By Abe McNeil, Robbie Jordan's boyfriend in the Country Store Mysteries by Maddie Day (aka Edith Maxwell)
Hey, there. Taking a little break from my job as a lineman with the electric company here in Brown County, Indiana to greet all you folks. Robbie's too busy over at Pans 'N Pancakes right now to write. Since I got a real warm spot in my heart for that woman, I told her I'd fill in.
We've been a number for a few months now, ever since that, uh, jerk of a Jim dropped her like she was a burnt-up sausage. A man shouldn't treat his woman like that, don't you agree? I 'm much too enamored of her can-do spirit, her gorgeous smile, and her super-smart brain to ever want to leave her, frankly. Not that I've popped the question or anything. We're taking it slow, enjoying each other's company, getting to know one another.
I'm not all that comfortable with her trying to solve crimes, though, mostly because it's darn dangerous. But hey, if she's involved, I'm involved and that's all there is to it. And this winter, who-ee, did we get entangled in one. I ain't revealing any secrets about the story when I tell you that ice storms are serious business, and you sure as heck don't want to get caught in one with a cold-blooded killer.
Ms. Day, the author, is over there waving her hand, reminding me to tell you the book comes out March 28. It won't be long now until you can read all about it yourself. And just for the fun of it, she's giving away an advance review copy of the book to one commenter before dawn tomorrow in Indiana! So make sure she can find you by email, allrighty? Okay, then, catch ya later.
