Pennsylvania-Dutch Mystery #2. With recipes.

"Hollywood comes to picturesque Amish country when a film crew goes on location at Magdalena Yoder's quaint PennDutch Inn. But after the excitement of an "open casting" has even the staid Amish battling for bit parts, the filming hits a snag - a body in Magdalena's barn impaled to a post with a pitchfork.

The dead man is the film's assistant director, and the not-too-swift local sheriff definitely rules out suicide. The number one suspect, he decides, is Magdalena. Shocked to find her reputation at stake, Magdalena is in a scramble to track down the real killer. What a stew to be in - especially since her only clue is a grocery list headed by "parsley". It's not much to go on, but Magdalena has a nose for sniffing out the truth. She knows the lay of the land, the character of people - and she knows the disagreeable ingredients that can stir up a murderer." (from the back cover)

Signet paperback 1996, 264 pages. First edition 1995.

Light, humourous and entertaining. Funnily pictured encounters between the Amish and the Hollywood values and morals. I didn't remember much about the first part of the series to start with, but was soon reminded of the quaint inn and its personable hostess.
