Today, the Wickeds are celebrating the release of Flipped for Murder, the first book in the new Country Store Mysteries from Kensington by Maddie Day (aka our own Edith Maxwell).
Here’s the lowdown on Flipped.
Nursing a broken heart, Robbie Jordan is trading in her life on the West Coast for the rolling hills of southern Indiana. After paying a visit to her Aunt Adele, she fell in love with the tiny town of South Lick. And when she spots a For Sale sign on a rundown country store, she decides to snap it up and put her skills as a cook and a carpenter to use. Everyone in town shows up for the grand re-opening of Pans ‘n Pancakes, but when the mayor’s disagreeable assistant is found dead, Robbie realizes that not all press is good press. With all eyes on her, she’ll have to summon her puzzle-solving skills to clear her name, unscramble the town’s darkest secrets, and track down a cold-blooded killer–before she’s the next to die…
What say you, Wickeds?
Liz: So happy for you, Edith! I can’t wait to meet Robbie and take a trip to Indiana! Major congratulations.
Barb: I haven’t read Flipped, but I have heard so many good things from the people I know who have. I can’t wait!
Jessie: It looks like an appetizing start to a delicious new series. Congratulations, Edith!
Julie: Edith/Maddie, you amaze me! I am so thrilled about the launch of this new series, and can’t wait to visit South Lick, and Pans and Pancakes.
Sherry: I read an early version of Flipped and was floored! Edith has created a completely new character with a unique voice and a fresh take on life. Robbie is as different from Cam (in Edith’s Local Foods series) as grits are from Boston baked beans and folks, not many people can pull that off.
Edith: You guys are darlings! Thank you SO much for these congratulations, and for all the other stuff you do behind the scenes, each and every one of you, to help make my author career a possibility. I love you each – and each of our blog readers here, too. So I’ll give away a copy of FLIPPED to a commenter today!
Readers: Who has been to Indiana, or the Midwest generally? What’s your favorite part, and least favorite? And if you haven’t, do you have any more than a vague idea the difference between Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio? (Edith sure didn’t before she moved there!)
