Brash, sassy Maggy Thorsen, amateur sleuth and owner of a Milwaukee coffee shop, is back in another high-speed adventure. Her bitter divorce still rankles, even after all this time, so she is shocked when her ex-husband Ted’s new trophy wife, Rachel, drops by the coffee shop and asks Maggy to help her find evidence that Ted is cheating on her.
I find myself going through all the Maggy Thorsen books I can find, they are that enjoyable. Again, I did not see the ending until Maggy figures it out in the end. I love the way Balzo makes you wonder if anyone that Maggy trusts is really the murderer. The only thing to say is that if she were a real person, she would either have to be super nice or just a real sucker to help out her ex’s new wife.
