(From the publisher):
Hollywood comes to picturesque Amish country when a film crew does 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 the people — and she knows the disagreeable ingredients that can stir up a murderer!
