Maddie Day is another name Edith Maxwell writes under.
Her Country Store Mystery series has been a smashing success. Maddie Day’s more recent Cozy Capers Book Group series launched to readers excited about a series that takes place on Cape Cod.
Murder on Cape Cod, the series debut, is available in all formats.
It’s just after Memorial Day in Westham, Massachusetts. Business is still a little slow, but that doesn’t stop the weekly Cozy Capers book group from starting their summer reading list. As bicycle mechanic Mackenzie (Mac) Almeida walks home afterwards, she finds a body on the path behind her house. When it turns out to be murder, and her own half-brother is a prime suspect, Mac has to assemble more parts than a bike derailleur to find the real killer.
In Murder at the Taffy Shop, available now for preorder from Barnes & Noble, Cape Cod bicycle shop owner Mackenzie “Mac” Almeida and her mystery book club find a certain accusation of murder quite the stretch. Mac’s friend Gin has found herself in a sticky situation. After wealthy genealogist Beverly Ruchart is found dead outside Gin’s taffy shop, the candy maker becomes a person of interest. When it’s revealed that Beverly was poisoned the night Gin brought a box of taffy to a dinner party at Beverly’s house, she’s bumped to the top of the suspects list. It’s up to Mac and her Cozy Capers crime solvers to unwrap this real-life mystery. But this time they might have bitten off more than they can chew . . .
The book releases in March, 2020, in a Barnes & Noble paperback exclusive for one year, to go to wide distribution in winter, 2021.

Reviews of Maddie Day’s Mysteries:
(reviews for individual books are on those pages)
Robbie Jordan kicks as much butt as Jack Reacher…with way better food!
You’ll flip for this mouth-watering new series… a tasty mystery with a side of scenic country charm… a delicious read. The rolling hills of southern Indiana never looked so inviting—or so dangerous.
What a terrific debut! This deliciously clever cozy–set in a deceptively charming little town–is fresh, intelligent and delightful. A winner!
Day’s series debut provides some quirky characters and red herrings along with the … romantic interest and recipes.
