Description
An Amish Bed and Breakfast Mystery with Recipes – PennDutch Mysteries #5
"Bubbling over with mirth and mystery." –Dorothy Cannell
"A delicious treat." –Carolyn G. Hart
Even though new husband, Aaron (Pooky Bear!), is away, Magdalena Yoder, proprietor of the prosperous Penn-Dutch Inn, is still in a honeymoon haze...until she's pulled in by Police Chief Stolzfus (her nemesis!) to help investigate the sad demise of an Asian tourist – run over by a horse and buggy!
But things really start to sizzle when it's revealed that the victim was strangled first. And when a young Amish lad is shot, Magdalena must really use her noodle, lest she foul up her first officially deputized investigation. Added to that stress is shocking news from her Pooky Bear that shakes her world.
But trust Magdalena to leap from wok to frying pan without a single scorch!

      • bioText: 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.
