An ARC honest review for Kensington Books via NetGalley.
The second book in the Robbie Jordan, Country Store mysteries by Maddie Day, aka Edith Maxwell.
Erica Shermer is alternately obnoxious and flirtatious at a homecoming party held in Robbie’s store. But when she is found dead the next day by cookware, all eyes are focused on Robbie’s friend Phil as the murderer. And Robbie has a tall order to clear up the mess in her store and get Phil off a murder charge in the process.
I really enjoyed this book…so glad that I have brought the first one in this series, Flipped For Murder, to read.
Robbie Jordan may have had reservations about the murder victim, but she still needs to turn up the heat on a killer if she wants to keep her new restaurant open for business…
In the charming small town of South Lick, Indiana, Robbie has transformed a rundown country store into the runaway hit Pans ‘N Pancakes. But the most popular destination for miles around can also invite trouble. Erica Shermer may be the widow of handsome local lawyer Jim Shermer’s brother, but she doesn’t appear to be in mourning. At a homecoming party held in Robbie’s store, Erica is alternately obnoxious and flirtatious–even batting her eyelashes at Jim. When Erica turns up dead in the store the next morning, apparently clobbered with cookware, the police suspect Robbie’s friend Phil, who closed up after the party. To clear Phil and calm her customers, Robbie needs to step out from behind the counter and find the real killer in short order…
