Naomi loved a mystery, and it looked like the Amish woman was determined to do her part of the figuring out how to solve this one. No matter what anyone thought.

Book Beginnings
Cheryl Cooper drove her dark blue Ford Focus down the quiet country road, passing horse and buggy. The holidays were approaching, and she looked forward to experiencing them in this quaint town of Sugarcreek.

Even though she knew now that her move to Sugarcreek after her breakup with Lance had been the right decision, the familiarity of their holiday routines created a hole inside that she hadn't expected.
