Review: When the Bishop Needs an Alibi by:Vannetta Chapman

 When the Bishop Needs an Alibi (The Amish Bishop Mysteries #2)
About the Book:
A Terrible Secret Hides in the Bulrushes

Amish bishop Henry Lapp eagerly awaits the annual arrival of 20,000 sandhill cranes to the San Luis Valley of Colorado. But his visit to the Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge reveals more than just a miracle of God's creation. Hidden among the bulrushes and cattails is the deceased body of a young woman.

As the local authorities attempt to unravel the mystery, Henry feels God's calling to use his extraordinary talent to aid in the investigation. His ability to draw from memory in photographic detail could help solve this puzzling case.

Henry's closest friend, Emma Fisher, has always urged him to embrace his gift. As their relationship deepens, Henry realizes his involvement could put him and those he loves in the direct path of a killer, one who is willing to do anything to cover up a brutal crime, including framing the bishop.

When the Bishop Needs an Alibi is a compelling story of faith, friendship, and finding courage only God can provide.


My Review:
 Henry Lapp is not your average ordinary Amish bishop. He has extraordinary talents and gifts that the Lord has trusted him with that at this present moment can be used and he must muster up the courage to use those gifts and talents.

 Presently, there is a murder mystery that Henry knows he could be of some help on, yet he isn't sure and many times our fears give way and we stand by and do nothing. But after much encouragement from his friend, Emma Fisher he decides to give it a shot.

 Poor Henry, soon finds himself in a place he never expected and it will take the Amish community to bail him out and come to his rescue. He is so uncertain but still has to have faith to continue on his journey to help find the killer and to find them quickly.

 Vannetta has written a great addition to the series, as always. She is getting better and better at mystery writing. I can't wait to see what's next in this line of mysteries!
