About The Buggy Before the Horse - Book 3 - Sugarcreek Amish Mysteries
As Thanksgiving approaches, Cheryl stumbles across a startling discovery: someone is sleeping in Naomi and Seth Millers’ winter buggy and helping himself to food from their farmhouse cellar. Could it be the same person who is stealing from businesses up and down Sugarcreek’s Main Street? Despite Naomi’s insistence on extending the hand of hospitality to their unknown guest, when items are stolen from the Swiss Miss gift shop, Cheryl intends to get to the bottom of these mysteries.
While odd notes and other clues begin to surface, the list of suspects grows to include a troubled foster child, an Amish handyman, a homeless shelter volunteer, a young backpacker, and just about every other tourist passing through town. Can Cheryl catch the thief before the Millers fall victim to a more serious crime?

A fun whodunit!
My first time reading an Amish mystery, but it won't be my last. As you guess at who could be committing the crimes, you learn not to judge a book by its' cover.
Cheryl is a nice lady in the story, but she assumed many times based on appearances and circumstances, the wrong people may have done the crimes. All along, it was the one person that she never gave a second glance to. Not only did Cheryl learn not to be so judgmental, but the reader does to. The idea is to look for signs, not assume them.
I loved the setting of Sugarcreek too. Seems like a great, close-knit community. I'm surprised a series of mysteries can come from such a place, but look forward to reading more Sugarcreek Amish Mysteries.
