Who the Bishop Knows – Less Savant, but Definite Suspense
I’ve been riveted by Vannetta Chapman’s Amish Bishop series – what an amazing storyline! And I certainly would love to meet Bishop Henry Lapp in real life. But would this last and final installment of the series be all that I hope it would be? Not exactly, but still worth the read.
Who the Bishop Knows once again follows the affable Bishop Lapp, who is plagued/blessed with the ability to draw photo-quality images – but he’s unaware that his brain store these photos. When there’s a murder of an Amish man at a nearby rodeo event, there’s a problem…Henry was at the event, but he didn’t see the murder – or did he? Henry is faced with threats to others in his community. He’s got to help – but how can he when he didn’t see anything?
I was given Who the Bishop Knows in exchange for my honest review. I would recommend reading this series in sequential order. While technically it could be read as a stand-alone, it would be best to start at the beginning. While I love seeing what Bishop Henry was up to – and love his courtship with Emma – I was a bit disappointed with this final book. The series to date has focused heavily on Henry’s abilities. And while I am aware that this literally was more about “what the Bishop knows,” I was hoping for more of a peek into that world. That being said, Chapman does an amazing job of tying the characters together, and she is certainly a master of suspense! Here’s hoping we’ll see Bishop Lapp again – what an amazing character!
