|| Maggy Thorsen, cynic extraordinaire, has a few things to feel optimistic about lately. After her original coffeehouse, Uncommon Grounds, was destroyed in a freak May blizzard, Maggy and her best friend, Sarah Kingston, have found the perfect spot to relocate—right next to the new commuter train in Milwaukee. After successfully securing the spot, Maggy and Sarah plan to piggyback the city's celebrations for the train and re-open Uncommon Grounds on the same day. In fact, Maggy's feeling so positive, she even digs deep in her budget and hires a giant inflatable coffee cup to attract more notice to her grand reopening. All seems to be running right according to plan...until Maggy's event manager is found dead—and now Maggy must find the killer before the killer finds her!
