Publisher's Summary

Readers will delight in this laugh-out-loud cozy mystery debut - and relish the country cooking recipes included.
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!).
When one of her more reclusive guests takes a tumble down the PennDutch's picturesquely steep staircase and breaks his neck, the timing couldn't be worse. It's the start of hunting season - and her inn is packed to capacity!
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!

A cozy little mystery ...

Any additional comments?

This was a nice little mystery. Magdalena Yoder is the owner a small inn in the heart of Amish country. She offers her guest 3 meals a day and the option to have an Amish Experience by cleaning up their rooms themselves. Its the start of deer hunting season and with an inn full of guests including a congressman, protesters against hunting and Magdalena's sister Susannah stirring up trouble, Magdalena is in for a busy week.

I thought that the mystery was solid and a good start to this series. I have always enjoyed Ms. Miller's work and look forward to more books in this series.

I would recommend this book to those who enjoy mysteries. I would listen to this again.

good first story

What made the experience of listening to Too Many Crooks Spoil the Broth the most enjoyable?

It was fun to list to, it had some very funny spot. The story was good it was a little hard to keep track of everyone. It's a good story to listen to, and I am looking for to the next one to be release on audio.

Would you be willing to try another book from Tamar Myers? Why or why not?


What does Caroline Miller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Life, I think this would have been hard for me to read but she gave each person their on voice.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes I got this done in one day.
