by Tamar MyersBook 13 in the Pennsylvania Dutch mysteries. Meet Magdalena Yoder. She's a sarcastic, hot cocoa loving, Mennonite and owner of the Penn Dutch Inn in Hernia, Pennsylvania . This book jumps right into the mystery from the very first sentence. At the annual chili cook off, Reverend Schrock blesses the food seconds before meeting his demise and falling face first into his steaming bowl. Was it simply his heart or was he murdered by a fellow parishioner? Magdalena quickly finds herself drawn into the investigation when the Reverend's widow, Lodema, suggest her husband's chili included peanuts - something everyone knew the beloved Reverend was highly allergic too! Follow along as Magdalena uncovers shocking secrets the good Reverend was trying to hide and even learns about a nemesis who might just be family. I haven't read this series since 2007. This is a very, light, cozy mystery. It contains more humor than it does a good thick mystery. Although, I was quite surprised by who the culprit turned out to be in the end. I like the main character and her uncensored, naive remarks. The book definitely had gaps in the storyline, but overall it was entertaining and fun to catch up with the unique cast of characters.
