Flipped for Murder by Maddie Day Pub Date: October 27, 2015
In this freshly baked series, author Maddie Day lifts the lid on a small town in southern Indiana, where a newcomer is cooking up a new start--until a murderer muddles the recipe...
Nursing a broken heart, Robbie Jordan is trading in her life on the West Coast for the rolling hills of southern Indiana. After paying a visit to her Aunt Adele, she fell in love with the tiny town of South Lick. And when she spots a For Sale sign on a rundown country store, she decides to snap it up and put her skills as a cook and a carpenter to use. Everyone in town shows up for the grand re-opening of Pans ‘n Pancakes, but when the mayor's disagreeable assistant is found dead, Robbie realizes that not all press is good press. With all eyes on her, she'll have to summon her puzzle-solving skills to clear her name, unscramble the town's darkest secrets, and track down a cold-blooded killer--before she's the next to die...
Review Robbie Jordan's dream of owning a rustic country store/cafe has come true. Despite a few obstacles in the permitting process, Pans 'n Pancakes is open for business. Everyone in town comes to the opening including the mayor's assistant Stella, the woman who made setting up and opening Pans 'n Pancakes as difficult as possible.
When Stella is found dead later that evening with one of Robbie's cheesy biscuits stuffed in her mouth, suspicions fall on Robbie. As it becomes clear that someone is trying to frame her, Robbie starts asking questions. Stella was blackmailing much of the town and suspects abound. The longer it takes to find the killer, the more danger Pans 'n Pancakes is in. To protect her livelihood and her life, Robbie needs to quickly find the truth.
Flipped for Murder is an enjoyable cozy with just a touch of romance. With its cast of interesting small town characters and agreeable lead, Flipped for Murder looks to be a great start to a new cozy series.
Flipped for Murder is available for preorder and will be released October 27, 2015.
