Too Many Crooks Spoil the Broth

Too Many Crooks Spoil the Broth - Tamar Myers It has been quite a while since I've read this author and this particular series, so I decided that I should try it again. I am so glad I did. I had forgotten what a fun read these books are., I particularly love the irreverent humor and how the author even had the audacity to use herself as an unseen character - and to make fun of her!

The story is, in my opinion, a little more complicated than it seems to be on the surface. There are lots of red herrings, but the truth is quite subtly woven into the fabric of the story.

Many readers may not enjoy the character of Magdalena Yoder, who owns the Mennonite inn. Her thought process is more like a big city shark than a simple country inn owner...but I found her to be a breath of fresh air.

The secondary and tertiary characters are great, although some of them will become annoying later on in the series when their characters don't grown and mellow.

First person story telling will make many readers quite happy.

Happy Reading!
