Summary, etc.:
The first three titles in the PennDutch Amish Bed & Breakfast Mystery Series in a box set! TOO MANY CROOKS SPOIL THE BROTH 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!). What at first seems to be a horrible accident (and insurance nightmare for Magdalena!) could turn out to be a much more sinister event; and when another mishap occurs, Magdalena is certain there is a killer in her group - and it's up to her to sniff out the culprit...before the world's most incompetent town sheriff throws her in jail! Readers will delight in this laugh-out-loud cozy mystery debut - and relish the country cooking recipes included. PARSLEY, SAGE, ROSEMARY AND CRIME Magdalena Yoder, chaste and abstemious proprietor of the Pennsylvania Dutch Inn, agrees to let a Hollywood crew film at the inn - for an exorbitant price, of course. But when the assistant director is found pinned to a barn post with a farming tool, dimwitted local police chief, Marvin Stoltzfus fingers Magdalena as his prime suspect. Now it's time for Magdalena to use her extraordinary Amish sleuthing skills to reveal the real killer - before another Hollywood hellion goes belly up and turns Magdalena's charming PennDutch Inn into a grisly horror flick! NO USE DYING OVER SPILLED MILK 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!
