Best murder mystery of the year, and I should know!
Though I’m not a murder mystery reading regular, I plowed through a fair share of them this year as I researched how to write my own murder mystery. I was beginning to think they are either a less interesting version of life in a town called Mayberry or laden with too many wandering plot lines to hold my interest.
Sandra Balzo’s Uncommon Grounds broke the mould and put the mojo back in my murder mystery intrigue! The murder happens right away and the action never wanes. The main character is likeable. There’s a bit of a love story that keeps my rom com side happy. And although many murder mystery plots include a last minute save (where someone about to be murdered gets rescued as the powers-that-be clue in just in the nick of time to who the murderer is), this one had two last minute saves!
(By the way, my Kindle version of the cover was way better than this one. Sandra, if you read this, please change the cover back to the photographic one with an espresso and chocolate chip muffin!) (less)
