When The Grits Hit The Fan
by Maddie Day
Once again I was glad to escape to the rolling hills of southern Indiana, and the joys of running the Pans ‘N Pancakes country store and restaurant. I have loved this series from the start, but this book was especially great!
If you’re looking for a well thought out mystery with suspense and characters you can’t help but root for, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of When the Grits Hit the Fan by Maddie Day. I think it is one you’ll be sure to enjoy.

WHEN THE GRITS HIT THE FAN was a mystery full of more twists and turns than a funnel cake.

This book made me hungry. Hungry for more from Maddie Day, and for the food mentioned in the book. Sign of a good book, is when you want the food mentioned and the series to continue.
I love this book and these characters going back and visiting Robbie and her friends, coworkers and customers are great you get to see what everyone is up to.

Despite the bitter winter in South Lick, Indiana, business is still hot at Robbie Jordan’s restaurant. But when another murder rattles the small town, can Robbie defrost the motives of a cold-blooded killer?
Before she started hosting dinners for Indiana University’s Sociology Department at Pans ‘N Pancakes, Robbie never imagined scholarly meetings could be so hostile. It’s all due to Professor Charles Stilton, who seems to thrive on heated exchanges with his peers and underlings, and tensions flare one night after he disrespects Robbie’s friend, graduate student Lou. So when Robbie and Lou go snowshoeing the next morning and find the contentious academic frozen under ice, police suspect Lou might have killed him after their public tiff. To prove her friend’s innocence, Robbie is absorbing local gossip about Professor Stilton’s past and developing her own thesis on the homicide—even if that means stirring up terrible danger for herself along the way . . .
