Author Maddie Day Coming To the Get Cozy Book Nook

Author Maddie Day is coming to the Get Cozy Book Nook! We’re having a chat that will be posted here on February 22nd. Each post leading up to then will include tidbits about Day and her writing. Here’s some to get started with:

Maddie Day is the author of the super popular Country Store mysteries. The series centers around Robbie Jordan who runs the Pans ‘N Pancakes country store restaurant in fictional South Lick, Indiana. Each book in the culinary cozy series includes recipes to go along with Robbie’s adventures as she finds herself solving murders. Get started with the first book in the series Flipped For Murder. Her newest book in the series, Batter Off Dead is out this month.

What do you want to know about Maddie Day, the process behind writing cozy mysteries, or what’s next for protagonist Robbie Jordan? Submit your questions here by Friday at noon and I’ll be sure to include them when I talk with her that afternoon.

Stay tuned Friday for a preview of my conversation with Maddie Day!

Weekend Reading 8.12.21

It sure has been hot here in Southern Indiana (I live right across the border from Louisville), with temps in the 90s and humidity so thick it feels like you have to swim through the air. But the peaches are ripe, so it’s a good time to stay inside and eat peach cobbler and ice cream while reading a cozy mystery (starting Peachy Scream today.

I’ve been staying inside this week after spending last weekend moving our son to his new apartment, where he began his teaching career this week! I am one proud Mom, who is now using the vacated space for an office with my husband. There will still be room for an air mattress when our son comes to visit, so no worries there. Our daughter is settled where she is for now, so no more moving duties for us this year.

I’m having a little post-Olympics let down. I always love watching the Summer Games. It’s the only time I get to see water polo, artistic swimming, rhythmic gymnastics, and equestrian show jumping on TV. Now I’m back to watching episodes of Hometown and Fixer Upper on Discovery Plus (instead of actually working on my own house, which I should be doing, right after I see the reveal on this Craftsman style home).

My husband and I are going to try to catch the Louisville Ballet’s dance interpretation of Shakespeare at Shakespeare in the Park tonight. Then we have a weekend to ourselves (first in ages! squee!). I’m hoping to get to this cozy by Sunday after church.

What are your plans for this weekend? Leave a comment below and share what you’re up to and what you’re reading.
