When the Bishop Needs an Alibi: Review by Susan Scott Ferrell

When the Bishop Needs an Alibi

When the Bishop Needs an Alibi – Couldn’t Put it Down!

Vannetta Chapman has found a winner with her Amish Bishop Mysteries series. I was blown away by the first in the series, What the Bishop Saw. But could Book Two, When the Bishop Needs an Alibi, measure up? Absolutely!

Mild-mannered Bishop Henry Lapp…who happens to be a savant…is back! He is loving his laid-back life – until he’s in the middle of a murder, yet again.

There’s a new Englischer in town. She’s a waitress at the local diner, and something is not right. The Bishop tries to befriend her – to help her and whatever is causing her major distress.

When there is a murder, all signs point to the Bishop – and he’s in need of an alibi. His long-time friend (and then some), Emma, and her family must solve the crime quickly – before anyone else turns up dead. Perhaps Henry’s infamous sketches will help? Read and find out!

I was give When the Bishop Needs an Alibi in exchange for my honest review. It is incredible. Your heart will beat at a rapid thrum as you fly through the novel, late in the evening. It can be read as a stand-alone, but I strongly recommend reading Book One first to give you the history of Henry’s gift – and to create an even deeper richness to the storylines. I can hardly wait to see what Chapman does in the sequel. Grab your copy today!
