  • 3.5 starsMagdalena Yoder is a wealthy Mennonite woman who owns the PennDutch Inn in Hernia, Pennsylvania and solves mysteries in her spare time In this addition to the humorous series Magdalena is newly married to handsome, Jewish heart surgeon Gabriel Rosen This grates on Gabe s mother, Ida, who would like nothing better than to take her precious Gabeleh back to Brooklyn Mama Ida keeps up a running litany of Yiddish tinged complaints and insults about Magdalena, who s quick to return the favor [...]


  • Reading this book annoyed me and I probably won t read anything else by the author There was no plot There was very little character development Ninety five percent of the book consisted of the main character making puns, quips, and plays on words I felt like slapping her upside the head The back jokes behind these quips had little to do with the limited storyline of the book Very boring, though I did manage to finish reading it Interspersed in the book were recipes for homemade ice cream The re [...]


  • This isn t really a story, the plot is only a vehicle for the author to continually make jokes So I found it funny at first but it quickly got boring 259 pages of one liners does get old fast Also, I thought that she didn t quite have her eastern European Jew accent down properly Besides the accent being very exaggerated, I have never heard an EEJ say a frequent yah at the end of their sentences Nu Yes Yah No And for some reason she has the teenager saying ain t when no one else in the book says [...]


  • I found myself laughing out loud several times while reading this one Definitely light there were a few inside jokes , however, that I might have missed without reading the earlier books in the series It felt as though the author finally figured out exactly who Magdalena is and that would be perhaps be one of the nuttiest in the bunch.


  • Mennonite innkeeper Magdalena Yoder is thrilled that a cow competition has come to Hernia her inn is booked solid She s not so thrilled that her ex brother in law, murderer Melvin Stoltzfus, has escaped from prison When her good friend Doc Shafor is hit over the head and badly injured, she s sure Melvin is to blame and wants to find him fast She also has other mysteries to solve like the disappearance of her beloved husband Gabe and her daughter Allison She s also been having fainting spells and [...]


  • Let s say it right at the start I had not touched a Tamar Myers novel in almost 2 years I thought that the series had gone stale, that the best scenarios and humorous bits were ones that had been reprised from earlier novels in the series, and that there was little hope that things would improve Having recently completed As the World Churns , the 16th book in the Magdalena Yoder Penn Dutch Inn series, I will tip my hat to the author and will happily retract the last of the assertions from the fi [...]


  • So, I asked the girl working at Borders for a recommendation for a fun mystery series I told her I liked the Stephanie Plum novels and the Goldilocks catering novels She handed me this and said it was funny and along the same vein as the others previously mentioned Holy Cow What a piece of boring garbage The main character in this book is so obnoxious I just couldn t get past it After suffering for about 3 4 s of this book I finally skipped to the end to see who did it so I could throw this book [...]


  • This silly, funny series is the only one I can read completely randomly as I find them I love the titles, but sometimes the dialogue begins to grate on me But I keep reading them The whole concept of a Mennonite, married to a Jewish Doctor is pretty funny I also like when she explains the differences between the Amish and Mennonites The plot of this one is thinner than some of the others, but the discussion of the pole dancer is hilarious She just can t figure out why anyone would lie about bein [...]


  • Innkeeper Magdalena Yoder has just married handsome doctor Gabe Rosen, but she has in law trouble on several fronts Not only his Gabe s mother determined to be part of the marriage, if she can t break it up entirely, but Magdalena s evil brother in law has escaped from prison, and who knows what he may be up to Then there are the guests at the inn, who have come to participate in a Holstein contest Supposed to be funny.


  • One star doesn t really express my feeling about this book I was looking for something light and funny but this is simply a collection of stand up one liners strung together I got through maybe a dozen pages before getting so annoyed that I had to quit A bit of wit spread throughout the plot is great This has too much of one and too little of the other.


  • As the World Churns by Tamar Myers is part of a series entitled A Pennsylvania Dutch Mystery The main character, Magdalena, is a Mennonite who solves mysteries in her small town of Hernia Since I started reading this series midstream, some of the references to people and previous activities don t make much sense, but if you read the series in order I m sure they would Most of the characters seem one dimensional and much of the dialogue is quips and pithy sayings which became annoying after a whi [...]


  • I checked this book out of my local library, curious if the story was as clever as the title The answer is no.I didn t like Magdalena She s egomaniacal and irritating and I found the idea that people would consider her rambling a hoot totally implausible I don t consider myself terribly religious but I don t make as many references to the backseat bossa nova or mattress mambo or kitchen conga as the Mennonite woman And does everyone in the community desire her I checked out two of these books an [...]


  • It s the first annual Hernia Holstein Competition and Magdalena s inn is full with people and cows in the barn When someone clobbers Hernia s veterinarian, the town s only police officer asks for Magdalena s help in finding who assaulted Doc Shafor All this and Magdalena is supposed to be on her honeymoon Funny as usual and a great heroine in Magdalena, this story will leave you with quite a cliffhanger that has me eager for Book 17


  • I really liked this book.Magdalena Yoder may finally be married to big time Manhattan doctor Gabriel Rosen, but she s still a small town girl at heart, and thrilled to be the emcee for the first annual Hernia Holstein Competition As a bonus, the PennDutch and its barn are booked solid But then someone clobbers the contest s originator, Doc Shafor, while he s admiring the cows, and both Gabe and his daughter Alison go missing With the help of her best friend and the hindrance of her mother in law [...]




  • Magdalena has finally married the man of her dreams As mayor, she is asked to emcee the first annual Hernia Holstein competition Then Magdalena s long time friend, Doc Shafor is knocked unconscious and her husband Gabe and their adopted daughter Alison go missing With the help of her best friend, Agnes, Magdalena is determined to find her family.


  • Let s say it right at the start I had not touched a Tamar Myers novel in almost 2 years I thought that the series had gone stale, that the best scenarios and humorous bits were ones that had been reprised from earlier novels in the series, and that there was little hope that things would improve Having recently completed As the World Churns , the 16th book in the Magdalena Yoder Penn Dutch Inn series, I will tip my hat to the author and will happily retract the last of the assertions from the fi [...]


  • It s been a little over two years, since I ve read a Tamar Myers Penn Dutch Inn book It s good to go back to a great culinary cozy to enjoy with yummy recipes Out of nineteen books in the series, this is the 16th one, when I hope to read Hell Hath No Curry 15, and the Crepes of Wrath, 9, hopefully, later this year, although I m reading it out of order In this installment, Magdalena is hosting a Hollstein cow competition at her inn, when someone clobbers Doc Shafor It s up to Magdalena, who faint [...]


  • This is book 16 in the Pennsylvania Dutch Mystery series and the first one I ve read For the most part it can be read as a stand alone, I didn t feel that I was missing any info that would have made the book better The books has a few ice cream recipes in it which seemed strange to me because I thought the recipes in culinary mysteries were somehow related to the story, but they sounded yummy and I can t wait to try some of them As for the story, it was a good enough to keep me reading but I soo [...]


  • I gave it four because I do really like the characters Mrs Myers makes them entirely lovable or in the case of a certain mother in law, entirely irritating I gave it five because to catch all of the laughter one would have to read it again.Magdalena is an exceptionally verbose and charmingly naive inn keeper that makes for a hilarious read I love a good laugh and this book delivers I wholeheartedly recommend this book and all the rest of the Pennsylvania Dutch Mysteries I was on one of my regula [...]


  • I have mixed feelings about this book I had a hard time following the basic plot because the book was so silly On the other hand, to be perfectly fair, this is the 16th book in Tamar Myers s Pennsylvania Dutch Mystery series I think I probably should at least read a couple of the early books in this series in order to get a proper feel for Myers s style of writing The basic plot is good, and Myers s writing style is certainly different.


  • I have enjoyed this series for quite a while It is predictable but still funny Magdalena Yoder, the Mennonite innkeeper, has married her Jewish doctor Unfortunately, her homicidal and stupid brother in law has escaped prison Magdelena is getting ready to host a Holstein competition when her top jodge is seriously injured in an attack Magdalena does her best to figure out who hurt doc, who is cheating in the contest and why she feels weird.


  • Huge fan of Myers clever titles, but I feel very meh about this It had some really funny parts, but I missed having any sort of connection with any of the characters It was like one of those lifetime movies you only watch because you re stuck on the sofa with a cold and can t reach the remote You watch it because it s there, but you don t really care about the characters or what happens It wasn t bad, but I don t really feel like it was worth my time, either.


  • This was a fun story to read The comments about religion were amusing at time but also worth some thought The book included lots of yummy looking recipes for ice cream This is the first of the series I have read I will look for to read as relief from some of the heavy books I sometimes read For instance, I just finished a book on the Bataan Death March and the Rwandan genocide I needed something to cheer me up.


  • This series has jumped the shark for me With Mags getting knocked up it took a turn for the worse Also, unlike earlier books in this series, it had no real coherent plot I find some of the jokes laugh out loud funny, no doubt, but without a decent plotline mystery, it s just a waste of time Disappointed.


  • Tamar Myers is one of my go to authors when I want to relax and laugh at the same time, and the recipes in this one involve ice cream I like all her series books, but the Pennsylvania Dutch mysteries are my favorites Maybe because that s the one I just read Magdalena Yoder is as eccentric as they come, with out of the gate humor, but lovable in her own way.


  • 2.5 A pretty disappointing follower in just about every respect to the promising prior outing Except for the recipes simplistic versions though they may be, they re actually legit and have almost certainly given pleasure than the story has.


  • Myers has to be a complete nutjob of a person to come up with these storylines and zingers in the books she hase gets a bit predictable in this book though, but hey you cant make them perfect every time still hugely enjoyable and a real vacation for your tired brainwaves
