Josie and Dr. Ted buy a house in Maplewood, Missouri in Fixing to Die, the ninth "Josie Marcus Mystery Shopper Mystery".
Maplewood is one of St. Louis' inner suburbs. It is the home of Schlafly Bottleworks, one of St. Louis' oldest microbrewers along with more than 400 other business. Small brick homes and tree lined streets are a trademark of living in Maplewood.
Josie’s remodeled midcentury modern kitchen is based on this kitchen renovated by Carrie Welch of Metamora, Michigan. Carrie blogged about her kitchen saga at Retro Renovation in 2011.
