"Every year, residents of the small Amish community in Monte Vista, Colorado, look forward to the Ski Hi Stampede, the state's oldest professional rodeo. The rodeo is always good, clean entertainment for the hardworking farmers of the San Luis Valley. But this year, the Stampede turns deadly for one Amish man. Did rodeo fans see an unfortunate accident? Or something more sinister? Amish bishop Henry Lapp is known far and wide for his uncanny ability to draw and remember the smallest details of anything he's seen, skills that have served him well in past investigations. He was at the rodeo that day. The problem? He didn't see Jason Scott's death. With a murderer on the loose and members of his community being threatened, Henry must act fast. But can he solve a crime he didn't see? This time around, Henry will have to rely on his keen sense of human character and observation, skills he's honed in his role as bishop, if he hopes to crack the case. What the Bishop Knows is a story of accepting our talents, putting one another first, and trusting that God will care for His children"-- Provided by publisher.

4 of 5 stars “The last book in the series."
Henry Lapp and Emma Fisher are attending the annual rodeo in their small community of Monte Vista, Colorado. It is the state’s oldest professional rodeo and a source of entertainment for those from miles around. The Amish and English both attend and enjoy the event together. Before the professionals take the stage, it is amateur hour for those who aspire to join the professional circuit. A young Amish man, who is still enjoying his Rumspringa, has his sight set on this career, but someone has another idea in mind. Henry questions and observes various people as he tries to ferret out the killer.

5 of 5 stars "Just as with book 1& 2 this book did not disappoint!
Book 3 in the Series The Amish Bishop Mysteries by Vannetta Chapman. If you have read books 1 & 2 you know our beloved Bishop Henry has a very special yet unique gift from God, I won’t reveal it in case we have some who have yet to read this series, I will say that in book three Henry finds for the first time he can’t count on this gift in a way he has before but with that said God never forsakes us and you will see in this wonderful book that Vannetta takes you on a wonderful journey of mystery we have come to love with her books. I thoroughly enjoyed this book as well as the whole series and would recommend it

5 of 5 stars “An exciting sequel!"
Like the first two books in this series, book number three grabs your attention right away and never turns loose! The love story is beautifully woven together with the beauty and simplicity of ordinary days and the fact that God knows the number of our days and the challenges we will face. Vannetta Chapman's books always convey the joy of a simple life, a humble spirit and a heart of forgiveness. This one was no exception. I look forward to the next book by this very talented author!

5 of 5 stars “Great series!"
I loved each of the three books in the series. I liked romance occurring in both young and old. I liked the way the Amish and English became a respectful and friendly community. And the mysteries were unique and kept me guessing.

4 of 5 stars “Bishop Henry Is Truly Special."
Love this series. This was a fun and interesting read. Me. Chapman always educates as well as entertains. Look forward to more from the Bishop and his family.

5 of 5 stars “A really good mystery!"
This book is really good. It keeps you in suspense until close to the end. Well written!
