Welcome to Appleseed Creek, the heart of Ohio's Amish Country, where life is not as serene as it seems.

While her Cleveland friends relocated to Southern California and Italy, 24-year-old computer whiz Chloe Humphrey moves with some uncertainty to Appleseed Creek to direct technology services at a nearby college. Her first acquaintance is Becky, an ex-Amish teenager looking for a new home.

While driving Chloe's car, Becky collides with a buggy, killing an Amish elder. But what looks like an accident is soon labeled murder when police discover the car's cut brake line.

Now, Chloe must take on the role of amateur sleuth to discover who the real intended victim was before the murderer makes a second attempt. Becky's handsome Amish-turned-Mennonite brother, Timothy, a local carpenter, comes in handy along the way. With God's help, they'll solve the mystery that's rocking this small community.
