Magdalena Yoder is out from behind the counter of the
PennDutch Inn, and into hot milkâ€”uh water. Yost Yoder, her
second cousin twice removed, has been found naked, floating
in a tank of unpasteurized milk, and Magdalena knows itâ€™s
murder. Amish men just donâ€™t go swimming in milk in the
middle of February.
Loading up the car with her free-spirited sister and her
fickle cook, she heads to Farmersburg, Ohio, for the
funeralâ€¦and gallons of trouble. She learns not a week
earlier another Amish man met his untimely death.
Something is truly rotten in Farmersburg, and it smells a
lot like cheese. When a war between powerful cheese makers
erupts, Magdalena uncovers the startling truth about whatâ€™s
churning in this once peaceful town.
