TAMAR MYERS :

Pennsylvania Dutch Mysteries

(With Recipes)

I've just finished reading ASSAULT and PEPPER,the latest Tamar Myers ouvre. If you've ever read anything by Ms Myers,you'll understand why I'm still laughing.

Set in the Mennonite/Amish town of Hernia,Pennsylvania,the Pennsylvania Dutch mysteries feature the incomparable Magdalena Yodor,proprietor of the Penn Dutch Inn (where well-heeled guests pay extra for the privilege of doing household and farm chores.It's called "immersion".)

In between the chapters of these rollicking murder mysteries,one will find apparently authentic Pennsylvania Dutch recipes-usually inserted with some passing reference to the previous chapter.

Rather than describe the plot-which needs to be read from line one to be fully appreciated,I will list a menu of Tamar Myers' titles. (For best results,read the books in order.)

BON APPETIT !!

 
A day-to-day account of the war on terror,geopolitics,local politics,and any other damn thing that comes to mind.
