Tamar Myers’s mouthwatering mysteries have 'all the right ingredients', including hilarious heroine Magdalena Yoder. In this new novel, Magdalena’s cozy PennDutch Inn is faced with some very deadly competition. Kentucky Colonel George Custard thinks Magdalena’s hometown of Hernia, Pennsylvania is perfect. He has decided to build his new mega five-star hotel there. And if everything goes according to plan, roads will be widened and wealthy tourists will start pouring in by the thousands. But not everyone thinks this is such a good idea, as the new superstructure will surely destroy the town’s quaint and quiet ambience. Meanwhile, Hernia has another unwelcome guest to worry about, after wild reports that Bigfoot is roaming the area. The colonel is found murdered. With the police investigation going nowhere, Magdalena takes it upon herself to find out who caused Custard’s last stand. She must stay one step ahead of both the rumors and the builders to solve the case, restore peace and save her beloved town.

User Review  - Goodreads

My first book in this Pennsylvania Dutch series. It was written entirely in first person as the main character, which took me a little time to get used to. But, there were some lines that made me laugh out loud. A fun cozy. Good quick read. Read full review

About the author (2004)

Tamar Myers was born and raised in the Belgian Congo (now just the Congo). Her parents were missionaries. She was sixteen when her family settled in America. In college she began to submit novels for publication, but it took 23 years for her to get published. Persistence paid off, however, because Tamar is now the author of two ongoing mystery series. One is set in Pennsylvania and features Magdalena Yoder, an Amish-Mennonite sleuth who runs a bed and breakfast in the mythical town of Hernia. The other is set in the Carolinas and centers around the adventures of Abigail Timberlake, the proud owner of a Charlotte (and later Charleston) antique store, the Den of Antiquity. Tamar now calls Charlotte, NC home. She lives with her husband, plus a Basenji dog, a Bengal cat, and an orange tabby rescue cat.
