    1. If you love enjoyable cozies to read, this one's right for you. It came with Amish-Mennonite recipes too for your own pleasure too. In the 15th installment, Magdalena's got a full plate with planning her wedding to Gabe, and as mayor of Hernia. There's been a couple of new changes in Hernia, when she's on a case of another murder in her inn and there's more than one suspect out there. We're welcomed into her Mennonite world and her feelings of marrying Gabe, who's Jewish, and how there's a coupl [...]


    2. It's funny--I'm not crazy about Myers' other mystery [Den of Antiquity] series, but with the Pennsylvania Dutch series, she can do no wrong. I never get tired of Magdalena's smart mouth or Freni's equally funny view of the world. I could do without the Ida charactor, and Madalena's pseudo daughter [her ex-Babester's actual daughter] charactor doesn't really come off like any teenage girl I've ever known. Up until now I only knew I liked curry-based sauces; now I know how they're made. Most of th [...]


    3. Hernia, PA's most eligible bachelor is getting married in three days when he dies of a heart attack another woman's bed. An autopsy reveals it was murder and innkeeper, Mennonite and part time detective Magdalena Yoder investigates and finds out that Cornelius Weaver had a lot of lovers which makes for a lot of suspects! I love the "Pennsylvania Dutch Mystery" cozy series. Magdalena is a "hoot" (a reference for those who have read the series) and there's a great and funny supporting cast. I'm lo [...]



    4. Love all of Tamar's storiesAlways an interesting mystery with familiar characters and a sassy main character. Ms. Myers weave a wonderful page-turning story every time.


    5. Even though he's engaged to Priscilla Livengood, Cornelius Weaver has quite a way with women. In fact, when he dies after eating poisoned curry there are a number of suspects, all women who at one time or another had an affair with Cornelius. Police Chief Olivia Hornsby-Anderson can't investigate the case because she was with Cornelius when he died so she asks Magdalena Yoder to investigate. Mags agrees and soon finds out that Cornelius was a busy man - besides Priscilla and Olivia he was having [...]


    6. This is the title that first grabbed my attention and sparked my interest in the series - loving a good play on words as I do. Now, after reading the first 14 in the series, I've finally read this one!"Hell Hath No Curry" ranks as one of my favorites in the series. There were moments of laugh-out-loud humor (especially - SPOILER - the "singing rat" at the Sausage Barn). There was still adolescent humor that I didn't find all that funny, though.I have enjoyed Magdalena more as she has gained some [...]


    7. With a winning blend of humor, mystery, and recipes, national bestselling author Tamar Myers has created a uniquely flavorful series. In her latest, Mennonite innkeeper Magdalena Yoder finds that a jam- or perhaps chutney- of small town love and cheating can lead to one vindictive vindalooThree days before he's due to tie the knot with Priscilla Livingood, eligible bachelor Cornelius Weaver suffers a massive heart attack--in another woman's bed. The scandal is about as good as television for the [...]


    8. Tamar Myers should have stopped the series at 14. Without a certain major character from the first 14 books, there is no real conflict. And what is a story without conflict?Also, Meyers seems to be just phoning this in. She and her narrator protagonist get downright nasty as opposed to funny or even sarcastic. In the book's front matter, there is a rude note from Myers asking that fans please stop sending her title suggestions because "they're really not very funny." And Hell Hath No Curry is fu [...]


    9. Hell might hath no curry but I've got no thyme to continue this story. The constant attempts at witticism and sarcasm and too numerous mentions of Magdalena's beauty wore thin by page 132. Don't get me wrong, I like wit and sarcasm but too much of a good thing. . . I selected this book due to the title, erroneously assuming it had much to do with the Pennsylvania Dutch people and lifestyle with recipes thrown in. What I got was the impression the Amish and Mennonite are morally depraved - someth [...]


    10. There were a few recipes scattered throughout the book but it didn't seem to go along well the story. When the main character Magdalena talks, she seem to go off topic. It is her personality and amplifies it but gets irritating as it seems like a filler. I wanted to know how she solved the mystery so I kept on reading and skipped a lot of her chatter.


    11. At first, I enjoyed the humourous turn of phrase used by the main character, Mennonite Magdalena Yoder, but it did begin to wear thin by the end of the book. Still, it's a good story even if I did feel a bit like I came into the middle of a conversation because so much about the characters seems to be required.


    12. I really, really wanted to like this bookbut I didn't. It seemed to me that the author was focused more on delivering "one-liners" than on a good cozy mystery plot. I do enjoy humor, but this, in my opinion, went 'way over the top. I had purchased several other books in the series and stockpiled them to read later, but I think I'll be selling them on ebay. Oh, well


    13. Too hard to read - I got do tired of the main characters self crap and whining and wailing. The only reason I kept reading it was because I kept hoping it would pick up. In the end, it was like pulling teeth for me.


    14. Tamar Myers just makes me laugh. It's so corny, but it's so fun. And the recipes are always intriguing. I might give it 3.5 stars just because this IS book #15 and it's kind of getting old, but hey.


    15. It seems with every Magdelena novel, she gets sillier and the dialogue gets more ridiculous. The series is beginning to seem slightly "off". It took me forever to finish this book (and it wasn't that many pages) as I just couldn't get into it or stay interested in it.


    16. It's as if she's re-approaching the series with a critical eye, remaining faithful to every detail which has come before, while tweaking and reshaping. I wholeheartedly approve. Throw-away silliness though it always shall be, it's becoming better, more enjoyable silliness.


    17. I really enjoy this series. I can't help but think if I was the babester I would be so gone! I like that she is accepting herself as attractive but it was a bit of overkill. This is my favorite series of the genre and I like each one better then the last.


    18. Magdalena finds out she's beautiful! Bizarre, but still funny after umpteen books. The mysteries are getting odd though.





    19. Nauseating. I find this protagonist to be the anti-thesis of everything I admire in a sleuth. She is mentally clumsy, small-minded, and ridiculously unaware.


    20. An enjoyable read. Made me laugh out loud a few times. Much better than the last two in this series that I read.





    21. Not as quick paced as I'd like. Interesting characters. Kept me guessing as to who done it. I will read another book from this series.



    22. Very cute. It's an easy read(for me at least) the main character is self deprecating in an endearing way. Would recommend if you like crime dramas set in certain areas.
