I am really enjoying this series. I wanted something light and fun to read so I read this 2nd book in the series as I enjoyed the first one.
I like this series due to the characters and the humor. Maggy Thorsen is the co-owner of Uncommon Grounds a coffee shop near Milwaukee Wi. She has been asked to be the M.C. for a barista contest at Java Ho which is a trade coffee convention/conference that is held annually. She is a natural for it with her outgoing personality. Right at the start of the book, she discovers the body of the leader of Java Ho under the trophy table. He owns a chain of coffee shops. He recently opened a shop near Uncommon Grounds after extracting information from Maggy. He is not a nice guy and has made many enemies so there are a lot of suspects. I did not have it solved until the author divulged who the murderer was. I suspected almost all of the suspects at times.
Characters from the first book are back. I enjoyed Sarah who is Maggy's best friend. She is an outspoken and is a take no prisoner type of personality. She is trying to break the nicotine habit. Caron plays a smaller role in this book. There were some new characters introduced and I hope several of them are in future books especially Jerome.
This series is going to become a go to read when I want to relax and escape. I enjoyed it very much
