"Austin's debut kicks off her planned series by introducing a quirky, feisty heroine and a great supporting cast of characters and...quite a number of interesting twists." - Kirkus Reviews

As a struggling waitress and part-time college student, Rose Strickland's life is stalled in the slow lane. But when her close friend, Axton, disappears, Rose suddenly finds herself serving up more than hot coffee and flapjacks. Now she's hashing it out with sexy bad guys and scrambling to find clues in a race to save Axton before his time runs out.

With her anime-loving bestie, her septuagenarian boss, and a pair of IT wise men along for the ride, Rose discovers political corruption, illegal gambling, and shady corporations. She's gone from zero to sixty and quickly learns when you're speeding down the fast lane, it's easy to crash and burn.

"With twists, turns and surprises that left me hanging on right to the end, I couldn't put it down. I absolutely can't wait to see what is in store for Rose and her quirky friends next." - Cozy Mystery Book Reviews
