    1. Dollycas’s ThoughtsWe arrive in South Lick just in time for the 5th Annual National Maple Syrup Festival. The cook-off will be held at Pans ‘N Pancakes and Robbie is excited about her maple flavored entry, Maple Curry Biscuits. There is also a conference on maple tree science with many professors taking part. Some of them will also be judging the cook-off. Professor Warren Connolly from Boston is one of the judges. Robbie finds he not well liked by his fellow academics. When the man is found [...]


    2. Loved it!! It had all of the elements of a great cozy--great female protagonist, small town setting, interesting and multi-layered plot, well-placed red herrings, and Robbie's friends. But this book goes even further. I've never been to Indiana but with the author's excellent use of dialogue, local dialect, customs and foods, I feel like I am right there in South Lick for the Maple Syrup Festival. The writing is simply a "cut" (pardon the pun) above the rest! The book can be read as a standalone [...]


    3. March brings a maple syrup festival to Brown County, Indiana, and Robbie Jordan is hoping to snag some of the tourists into her shop, Pans ‘N Pancakes. However, the festival has also brought Dr. Warren Connolly to town, a professor hated for many reasons. He is found murdered one morning before the day’s events can get started, and the police begin to look at one of Robbie’s friends as the killer. Then a local maple syrup farmer goes missing. What is going on?I thought we might be in for s [...]


    4. Once I started reading I realized how much I had missed the mysteries around Robbie Jordan. It is fast paced but not rushed and I didn't want to put the book down. The ending seems just a tad "rough" for a cozy Robbie becomes multi-dimensional through her many interests. She is not only owning and running her restaurant the Pans ‘N Pancakes but also selling antique cookware, renovating and remodeling rooms over her restaurant into a B&B, loves to solve and create crossword puzzles and ridi [...]

    6. It’s the month of March and time for the Brown County Maple Syrup Festival in South Lick, Indiana. Robbie Jordan, owner and chef of Pans ‘N Pancakes, has just finished hanging a “Join Maple Madness” banner on the front porch of her quaint little diner. Along with festival there was a conference being held on the maple tree science. Attending the conference were a local Professor Sonia Genest, Dr. Sajit Rao (who is the father of Robbie’s sous chef, Turner Rao), Professor Warren Connolly [...]


    7. I’ve loved this series from the very first page of book one, FLIPPED FOR MURDER. The characters, the location, and of course author Maddie Day’s writing, continue to bring me back again and again. BISCUITS AND SLASHED BROWNS was a fast paced tale, with a well plotted mystery that left me hanging onto my seat through all of the twists and turns. When the action packed reveal came, I was really taken by surprise. Another delightful installment of the Country Store Mysteries, BISCUITS AND SLASH [...]


    8. I finished reading Biscuits and Slashed Browns Friday. This is the 4th book in the Country Store Mystery Series by Maddie Day. This one had a ripped from the headlines feel with two interesting storylines for a cozy mystery. I enjoyed the idea of the environmental side and the medical side of the twists and turns of this mystery. Main character Robbie has her hands full and is kept very busy in this cozy mystery. With staff issues, a maple festival and a town full of scientists, she is already r [...]


    9. OOOOOOOOOO-you all have to wait until February of 2108 to get this installment of the Country Store Mysteries, but I was lucky enough to get an ARC. Trust me-it will be well worth the wait. It gives you time to catch up on the first three books in this delicious series. In Slashed Browns we find Robbie deep in the sticky stuff as she's preparing to host part of the Maple Mayhem Festivald mayhem is what she gets. A dead professor, a missing knife, an assistant with a sprained foot, a family with [...]


    10. Every time I read a new book in this series, I think it's the best one yet. This one did not disappoint! South Lick is having a maple syrup festival and one of the judges ends up murdered so of course Robbie is going to do her best to find out what happened so that none of her friends ends up being blamed. As always she has to watch her back so the murderer doesn't make her the next headline.I love how Abe and Robbie's relationship is growing. It's refreshing that he doesn't get on her case for [...]


    11. It’s always a delight to open a new book in a long-enjoyed series and visit with friends. Such is the case with BISCUITS AND SLASHED BROWNS, the fourth book in the Country Store Mystery series by Maddie Day. The protagonist, Robbie Jordan, is a no-nonsense, can-do type of young woman. Not only is she a great chef at her restaurant, Pans ‘N Pancakes, in South Lick, Indiana, but she is also a skilled carpenter. Robbie has a keen intelligence, solving the hardest crossword puzzles (in ink, no l [...]


    12. Another great installment in this cozy mystery series. The mystery was well planned with many suspicious characters that had me guessing until the end. I look forward to the next book in the series where hopefully Robbie's Italian family will play a role.


    13. BISCUITS AND SLASHED BROWNS in the Country Store Mystery Series is a riveting cozy murder mystery that has you on the edge of your seat at times while you’re pulling for Robbie Jordan to solve the case before anyone else gets hurt, including Robbie.The characters in the book are enduring, colorful and times irritating like lots of small town folks. You will fall in love with townsfolk as well as their quaint southern sayings. If like me, a southerner, it will make you smile remembering hearing [...]


    14. Biscuits and Slashed Browns is the fourth book in Maddie Day’s Country Store Mysteries series. This is an easy read and it flows smoothly at a steady pace. The storyline is well plotted and the characters are relatable. Ms. Day did an excellent job of incorporating the local dialect in the “spoken” words, but not in the narrative, which I believe adds to the readability of her book and allowed the characters to come to life. I recommend this series to readers who enjoy reading a well-craft [...]


    15. It is maple syrup time in South Lick, Indiana and business at Robbie Jordan's restaurant is booming. A professor who is attending an environmental conference nearby the area is found murder behind a sugar shack. He was killed with a special knife used by a local restaurateur. The father of one Robbie's workers is missing and is a person of interest in the killing. Robbie decided to do some investigating. Answers need to be found before another person is killed. I highly recommend this book and s [...]


    16. Quick fun read, can't wait to hear how Robbie's visit with her dad goes. Good mystery. Very enjoyable! Already looking forward to the next one!


    17. BISCUITS AND SLASHED BROWNS by Maddie DayWarning, may cause insomnia and/or dereliction of chores. My cure for insomnia is a cup of warm milk with a smidgeon of rum and reading to a point where Robbie preps the kitchen for the next morning’s rush and goes to sleep. No cure for neglected chores; they can just wait.Despite her best intentions and her friends’ warnings, Robbie can’t help turning her puzzle-solving mind to mystery, especially when the shadow of murder falls upon friends she is [...]


    18. The Pans and Pancakes cozy restaurant/antique kitchenware store in South Lick, Indiana is the setting for this sweet and sleuthing cozy mystery. It's the fourth in the series but I had no problem with jumping in while not reading the other stories yet. During the Maple Sugaring Off festival a contentious professor is found dead. Robby Jordan, the restaurant's owner puts her overzealous sleuthing skills to work to try and figure out who the culprit is. Motives abound from several suspects.Robbie [...]


    19. Full review to follow in February 2018 (book tour), but for now I'll say: delicious, dedicated and dangerous! :)


    20. It's a sticky murder. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this cozy murder mystery that revolved around a Maple syrup festival. Robbie's witnesses a couple of people arguing with a visiting professor who is later discovered dead by Robbie's aunt. Robbie's employee at her country shop and her friend are both personally involved in the investigation. Robbie gets involved because of her curiosity and love of puzzle solving. All the while she has to run her country shop/restaurant. I liked the main and sid [...]


    21. Biscuits and Slashed Browns is the 4th in the Country Store Mysteries by Maddie Day.As Robbie Jordan prepares to host a breakfast-themed cook-off at Pans ‘N Pancakes, Robbie has no idea that this will turn into another puzzling murder investigation. As the locals and visitors head into South Lick, IN for the annual maple extravaganza, no one is prepared for the snide professor from Boston, who leaves enemies everywhere he travels.Unfortunately for the professor, his time at the maple fest is c [...]


    22. “Biscuits and Slashed Browns” earns 5/5 Maple-Infused Murder…Delicious!I am new to the Country Store Mystery series penned by Maddie Day, aka Edith Maxwell, and was so entertained by “Biscuits and Slashed Browns” that I now consider myself a big fan! In Maddie Day’s fourth book, she immediately grabbed my interest with the professional conflict between Professors Sonia Genest, a lifelong resident, and Warren Connolly, visitor from Boston College. They vied for the same grant money th [...]


    23. Synopsis: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 a [...]


    24. **I voluntarily read this ARC**Another great addition to the series. I love how it has a "Southern Lite" feel to it. Some of those sayings are absolutely hilarious. I really enjoyed the mystery, and I'm looking forward to reading more books in this series.


    25. Robbie is dishing up meals and solving mysteries in this latest installment installment of the series. People are flocking to town for the maple extravaganza. Not everyone is being welcomed with open arms. When a controversial professor shows up, bringing conflict and bad feelings with him, Robbie tries to stay out of it and just keep on cooking. When the professor ends up murdered, and her new employee's family are the main suspects, Robbie cannot help but get involved and try to crack the case [...]


    26. I read other instalments of this series and always like them as they were also really good.It is nice to read about the development of the characters and their relationships.This is a good read, entertaining and enjoyable with no plot hole and a good pace.Sometimes it seemed to that Robbie was a bit on the "rigid" side sticking to truth at all cost without understanding what the consequences but this was just a small down in a very good mystery.Strongly recommended.Many thanks to Kensington Book [...]


    27. It’s the National Maple Syrup festival in South Lick, Indiana. Robbie Jordan, local chef and proprietor, holds the kickoff culinary competition in her restaurant and vintage cookware store, Pans ‘N Pancakes. One of the judges, a disagreeable Professor, Warren Connolly, suffers a choking episode, nearly turning a fun day into a disaster if not for Robbie’s beau, Abe O’Neill, who comes to the man’s rescue. Thankfully he was there since Robbie observed that those in close proximity to the [...]


    28. A quick fast paced addition to the series. The town of South Lick is in the middle of their maple syrup festival and there is a murder. Thankfully it wasn't at the diner this time, but Robbie is interested in who the killer is and clearing her friends that are implicated. I received an eARC from the publisher through NetGalley.


    29. This is book #4 in this series. This series is best read in order to best enjoy it. Robbie owns a restaurant & country store. The National Maple Syrup Festival is going on which brings tourists to town. A Boston professor is a judge but is not popular with anyone and then ends up dead. Robbie begins to ask questions around town which makes her a target. She has to find out who killed the professor. The mystery was good, and I liked the characters. The only thing that annoyed me was some of t [...]


    30. This is the fourth book in what I find to be a very entertaining series. It is set in the fictional town of South Lick Indiana which provides a charming Midwest setting which I enjoy. The characters are well developed and continue to grow as the series progresses. I like the main character of Robbie Jordan. She is smart, caring, independent, and can get herself into more trouble without even trying. The cast of secondary characters rounds out the story nicely, providing some diversions and great [...]
