Forget Me Not

Forget Me Not by Miralee Ferrell


Can a Lost Love be Redeemed?

Baker City, Oregon, 1881

Seven years ago, Julia McKenzie rejected the man she loved, wanting to experience more of life. Now, at the age of twenty-four, she regrets that decision. What will Seth think of her, when they encounter one another hundreds of miles from home? Will the man she cared for understand the direction her life has taken and love her in spite of her choices?

Pastor Seth Russell has never completely forgotten the girl he once courted. When she shows up in his new home of Baker City, all those feelings return. But why is she sneaking around town late at night? Even more important, will she reject him and break his heart again, or can God heal the breach between them?


Forget Me Not is a story that is as beautiful and unique as its namesake! This heartfelt novella is a wonderful addition to the Love Blossoms in Oregon series. While any of the books in the series can stand alone, I encourage you to read them in order. In doing so, you will come to know the residents of Baker City, Oregon, and understand their stories.

Miralee Ferrell is a master storyteller and has once again penned an exceptional story. I loved the endearing characters and their spiritual and emotional journeys! I was also touched by the themes of compassion and forgiveness, expressed so eloquently in this novella. One of my favorite quotes is, “Forgiving isn’t saying what they did is right, it’s simply letting go of the past and choosing to walk toward God’s light and love, instead of toward darkness.”

Inspiring words of wisdom and faith, woven together in this tender love story, make Forget Me Not a must read!

Raised in an Old Order Mennonite community, Rachel Stoltzfus is a strong-willed single woman, content living apart from mainstream society until whispers stir the moment her belly swells with new life. Refusing to repent and name the partner in her sin, Rachel feels the wrath of the religious sect as she is shunned by those she loves most. She is eventually coerced into leaving by her brother-in-law, the bishop.

But secrets run deep in this cloistered community, and the bishop is hiding some of his own, threatening his conscience and his very soul. When the life of Rachel’s baby is at stake, however, choices must be made that will bring the darkness to light, forever changing the lives of those who call Copper Creek home.

Author Interview and GIVEAWAY with Vannetta Chapman

11 Apr
I am so excited to share this interview, along with the opportunity to win a copy of Murder Simply Brewed I shared my thoughts of Murder Simply Brewed on Wednesday’s post


Welcome, Vannetta Chapman!


Murder Simply Brewed is set in an Amish Artisan Village.  What inspired this unique setting?

When I visited Middlebury for research, I stayed at the Essenhaus. It’s a lovely setting, and the “village” includes an inn, restaurant, bakery and several shops. The manager allowed me to interview him, and the rest — well, it went together easily.

You can visit them online at

In Murder Simply Brewed, which character most interested you while you were writing?  Why?

I could relate to both Hannah and Amber. Hannah is young and impressionable and full of life and energy. She’s a sweet girl. She’s also very bright. So many experiences are ahead of her (falling in love, marrying, starting a family) and she’s eagerly anticipating them all. It’s a time of life that I think we can all look back on and remember fondly. Hannah is older, and while she’s very happy in her work her love life is non-existent. In fact, she doesn’t even have very many friends because she’s so busy. THAT too is something most of us can relate to. I loved putting these two women together.

Did you encounter any surprises while you were writing Murder Simply Brewed?

Yes! One character, Preston, did NOT act like he was supposed to. I had envisioned him as this quasi dangerous, homeless man. He became one of my favorite characters.


Just for fun, please share 3 random facts we might not know about you.

  • I’m afraid of tall bridges (the kind you drive on that go way up high in the sky).
  • I have a new shelter dog named Phoebe. She’s a yellow lab and I adore her.
  • I live in a small town of 6,000.

What can we look forward to next in the Amish Village Mystery series? 

 Murder Tightly Knit  It is a fun, fun story and once again Hannah and Amber are called on to solve a mystery. This time, the federal government is involved. Oh my! But God’s grace is evident throughout as my characters learn that no problem or danger or incident is too big for God to use to his glory.

Thank you so much, Vannetta, for taking the time to answer these questions!

Thanks for having me! I’m happy to give away a copy of Murder Simply Brewed to one commenter with a U.S. address.  Since this book takes place in a coffee shop, how about we share our favorite summertime drink? 🙂

Murder Simply Brewed by Vannetta Chapman


Spring has arrived in Middlebury, Indiana, and Amber Wright is optimistic about the growing profit from her collection of Amish shops—until she receives a call that Ethan Gray is dead. Hurrying over to A Simple Blend, she finds a solitary hole in the front window and the store manager lying next to the espresso machine, dead from an apparent heart attack. All the money is still in his register.

When Amber hires a young Amish woman, Hannah Troyer, to take over the shop’s duties, the two women become fast friends—as well as amateur sleuths. The police believe Gray’s death is a by-product of vandalism, but Amber and Hannah aren’t convinced.

Clues that don’t add up, a neighbor who is pulled into the midst of the investigation, a town with secrets to hide, and a blossoming romance—all will combine to push Amber and Hannah into unfamiliar roles in order to reveal answers to the mysteries around them.


Once again, Vannetta Chapman has created a delicious blend of mystery, friendship, and romance!

Murder Simply Brewed is an engaging and entertaining tale!  The murder mystery and acts of vandalism kept me guessing and left me anxious to discover the culprit.  I was delighted by the special friendship that developed between Amber and Hannah and adored the romance that blossomed for each of these characters.  My favorite quote from the book is, “One can never guess who will or won’t become important in their life.”

In addition to the great story, I also enjoyed the glossary of Amish terms and the map of the Amish Artisan Village that were included in the front of the book. While Vannetta’s imagery is vivid, this pictorial reference of the village is an added pleasure!

I enjoyed this cozy mystery and am eager to discover what will happen next in the Amish Artisan Village!
