Nacho Average Murder –
Country Store Mystery #7

The Country Store Mysteries feature Robbie Jordan and Pans ‘N Pancakes, her country store restaurant in fictional South Lick, Indiana. Edith Maxwell writes this series as Maddie Day.

In Nacho Average Murder (June, 2020), Robbie Jordan is temporarily leaving Pans ’N Pancakes, her country store in South Lick, Indiana, to visit Santa Barbara, California—where wildfire smoke tinges the air, but a more immediate danger may lie in wait  . . .

The book made the cut for Most Anticipated Crime Books for summer 2020 from Crime Reads  – and is only one of two cozies among the eighty books on the list!

Maddie talked about Nacho Average Murder and writing culinary cozies on the nationally syndicated NPR show, “Under the Radar with Callie Crossley.” Listen to the show here or find it on the show’s NPR podcast for August 2, 2020.
