the series jumped the shark two books ago. i picked this one up in the vain hope that ms. myers might try to pull it all together and stop with the convoluted "family" relationships. wrong. it just made everything worse and this is the last myers book i'll ever read. it's really too bad, the first penndutch books were nice, light and breezy books that were entertaining.

3 stars. Light series read. The heroine is not someone I want to spend time with. I find her irritating and that feeling interferes with the story. I do admire her sense of humor and her awareness of her inconsistencies within her belief system and between her stated values and her thoughts and actions. There is a rich source of material here but it is largely unmixed. The book itself is a very light read but fine if that is what you are in the mood for and I was. The mystery was largely irrelevant so if that is what you want look elsewhere. I would not refuse to read another book by Ms Myers but sadly I don't feel a need to read more.

This was another great story in the Pennsylvania Dutch series. I love her characters and story-lines. Magdalena makes me laugh out loud and the mystery keeps me guessing until the end! A great cozy mystery and a wonderful read.

Let's say it right at the start:  I had not touched a Tamar Myers novel in almost 2 years.  I thought that the series had gone stale, that the best scenarios and humorous bits were ones that had been reprised from earlier novels in the series, and that there was little hope that things would improve.    Having recently completed “As the World Churns”, the 16th book in the Magdalena Yoder / Penn. Dutch Inn series, I will tip my hat to the author and will happily retract the last of the assertions from the first paragraph.  The novel is not perfect – which ones ARE? - but it is a definite step in the right direction.  Point to the author # 1 – there might be some tip-o-the-hats to earlier books in the series, but there are attempts – successful attempts – to introduce new humorous situations.  Point # 2 – there's a mystery in this book, but no murder; after all, even our protagonist makes reference to the ridiculously high murder rate in the small town.  Point # 3 – the author makes it clear that the next book in the series will have even more new situations for Magdelena and friends to deal with. I won't wait 2 years to read the next book in the series. RATING: 3 ½ stars, rounded up to 4 stars.

The day Magdalena has always been waiting for has finally come and now she is six hours into her honeymoon with Gabe Rosen, a doctor from New York City who came to Hernia Holstein to get away from the pressure. Unfortunately, his possessive mother Ida calls them on their honeymoon. When the phone rings again Magdalena thinks it is Ida, but it turns out to the warden at the state penitentiary he tells her a murderer escaped. He is the ex-chief of police of Hernia who targets her family. --- The honeymoon ends abruptly because Magdalene wants to make sure her loved ones are protected and because she wants to make sure everything is ready for the guests who are coming in for the first Hernia Holstein competition. The originator of the contest Doctor Shador is beaten up and can¿t remember who hurt him. Magdalena gets Gabe to judge the contest but soon after that he and Magdalena¿s step-daughter Alison disappear. Magdalena rounds up a posse to find them. --- AS THE WORLD CHURNS is as tasty as shoofly pie. This is a delightful mystery due to the characters, especially the secondary and recurring ones. Although ¿Monster-in-Law¿ is obviously not a new relationship concept, Ida as the mother in law from hell is Magdalena¿s worst enemy as she came to town to find Gabe which results in keeping the storyline fresh. Tamar Myers has quite a few shocks in store for the reader. These surprises will change Magdalene¿s thoughts about herself and everybody will not see the final surprise coming because the protagonist never thought it could happen. --- Harriet Klausner
