Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
If there's one thing the folks of quiet Hernia, Pennsylvania, agree on, it's that local Lizzie Mast was the world's worst cook. But when someone poisons her to death with a bad batch of crepes, even her critics think that someone's gone too far. But who would care enough to murder Lizzie, just to get her out of the kitchen? That's what newly "deputized" investigator Magdalena Yoder, proprietor of the PennDutch Inn, is determined to find out-even if it means pestering the wrong people, ignoring the new arrival of demanding guests at the inn, and stirring up the wrath of a clever and determined killer.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Feisty Mennonite innkeeper and talented sleuth Magdalena Yoder offers a mix of murder and mouthwatering recipes in this, her ninth Pennsylvania Dutch mystery. When Lizzie Mast, a kindly Amish woman, dies of a drug overdose, Melvin Stoltzfus, the inept police chief of Hernia, Pa., asks Magdalena to investigate. Leaving her seven zany guests to fend for themselves on the A.L.P.O. (Amish Lifestyle Plan Option) at the PennDutch Inn and trying not to neglect her new love interest, handsome Jewish doctor Gabriel Rosen, Magdalena calls on Joseph Mast, Lizzie's widowed husband. Joseph attributes his wife's death to his neighbors the Keims and "rumschpringe" (the Amish equivalent of teenage rebellion). The two eldest Keim boys secretly purchased a car and ran over the Masts' Vietnamese pot-bellied pig and pet ferret. In retaliation, Joseph shot out the car's tires. Is it a simple case of retribution or something more sinister that led to Lizzie's murder? The Pennsylvania Dutch countryside provides a bucolic setting for Magdalena as she weaves in and out of the English (non-Amish) and Amish societies in her search for the killer. Magdalena's irrepressible personality, amusing colloquial speech and quirky habits (she keeps her pet kitten in her bra) will delight the reader, while the asides on Amish society offer insights into a traditional culture trying to retain its integrity in the 21st century.

From The Critics
This Pennsylvania Dutch mystery with recipes blends humor, an affection for food, and investigative sleuthing under one cover and is certain to attract a large audience. Lizzie may have been the world's worst cook; but that was no reason for her murder via crepe. An investigation follows, with many twists of plot.

    Excellent amateur sleuth tale

    In Hernia, Pennsylvania, lives large Amish and Mennonite populations with tourists from around the world converging on the small area. Most visitors stay at the Penn-Dutch Inn run by Magdalena Yoder, a keen businessperson who has managed to turn a failing farm into a profit making enterprise. Magdalena has also an uncanny ability to solve homicide cases. <P> Her brother-in-law, the local police chief, asks Magdalena to help him solve the murder of Lizzie Mast, a devout Mennonite married to a Viet Nam veteran. Lizzie died from an overdose of Angel Dust. Apparently, just before she died, Lizzie received a threatening note that the postmaster saw. However, a hit and run driver deliberately kills the postmaster. Magdalena learns that some local teens are experimenting with illegal drugs and concludes that their supplier provided the Angel Dust to Lizzie. Magdalena must identify the seller in order to stop more deaths form occurring. <P> Every book that Tamar Myers writes in her wonderful ¿Pennsylvania Dutch with recipes¿ series contains much humor and insight. However, the current tale, THE CREPES OF WRATH, is just plain funny while providing even more understanding of the communities than the strong previous entries. The witty repartees and double entendres allow readers to feel good even while murder and drugs serve as the focus of the mystery. The characters are likable while the mystery is well drawn and executed. On a scale from one to five, this regional amateur sleuth novel is a ten. <P>Harriet Klausner
