Batter Off Dead by Maddie Day

Batter Off Dead (A Country Store Mystery Book 10)

A Country Store Mystery #10

We are back in South Lick, Indiana at Pans ‘N Pancakes. Robbie sells both at her country store.

She and her new husband, Abe, are out with the entire town enjoying a nice summer evening with fireworks. Even the folks from the assisted living center are there including Buck’s dad, Roy, and his lady friend Vi. Even with his blindness Roy can still knit with the ladies and let his other senses wander.

When the fireworks end, Vi is found dead in her chair. Murdered with what looks like a knitting needle maybe. Buck’s father is devastated not just for Vi but for his own wife who was murdered long ago. The killer was never caught.

Robbie is going to have to run her business and solve a murder. And she is good at both. Snooping and feeding people is what she does best. But someone out there wants her to mind her own business. But we know she isn’t going to do that.

This is a favorite series of mine. The food descriptions are to die for. And the recipes are included!

  2. Hi Patty,
    thanks for your little review. Seems to be a book worth reading.
    After the extreme successfull book “It Can’t Always Be Caviar” (1965) by J.M. Simmel it became a fashion to include recipes in books of suspense – but for a couple of years only. Maddie Day seems to pick up that thread again.
    With kind regards
    The Fab Four of Cley

    1. Now I’ll have to track that book down! Laura Childs was the first Cozy author I read that had great recipes.

  3. In the 60th everybody talked about Simmel’s recipes and there were quite some authors who copied this.
