Biscuits and Slashed Browns is an entertaining cozy mystery that has the traditional feel that I enjoy.
~The Power of Words
The mystery is solid and there are unexpected turns – the killer isn’t obvious until the end.

The interwoven storylines keep the story fresh, exciting, and engaging. If you are looking for a cozy mystery that is fast-paced (never a dull moment) and will keep you on the edge of your seat, I suggest you give Biscuits and Slashed Browns a try!
Incredible new addition to this series.

I love the people of South Lick and getting to know more about them in each book.
A quick pace drives this cozy mystery where Robbie’s nose for trouble, overactive sense of curiosity and loyalty to friends won’t allow her to rest until all seems peaceful again.
The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and through much of the book I felt like I was right there, visiting Pans ‘N Pancakes, and it made me hungry.
I literally may have gained a few pounds. I think I could smell those maple biscuits and well hash browns are one of my favorite things to eat so seeing that cover just had me drooling!

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.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews
I was enthralled from the beginning and it kept my attention throughout. I was surprised by the killer’s motive in this one.
~Melina’s Book Blog
This series continues to give us puzzling mysteries filled with delightful characters and a charming setting – exactly what a cozy mystery should have.
This had been an interesting read, where murder was the main dish and everyone had a motive.
I found it very easy to relate to the characters in ‘Biscuits’; this is probably because I see the same kind of small town-folk at ‘Don’s Country Store’ about half a mile away from my house. And don’t get me started on the gossip! *lol*
Robbie is one of the sleuths that always tops my list, she is smart and can work hard to stay out of trouble. Robbie has made such a life for herself that it is a calming point of the books to read, she has a flare for her shop and making dreams come true.
I found this mystery especially interesting because I didn’t see the ending coming at all! It definitely had an interesting twist!

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?
