Christmas Scarf Murder book cover

Christmas Scarf Murder (September, 2022), includes Maddie Day’s novella, “Scarfed Down.”

It’s beginning to taste a lot like Christmas at Pans ‘N Pancakes, as twelve days of menu specials dazzle hungry locals. But the festivities go cold the instant a diner dies while knitting a brilliant green scarf. With Aunt Adele tied into a murder investigation, it’s all on Robbie Jordan to find out who’s really been naughty or nice in South Lick, Indiana.



Reviews of Maddie Day’s “Scarfed Down”

“a twisted mystery … the scarf killed the victim in a different way… liked the 12 days of Christmas specials…a satisfying conclusion.”

Lola's Reviews

“kudos to Maddie Day for the most creative use of the scarf…well-plotted…exudes the delight of the Christmas season.”
