Publisher's Summary

A body in a pool of skim milk.
An unsavory discovery at any time, but especially inconvenient when the milk puddle is in front of the espresso machine the very morning you're scheduled to open your chic suburban coffee house, Uncommon Grounds.
AND the body is one of your partners, leaving you and your other partner - the one who's still alive - as suspects.
Which would all be bad enough, even if your husband HADN'T dumped you for his dental assistant, Little Miss Tooth de Lay, leading you to jettison your old life and invest what little you have left in Uncommon Grounds, which now appears - like your marriage - to be circling the drain.

fun little mystery

Sandra Balzo has a fun, quirky style to her writing, matching the voice work of Karen Savage perfectly keeping the story bright and full of life even during its darker and grittier moments. As a fan of Agatha Christie and Rex Stout myself, I feel much of what made their writing great is present here while still having a unique voice that engages on an emotive level as well as a reasoning one. the mystery is rich enough to keep you guessing while at the same time the solution makes sense and seems well foreshadowed in hindsight. I have read and enjoyed a number of other books featuring the intrepid Maggie Thorson but this is my first audio book featuring her and I must admit the performance of Karen Savage made a great experience even better and I will be listening to more by them both.
