    Mystery Goodness Wrapped in Pancakes & Biscuits!

    This was my first introduction to Maddie Day, and it was a great introduction! When I started this book I had a hard time getting into the story. The descriptions were beautiful and I loved "seeing" the rolling hills of southern Indiana, however I was just not immediately sucked into the story. However, I am glad that I stuck through the first several chapters because I ended up really enjoying the story and characters, especially the everything about running a country store that specializes in cheese biscuits! I was so happy to find the recipe for said cheese biscuits, in the back of the book, along with a few other tasty-sounding recipes. I can't wait to try them out in my own kitchen. The plot itself is well written and well developed, however I did get lost in a few places because I kept forgetting who was killed. I think a bit more character development would have concreted her in my mind. I did peg the "who done it" about halfway through, even if I didn't get the "why" part correct! I also enjoyed Robbie's personal mystery that she worked through, of finding out who her father was. This is the first book in a new series, but I can't wait for more! Overall, Flipped for Murder was a fun read with good writing enhanced by an enjoyable story line and great characters! I will be inline for the second book of this series! I received an ARC of this book, from NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.

    Cosy Murder

    I like mysteries but so tired of blood, guts, gore and nastiness. This book has someone murdered but it is in the background. The mystery gets solved but many other things also happen to round out the story

    Enjoyable cozy mystery!

    I just finished the new cozy mystery Flipped for Murder by Maddie Day. It is opening day for Pans ‘N Pancakes in South Lick, Indiana. It is a restaurant that sells breakfast and lunch as well as having a country store that sells vintage kitchenware. Roberta “Robbie” Jordan is excited to finally have her dream become a reality. Robbie had been working for the Nashville Inn for the last three years (since moving to Indiana from California). Stella Rogers, assistant to the mayor, gave her a hard time in obtaining the necessary permits to open Pans ‘N Pancakes (her son wanted the same location). Stella has held the position in the mayor’s office since she was in her twenties (which means she knows a lot of secrets). Her opening day is a success. When Robbie comes back from a date with Jim Shermer, Buck Bird is waiting for her. Buck is second in command at the police department. Stella Rogers was found dead in her home with one of Robbie’s cheese biscuits stuffed in her mouth (Stella purchased extra biscuits to take home). Robbie is considered a person of interest. Someone does not want Robbie to succeed in her new venture. Robbie wants to stay out of jail so she starts looking into Stella’s life to see who wanted her dead. Turns out that Stella had made a lot of enemies. Robbie uses her crossword puzzle skills to figure out who killed Stella Rogers and is trying to frame her for the crime. After twenty-seven years Robbie finds out the identity of her biological father. Her mother never told her about him and now she is deceased. Will Robbie be able to connect with him? There is also an adorable little kitten named Birdy (his meows sound like cheeps). I found Flipped for Murder to be a good cozy mystery. I enjoyed the characters (and thankfully, there are not too many and they are not too quirky), the town of South Lick (a typical small town), and the mystery (it is a medium level mystery). The author provided some great clues the lead the reader to the killer (she also provided some information that could lead the reader down the wrong path). I did like the side mystery of Robbie trying to find out information about her father. It gives the reader more insight into Robbie. I give Flipped for Murder 4 out of 5 stars. I would like to see the characters fleshed out a little more (we did not get many details on Robbie’s past and really no details on Jim Shermer) and a more complicated mystery (I have only been stumped once this year). There are some nice recipes at the end of the novel (cheese biscuits included) and a preview of the next book in the series. If you like to read cozy mysteries, you will love reading Flipped for Murder! I received a complimentary copy of Flipped for Murder from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Vibrant, well thought out and inviting

    I really think that one of the reasons that I am such a fan of Cozy Mysteries is that you get an in depth peek at the day to day dealings of someone's life. It's a slice of a different world, shown all the way down to the nitty gritty. You are stepping into their shoes for the time period it takes to solve the mystery. As someone who loves interesting facts and examining the minutia of various careers, these books just appeal to the nerdy lover of learning in me. In Flipped for Murder, we explore a small midwestern town via a country store and eatery. Our guide is Robbie Jordan, a recent transplant from California. She has ties to the area in the form of her Aunt Adele. With the recent death of her mother, being near family, in the town where her mother grew up, is supposed to be a balm. Unfortunately, the murder that takes place the evening of her grand opening is less than soothing. Especially when it looks like someone leaves clues to throw suspicion on her. Once I started reading this, I had a hard time putting it down. The story had a nice flow and did a good job of keeping me guessing on what would happen next. I was a bit surprised at big whodunit reveal. Honestly, I didn't think see the person as being cunning enough to have planned everything. Also, there were plenty of set-ups towards more mysteries being hinted at. I finished this book excited to see what would happen in the next one. There were several recipes at the end, for some of the more interesting foods mentioned throughout for those who enjoy that. This book is the first in a new series for Maddie Day, a pseudonym for Edith Maxwell, though an experienced author, she is still new to me. Robbie's world was vibrant, well thought out and inviting. I can't wait to go back again. I gave this book 4 stars. Thanks to Netgalley, Kensington and Great Escapes for the opportunity to read and review this book.
