Here is another question about the identity of an author. This letter is from Paula:
“I bought a book in a Maine Mystery Bookstore by a local author-don’t remember name-storyline, woman had a coffee house which burnt down and she opens one in a old train station where her cousin tries to murder her….
… her friend (maybe a realtor) finds an old building near an old train station (which may be a stop again on the train schedule) that can be converted and her cousin (?) sets mysterious traps which cause accidents-maybe trying to murder her so he can have the building. Along those lines.
Does it sound familiar at all? I think the author was a local.”
If any of you have an idea of the author of this book, which might be set in Maine, please post a comment.
Thank you – in advance!

Is it Sandra Balzo’s Maggy Thorsen series? I reviewed one of them here if it gives you more to go on: http://www.howmysterious.com/2010/08/12/mysterious-and-caffeinated-roast-mortem-and-a-cup-of-jo/
Sounds like Sandra Balzo to me, I really like these mysteries.
