From the national bestselling author of Butter Safe Than Sorry Magdalena Yoder gets caught up in a case of hotcake homicide... During the annual church breakfast, Minerva J. Jay slumps over dead after ingesting stacks and stacks of pancakes. Police Chief Ackerman wonders if the serving of fatal flapjacks is a case of assault and batter. He turns to Magdalena for help, but first she has to make a special delivery of her own...
About the Author
Tamar Myers, who is of Amish background, is the author of several Pennsylvania Dutch mysteries, including Custard's Last Stand, The Hand that Rocks the Ladle, Between a Wok and a Hard Place, Too Many Crooks Spoil the Broth, and The Crepes of Wrath. Also the author of the Den of Antiquity series, she lives in South Carolina with her husband.
In Myers's 17th Pennsylvania Dutch mystery (after 2008's As the World Churns), Magdalena Yoder, who's eight and a half months pregnant, must try to solve the murder of gluttonous Minerva J. Jay, who drops dead after wolfing down "twenty-six pancakes at the Beechy Grove Mennonite Brotherhood all-you-can-eat fund-raising breakfast." Meanwhile, Magdalena gives birth to "Little Jacob" squatting on the floor of the local market, contends with her bizarre sister and overbearing Jewish mother-in-law, and comments not always wittily on Jewish, Mennonite and other religious practices. Late in the story, the focus returns to who poisoned Minerva's pancakes. A contrived climax and a surfeit of smart-ass humor make this strictly for series fans. (Feb.)
