Edith Maxwell (also known as Maddie Day)
I’d like to break down the first two pages from Flipped for Murder, the first Country Store Mystery and my sixth published novel. It came out a scant two months ago from Kensington Publishing under the pen name Maddie Day.
Here’s the first paragraph:
My heart beat something fierce as the bell on the door jangled. It was make-or-break time. I’d been preparing for this day for weeks. I thought I was ready, but if I slipped up, I’d be in major hot water. Or financial ruin, as the case may be.
