The Death of Pie
by Tamar Myers

When a bestselling novelist falls face-down dead into Magdalena Yoder’s prize-winning apple pie during the village of Hernia’s 110th Annual Festival of Pies, there is no shortage of suspects in the subsequent murder investigation

A former guest at Magdalena’s PennDutch Inn, the author had made many enemies on publication of her subsequent tell-all book, exposing the faults and foibles of members of the local Amish/Mennonite community, and mocking their way of life. But who was enraged enough to want to poison the acid-tongued writer?

Hopelessly out of his depth, Hernia’s inexperienced young Chief of Police requests Magdalena’s help in uncovering the answer. As she sets about questioning her friends and neighbours, Magdalena discovers that more than one villager has a secret to hide.


Another great volume in the Magdalena Yoder Pennsylvania Dutch Series. I have read every book in the series and they are always a hoot!

Tamar Myers is one of my favourite cozy authors. Lots of fun, a great read with bonus recipes

L. Sprague, Librarian

Filled with the author's trademark double entendres and bawdy humor, this tale of deceit, revenge, and murder is sure to please fans of willful, wordy, and winsome Magdalena

Publishers Weekly

Quirky characters, including the ghost of Grandma Yoder, abound in this mystery in which the acerbic, opinionated Magdalena's first-person account drives this at-time laugh-out-loud cozy
