Amish Village Mystery #1 

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

“Chapman’s latest is a mix of mystery and romance with vivid characters, a realistic setting and themes of loss, trust and love.” — Romantic Times, four-star review

Lisa Book thoughts – I picked this book out because I needed a break from what I usually read. I lived many years around the Amish in Indiana & Michigan this author weaves a great story about the people.the culture in a story about life & murder.  The characters and the setting are real and take you time when things were simple or maybe not. If you are a fan of mysteries or Amish read this book and I  also will be sharing this with my Mom it’s something she would enjoy too.  Lisa

At the end of her third year at Harvard Law, all Skylar Crosby wants is to figure out her next steps: a job, an apartment, and enough money to get her father out of trouble. She simply has no room for romance, especially the kind that might break your heart. But on a dark, snowy night, when she’s stranded in the living room of Brandon Sterling, the notorious CEO of Sterling Ventures and one of the best attorneys in Boston, all of those boundaries are about to be knocked down.

Brandon Sterling never believed in fate. A man of his own making, he firmly credits his successes to hard work. Now he’s living in the lap of luxury, and it’s never mattered to him that increasing success meant increased isolation in his big house on Beacon Street. Then he comes home to a feisty redhead sitting on his windowsill. Suddenly, the idea of love at first sight seems like the most plausible thing in the world…if only the one person he wants to give his heart to would actually take it.

Freezing by Tarrah Anders

Is Now Live!



Keeping someones secret tore my life apart. Ive paid retribution and now Ive got to get my life back in order. Ive made enough mistakes and now I need to spill my secrets to make those Ive wronged understand why I did what I did.

Upon my release from prison, I made a set of goalsnone of them included a raven-haired beauty who spoke her mind. I didnt intend to have someone in my life romantically, but fate brought us together and I couldnt ignore the attraction any longer.

What I didnt know was that she would teach me that one of my goals could have a different meaning. Now, my life is opposite of how it used to be; Im no longer the man who gambles, drinks and sleeps around.

With the strength of her by my side, I can do anything.

About the Author:
Meet Tarrah. She’s a contemporary romancer who is all about the feels, with the twists of sexy mixed in between. She’s been writing since before she can remember. Writing was always a passion, that was kept it under wraps, stayed on the backburner and never vocalized or followed through with my desire to be a writer, until she read a horrible book and thought: ‘I could do better than that!’ She kept her writing romance from her husband for nearly two years, but finally told him because… royalties and taxes. Now, he lovingly helps with ‘research’ and uses him for his amazing Photoshop skills for her covers.
She is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area but living in beautiful San Diego with her own little family while working during the day as a social worker working with the homeless. She is a hardcore San Francisco Giants fan and anything dealing with cupcakes and Zombies.

Her writing style is that she tries to keep on earth. She tries her best to not be too unrealistic with her characters, what they do and how they live. She wants her books to be relatable and not to create too many eye rolls when a character starts calling his love interest baby after knowing her for 5 minutes.

She has written and self-published 4 books and one novella. They’re all dual point of view aside from the novella. She is currently working on several pieces but focusing on two mainly. Thematically, the novels are friends to lovers, random hook-ups and office romances mixed with a whole lot of fun in the middle.
