Sandra Balzo is an award-winning author of crime fiction, including eleven books in two different mystery series from Severn House--the Wisconsin-based Maggy Thorsen Mysteries and Main Street Murders, set in the High Country of North Carolina and featuring journalist AnnaLise Griggs.
Film rights for the Maggy Thorsen Coffeehouse Mysteries have been optioned toward development as a television series or movie. Garnering starred reviews from Kirkus and Booklist, Balzo's novels are recommended to readers of Janet Evanovich, Charlaine Harris, Harlan Coben, Joan Hess and Margaret Maron.
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. (Apr.)
