Publisher's Summary

Tragedy strikes on the opening night of the Fall Crafters Fair when a woman is killed in the parking lot of Daisy's Quilt Shop and the only material witness is one of Melinda Byer's boys. The investigation takes a more bizarre turn when detective Shane Black becomes convinced the killer was actually after Callie.

This time it's a madman loose in the largest crowd of the year, and he's looking for something or someone. If they can't figure out what - or who - one of Deborah and Callie's close circle of friends may be next.

Masked identities, antique quilts with hidden messages, an Amish boy whose handicap makes him stronger, one brave dog, and a possible hidden treasure make for nonstop action, danger, and a dash of romance.

Love Amish mystery!

A very good book. I recommend all the books in this series : Falling to Pieces: A quilt shop murder, A Perfect Square: A Shipshewana Amish mystery Book 2, and Material Witness.
I loved all these mysteries.
Pam Ward is a great narrator. Easy to follow along with.
Vanetta Chapman is a terrific writer.

a book of Hope

listening to this gives one faith in all that is good. people are more than individuals. their lives are the sum of everything that happens to them and occurs between them. Their lives are deeply connected. all of ours should be.

Best Yet

I enjoyed this entire series, and while you could read/listen to them as stand alone books, the series gives much more insight.

I could not find the second book on audio, but I was able to get it for my Kindle.

The author always includes much more action than most writers of this genre, but I thought this was the most suspenseful of the series. I hope there are more.

Excellent as usual

However the ending is unsatisfactory. There is no completion. It simply stops and leaves the reader hanging. Most unsatisfactory conclusion to an otherwise excellent book. Too bad.

Close your eyes & be in Peaceful Amish country

Where does Material Witness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Out of everything I've listen to, probably a 3 1/2.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Material Witness?

When you realized the mean cop wasn't such a bad guy. I hated him at first.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Callie realize she had a closeness that felt like the family she never had with her friends.
