 Maggy Thorsen refuses to give in as trouble brews again - When Maggy Thorsen’s coffee house, Uncommon Grounds, is virtually obliterated by a snowstorm, she and her friend Sarah resolve to reopen – and Maggy’s found the perfect spot near the train station, just in time for the opening of the new commuter route. But when Sarah’s uncle dies suddenly, in the first of a series of ‘accidents’, it’s clear that someone doesn’t want Uncommon Grounds to reopen. Maggy, however, has no intention of yielding . . .

About the Author:

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.

Review:

Milwaukee coffee house owner Maggy Thorsen seems to have perpetual bad luck. When her store, Uncommon Grounds, was destroyed in a blizzard, she vowed to reopen. When her business partner decided that she wanted out, Maggy enlisted her real-estate agent, Sarah Kingston, in the project. Then their choice of an abandoned railway depot for the location of the new store--a new commuter train would bring customers--turns potentially disastrous when a series of accidents that might not be accidents haunts the neighborhood. Someone does not want Uncommon Grounds to reopen, but Maggy and Sarah refuse to give up. A witty cozy with eccentric characters and a fast-moving plot. --Booklist, 1st February 2010

Maggy Thorsen, the proprietor of Uncommon Grounds, finds that rebuilding her coffee shop can be murder in Balzo's witty, smoothly plotted fifth caffeine cozy (after 2009's Brewed, Crude and Tattooed).  --Publishers Weely

Hilarious one-liners, quirky characters and a lively mystery will have readers begging for more. . . New readers will fall in love with the endearing/quirky characters while old readers will enjoy watching Maggy and friends start a new chapter. --Fresh Fiction
