August 6: Judy is the randomly selected winner! Congratulations. And thanks to everyone for entering!
Lou Perlman here, from the Country Store Mysteries by Maddie Day (aka Edith Maxwell)
When I met Robbie Jordan, I was out on a thirty-mile bike ride with a few of my fellow grad
students from Indiana University. We stopped into Pans 'N Pancakes, her country store restaurant, and the rest is history. I helped her find her Italian dad, and in Maddie Day's next book, When the Grits Hit the Fan, she helps clear my name of murder! That's what friendship is all about.
It all started at one of our Sociology Department Friday night winter dinners in Robbie's store. A prof in the department is a pretty unpleasant guy, but when Robbie and I went snowshoeing the next morning, we sure as heck didn't expect to find him dead. And then...well, I'll let you read the story yourself next February.
But in the meantime, Maddie is giving away a copy of the first two books, Flipped for Murder and Grilled for Murder to one commenter here. Ask the author a question - any question! before August 5 at midnight, and you'll be entered in the drawing. Be sure to indicate your email address so she can find you.
And happy summer!
