Publisher's Summary

When the coffee shop manager is murdered in Middlebury’s Amish Artisan Village, two women from different walks of life must join forces to solve the mystery.

Spring has arrived in Middlebury, Indiana, and Amber Wright is optimistic about the growing profit from her collection of Amish shops - until she receives a call that Ethan Gray is dead. Hurrying over to A Simple Blend, she finds a solitary hole in the front window and the store manager lying next to the espresso machine, dead from an apparent heart attack. All the money is still in his register.

When Amber hires a young Amish woman, Hannah Troyer, to take over the shop’s duties, the two women become fast friends - as well as amateur sleuths. The police believe Gray’s death is a by-product of vandalism, but Amber and Hannah aren’t convinced.Clues that don’t add up, a neighbor who is pulled into the midst of the investigation, a town with secrets to hide, and a blossoming romance - all will combine to push Amber and Hannah into unfamiliar roles in order to reveal answers to the mysteries around them.

    "Not impressed with this one"

    Eh. Wasn't 100% impressed. Her Shipshewana mysteries are MUCH better. This story line, while I do understand is Christian faith based, is loaded with God references and I will say I skipped ahead a lot. The narrator? Horrible. I enjoy Amish based stories and this woman's pronunciation of the Pennsylvania Dutch was TERRIBLE! I've heard a lot better. 100x better than this narrator. I may give the second book a try but not the Audible version if it's the same narrator.

    I love Christian fiction and cozy mysteries. I'm blind now, so I listen to all my books.

    "Murder Simply Brewed"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Excellent start to the series. I enjoyed the setting and characters.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    This was quite suspenseful, several red herrings. Also the method of murder and attempted murder were unique.


    What about Renee Ertl’s performance did you like?

    This narrator always does an excellent job. She keeps the listener's attention.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm looking forward to more in this series.

    "Amish Murder She Wrote"

    A nice gentle murder mystery that you could listen to again. No great detective literature but if you want something in the vein of Murder She Wrote then I would recommend Murder Simply Brewed. The references to the Pennsylvania Dutch adds a touch of the exotic - although I was surprised when the main heroine is an Amish girl working in a store and not at home. Also running around with a man on a Sunday I imagine is verboten. The voice is gentle and soothing and reads well. Good for a long journey. Would recommend.
