Publisher's Summary

Maggy's heart, uncharacteristically, is swelling with optimism. Sure, her original Wisconsin coffeehouse, Uncommon Grounds, was destroyed in a freak early May blizzard.

Maggy and Sarah hope to piggyback the grand reopening of Uncommon Grounds on the media coverage of Dedication Day for the train's two terminal points. Maggy even digs deep into her development budget and commissions a giant inflatable Uncommon Grounds coffee cup for the celebrations.

Great dialogue

Love the reader. She has a gift of voices. I love Maggy and Sarah's snarky comments. Also like the quirky characters like Christy. This is the second time I've listened to Sandra Balzo's books.
