    A delightful and rather different Amish read, and oh so enjoyable and quickly became a page turner, and I didn’t want to put it down.With a sad happening, a murder, and a handicapped son left without his mother, and soon ending up in the slammer, his words not mine. We begin an adventure, with Kappy King, a young woman the local Amish community thinks of as being different and mainly unseen. She soon teams up with the unseen or shunned daughter...

    This was such a fun story. First, I just have to say that the cover is so adorable. I happen to have a beagle, and so I was instantly a fan of the cover and the story. It had the clean and fun elements of a cozy mystery, but the traditional elements of an Amish story (minus the big romance story). I had a smile on my face throughout the entire story and had a blast trying to solve the mystery alongside of Kappy and Edie.I think the thing I like t...

    “…the realization made her want to pray and eat ice cream, not necessarily in that order.”Oh my goodness y’all. Kappy King bursts onto the scene in a delightfully quirky hot mess, and I loved every minute of it! She is one of the most unique Amish characters I’ve ever encountered (some of Jennifer Beckstrand’s characters would welcome Kappy with open arms), but it’s her interaction with her new Englisch best friend Edie that makes h...

    I'm a sucker for Amish books and an Amish cozy mystery is probably one of the best things for me.This book brought me so much joy! It was truly fun and quite different. I've read Amish mysteries before, but never a cozy mystery.Kappy is a spinster, who makes the "caps" that Amish ladies wear. She's a little bit odd, but she's very lovableWhen her neighbor is found murdered and her handicapped son is arrested, Kappy steps in helping out Ruth's dau...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was the first Amish cozy mystery I have ever read and it certainly made me want to read more books from this niche. I've been fascinated by the Amish way of life for quite some time, so it is no wonder that I jumped at the chance to read this book.The story moves at a brisk pace, although there was a moment or two when I thought the author could have glossed over a particular description or scene that wasn't add...

    The cover caught my attention. Kappy King_a young Amish woman living by herself is dismay to find her front door painted blue. She goes to confront the painter, only to find standing over the body of his Mother saying "I am sorry." Over and over again. The police array him but Happy feels he is not cable of murdering someone. She made friends with his sister and together they explore the factors of the case regardless of various kinds of harassme...

    The first in a new series, Kappy King and the Puppy Kaper is a fun and quirky Amish mystery. While it may be difficult to imagine an Amish woman turned Englischer who is shunned and an Amish woman who is considered odd by those in her community teaming up to solve a murder but that’s exactly what you have in this story. Edie Peachey, who left the Amish faith after being baptized into the church, has returned to Big Sky and is determined to find...

    Reviewed at The Power of Words: http://bit.ly/2AJa5b2Quirky, funny, entertaining, and full of puppy love … Kappy King and the Puppy Kaper has a lot of heart and I loved it! Amy Lillard begins a delightful new series that combines the best of cozy mystery and Amish fiction. I can honestly say that I’ve never read anything quite like it, and that’s very good.One strength of this mystery is the crime-solving duo of Kappy and Edie. I’m not su...

    I think the cover is what drew me in to this latest mystery; but unfortunately I won't be interested in the second one in this series. I enjoyed a few things about the story but Edie was a complete disappointment to me as a character. She didn't seem at all like someone who had spent over half her life being Amish and went so far as to be baptized into the church. I found her to be just unbelievable as a ex-Amish. Kappy was also quite unbelievabl...

    Murder and mystery are found in this intriguing story. Who committed the murder? Why? Will the truth ever be known? Does the sale of puppies have anything to do with the strange happenings in this town? I could not stop reading this one. The author has written another great story. I received a copy of this book from the author and this is my honest personal opinion.

    If you are fan of a bit of mystery and intrigue Amy Lillard has delivered it with Kappy King and the Puppy Kaper. What an enjoyable change of pace from the usually story lines.

Kappy teaches us the struggles of having faith in each other and loving each other. If you are a fan of Amy ...

    This was a fun and witty book to read with some intense moments to pure laughter. Kappy found herself caught in the middle of wanting to sew her kapps but she wanted to assist Edie, her neighbor’s shunned daughter, to find out who had killed her and Jimmy’s mother. When lovable mentally-challenged Jimmy was arrested they were off on a run with clues that went no where. Jimmy knew how to care for all the dogs, something Edie and Kappy had to t...

    I wasn't required to review this book but I wanted to anyway. This is a different sort of writing that Amy has done and I enjoyed it to the fullest!!Not being overly fond of mysteries I took quite an interest in it. I couldn't wait to see Who done it. I sort of figured it out from the beginning but I wanted to see how long it would take the girls.I definitely love Kappy!! I can definitely relate to her seeing as how she's on the different side of...

    I love Amish stories and Amy Lillard is among my favorite authors of this genre. While I liked the idea of an Amish mystery it didn't hit the mark for me. The story was too simplistic and didn't have the depth to the characters or the story that I've come to expect from this author.The story flowed smoothly and I got to know the characters but there was almost a feeling of slapstick as I read it. There was a crime to be solved and lots of other c...

    So Initially i looked over this book because of the title. It didn't strike me as a usual cozy title. I decided to see what the blurb was about and discovered that it was an Amish Cozy.  I only began reading Amish cozies last year (and Christian cozies this year) and I really enjoy them.In this book we are introduced to Kathryn King. Also known as Kappy in her community because she is the only Kapp maker in town (for those of you who don't alre...

    This was a very enjoyable read. A true cozy mystery set in Amish country with a strong sense of place and very character driven. The partnership of Kappy and Edie wouldn't work in another setting. They are great together. Kappy is a young Amish woman, still single and the only kapp maker in the area. After her family is killed in an accident, she is raised by her eccentric maiden aunt which explains Kappy's perspective on her life. She's not in t...

Her aunt was the official kapp maker and now it is Kappy's place in the communityJimmy lives across the road and in some ways seems simpler than most. He has a sister who decided not to...
