Diners, Drive-Ins, and Death by Christine Wenger is the third book in the “Comfort Food” mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime, January 2015
For Sandy Harbor’s tastiest comfort food, venture to the Silver Bullet Diner. But head next door to the new drive-in theater if you have an appetite for murder. . .
Trixie Matkowski has a tall order to fill this fall. Aside from dishing out delicious fare at the Silver Bullet during peak fishing season, she’s helping her friend—Antoinette Chloe Brown, or ACB for short—open a drive-in movie theater in the vacant lot beside her diner. It’s just the thing to take ACB’s mind off Nick, her missing biker beau.
But their plans are fried after Nick’s body is discovered during the groundbreaking for the drive-in. And when the police connect the murder weapon to ACB, she becomes the prime suspect in eighty-sixing Nick. With the fate of her innocent friend and her business on the line, Trixie must make the guilty party pay up before someone else gets stiffed. . .
Another great visit to Sandy Harbor where once again Trixie busyness puts her on a search for a killer. I enjoyed how the mystery was set up with a nice pace that was easy to follow and kept me engaged in figuring out who the killer was, especially with those twists and turns the author peppered this whodunit with. Boasting a quirky cast of characters, good dialogue and a comfortable atmosphere, I look forward to the next book in this pleasantly charming series.
