Image of Do Or Diner: A Comfort Food Mystery

The first Comfort Food mystery is a real treat! Well plotted, it’ll keep you guessing right up to the final chapter. Trixie’s involvement as an amateur sleuth is well motivated, and her witty sense of humor makes her instantly likable. Her dynamic relationship with the local sheriff makes the plot sizzle.

When Trixie Matkowski buys her aunt’s upstate New York diner, she expects a new start in a quiet lakeside town. But when the local health inspector is poisoned in her diner, rumors start to circulate that she’s a murderer. Trixie’s once-busy diner suddenly has more staff than customers. Sheriff Ty Brisco soon realizes that Trixie isn’t the culprit, but the suave ex-Texan isn’t moving fast enough for Trixie. She begins her own sleuthing to find out who tampered with the health inspector’s plate of the daily special before her diner goes bankrupt. (OBSIDIAN, Aug, 304 pp., $7.99)
