Murder Freshly Baked (An Amish Village Mystery) - Vannetta Chapman

I did not read the first two books in the series so I may have been a little lost not knowing who the characters were or much about the setting but I was underwhelmed by this mystery.

The first chapter of the book opened up with the murder of one of the characters being killed at the finish line of a race. Then the second chapter began one month earlier with the main character walking through town on her way to a yarn shop to knit/crochet discussing an Amish woman's interest in the "Englisch" guy that according to the first chapter will be murdered within the next month. There was no reason to become invested in their budding relationship or whatever was supposed to happen.

This book unfortunately was a struggle for me to read (again, I didn't read the other books in the series so that may be the reason).

I received a free ARC of this book via NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.
