My Nails and My Book Review - Grilled For Murder by Maddie Day


Title: Grilled For Murder
Series: Country Store Mysteries #2
Author: Maddie Day

Goodreads Summary: Robbie Jordan may have had reservations about the murder victim, but she still needs to turn up the heat on a killer if she wants to keep her new restaurant open for business…

In the charming small town of South Lick, Indiana, Robbie has transformed a rundown country store into the runaway hit Pans 'N Pancakes. But the most popular destination for miles around can also invite trouble. Erica Shermer may be the widow of handsome local lawyer Jim Shermer's brother, but she doesn't appear to be in mourning. At a homecoming party held in Robbie's store, Erica is alternately obnoxious and flirtatious--even batting her eyelashes at Jim. When Erica turns up dead in the store the next morning, apparently clobbered with cookware, the police suspect Robbie's friend Phil, who closed up after the party. To clear Phil and calm her customers, Robbie needs to step out from behind the counter and find the real killer in short order…

My Review: **I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review**

I LOVED this book. Robbie is a great main character. Something about the way she is written makes her feel like a real person, and her insecurities just make her feel even more real. The little southern phrases sprinkled through the book are some of the most amusing ones I have ever read. If you haven't read either one of the books in this series, you need to. They are definite must read books.

My Manicure: Can I just say that I am in love with this manicure? It is based on Robbie's love of crossword puzzles, and amazingly I have a crossword puzzle stamp. I started out with a base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White, and stamped using Sinful Colors Black On Black and Bundle Monster plate BM-416.



  1. I really enjoyed this book as well. Robbie is a wonderful main character. I love the manicure. It's a perfect compliment to the book.

  2. I love the manicure, too! So pleased you liked the book, Kelly.
