In Custard's Last Stand: A Pennsylvania Dutch Mystery with Recipes, the 11th culinary cozy by Tamar Myers (after 2002's Gruel and Unusual Punishment), the murder of Col. George Custard puts an end to the tycoon's plans to build a fancy hotel in Hernia, Penn. In between recipes (mostly for custard), witty, eccentric Magdalena Yoder, the Mennonite proprietor of the PennDutch Inn, pulls together clues to the killer's identity.
