    This debut mystery introduces Magdalena Yoder, prim, proper, and persnickety proprietor of the PennDutch Inn, where guests luxuriate in the true "Amish experience," (read: doing Magdalena's chores and paying top dollar for the opportunity!).

    When one of her more reclusive guests takes a tumble down the PennDutch's picturesquely steep staircase and breaks his neck, the timing couldn't be worse. It's the start of hunting season - and her inn is packed to capacity!

    What made the experience of listening to Too Many Crooks Spoil the Broth the most enjoyable?

    It was fun to list to, it had some very funny spot. The story was good it was a little hard to keep track of everyone. It's a good story to listen to, and I am looking for to the next one to be release on audio.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tamar Myers? Why or why not?

    Yes


    What does Caroline Miller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Life, I think this would have been hard for me to read but she gave each person their on voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes I got this done in one day.

    Syd never considered the possibility of turning her passion for spinning and knitting into something more than a hobby, but when the unique composition of her wool draws attention, a door is opened - the first among many. Yet even as she ventures out of her comfort zone, Syd finds herself stepping into the embrace of a community rich with love, laughter, friendship...and secrets. And as long-hidden truths are revealed, Syd faces a choice: spin a safety net - or spin decidedly forward and never look back...

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not necessarily. The story was good but it had a predictable story line. However the description of they island and the smell of the island was great. Not bad but not great.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    When they had the blue moon ceremony. The least when she got mad at the party.


    What does Kate Udall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Emotions


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No

    Even though running Crewel World keeps Betsy plenty busy, a little extra cash on the side doesn't hurt. So when the local senior complex, Watered Silk, asks her to teach a class on the tricky punch needle technique, Betsy jumps at the opportunity to win over some new customers.

    The person who was reading this was so wrong it became a distraction and hard to follow the story to the point that I just couldn't go on any more.

    As long as Betsy is not reading it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Betsy Bronson?

    Susan B was reading again.

    Knitting and life. They're both about beginnings - and endings. That's why it makes sense for Lydia Goetz, owner of A Good Yarn on Seattle's Blossom Street, to offer a class called Knit to Quit. It's for people who want to quit something - or someone! - and start a new phase of their lives.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The story was good but I hated the www adds at the beginning of every chapter. This had been very distracting to the story. Over all its was a good story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The end had been very satisfying.


    Which character – as performed by Delilah – was your favorite?

    Casey


    Could you see Summer on Blossom Street being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes it would be a good series. I don't know who could do it.
