SMFS Member Publishing News: Four Leaf Cleaver: A Country Store Mystery by Maddie Day/Edith Maxwell


Today is publication day for SMFS list member Edith Maxwell’s new book, Four Leaf Cleaver: A Country Store Mystery. Writing as Maddie Day, the book is published by Kensington Books. The book is available in print, audio, and digital formats, from Amazon and other vendors. This is the eleventh book in the series that began with Flipped For Murder.



The eleventh installment in Maddie Day’s deliciously popular Country Store cozy mysteries . . . It’s Saint Patrick’s Day in  South Lick, Indiana, but a holiday cooking competition at Robbie Jordan’s country store and restaurant Pans ’N Pancakes is put on the back-burner when a killer strikes.

There’s no mistaking Saint Patrick’s Day at Pans ’N Pancakes. Robbie may only be Irish by marriage to Abe O’Neill, but the shelves of vintage cookware in her southern Indiana store are draped with glittery shamrocks and Kelly-green garlands and her restaurant is serving shepherd’s pie and Guinness Beer brownies. The big event, however, is a televised cooking competition to be filmed on site.

Unfortunately, someone’s luck has run out. Before the cameras start rolling, tough-as-nails producer Tara O’Hara Moore is found upstairs in her B&B room, bludgeoned apparently by the heavy hilt of a cleaver left by her side. Now, not only does Robbie have a store full of festive decorations, she’s got a store full of suspects . . .
