    Hilarious Hijinks in a Thrilling Mystery

    This delightful & funny mystery is fast-paced with wonderful characters and a quirky plot. Rose Strickland, a down-and-out waitress, puts her life on the line when she dedicates herself to finding her missing stoner friend. Her unrelenting determination gets her caught up in an underground gambling ring filled with dangerously delicious bad guys.

    Using her sass, wits and a handy taser, Rose takes on the baddies in a fun, twisting plot that will keep you turning the pages! Terri L Austin's debut is a winner and I can't wait to read more Rose Strickland mysteries!

    I love mysteries, either historical fiction ones, or even cozy ones. Diners, Dives & Dead Ends was a very well written cozy mystery read, and I was just enthralled throughout. I think the characters were written pretty well, and I understand Rose, where she comes from, a wealthy family, but she wanted to go to a different college, than what her parents wanted, so she's on her own, making her own living as a waitress and taking night classes at a local college. She still has family issues, with, well especially with her Mom. As Rose is dealing with everyday life, her best friend goes missing, and Rose feels like its her mission to find him and we are then on a very interesting mysterious ride.  
    I felt that there were some details given, that I wanted to know more about. I found it interesting that there's no real main love interest. There are a few, and I know I had one in mind, that might, well, actually will definitely be seen as the bad guy, but I'm intrigued to see in book 2, if anything becomes of Rose and well that Guy you'll definitely read about; you'll know who I mean by the end of the story. Speaking of the ending, there's a crazy event that surprised me, and I'm still not sure what to think about it, as it just seemed so sudden, but I do think it brings Rose and that guy I mentioned, so I guess it blended well.
    The mystery propsect was overall very interesting and creative. It does seem like this specific was not over, maybe it's just me, but I feel there might be a more solution in book 2, and I look forward to reading it sometime :)
    My Rating: 4/5I say a PG-13 Rating (Some Mature Content & Language) 16-17+
