Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

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.)

From Booklist

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. --Barbara Bibel
