Description:

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?

My Thoughts:

In the latest book by Maddie Day we find Robbie Jordan owner of Pans 'N Pancakes up to her neck in maple festival of course what isn't on the menu is a chocking and murder! When a Professor Connolly shows up he rubs alot of people the wrong way including Robbie's co-worker and it's up to Robbie to figure out who killed the professor and why?  In a town like South Lick there seem to be no shortage of secrets, but can Robbie sort through them all to get to the truth or will she be cut out like the Professor?

This book was great and introduced readers to the world of maple sugaring for those who don't know.  I really liked watching how Robbie handles things and it shows Robbie more human who makes mistakes trying to do the right thing.  Robbie is far from perfect and in my case that makes her more of a perfect character she's has flaws which I think add to a story.  I'd be more worried about her if she was too perfect!  If you haven't picked up on these books yet you are missing a real treat.  This book I would highly recommend to food lovers and mystery lovers as well!
