But that tends to be a small thing when being entertained so with another winner from Ms. Myers.
All that aside, I do still enjoy these books, wailing and alliteration and repetition be darned, but would definitely find them more enjoyable if these glaring incongruities and omissions didn't nag at me while I read. I still have a number of books to read in this series, but I'm thinking I should read other, non-related books between each of these so that the errors don't stand out so starkly!
In this episode, millionaire Colonel George Custard comes to the PennDutch Inn in his limo, accompanied by two servants. The bad news is, he has plans to build a huge hotel that will destroy small-town Hernia's ambiance. The good news is, he's soon murdered, and Magdalena leads the investigation. She *has* to, doesn't she? The local law officials -- her dim-witted brother-in-law and his Tammy-Fay-Mimi-Bobeck-clone sidekick -- are clueless and useless. And they're just two of the many unique characters that pepper this community.
I wouldn't want to meet Magdalena Yoder in person. (If any of us did, we'd miss out on all the wonderful thoughts zipping around in her noggin.) I might want to be a small mouse instead and watch her from a distance ... though I'd surely be in trouble if she spied me and raised a size-eleven Brogan to my body.
Another fun addition to a entertaining series.
