An Amish Bed and Breakfast Mystery with Recipes - PennDutch Mysteries #1

Readers will delight in this laugh-out-loud cozy mystery debut - and relish the country cooking recipes included.

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!

“Bubbling over with mirth and mystery.” -Dorothy Cannell

“A delicious treat!” -Carolyn G. Hart
