What the Bishop Saw by Vanetta Chapman - Review of the first book in the Amish Bishop Mystery series

(copied from Amazon.com)

Somewhere in the Embers Lies the Truth

A fire blazes out of control in the San Luis Valley of Colorado, leaving an elderly Amish bachelor dead. Bishop Henry Lapp rushes to the scene, and he learns the fire was no accident. Someone intended to kill Vernon Frey. But who would want to kill Vernon? Well, practically everyone--Amish and Englisch alike.

When the police point the finger at a suspect Henry knows is innocent, the bishop must decide whether or not to use his mysterious, God-given gift--one he's tried desperately to ignore all these years--to try and set the record straight. His close friend and neighbor, Emma, encourages Henry to follow God's leading.

Could the clue to solving the case be locked somewhere deep in his memory? Will Henry find the courage to move forward in faith and put the right person behind bars? Is his friendship with Emma becoming something more?

What the Bishop Saw is a story of extraordinary talents, the bonds of love and friendship, and the unfailing grace of God.

What a twist for an Amish story, Vanetta never lets up, she just keeps pulling you along so you don't want to put the book down. The Amish and the Englisch have to work together, some of the Amish disagree, will it all work out, what happens when the 'youngee' try to take things into their own hands? I can recommend this book as a great read.
