amish story teller. The story itself is okay and it is nice to learn Millie's background. However, basically we have another story of a woman who thinks she is smarter than the police.

    Great start to a new series

    Amanda Flower has done it again! This spin-off of the Amish Candy Shop mystery series is a must read. The elderly crime solving duo of Millie (Amish Marple) and Lois, her zany Englisch friend, is the crime solving duo I didn't know that I needed until I read this book. They are hilarious together. Factor in the goats, Philip and Peter, the kitten Peaches, and a cameo of Jethro the pig, and this caused me to laugh out loud in several spots. We get to see a different side of Ruth, the bishop's wife, and this made her much more likeable. And there are a few other characters in this series that we've already met. I cannot wait for the next book. Fortunately, we have Marshmallow Malice from the candy shop series to look forward to (an excerpt is included at the end of this book.) Thank you to Netgalley and Kensington for the ARC. All opinions expressed are my own.

    A new spinoff series!

    Millie Fisher has moved back to her hometown of Harvest, Ohio. Being an Amish matchmaker, she has the ability to tell whether a couple are a good match or not. Sadly, her niece is set to marry a man that is definitely NOT a good match for her and Millie, a surrogate mother to Edith, decides to speak her mind before they marry. But Edith surprises her Aentie and tells her she is going to call off the engagement. After the engagement is called off Zeke, the spurned groom is found murdered in Edith’s greenhouse. Being fearful that Edith is the prime suspect, Millie is surprised to find that Zeke was also dating and planning a future with the grand daughter of her childhood best friend, Lois. Both Mille and Lois know their girls are innocent and decide to become the crime fighting duo of Holmes county. Now they need to find who killed Zeke and close this chapter in both girls’ lives, before the killer silences them. This new series, a spinoff of the Amish Candy Shop series, is off to a great start. You have so much going on in this first book with setting the stage, but the author doesn’t gloss over anything and truly sets the stage. If you have no yet had the pleasure of reading Amanda Flower’s work, this is a great one to start with. Who doesn’t love Amish country and a good mystery?

    I liked it.

    I received a free copy of MATCHMAKING CAN BE MURDER (Book 1 of the Amish Matchmaker Mysteries) by Amanda Flower in exchange for an honest review. This is set in Harvest, Ohio, which is the same community as the Amish Candy Shop Mysteries. Widow Millie Fisher is renown in her community as a matchmaker. Millie’s really worried about how her also-widowed niece Edith will react when Millie tells her that Edith shouldn’t marry her fiancé Zeke Miller. Millie’s relieved when Edith reveals that she intends to break off the engagement as soon as she can. That very evening, gossip of the broken engagement makes the town circuit. When Edith fails to bring her children to church the next day, Millie checks on her and finds Edith standing over Zeke’s lifeless body. Soon, Edith is the prime suspect, and Millie makes her debut as Amish Marple in an effort to keep her niece from being forced to relocate to a penitentiary. I enjoyed this book. If you like the Amish Candy Shop Mysteries, you should give this one a try. I recommend this book to fans of cozy mysteries featuring Amish farmers and tradespeople, quilters, mischievous animals, determined elders, and sincere hearts. #MatchmakingCanBeMurder #NetGalley

    A delightful new cozy mystery!

    Matchmaking Can Be Murder is the debut of An Amish Matchmaker Mystery series. It is a spin-off of An Amish Candy Shop Mystery series set in Harvest, Ohio with chocolatier, Bailey King operating Swissmen Sweets with the aid of her grandmother and cousin. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Matchmaking Can Be Murder. Millie Fisher is a spry sixty-seven year old woman who is a widow living on her own. Her sister for whom she was caring for the last ten years recently passed away, so Millie has moved back her hometown of Harvest, Ohio. Millie is a warm and likeable protagonist who has two mischievous goats named Peter and Phillip. They are Boer goats who provide many laugh out loud moments especially when chasing the bishop’s wife, Ruth. I like that the author took the time to develop the main characters and establish the setting. She provided us with lavish descriptions which brought the story alive for me. Millie reconnects with her old friend, Lois Henry. The pair are as opposite as they can be, but they make a great team. There are some familiar characters from An Amish Candy Shop Mystery series in Matchmaking Can Be Murder. Juliet Brody and her polka dotted pig, Jethro along with Deputy Aiden Brody, Bailey and a couple of others pop up when Millie is in Harvest. The mystery was thought out and developed. It is a clever whodunit that will have readers guessing up until the reveal (I just loved it). Many armchair sleuths will be surprised by the killer’s identity. Millie and Lois worked to prove Edith’s innocence. Their investigation was entertaining, and I was giggling frequently. I thought it was clever for Lois to nickname Millie the Amish Marple. Matchmaking Can Be Murder is an entertaining cozy mystery that I did not want to end. It was a pleasure to read this story and I am very eager for the next tale in this delightful new cozy mystery series. Millie has a couple of matchmaking requests to handle plus she just matched herself with an adorable kitten named Peaches. Matchmaking Can Be Murder has galloping goats, cavorting kittens, generous gossip, several secrets, and a meddling Amish Miss Marple.
