Author Spotlight: Falling to Pieces by Vannetta Chapman

I met Vannetta Chapman at the ACFW conference two years ago. I instantly liked her and at this year's conference, seemed like we'd been friends forever.

She writes Amish mysteries for Zondervan and Amish romance for Harvest House. Don't blame her if I got that wrong, and Amish something else for Abingdon.

Here's an excerpt from Amazon:
"In this first book of a three-book series, author Vannetta Chapman brings a fresh twist to the popular Amish fiction genre. She blends the familiar components consumers love in Amish books---faith, community, simplicity, family---with an innovative who-done-it plot that keeps readers guessing right up to the last stitch in the quilt. When two women---one Amish, one English---each with different motives, join forces to organize a successful on-line quilt auction, neither expects nor wants a friendship. As different as night and day, Deborah and Callie are uneasy partners who simply want to make the best of a temporary situation. But a murder, a surprising prime suspect, a stubborn detective, and the town's reaction throw the two women together, and they form an unlikely alliance to solve a mystery and catch a killer. Set in the well-known Amish community of Shipshewana, Falling to Pieces will attract both devoted fans of the rapidly-growing Amish fiction genre, as well as those who are captivated by the Amish way of life."

Keep 'em coming, Vannetta!

P.S. I'm giving away ten copies of Freezing Point--you have until the end of this week to sign up over at Goodreads!

Hey, Beth! Thanks for the blogspot! And yes ... you have it correct. I write Amish mysteries for Zondervan and Amish romances for Harvest House and Abingdon. : ) BTW, stop by my blog next Wednesday to see a GREAT picture of Beth after she won her Carol Award. I was there, and I had the camera.
