Death Over Easy
Restaurateur Robbie Jordan is ready for the boost in business a local music festival brings to South Lick, Indiana, but the beloved event strikes a sour note when one of the musicians is murdered . . .
June’s annual Brown County Bluegrass Festival at the Bill Monroe Music Park in neighboring Beanblossom is always a hit for Robbie’s country store and café, Pans ‘N Pancakes. This year, Robbie is even more excited, because she’s launching a new bed and breakfast above her shop. A few festival musicians will be among Robbie’s first guests, along with her father, Roberto, and his wife, Maria. But the celebration is cut short when a performer is found choked to death by a banjo string. Now all the banjo players are featured in a different kind of lineup. To clear their names, Robbie must pair up with an unexpected partner to pick at the clues and find the plucky killer before he can conduct an encore performance . . .

Book Review by Bree Herron
I really enjoy this series. From the quaint shop to the characters there is never a dull moment in my mind while envisioning this story line. Robbie is back and ready for a grooving good time, till well… death enters. She was on cloud nine with the chance to expand into her B&B and then wham! Enter the death and mystery.
Now as far as mysteries go this one winds up the staircase and back. Let me tell you the scene with the murderer is epic. Truly, there should be an award for the best encounter and climatic scene in a mystery, this book has it. Your eyes might pop out! I couldn’t believe that it was this good, so I read it again. It didn’t disappoint. I have to say I was truly thrilled and delighted to read this book.
