This is the sixth book in the Country Store series, another of my favorites by another favorite author, Maddie Day aka Edith Maxwell. I love the down home feeling in this series and how Robbie has taken to small town life in her little country store and restaurant. I may live in Ohio, but I love visiting Indiana and always feel at home there!
My Goodreads review:
Strangled Eggs and Ham by Maddie Day
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It’s like going home to friends every time I read a book in this series! This latest installment gave aunt Adele and her pal Vera a lot of storyline, and that was fun, since Adele is such a hoot and probably my favorite character. Vera is no slouch either. They both did great holding their own against a killer at the end of the book. I liked how Robbie has become even smarter when it comes to security and reporting everything to the police rather than taking off and winging it alone. Ok, well maybe she did the alone thing which was a bit nerve-wracking to read, but it was all good. I liked that Oscar Thompson and Buck’s cousin Wanda were back.
I was pretty close on who the killer was, but the chase was the best part and nailing this person. Robbie had a close encounter that she escaped from–as I said, she’s getting better at this. Abe was away for this story, but they at least kept in touch. Danna had a little more storyline as well. I love all Robbie’s employees. Each one of them has such an awesome personality and brings different and fun things happening when it’s their turn to work. As always, I’m anxious for the next book in the series!
