      At first I found the protagonist funny. She has a quick wit and it was cute. But that wore thin quickly and it became just plain annoying. The mystery itself was fine, but the characters were so annoying that I didn't really care.Now on to the kiss of death for me with this book: Her main character harps on and on about using proper English and then destroys both German and Spanish. So here it is, Tarmar Myers, I hope you're reading this: It's 'jawohl', not 'yah voll'. While 'yah voll' is phonet [...]

      I can’t stop reading this series. Just like I can’t stop watching repeats of L&O:SVU. It’s a sickness. I’m sure there is a 12-step program somewhere. I’m just not sure I have the strength to stand up & admit my affliction.

      Tamar Myers is a hoot and a half!! LOL Those who have read her books will get that reference. I have read 4 of her Penn Dutch Series. All are so funny. It seems like every other sentence I am lol!

      A naive farmer sells his land to buyers who want to use it for a winery and a hotel in little Hernia, PA. The Amish and Mennonites are tea-totalers and many are against the plan. And when the winery's co-owner winds up dead in the building's foundation, innkeeper Magdalena Yoder is asked by the new chief of police to find out who killed the woman. The "Pennsylvania Dutch" mysteries series is always fun. Magdalena makes a great, humorous heroine. I hope there are more in this series!

      Grape Expectations is a good book, but it is a slow moving story line, it didn't hold my interest. But when I finish I told myself I would read another story by Tamar Myers. It is a good Cozy Mysteries it just doesn't move real fast, it gives you a lot of information about the characters and the environment that it is set in.

      I enjoyed the mystery aspect of the story, but even though I typically enjoy word play, for some reason the particular style of humor in "Grape Expectations" by Tamar Myers fell flat for me.Themes of greed and paths to truth seemed to me buried under PG-13 rated puns. I recognize there was a lot of comic exaggeration at play, but I had a hard time believing certain plot points such as a police chief bringing her number one suspect into an investigation. That could be my fault for watching too mu [...]

      Every time I read another book in this series, I feel like I owe someone an apology . . .This is # 14 in a series that has a few surprises, contrived comedy, and a main character that I'm not sure anyone can figure out.The mystery aspect in this one was OK, but again the author shakes things up quite a lot. Over the course of the series, characters that were very much a part of the story are sometimes shoved aside by one means or another. I sometimes think that the author, just like me, doesn't [...]

      Alcohol is a no-no in the Mennonite community of Hernia, Pennsylvania, but the strange and unexpected events bubbling up in town are enough to make everyone feel a little tipsy. A couple of unprincipled outsiders have bought an old farm at the edge of town, claiming they want to rename the land Grape Expectations and use it to grow fruit. But their real plan is to start a vineyard and open a winery. No one likes the intruders, so everyone's a suspect when the vineyard's co-owner is found entombe [...]

      In the predominately, Mennonite and Amish community of Hernia, Pennsylvania alcohol is frowned upon. Imagine how upset the townspeople are when they learn an area Mennonite farmer has sold his land to outsiders who plan to start a vineyard and winery. They also plan to have a first class resort and spa. When the manager of the new vineyard is found dead in the cement footings, Magdalena finds herself a suspect as the owner of the only bed and breakfast with A list guests.

      A murderously fun book! A murder takes place in Amish Country and a Menonite sleuth is on the case Sounds like the start of a bad joke (a priest, a nun and a rabbi walk into a bar) but Mrs. Myers has a way of pulling you into this somehow believeable story and not letting go. Laugh-out-loud in some parts! Fun, fun, fun!

      Well.is was a silly and funny book. Set in a town called Hernia"Our great-great-great grandpa named it. He wanted to name it Hemorrhoid, but he didn't know how to spell it.".d from then on it was funnier and sillier!!!

      Weaker on the mystery side, but a welcome continued shakeup of the cast and dropping of at least some of the standard jokes helped barely eke out the third star.

      How can you not love a character who refers to her underthings as "sturdy Christian underwear"?

      This was my first Myer's book. I think I want better in the future.

      This is my first experience with the Pennsylvania Dutch Mystery series, and I very much enjoyed it. I am totally tickled by the characters, and will be trying some of the recipes! Another set that will be in my collection! OH MY! MUST buy more bookcases! Eight will NOT be enough!
