Triple Shot by Sandra Balzo: A Great Read: In A Nut Shell!

In Triple Shot, Maggie Thorsen and her BBF, Sarah Kingston have a nonstop time of it in the coffeeshop, Uncommon Grounds. They discover that the coffee shop was once a hangout for the mob with a connection to her friend Tien grandfather​ killed in a shot out between the mob and FBI, a ‘secret room’ the old mob use to use, a hint of unfound money they might have left behind, bodies still piling up and Sarah is  a murder suspect. (Sort of like Geraldo Rivera’s mystery of Al Capone’s vault, but with a much, much better plot.) Add to this mix, Maggie has to deal with out of towners showing up in Brookhills running about stirring it all about and not to forget about another woman who tries to horn in and finger that buttery leather jacket Maggie so loves. Speaking of Pavlik, he mood is so warm and loving in the book!
In Triple Shot, Maggie’s fun sense of humor, a hallmark ofSandra Balzo‘s character, keeps you entertained and the story moving with scenes. Maggie doesn’t share all her thoughts with her fellow characters… just with me, (Okay, and you.) In this one, Maggie imagines Pavlik thinking of their relationship: ‘How the hell did I get myself involved with this broad? It’s like I’m Lassie, she’s Timmy, and every day is a new well!’
This is my favorite Maggie Thorsen mystery written skillfully by Sandra Balzo. Maggie is one of the strongest characters I know. Well… as well as a reader can know a fictional character, that is. Triple Shot has everything I love in a good book.
