Another romp in the countryside of the Pennsyulvania Dutch County. Did Matilda, the cow, really kick a man to death? Magdalena thinks not and when her cook is later suspected of poisioning the bread pudding, Magdalena gets into action to solve the mystery - - with NO help from the bumbling police chief, I might add.

What a great series - all of the mysteries by Myers center around food and cooking. Makes you hungry and want to try all the recipes - in spite of the murders...

This is the first book in the PennDutch series I've read and I was rather disappointed. Liked book in her other series -- the Den of Antiquity--much better.

I wasn't sure from the very beginning if this was supposed to be a farce or not. I didn't know whether to take the description of Amish and Mennonite cultures seriously. It's not that it's irreverent, but seems to make light of their way of life in a way that I'm not comfortable with. (I grew up a few miles from a Mennonite community and went to school with many of them.)
I did like the way Magdalena worked to solve the mystery......that, at least, wasn't unrealistic. She "detects" in a manner similar to Jessica Fletcher. I grew up in a very small town and can relate to how she pigeon holes characters at times, as well as the "everyone knows everyone" and what they're doing too.
I enjoyed the way Magdalena described her position as the owner of the country inn, how she decorated it and ran it. I've stayed in some B & Bs in historic cities and have become interested in how they are managed.

Although the storyline wasn't a favorite of mine, it was still an enjoyable read. This series is continually funny and keeps me laughing. I love the relationship between Mags and Freni. What a pair!

Tucked away in a picturesque corner of PA Dutch country, Magdalena Yoder's PA Dutch Inn is a treat, and a perfect locale for a cooking contest. Unfortunately, as Magdalena discovers when a corpse is found in the barn, some food is to die for...

A cow, Matilda, is the killer in this fun read. This series is a fun one to read. Quick read.
