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?

*I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

Incredible new addition to this series. Robbie has gotten comfortable running her country store by this point but things heat up as the Maple Festival moves into town with a murder and more. I was loving the descriptions going on throughout the book. Maddie does an excellent job of conveying the Hoosier spirit and culture. Since I love in Indiana it made me feel like this could be taking place in a town nearby as it reminded me of find memories of visiting a maple farm on school field trips growing up. The murder clues mixed in was a nice twist that have another layer to the story that was highly enjoyable. If you enjoy cozy mysteries with a culinary spin to them you really have to give this series a try. I absolutely loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.
