Penguin Putnam A tasty mystery-with a side of killer chili
Includes six chili recipes
Magdalena Yoder and her Mennonite congregation gather for the annual chili cook-off, only to have beloved Reverend Schrock fall face-first into his bowl. For his widow's sake, Magdalena begins to look into the victim's death, soon discovering that Schrock wasn't all that well liked by his flock.
Baker & Taylor When Reverend Schrock ends up dead at the annual church chili supper, thanks to a not-so-accidental allergic reaction to the peanut butter someone added, innkeeper Magdalena Yoder investigates, only to encounter plenty of people who had wanted the reverend dead--including a vengeful serial monogamist and a wrongly accused man against whom the victim had testified.
