The Crepes of Wrath by Tamar Myers

An Amish Bed and Breakfast Mystery with Recipes � PennDutch Mysteries #9

When kindly Lizzie Mast, a local Amish woman�and Hernia�s worst cook�is found poisoned by a bad plate of crepes, bumbling local police chief, Melvin Stoltzfus, begs Magdalena Yoder, the irrepressible owner (and sleuth extraordinaire!) of the PennDutch Inn, to help him investigate.

With her bed and breakfast full of quirky guests, and her handsome new boyfriend to entertain, Magdalena isn�t sure she has time for Stoltzfus�s foolery. Cleverly (and frugally!) she puts her seven guests on A.L.P.O. (the Amish Lifestyle Plan Option), where guests pay an additional fee for the opportunity to cook for themselves, clean for themselves and do Magdalena�s chores for her.

Still, solving the crime won�t be a plate of flapjacks; Lizzie�s husband blames the neighbor�s �Amish gone wild� sons; whose rumschpringa exploits are wreaking havoc but even more shocking, the trail of clues leads straight back to the PennDutch Inn�and Magdalena fears that this killer is cooking up something flat-out deadly!!!

�Feisty Mennonite innkeeper and talented sleuth Magdalena Yoder offers a mix of murder and mouthwatering recipes in this, her ninth Pennsylvania Dutch mystery.� �Publishers Weekly

�Bubbling over with mirth and mystery.� �Dorothy Cannell

�A delicious treat.� �Carolyn G. Hart

About the Author

Tamar Myers was born and raised in the Belgian Congo (now just the Congo). Her parents were missionaries to a tribe which, at that time, were known as headhunters and used human skulls for drinking cups. Because of her pale blue eyes, Tamar�s nickname was Ugly Eyes.
Her boarding school was two days away by truck, and sometimes it was necessary to wade through crocodile infested-waters to reach it. Other dangers she encountered as a child were cobras, deadly green mambas, and the voracious armies of driver ants that ate every animal (and human) that didn�t get out of their way.
At sixteen, Tamar's family settled in America, and she immediately underwent culture shock: she didn�t know how to dial a telephone, cross a street at a stoplight, or use a vending machine. She lucked out, however, by meeting her husband, Jeffrey, on her first day at an American high school. They literally bumped heads while he was leaving, and she entering, the Civics classroom.
In college Tamar began to submit novels for publication, but it took twenty-three years for her to get published. Persistence paid off, however, because Tamar is now the author of three ongoing mystery series: One is set in Amish Pennsylvania and features Magdalena Yoder, an Amish-Mennonite sleuth who runs a bed and breakfast inn; one, set in the Carolinas, centers around the adventures of Abigail Timberlake, who runs an antique and collectable store (the Den of Antiquity); and the third is set in the Africa of her youth, with its colorful, unique inhabitants.
Tamar now calls North Carolina home. She lives with her husband, a Basenji dog named Pagan, two rescue kitties: a very large Bengal named Nkashama, and an orange tabby cat who goes by the name of Dumpster Boy. Tamar enjoys gardening (she is a Master Gardner), bonsai, travel, painting and, of course, reading. She's currently working on her next Amish mystery.

This was an excellent read and I look forward to following the continued adventures of Marley and the locals of Wildwood Cove. This was definitely a page turner that I could not put down and finished in one day. The characters were developed at just the right speed and I did not figure out who "done it" until the heroine had figured it out. I especially appreciated the sweet romance aspect of the story and can't wait to read the follow up story as well as the rest that are sure to come in this new and exciting series!

Now she has big decisions to make….will she go back to her life in Seattle or stay in Wildwood Cove????? This is the first book in A Pancake House Mystery series. It was an enjoyable read.

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.

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.

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.
