Magdalena Yoder, Amish-Mennonite proprietor of the Pennsylvania Dutch Inn, travels to Farmersburg, Ohio for the funeral of her second cousin (twice removed) who had the unfortunate luck of drowning in a vat of milk - and, as Magdalena knows, Amish men just don't go swimming in milk in the middle of February. Something's definitely rotten in Farmersburg.
When another relative is found belly up, Magdalena puts her (impressive, but attractive nonetheless, thank you very much) nose to the scent and discovers that a vicious cheese rivalry may be the cause of all this mayhem!
In between keeping tabs on her saucy sister, Susannah, avoiding her sardine-loving host and spending time with her new boyfriend, Aaron Miller (a.k.a. Pooky Bear), Magdalena must find the killer - before more Yoders bite the dust!

"Myers' story is as sweet as a piece of brown-sugar pie (recipe included)... Magdalena is so likeable!" (Booklist)
This is one of my favorites, I have the first 3 of this series and really enjoy the story line and the lively colorful characters.
There was a plot and each turn of the page contained more laughs, quirky incites, and anticipation.
When Magdelin was stuck in the barn in the blizzard with the Danny and all the booze, or maybe when they are posing as the Amish folk singing group.
Laugh and laugh.
Yes, I would listen to the book again at a later date.
The series reminds me of the Mrs. Polifax books.
The main character, Magdalena.
I hope to see more of the series on Audible.com
I enjoyed the comical insight into the Amish way of life.
Caroline Miller was absolutely a wonderful narrator for this book.
