If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen - and head to the bicentennial barbeque in Hernia, Pennsylvania. There's great outdoor cooking, a tractor pull, a greased pig chase, and this year's highlight - the unearthing of the centennial time capsule, rumored to contain the key to a fortune. But when the onlookers gather, they find the capsule missing and Magdalena Yoder's guest, Buzzy Porter, dead.

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.
