I'm not sure how I got behind in this delightful series, but I did. Today I'd like to shine a spotlight on Biscuits and Slashed Browns by Maddie Day. This book is the fourth in the Country Store Mystery series and was released earlier this year. ow to find time to catch up!
From the back cover:
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 syrup biscuits to search for answers. But can she help police crack teh case before another victim is caught in a sticky situation with a killer?
