Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The Maggy Thorsen series, with its coffee-themed titles (Grounds for Murder; Bean There, Done That; Triple Shot; etc.), reaches book number eight. Maggy, amateur sleuth and co-owner of a Wisconsin coffee shop, is in Florida attending a conference for crime writers in the company of her sheriff-boyfriend, Jake, who’s a speaker at the conference. When a reenactment of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express turns deadly, Maggy is determined to get to the bottom of things, even if it means putting her own safety at risk. In keeping with its lighthearted title, the book is an appealing, gentle mystery, a cozy with a shot of Christie. Needless to say, the book will be a hit with series fans, but readers of similarly themed novels from writers such as Mary Daheim (the Bed-and-Breakfast mysteries) or Kerry Greenwood (the Corinna Chapman series) should also be steered in Maggy’s direction. --David Pitt

Review

A first person narrative depends largely on how well you like the narrator...and I liked Maggy. Beyond a strong sense of curiosity and intuitiveness, which most amateur detectives need, she's mostly kind and funny, but she can become a bitch on wheels (pardon the pun) when called for. There's certainly enough danger and more than enough suspects to keep us entertained and I particularly enjoyed the list of characters in the front of the book, along with a drawing of where the various cars were located on the train.
--Joseph Scarpato, Jr., Mystery Scene Magazine


Balzo’s exciting eighth mystery (Publishers Weekly)

“A nicely hewn homage to Agatha Christie’s iconic mystery" (Library Journal)

"An appealing, gentle mystery, a cozy with a shot of Christie". (Booklist)
