    Back home again in Indiana . . .

    Strangled Eggs and Ham is Book 6 in the popular A Country Store Mystery series. Even though there is a murder for Robbie Jordan to solve in each book, Maddie Day’s storytelling is so good that they read more like “A Day in the Life of Robbie” with a murder woven in. The story moves deliberately along with suspects present but no one really popping up too soon as the favorite, giving you time to fully immerse yourself into the story and enjoy it. Very satisfying. I grew up in Indiana and feel right at home when reading one of the Country Store Mysteries. A few words in and I am already hungry and want to be at Pans ‘N Pancakes having breakfast. Then I remember the humidity – it’s often oppressive and can make you cranky. Maybe even murderous. Even though suffering when it’s humid (or Midwest-cold!) Robbie has made a full life for herself in Salt Lick, Indiana. Her country store, restaurant and Bed & Breakfast are thriving, and she is surrounded by her Aunt Adele and good friends and staff, and a boyfriend, although he is only present via telephone this entry in the series. She’s somehow managed to be involved in solving several murders in the short time she’s been here, and it’s interesting to watch her approach: Robbie structures her thinking about the murders like a puzzle with Q&A. Unique. In Strangled Eggs and Ham a new resort is going to be built at the town limits. The advocates and the protestors have squared off, and it’s serious. Someone is murdered, threats are made and things get violent. Robbie is determined to get to the bottom of it before anyone else, like her beloved Aunt Adele, is hurt. You can jump in and read any book in the series as they stand alone just fine, but I recommend reading the entire series in order. In addition to the terrific titles and covers, you’ll get the backstory, history and progression of events and friendships, plus the fun of more murders! Once you’re caught up with this series, check out everything else written by this author. Equally engaging. Thanks to author Maddie Day for providing an advance copy of Strangled Eggs and Ham for me to read and provide my honest review. I love this series. I always feel at home – I, too, used to say wash as if it rhymed with borscht minus the T. Took me many years to break the habit and I still sometimes slip into it.

    Entertaining From First to Last!

    Another wonderful addition to this fun series! Robbie Jordan's restaurant is busier than ever; with B&B guests upstairs and more customers than she has seats she is run off her feet during business hours. However that still leaves her plenty of time to catch up with friends, family and to know what's going on in South Lick .. and even to look into yet another murder. I love this series. It's such fun! Living in a rural Scottish village, the food in the county of Indiana is all new to me although there is enough of a description for me to work it out! The characters are, by now, quite familiar but there are always new ones popping up in each book. The story flows beautifully and the author always keep the perpetrator's identity cloaked in secrecy until the very last pages - just how I like it. Skilfully crafted, there is so much happening in this one that I just seemed to fly through the pages. So good! Entertaining from first to last, this is turning out to be a great series. Author Maddie Day also writes as Edith Maxwell; her Quaker midwife mysteries are excellent and well worth a look if you enjoy this genre. A quick mention also has to go to her creative titles in the County Story Mystery Series .. always worth a chuckle! This, the sixth book, absolutely  earns a full house of stars.

    A town divided with deadly consequences

    A proposed resort is heading to South Lick and the town is divided between those who want to keep the mountain green and protect the wildlife and those that need the jobs the resort will bring. Robbie’s Aunt Adele is in the opposition camp and forms a group to protest the resort, but Robbie is remaining neutral as she depends on the locals to keep her business afloat. Turns out one of Robbie B&B guests is a hot shot environmental lawyer and he’s wiling to provide his services to Aunt Adele and the group for free. It seems the developer is more than familiar with the attorney and Robbie’s BFF, Lou, is smitten by him. Before much can be done with the resort or the budding romance with Lou, the man is found strangled on the resort property. Soon after threats begin coming Aunt Adele’s way and Robbie finds herself doing what she does best, trying to protect the people she loves…and putting herself in harms way. It’s time to find a killer as the town awaits the planning board’s decision. I truly enjoy this series, which is one of only a handful that make me feel like I am spending time visiting with the characters. The characters are vibrant and the South Lick comes to life on the pages. Don’t miss the recipes that are included.

    A lighthearted whodunit

    Strangled Eggs and Ham is a charming cozy mystery. It can be read alone if you have not read the previous books in A Country Store Mystery series. I like the setting of South Lick, Indiana and how the author captured the accents and colloquialisms of individuals who live in the Midwest. Buck certainly has some unique phrases and I am amazed at that man’s appetite. Robbie Jordan has her hands full running the restaurant and her B&B. Robbie is a friendly main character and who likes to be active (bikes all over) and stay proactive. Aunt Adele is a hoot. Adele is spry and has no qualms about breaking the law (she actually hopes to get arrested). She is against the proposed resort and has some plans in place that will cause quite a ruckus. Her friend, Vera is a willing coconspirator. The mystery provided a couple of suspects and there are good clues to aid the reader in solving Geoffrey’s death. The reveal is suspenseful, and action packed. There are a couple of unanswered questions at the end. There is supposition, but I wish we had a firm resolution. I enjoyed how the resort issue was handled by the town. There are recipes at the end for some of the delights Robbie whipped up for guests at Pans ‘N Pancakes. Strangled Eggs and Ham is an enticing cozy mystery with the friendly town, quirky residents, tantalizing food, good gossip, and one nosy parker out to solve a perplexing puzzler of a whodunit.
