In Triple Shot, Maggie Thorsen and her BBF, Sarah Kingston have a nonstop time of it in the coffeeshop, Uncommon Grounds. They discover that the coffee shop was once a hangout for the mob with a connection to her friend Tien grandfather killed in a shot out between the mob and FBI, a 'secret room' the old mob use to use, a hint of unfound money they might have left behind, bodies still piling up and Sarah is a murder suspect. (Sort of like Geraldo Rivera's mystery of Al Capone's vault, but with a much, much better plot.) Add to this mix, Maggie has to deal with out of towners showing up in Brookhills running about stirring it all about and not to forget about another woman who tries to horn in and finger that buttery leather jacket Maggie so loves. Speaking of Pavlik, he mood is so warm and loving in the book!
In Triple Shot, Maggie's fun sense of humor, a hallmark of Sandra Balzo's character, keeps you entertained and the story moving with scenes. Maggie doesn't share all her thoughts with her fellow characters... just with me, (Okay, and you.) In this one, Maggie imagines Pavlik thinking of their relationship: 'How the hell did I get myself involved with this broad? It's like I'm Lassie, she's Timmy, and every day is a new well!'
This is my favorite Maggie Thorsen mystery written skillfully by Sandra Balzo. Maggie is one of the strongest characters I know. Well... as well as a reader can know a fictional character, that is. Triple Shot has everything I love in a good book.

As she heads outdoors to investigate, she meets a reality television producer, actor etc. Maggie learns of an old Mafia connection to her little town, Brookhills, WI.
In this novel, we have lost treasures, dead bodies, and old FBI cases or are they that old? By the way, why are real estate agents being murdered?
This and more as you read this interesting cozy coffeehouse drama.
If that wasn't enough real estate agents begin to be murdered, and since Sarah owns her own real estate establishment that was not good. Blackness settles as Sarah's worker is killed, her body discovered in a room no one knew existed, and Sarah may well be one on the list of 'interesting people' in the case. Maggy, who seems to always be where dead bodies are, is thrown into the middle. Her boyfriend is none other than the Sheriff and now her partner and friend is a possible suspect in the murders. What a tangled weave is webbed!
I enjoyed this book. I liked the characters and felt the author did an excellent job at giving you enough insight on each to bring them to life. The local was very well described. I could see the town, the buildings, the coffee house clearly in my minds eye, making the story more real. Of course I especially liked Maggy, she was definitely a frisky woman, one who had overcome battles in her life yet charged forward. The mystery was well laid out, giving you hints along the way, but I have to tell you I really was not sure who done it! The ending had a few twists that surprised me. All in all it was a really good read and I'm pleased to recommend it.
