Being from the South, I do have a particular fondness for biscuits, so the mystery Biscuits and Slashed Browns was pretty tempting to me.  Check out the “About the Book Section” and then my review of Maddie Day’s latest novel. Maddie is also a part of the Wicked Cozy Authors Blog which is another great place for cozy readers to hang out. Be sure to look for the Prize Guy. Today he leads to the chance at a print copy of Biscuits and Slashed Browns! So grab one of the stools at the counter, get yourself a cup of joe and a piping hot biscuit.

For country-store owner Robbie Jordan, the National Maple Syrup Festival is a sweet escape from late-winter in South Lick, Indiana—until murder saps the life out of the celebration . . .

As Robbie arranges a breakfast-themed cook-off at Pans ‘N Pancakes, visitors pour into Brown County for the annual maple extravaganza. Unfortunately, that includes Professor Connolly, a know-it-all academic from Boston who makes enemies everywhere he goes—and this time, bad manners prove deadly. Soon after clashing with several scientists at a maple tree panel, the professor is found dead outside a sugar shack, stabbed to death by a local restaurateur’s knife. When an innocent woman gets dragged into the investigation and a biologist mysteriously disappears, Robbie drops her winning maple biscuits to search for answers. But can she help police crack the case before another victim is caught in a sticky situation with a killer?


My Review-4 Stars

When a restaurant owner must solve a mystery during a town festival with no help in the restaurant, she has to use her love of puzzle solving to find the clues. This mystery had a great midwestern feeling with a heaping helping of funny sayings (also known as Buckisms in the book). I found this mystery funny, romantic and suspenseful!
