When delicious baked goods become lethal, a trail of poetry leads to sweet-toothed killer.
"Don't taste it"
"Don't share it"
"Just throw it away"
"If you try my bakery pie"
"You won't live to see another day"
The Amish Artisan Village of Middlebury, Indiana, might be the last place you would ever expect to find a murderer, but Amber has been managing the Village for decades, and there's "nothing" she hasn't seen. Or so she thought.
When poetic notes begin appearing around the bakery, warning that some of the pies have been poisoned, Amber is as confused as she is concerned. Who poisons pies? And more to the point, who leaves poems of warning after they've done it? When Amber decides to help the police track down the sweet-toothed saboteur, she enlists the young Hannah Troyer for another round of Amish-style detective work.
Meanwhile, an attractive, older "Englischer" is preying on the single women of the Village, dating several of them at a time and generally alarming everyone who cares about the Amish girls' hearts. It's going to be a long summer in Middlebury.
Can Amber and Hannah help the police before the Poison Poet strikes a target? Both women will need to draw on their faith to preserve the peaceful community they've built in Middlebury . . . and protect the hearts and health of the girls who work in the Amish Artisan Village.
