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.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy | 2/18/2014

    " Wisconsin author tells a murder of a friend and the foibles surrounding the ficticious town of Brookhills which is much like the Brookfield we are all so familiar with in these parts! Sandy Balso worked at the old Firstar back in the day as did I and found some of her references interesting! Was a good read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 2/17/2014

    " Gave the book a 4.5/5.0, read it some time ago, don't remember much about the book even though I rated it pretty high. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanne | 2/5/2014

    " A light and breezy murder mystery where the owner of a new coffee shop helps solve a hometown murder. First everyone in the town will become a suspect. A fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanne | 2/4/2014

    " This was a fun light little mystery with engaging characters - and the friends uncover all sorts of unsavory goings-on in their search for the truth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 2/2/2014

    " This is a good series, whether you are a coffee drinker or not. I like her main characters, and it's just a good quick read. Looking forward to #2 in the Maggy Thorsen series... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 1/20/2014

    " First book in the series. Entertaining; unexpected ending. Good start. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 1/13/2014

    " I decided to spring for this one (on sale via an Audible promotion) as I liked Karen Savage's narration of a similar book: Getting Sassy. This one I found a bit flat, and the coffee details became irritating after a while. Doubt I would've stuck through a print reading, but Savage is a good fit for the protagonist here, although she needs to slow it down by at least 50% ... it's as though she's trying to get the book to be as few minutes as possible for a goal! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Whitney | 1/11/2014

    " A quick, cute book. I had a good time with it, but it didn't challenge my brain at all. Which was actually quite nice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janice | 1/4/2014

    " This is a cozy mystery which reads fast and has several things going on at the same time. It is fun to see another female sleuth trying to find an answer to the death in her own coffee shop! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shirley | 12/30/2013

    " Nice cozy so I will read more from this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Candace Davidson | 12/2/2013

    " I really enjoyed the suspense and humor of this mystery book. I can't wait to read the next in the series to see if holds up to my expexctions. I prefer to read mysteries with humor. I think it makes it a better read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nell | 11/25/2013

    " Unexpected twists and turns. This mystery was more complex than it seemed at first. Nominated for two best mystery awards. I guessed the killer several times, eventually I got it right - sorta. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sineadm | 10/28/2013

    " Engaging read, the story builds and twists and turns without making you wonder if you got lost. Perfect for a few rainy afternoons on the sofa "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 MB | 10/25/2013

    " Reminded me a lot of Joan Hess' Clare Malloy books, although without all the wisecracks. (It was fairly obvious to me who the murderer was--I guessed about 25% of the way in.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcia | 10/15/2013

    " First in the Maggie Thorson coffee shop mystery series. All the requisite elements for a good cozy--small town, mysterious death, amateur sleuth. I'll continue reading this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christa | 9/22/2013

    " Too mant characters to keep track of. Plenty of red herrings, so when the real killer finally came out, I was left wondering what I had missed. May read the next in the series, but if that doesn't catch me, I'm done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzanne Parrott | 7/6/2013

    " Cozy Murder Mystery. Once you read one, you'll read them all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 6/29/2013

    " This was quite a good mystery--it was well crafted, suspenseful, and the ending was a real suprise! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda | 2/22/2013

    " This was a new author for me. I really enjoyed the smooth writing style. i had coffee cravings while reading this book. I was surprised who committed the murder. I plan to try and read the rest of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Moondance | 11/20/2012

    " The murder of one partner in Maggy's new coffe house on opening day almost makes it closing day. Good cozy with small town politics, Peyton Place values and a brooding sheriff. 3.5 stars "
