Sandra Balzo Grounds for Murder
Tuesday , November 6 • 7:00 p.m. reading • Brookfield
Brookfield author Sandra Balzo brings Maggy Thorsen, star of the Uncommon Grounds, back for another round. When coffeehouse owner Thorsen is dragooned into emceeing the barista competition (think “Iron Chef,” but with coffee) at the industry’s competitive trade show, she fears nothing good will come of it. Sure enough: The morning of the finals, Maggy discovers the body of her chief rival and conference organizer, Marvin LaRoche, under the trophy table. Finding herself not only the fill-in conference coordinator, but also chief suspect, Maggy must track the murderer, save her coffeehouse and, if she has some spare time, heat up her love life.
I keep forgetting to mention that my Aunt Sandy has a new mystery novel out. She's doing a reading and signing at the Brookfield Schwartz Books. If you read her first novel Uncomon Grounds, you know she's a damned good writer. So come check it out and pick up an autographed copy before she becomes even more famous! Or buy one from Amazon, if you'd rather.
