Death Over Easy: 02/16/22
Death Over Easy by Maddie Day and Laural Merlington (Narrator) is the fifth book in the County Store mystery series. Robbie Jordan is excited about the music festival. She's a fan of blue grass. Her restaurant is seeing an uptick in business and her newly opened B&B is booked.
But then the murders begin. As the bodies are found in the unincorporated area of the county, Robbie's forced to work with people she doesn't know and to her, don't seem as on the ball. To make matters worse, the authorities are eying Robbie's Italian father and his wife as possible suspects. To clear their names, she has to investigate yet again.
This mystery beyond the initial murder is a slow burn. There's a lot of waiting for Robbie et al to put together some pretty obvious clues. Granted, Robbie was distracted because her family was involved but in previous volumes she's been quicker on the uptake. I swear I spent two-thirds of this one groaning as I waited for characters to put the pieces together.
The sixth book is Strangled Eggs and Ham (2019).
