Here's a tip: if your ex-husband's mistress-cum-missus asks for your help in proving that he cheated on her while he was married to you, just say no. And, whatever you do, don't invite her in for a cup of coffee...
"Wine?" coffeehouse owner Maggy Thorsen offers, moving aside reluctantly to let the home-breaking Rachel into her living room and her life. When the new Mrs. Thorsen disappears that same evening, Maggy finds herself embroiled in a murder investigation involving Rachel's hotelier family - Milwaukee's answer to the Hiltons.
Torn between her desire to see her former husband fry and her need to protect their son's college fund, Maggy decides to search out the truth, both about Rachel and the other other woman.

Karen Savage does a great job - this book has everything - mystery,comedy and a lil love interest -Gotta love that
"America's answer to Christie"
A big claim to make in that headline, but how else do you describe a busybody detective in a story with twists and turns a plenty, where every character is hiding something and there are plenty of false trails to follow.
The wit and humour in the story is perfectly captured by both Balzo and Savage, as is the drama and tension, long may these two continue their working relationships over Maggie Thorson
