It's an interesting twist on the traditional cozy mystery, with the Pennsylvania Dutch background. I like the idea of recipes, and indeed found a couple I would like to try. There was a bit too much emphasis on sin and judgment for my taste, with the heroine being a middle aged virgin spinster, but it looks like there may be some romance in her future. I thought the characterization of the murderer was off somehow, that in the end said murderer behaved in a stereotypically repugnant way that had nothing to do with the motive behind the crime. That's as much as I can say without giving it away. However, it was entertaining enough that I will read the second one.
