If You Like Maddie Day Books, You’ll Love…

Flipped For Murder is the first book in the Country Store Mysteries series. The book introduces us to Robbie Jordan who leaves the hustle-and-bustle of the West Coast behind and heading to a small town in southern Indiana. She is there visiting her aunt and falls in love with the town, and decides to put in roots when she sees a For Sale sign on a rundown country store. The town sets out to support the store, but things get complicated when the mayor’s assistant is found dead at the opening. Robbie will need to use her puzzle solving skills to solve the murder and stop the killer before they act again.

The Cozy Capers Book Group is another series from Maddie Day and the first book is called Murder on Cape Cod. The book introduces us to Mac Almeida who runs a bicycle shop in Westham, Massachusetts. It’s getting to be busy season and tourists are expected, but instead of tourists she finds her handyman dead. Authorities suspect her as the culprit and the murder weapon would point to her (or someone close to her) as well so Mac gets the help of her book club to clear her name.
