    One thought on “Gruel and Unusual Punishment

    1. Sharyn

      I am still reading these out of order, but it doesn't seem to bother me as much as other book series. I find them laugh out loud funny, and as these are my "car" books I carry to read in line etc. I get some pretty weird looks as I laugh out loud in places. They are just so silly, as in when Magdelina thnks she ios talking to the Lord, or she does something un Mennonite and apologizes. This book had a good mystery, thoug all the recipes startyed with grits, so no chance I'll be cooking those. Th [...]

      I didn't fully realize what this book was before I started it. Once I figured that out, I didn't expect to like it. However, the characters grew on me, and there were several laugh out loud moments. I could do with less silly, contrived strings of alliteration, though. If you enjoy a cozy mystery, this is worth a read.

    3. June Ahern

      My first read of Tamar Myers' murder/sleuthing book, 'Gruel and Unusual Punishment' and I'd read another. It is really funny with great, crazy characters - some as ugly as a mud pie! - in the very religious Pennsylvania Dutch country. Sometimes the humor was too much for me, but always clean and funny. An easy, take to bed, go to sleep laughing mystery.

    4. Sandra

      I was not too impressed with this book. I could not get invested in any of the characters, especially the main character.She was supposed to be an Amish woman but the Amish might not agree.The plot was confusing and the ending abrupt and not believable.

    5. Karol

      I really enjoyed this installment - # 8 in the series. I don't know why I find Magdalena so fascinating . . . even when I didn't like the particular book in the series, I've kept reading!This ranks up there among my favorites in the series so far. It wasn't quite as predictable, and I saw a little more depth in the character, brought out in part by a troubled teen who became a surprising part of Mags' family.The mystery itself was a good one, and even the mystery within the mystery about how Mag [...]

    6. Tammy Rowe

      I really like Tamar Myers' books; she has a great sense of humor and the characters have such personality you have to love them :) The only thing that I find irritating in the series of books is that the same things are explained over and over--such as the way that Magdalena and Susannah's parents died, how the Amish/Mennonites were so inbred that Magdalena just needed a sandwich in order to have a family reunion cute the first time but annoying the fifth! Otherwise, the books are hysterical; I [...]

    7. Jacqui Ainsworth

      This series is growing on me. The main character has some interesting traits that can be annoying but unlike some books, it is clear that these are intended as her character and not the author's personality. They are charming little walks through Amish country. So far these are my favorites of the "recipe mystery" genre.

    8. Lana Kamennof-sine

      Tamar Myers is always an enjoyable read & this one is no exception. Will be looking out others that develop the Alison character now.Quirky characters and curiously "normal" albeit bizarre incidents make for fun.Wouldn't want to try to carry any of our dogs in a bra. (Ranging from 70-153 lbs the back strain they'd cause is horrific to contemplate.)Some interesting Grits recipes too to try.

      After several of these I cannot decided whether I care much about Magadelena and her acerbic tongue. I like the glimpses of Pennsylvania Dutch life but am not so sure about the bed and breakfast hostess. Not a memorable read.

    10. Diane

      Entertaining. Slow start but picked up midway. Liked the tongue-in-cheek humour. Ended sort of abruptly but overall a good summer read. Not sure I would read any other books by the author. My husband thinks I should read her first book, and I may, but I am not sure.

    11. Cassandra

      I enjoyed this book. Magdalena is such a likable character, the book is easy to read and I also enjoyed the somewhat unpredictable ending.

    12. Carla JFCL

      I really enjoy this series of "fluff" books. Magdalena Yoder is quite a character and I enjoy the entire cast of these books. Certainly not intellectual, but great reading for an escape!

    13. Kitty Tomlinson

      Magadalena Yoder helps the local sheriff (her hapless brother-in-law) solve the murder of Clarence Webber, who poisoned in the sheriff's jail.

    14. Karen

      I read this selection on a pleasant Sunday afternoon, sitting on my deck. An Amish/Mennonite sleuth's adventures obviously held my interest as I finished the book in one sitting!
