A Cup of Jo by Sandra Balzo

My latest audiobook is book 6 in the Maggy Thorsen coffeehouse mystery series by Sandra Balzo, A Cup of Jo.

Maggy’s heart, uncharacteristically, is swelling with optimism. Sure, her original Wisconsin coffeehouse, Uncommon Grounds, was destroyed in a freak early May blizzard. But, thanks to friend and new business partner, Sarah Kingston, a perfect location for its successor has been found in a quaint Brookhills railroad station recently revitalized by the creation of a commuter-rail connection between the old depot and the city of Milwaukee, fifteen miles east.

Maggy and Sarah hope to piggyback the grand reopening of Uncommon Grounds on the media coverage of Dedication Day for the train’s two terminal points. Maggy even digs deep into her development budget and commissions a giant inflatable Uncommon Grounds coffee cup for the celebrations. All seems perfectly poised for the great day, until Brookhills’ in absentia event manager, JoLynne Penn-Williams, finally makes her appearance – as a corpse in Maggy’s piece de resistance‚Ķ

  1. Howdy, Karen

    Last year, we remixed your LibriVox upload of Guadete uploading the remix to http://ccmixter.org/files/texasradiofish/40131

    This year, we donated the remix to ArtisTech to be included on their holiday CD entitled Season of Gratitude (http://tunetrack.net/ccmixter/releases/season-of-gratitude/lyrics/27551-gaudete/)

    The folks at ArtisTech sent all of the artists hard copies of the CD. If you would like your copy, send me me an email.

    You have a great voice.
    Thanks for sharing.
    We hope to remix more of your a capella works.

    Best regards,
    Galveston County, TX
