At Magdalena Yoder’s PennDutch Inn, the meals are drop- dead delicious.

When imprisoned con man Clarence Webber meets his Maker after sampling a bowl of gruel laced with arsenic, it’s cruel and unusual punishment indeed. And since Magdalena provided the last supper, she’s convinced that one of Clarence’s many visitors must have added the sinister secret ingredient. With the reputation of her establishment at stake, Magdalena puts on her detective bonnet, determined to discover who in Hernia poisoned the porridge.

But with a quartet of quirky female suspects who all claim to be the victim’s widow, a bumbling sheriff with political aspirations, and a young hellion with a ton of attitude who insists she is Magdalena’s daughter, this is one grueling mystery the intrepid innkeeper may be sorry she ever tried to solve….

With more than a half dozen tasty recipes!
