The success of Magdalena Yoder' s new Amish-Asian restaurant is threatened by murder in the deliciously quirky new Pennsylvania-Dutch mystery. Although the culinary fare at Magdalena Yoder' s new restaurant, Asian Sensations - a unique combination of Asian and Amish cuisine - is not to everyone' s taste, the good citizens of Hernia are unanimously agreed that the desserts concocted by the restaurant chef, Barbara Hostetler, are to die for. Not literally however. When a guest at the PennDutch Inn drops dead shortly after consuming a slice of Barbara' s delicious Blitz torte, Magdalena finds herself arrested for murder. Did someone deliberately set her up? In order to clear her name and protect her nearest and dearest, Magdalena must identify a ruthless killer - before they strike again.
This offbeat cozy, filled with laugh-out-loud humor, is distinguished by its numerous quirky characters, the beautifully described Pennsylvania Dutch setting and culture, and the unlikely but richly evoked Mennonite-Jewish relationship between Magdalena and Gabe * Booklist * Quirky characters abound in this mystery in which the acerbic, opinionated Magdalena' s first-person account drives this at times laugh-out-loud cozy * Booklist on Tea with Jam and Dread * Filled with the author' s trademark double entendres and bawdy humor, this tale of deceit, revenge, and murder is sure to please fans of willful, wordy and winsome Magdalena * Publishers Weekly on Tea with Jam and Dread * If you enjoy cozies with unrelenting slapstick humor, the Pennsylvania-Dutch mysteries are your cup of tea * Booklist on Batter Off Dead *
