Sort of

As you can see from the tour dates above, I am late in posting this. 
My Internet was out for just over a week and I was unable to post on my day of the tour. So, I'm jumping in all late because I want to do what's right by the author, and by Great Escape Virtual Book Tours.

Without further ado, my post originally due August 8.

I'm so excited to be celebrating
Book 5 in the Country Store Mysteries
by Maddie Day

Restaurateur Robbie Jordan is ready for the boost in business a local music festival brings to South Lick, Indiana, but the beloved event strikes a sour note when one of the musicians is murdered . . .
June’s annual Brown County Bluegrass Festival at the Bill Monroe Music Park in neighboring Beanblossom is always a hit for Robbie’s country store and café, Pans ‘N Pancakes. This year, Robbie is even more excited, because she’s launching a new bed and breakfast above her shop. A few festival musicians will be among Robbie’s first guests, along with her father, Roberto, and his wife, Maria. But the celebration is cut short when a performer is found choked to death by a banjo string. Now all the banjo players are featured in a different kind of lineup. To clear their names, Robbie must pair up with an unexpected partner to pick at the clues and find the plucky killer before he can conduct an encore performance . . .
Includes Recipes for You to Try!



Author Maddie Day won me over with the first tasty book in this series, FLIPPED FOR MURDER. With her easy, flowing style of writing, she pens a story that draws the reader in, holding them captivated until the very last word. DEATH OVER EASY is more proof of that.

I enjoyed my time back in South Lick, Indiana, with protagonist Robbie Jordan, and all the great characters that make up the town. It’s been a treat watching them, and the entire Country Store Mystery series evolve.

The mystery element itself was so well done. I was seriously chasing the wrong trail for quite some time. In the end, I did guess right, but that’s not something I mind. It makes me feel like I’m finally developing my sleuth senses. Who am I kidding. I had it narrowed down with a 50/50 shot of being right. I lucked out. 😊

As delicious as the first four installments, DEATH OVER EASY was a buffet of murder, mystery, and mouth-watering meals. The perfect recipe for a cozy mystery.
