{Handlebar Blog Tour} A Plain Disappearance, Appleseed Creek Mystery Series #3 By: Amanda Flower

Book Description:  It's Christmastime in Amish Country, and Chloe Humphrey has begun settling into her life in Appleseed Creek excited to see where her new relationship with Timothy Troyer will lead. Unfortunately it leads to murder when the couple discovers the body of Amish teenager Katie Lambright while on their first date.
Near the scene there is evidence that Timothy's friend and auto mechanic Billy Thorpe is involved with the crime. The police reveal Billy is not really who he said he was and has been living the last decade in Knox County under a stolen alias. Now, Chloe and Timothy must find Billy, bring him to justice, or prove his innocence.

My Thoughts:  The Christmas reads are beginning to make a bookshelf appearance!  Oh! Yes!  I don't have time during the Christmas season to read so reading all about it before the season is fine with me!
A Plain Disappearance is the third book in the Appleseed Creek Mystery Series.
I've read the first two books and throughly enjoyed them so I was anxiously awaiting the third!
Chloe is SO funny and entertaining.  I love the characters that Amanda has created for they are so true to life and feel like the neighbors next door.
Now, Timothy and Chloe are in a relationship.  And on their very first "real" date Timothy's sweet dog, Mabel, finds a body (dead in the cold snow) in the corner of an old barn.  Not the best of first dates!  But it only grows more intense from here . . . because all the evidence points to Timothy's friend, Billy, who also happens to be the local mechanic. 
The plot grows thicker when the police find out that Billy is actually an assumed alias.
There is a side line of Chloe's forgiveness of her father and trying to forge a new relationship with him and her step-mother.
Many things aren't as they seem...or people as they present themselves. 
I loved this read!  Such a great mystery! Truly a hard mystery to figure out!
The romance is fun and filled with all things Christmasy!
