The Fiesta Burger Murder by Rosie A. Point

Father's day I read a first in series by Rosie A. Point called The Fiesta Burger Murder. This book was sent to me for review and is out on July 4th.  While the cover doesn't scream cozy mystery it does look darn good and was a very good mystery.  Christie Watson is the main character, impulsive, inquizitive and on sabbatical from her job as a police officer in Boston. Coming home to her best friend's house after years of being away and under duress, this break is not at all what she is looking forward to but is exactly what she needs. I think this will be a very good series and one to watch for!

Boston Homicide Detective, Christie Watson, wants nothing less than to bury her head in the sand in her hometown, Sleepy Creek, Ohio. Placed on sabbatical for a little ‘over-enthusiasm,’ Chris has to stay out of trouble or risk losing her job for good, and Sleepy Creek, with its clapboard homes and peaceful milieu, seems just the place to do that. But returning to Sleepy Creek means facing the one cold case she’s never solved: her mother’s murder. The past becomes the least of her worries, however, when a man is murdered in her best friend’s back yard. Griselda, awesome human being all-round and owner of the local Burger Bar – serving scrumptious delights like the Mexican Fiesta Burger – is the prime suspect. To make matters worse, the handsome detective in charge of the case won’t quit asking questions or drop the icy professionalism whenever Chris counters with her own. Det. Watson can’t let this one slide – sabbatical or not, she won’t let her friend wind up behind bars for a crime she didn’t commit. Equipped with her cop skills, and that thirst for truth, she sets off to solve the murder before it’s too late.

  1. Thanks for sharing your post. Sounds like a good book.

  2. The title is weird though, but the story sounds good and it could be a good catch to read. I am not into mystery reading but I will go for this one because you have reviewed it well.
