Mennonite innkeeper Magdalena Yoder is at the bank with her four-year-old son when three armed Amish men burst in and start shooting and -- more surprisingly -- cursing. When the robbers flee at the sound of police sirens, Jacob wonders why they had mustaches -- unlike all the other Amish men he knows -- Magdalena springs into action to catch the thieves. The may be armed, but they may not be Amish!

"A piquant brew, bubbling over with mystery and mirth. I loved every page of it."
"As sweet as a piece of brown-sugar pie...Magdalena is so likable."
