(From the publisher):
Ever since her brand-new husband flew the coop, Magdalena Yoder, owner of the quaint PennDutch Inn, has had time to kill. And now the local Amish community really has a murder in its midst: an Asian tourist found strangled and run over by a horse and buggy. It isn’t a crime police chief Melvin Stolzfus can easily handle; after all, he was once kicked in the head by a bull he was trying to milk. But he’s smart enough to deputize Magdalena.
Soon Magdalena is off visiting the neatly kept farms of the Plain People in search of the truth. Although not an outsider, she’s about as welcome as a fox in a henhouse. Something dangerous is being concealed behind their dour faces and determination to protect their own. And for Magdalena, finding a killer may just put her between the rock of faith and a hard place called justice...
