She has also added some intriguing characters to the mix. Two things that I greatly enjoy combined into one! I would love to give this book a higher ranking, but the editing mistakes in this book are too many to count! Late that evening, Trixie is awakened by a clap of thunder, but the next one she hears sounds like a gunshot. There isn't any unnecessary drama and there is always a happy ending. It introduced readers to the small town of Sandy Harbor and to new cozy mystery heroine, Trixie Matkowski and her diner, the Silver Bullet. The mystery has lots of details and plot lines that are tied together. On top of the annoying nature of the character, the plot was only ho-hum, focusing not on the mystery but instead largely on the diner and the meals that people were fed there, Trixie mooning about Ty, Trixie pouting because she did not get her own way, and Trixie's impulsive actions; actually, her impulsive actions hint more toward sociopathy more so than basic passive-agressiveness, but I would have to read more to see if the actions were more than just hints and one book in this series was way more than enough. She is seeking the comfort of a familiar place after a divorce from the dastardly Deputy Doug.
The setting is not far from me so it was interesting A day after checking in to Trixie's cottage's a reclusive writer is murdered. Not much has changed—there are still vinyl booths at the Silver Bullet Diner, families eating home-cooked comfort food, and days of swimming in the lake. The earlier murder was of a 17 year old whom Trixie idolized when she was 10. At least I never heard it from my Dad, anyway. There was enough redirection to keep me thinking. Another reason that I could not read any more books in this series was that it seemed like Trixie and Ty were going to end up together in later books.
I really like this series, almost as much as I love comfort food. One of the cottage residents is found dead, and Trixie suspects the crime might be linked to an unsolved disappearance in the picturesque town's past. As Trixie works with Deputy Ty Brisco to solve both mysteries, their shocking discoveries will shake up the small town. As Trixie works with Deputy Ty Brisco to solve both mysteries, their shocking discoveries will shake up the small town. She is so determined to find the killer herself that she puts herself in dangerous situations without thinking about her own safety.
This time someone is murdered in one of the cottages which is bad for business and everyone cancels. As Trixie works with Deputy Ty Brisco to solve both mysteries, their shocking discoveries will shake up the small town. Readers who like the genre and those who are looking to start into it would probably love this one! I cannot believe I finished this book. Then some kids were climbing the rocks along the shoreline and were investigating a cave and found a body. Her ex, also a deputy, left her for a younger, perkier girl. I am looking forward to more in this series, as it is one of my favorites.
Trouble starts when a decade old mystery is uncovered at the beach and leads back to those very same cottages. Deputy Ty sounds like a great guy, and Trixie is enjoying getting to know him and helping him solve murders. We disagreed occasionally but always had each others back no matter what. The coroner is able to identify the body as that of Claire Jacobson. I could almost smell the delicious smells coming from the Silver Bullet, even though the majority of the mystery focused on the lake side cottages that Trixie is renting. She is awakened that night by thunder but the next sound she hears is a gun shot sh e investigates and finds David dead and his cabin ransacked it is up to her to try to find out how the two murders are connected as her business is at stake.
In the interests of full disclosure, I won an autographed copy of this book from a book blog the book arrived with a personal note from the author tucked inside, which was a treat with the expectation I give it an honest review. I think I will try that easy pulled pork recipe and impatiently wait for the next book in this wonderful series! I do these reviews on my own in my own words. Wenger knows how to draw it all out and make the reader yearn for more when it's over. But the only thing more demanding than serving up piping-hot comfort food twenty-four hours a day is getting to the bottom of a double homicide. I really like this series, almost as much as I love comfort food. Will Trixie be the next victim? Trixie has taken over the Silver Bullet Diner on the shores of Lake Ontario in upstate New York from her aunt after her uncle dies. Can Trixie track down the killer or has she finally bitten off more than she can chew? Another thing about these books are that they are lighthearted and just plain fun.
Wenger has plotted a fantastic mystery linking a cold case to a new one. I usually figure it out halfway through but not this time. And when word gets out that she's on the case, Trixie's in trouble--after all, the murderer won't spare her life just because she makes a killer corned beef sandwich. Reading this story made me feel like I was really there, experiencing everything the characters were experiencing. Of course she has handsome Deputy Ty Brisco to help. The diner staff are still on as recurring characters along with some of the townsfolk.
Then some kids were climbing the rocks along the shoreline and were investigating a cave and found a body. Trixie is a smart and sassy sleuth and takes crap from no one- not even the handsome detective who she has no intention of catching feeling for. Wenger knows how to describe things in such a way that the reader feels like they are right there with the characters sorting it all out. As Trixie works with Deputy Ty Brisco to solve both mysteries, their shocking discoveries will shake up the small town. I cannot wait to read the next one.
The setting is not far from me so it was interesting to figure out the locations. A second helping of Murder is the second book in the comfort food mystery series. The majority of pages are undamaged with minimal creasing or tearing, minimal pencil underlining of text, no highlighting of text, no writing in margins. Trixie investigates with her maybe love interest Deputy Ty Brisco. One of the cottage residents is found dead, and Trixie suspects the crime might be linked to an unsolved disappearance in the picturesque town's past. As Trixie works with Deputy Ty Brisco to solve both mysteries, their shocking discoveries will shake up the small town. It had, murder, suspense, and laughter.
