Description

When a freak spring snowstorm destroys her beloved coffeehouse, Uncommon Grounds, Maggy Thorsen resolves to reopen. With her best friend, Sarah, as an ally, they find the perfect spot right near the train station—and lucky for Maggy that she's just in time for the opening of a new commuter route. Seems things are finally looking up for the amateur sleuth and barista extraordinaire! But then Sarah's uncle dies under suspicious circumstances...and Maggy's instinct tells her that his death was no accident. And when there are more suspicious "accidents," Maggy must uncover the link between the deaths...or she may just never be able to reopen Uncommon Grounds!

      • bioText: Sandra Balzo turned to mystery writing after twenty years in corporate public relations, event management and publicity. Triple Shot, her seventh Maggy Thorsen coffeehouse mystery, was just released, and Sandy's second series, Main Street Mysteries, debuted in April with Running on Empty. The books, set in the popular vacation destination of North Carolina's High Country, will alternate with the Maggy Thorsen mysteries. Heaven's Fire, about a fireworks show gone badly wrong, was released directly to Kindle with excellent reviews. Balzo's novels have been nominated for both the Anthony and Macavity awards and received starred reviews from Kirkus and Booklist. In addition to her books about coffee-maven Maggy Thorsen and displaced journalist AnnaLise Griggs, Balzo writes short stories, two of which have been published in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, winning the Macavity, Derringer and Robert L. Fish awards. Those psychological thrillers, along with a third original story, are available on Kindle in The Grass is Always Greener and Other Stories.Balzo has handled publicity for three Bouchercons (World Mystery Conventions), as well as the International Association of Crime Writers, and has served a national board member of Mystery Writers of America. A native of southeastern Wisconsin, she currently splits her time between Florida and the High Country of North Carolina. And roots for the Green Bay Packers.www.sandybalzo.com

        February 8, 2010
        Maggy Thorsen, the proprietor of Uncommon Grounds, finds that rebuilding her coffee shop in the “Old Brookhills” section of Brookhills, Wis., can be murder in Balzo’s witty, smoothly plotted fifth caffeine cozy (after 2009’s Brewed, Crude and Tattoed
        ). When Maggy’s real estate agent friend, Sarah Kingston, inherits the Old Brookhills depot, Sarah proposes to make the charming depot the shop’s new home—and become Maggy’s partner. Kornell Eisvogel, the obnoxious husband of the depot’s previous owner, threatens trouble until he stalls his car on the tracks just in time to meet the 8:15 commuter train. Kornell’s son, a remodeling contractor, soon pitches in as third partner. But someone doesn’t want the coffee shop to be reborn. Inexplicable accidents, Sarah’s arrest, and yet another death hamper the process. Despite warnings from Jake Pavlik, her county sheriff honey, Maggy is determined to track down the culprit. Fans of sassy, lighthearted whodunits will be satisfied.
