It’s March & time for National Maple Syrup time in Indiana.
For country-store owner Robbie Jordan, the National Maple Syrup Festival is a sweet escape from late-winter in South Lick, Indiana—until murder saps the life out of the celebration . . .
As Robbie arranges a breakfast-themed cook-off at Pans ‘N Pancakes, visitors pour into Brown County for the annual maple extravaganza. Unfortunately, that includes Professor Connolly, a know-it-all academic from Boston who makes enemies everywhere he goes—and this time, bad manners prove deadly. Soon after clashing with several scientists at a maple tree panel, the professor is found dead outside a sugar shack, stabbed to death by a local restaurateur’s knife. When an innocent woman gets dragged into the investigation and a biologist mysteriously disappears, Robbie drops her winning maple biscuits to search for answers. But can she help police crack the case before another victim is caught in a sticky situation with a killer?
Lisa Net Galley Review :
This is the 4th book in this series but my first. I really enjoyed the characters and the vivid description of the area. We lived in Indiana for many years & I can picture this happening in the small towns in the area & the sugar shacks in the woods making maple syrup.
. It’s March & National Maple Syrup Festival in town & everyone is busy with a conference going on.a breakfast cook off and now a murder to solve. Robbie is there to help solve the murder before her biscuits can burn. A fast paced and sweet (like syrup) cozy mystery. One not to be missed. Lisa
