This debut mystery introduces Magdalena Yoder, prim, proper, and persnickety proprietor of the PennDutch Inn, where guests luxuriate in the true "Amish experience," (read: doing Magdalena's chores and paying top dollar for the opportunity!). When one of her more reclusive guests takes a tumble down the PennDutch's picturesquely steep staircase and breaks his neck, the timing couldn't be worse. It's the start of hunting season - and her inn is packed to capacity! What at first seems to be a horrible accident (and insurance nightmare for Magdalena!) could turn out to be a much more sinister event; and when another mishap occurs, Magdalena is certain there is a killer in her group - and it's up to her to sniff out the culprit...before the world's most incompetent town sheriff throws her in jail! Readers will delight in this laugh-out-loud cozy mystery debut - and relish the country cooking recipes included.

I could not get into this book. The story moved too slowly. I do not like books written in the first person.

Magdalena Yoder isn't really quite middle-aged, but she's inherited a farm she can't run. She turns it into a Mennonite bed-and-breakfast - where the guests are expected to cook, clean, and do farm chores.
