The copy of the book I received goes fine till page 202. Instead of going to page 203 it jumps back to page 27 and repeats from there through page 58, then jumps to page 235. Since the story ends on page 260 there's obviously a chunk of key information missing!

This series is murder mysteries so there are allusions to violence and sexual content but nothing explicit or graphic. The books are easy reads, not great literature but a nice diversion from every day life.
The 7th Penn Dutch mystery by Tamar Myers, and once again I loved every page. The plot is thicker than some of the others, when Nazi war criminals are sought in Hernia. Magdalena is perhaps at her best, as well as Freni. When you see both of their names on the same page, you know you're in for a treat. A couple neat, new characters come into play (hopefully they'll stay). This book has one of the most suspenseful climaxes in the series. Ms. Myers knows her characters so well, they probably speak for themselves when they say, "Ach! Buy the book why don't you?"
good as always.
Great book, just loved it! Tamar Myers has a great sense of humor and reading her books relaxes me totally. If you feel like snugling up on your couch with a cup of tea or coffee and a good book, this is the way to do it! Enjoy!!!
Before I could tell my husband I had ordered some more books, this book arrived! I am very pleased with the seller and the author. Keep up the good work.
"Play It Again, Spam" by Tamar Myers

Have you ever wondered how life goes on inside an Amish community? Well then, welcome to the wonderful Amish world of Magdalena Yoder. The owner and manager of the PennDutch Inn located in Hernia, Pennsylvania. The original 100 year old homestead was destroyed during an horrific tornado and now a rebuilt B&B was ready to open for business.

The phone started ringing and Miss Yoder started taking reservations. In no time at all the PennDutch Inn was booked. The diversity of guests were kept in check by Magdalena...or so she thought. And then a guest can not be found anywhere. The search begins and our reading of this marvelous story brings us that much closer to the inside workings of the Amish.

This book was an eye opener for me into the Amish practices and beliefs. It was also a new beginning for me in a fun series that I intend to continue. If you are searching for a new series with fun as its middle name...look no further. You have arrived. Enjoy!
This series had so much potential. I did enjoy the first couple of books--but the repetition has become so boring. If I am remembering correctly in one of the earlier titles, it was mentioned that Magdalena quit wearing her "prayer cap" after her parents death. Now all of a sudden she is described as wearing it again?! Come on--does the author think that her readers don't pay attention to details? While reading this one I found myself thinking that I really could not believe that a publisher would actually be interested in publishing something of this caliber. The WW2 and Nazi references were totally tripe and actually unbelievable. There were so many characters (B & B guests) that it was hard for me to keep them straight. I usually finish what I start but am seriously not considering finishing this series. There was ONE interesting point in this rubbish and it was a possible new romantic interest for Magdalena. And I certainly agree with some of the other reviewers who do not like Magdalena. I feel the same way. What is there to like about her anyway?!
Magdalena has fallen on hard times since her B&B was virtually destroyed by a tornado. After rebuilding, she finds that her PennDutch Inn is not as popular as it once was. Added to this, her sister Susannah is getting ready to wed Magdalena's sworn enemy, Melvin, Hernia's chief of police. After being married to a bigamist herself, Magdalena doesn't have much faith in the male of the species. Suddenly her Inn is filled to overflowing with some WWII veterans who are having a reunion. Rounding out her group of guests are a retired history professor and his wife, a former concert pianist. This time there are no dead bodies, but people who are seemingly unrelated begin to disappear. A new thread is introduced to the story when an elderly woman from Hernia also disappears. Magdalena does her usual sleuthing until she figures out who is behind all of this mischief. This is another fun "cozy" from Tamar Meyers.
