Blackwell North Amer
In her third uproarious mysterious, Tamar Myers takes her heroine, fortysomething Mennonite Magdalena Yoder, out from behind the counter of her quaint PennDutch Inn, and into hot milk - uh, water - when news of a shocking murder reaches her ears. Yost Yoder has been found naked, floating in a tank of unpasteurized milk, and Magdalena knows at once it's murder. Amish men just don't go swimming in milk in the middle of February.
Since Yost was her second cousin twice removed, Magdalena feels obligated to travel to Farmersburg, Ohio, for the funeral, leaving behind the man of her dreams, local farmer Aaron Miller.
Once in Farmersburg, Magdalena picks up a scent of crime and conspiracy, as she learns that not a week earlier another Amish man met his untimely death, plunging from atop a silo. Something is truly rotten in Farmersburg...and it smells a lot like cheese. A war between powerful cheesemakers has erupted, disrupting the local townsfolk's slice of life.
Magdalena, having proved herself a worthy sleuth before, takes it upon herself to solve the crimes. By battling countless relatives, meddling policemen, and her own sister's flights of fancy, Magdalena uncovers a startling truth about what's churning in this once peaceful town. It's enough to get anyone killed. Including Magdalena.
