Grilled for Murder by Maddie Day is the second book in the Country Store Mystery series. Robbie Jordan, the owner of the quaint Pans N Pancakes country store and restaurant, in South Lick Indiana, is back! In this story Robbie finds herself smack dab in the middle of another murder investigation when she stumbles across the body of Erica Shermer, a recently returned town local, the morning after she hosts Erica's Welcome Home party at Pans N Pancakes. To make matters worse, she finds the body in the front of her store murdered with what might be her missing cookware.

As with the first book in the series, Flipped for Murder, we are served another compelling mystery mixed with intriguing subplots and complex lovable characters. Well, all the characters with the exception of the murder victim, who wasn’t liked by many people, making for a plethora of suspects sprinkled throughout the story. And I must say, I had inklings of who I thought the murderer was, but I didn't peg the "whodunit" of this story.

I think my favorite part of this series, and the most enduring to me, is that I can see myself walking into Pans N Pancakes, sitting down and being served a heaping plate of biscuits and gravy from Robbie herself. And on the way out of the store I might just purchase a trinket or two for my own personal kitchen! Don't forget to check the back of the book for some delicious recipes to try in your own kitchen. Overall, Grilled for Murder is another scrumptious morsel of a book and I can't wait to get my hands on the next in this series!
