Trixie Matkowski has everything
running smoothly at the Silver Bullet Diner in Sandy Harbor,
New York. It has been several months since she purchased the
family business from her Aunt Stella. Tourist season will
soon be starting and the 12 cottages Trixie also owns will
soon be full with paying vacationers. In fact, Cabin 8 will
be occupied by David Burrows the next day. He insisted he
wanted only that cabin.
has been found in a nearby cave by some kids. The body is
identified as Claire Jacobson who has been missing more than
20 years. Trixie remembers that Claire had been very kind
to her. She also remembered that Claire’s family had
been renting Cabin #8 at the time. Mr. Burrows arrives and
checks into Cabin #8. He is a writer and it looks like he
plans on typing on an old fashioned typewriter. That night,
Trixie sees someone in the rain and then hears a car start.
She goes to investigate and finds the door to Cabin #8 open.
She goes inside and finds a very dead David Burrows on the
floor. The room has been tossed. Trixie decides to find the
murderer - even after hunky Deputy Ty Brisco tells her not
to meddle in a police investigation. Trixie had better be
very careful solving these murders. She could very well end
to ponder: Who put Claire Jacobson’s body in the cave?
Why does David Burrows insist on renting Cabin #8? Where is
the scrapbook that Trixie saw in Cabin #8? Is there a connection
between the two murders?
is such a fun series. I love how there is camaraderie between
the Silver Bullet Diner family. They are always pitching in
to help out Trixie. This is a fast-paced, well plotted read.
I found myself reading this book in one day. The author has
included several yummy recipes. The next serving of A Comfort
Food Mystery will be out in January 2015 – so look for
Diners, Drive-Ins and Death. If you like your mystery
with the daily special, then you should be reading A Second
Helping of Murder.
