Download Á Diner Knock Out (Rose Strickland Mystery, #4) á PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Businessmen dead bodies and a trail of drugsHunting down clues that lead too close to home Rose finds herself in the fight of her life Can she beat the killer to the punch before she gets knocked out for good. Diner Knock Out is amazing a knock out of a cozy mystery Diner Knock Out is the fourth book in Author Terri L Austin s Rose Strickland Mystery series Diner Knock Out can be read as a stand alone as far as the mysteries contained therein are concerned But to really understand all of the characters their interactions with each other and the references to past occurrences you really should begin at the beginning of the series The main character in Diner Knock Out is Rose Strickland She is the formerly pampered younger daughter of a wealthy upper class couple in Huntingford Missouri I say formerly because almost six years ago Rose took a stand against her parents wishes concerning the women s college they had chosen for her Rose refused to return for her sopho year wanting to transfer to a different college where she would be happier As a result of this rebellion her parents kicked her out of their house and cut off all financial support After Rose found a job waitressing at Ma s Diner and somewhere to live in a dinky studio apartment she enrolled in Huntingford s community college as a part time student She has been taking a class or two each semester for the past six years until now At the end of Book 3 Diner Impossible Rose is approached by another character with an intriguing proposal Police Officer Andre Thomas has just resigned from the force to become a private investigator He invites Rose to work part time for him as an apprentice PI during the two years it will take before she can get her own PI license Rose accepts the offer and will take the summer off from school while she only works at Ma s Diner and the Thomas Detective AgencyThe agency case that Rose and Thomas are working on as he trains her in police procedure concerns Ted Benson the husband of their client Camilla Benson Camilla thinks that her husband is cheating on her and has hired the agency to find out for sure I love how this case turns out I think you ll be very surprised at how Ted cheats It certainly surprised meRose s big case concerns Rob the MMA fighter and fight clubs When Rose is alone in the office she misrepresents herself as Andre s associate rather than an apprentice only able to work under his direct supervision to a new client who comes in with a missing person case and agrees to take the case The client admits he can t afford their fee but Rose still agrees When Rob s girlfriend tells Rose You can t say anything about the club Not to anyone The men in charge are serious about keeping it a secret By even discussing it we could all be in danger Rose almost tells Andre then about the case It s really lucky for Rose that Andre steps in when he does Just imagine the fireworks when Thomas finds out that Rose has taken on this case a pro bono case passing herself off as his associate no less I enjoyed watching Rose try to solve these mysteries with all the twists and turns in the case and encounter some rather odd people along the way By the way if you re ever offered a bottle of water containing fermented birch sap I d advise you to turn it down Rose says it tastes disgusting The suspense and the plot twists make Diner Knock Out fast paced and a uick read Author Terri L Austin s zany uirky characters and their antics make Diner Knock Out a fun read For example the utter chaos devastation and destruction in the diner caused by a team of Little Leagers is unbelievable and hilariousRose s bestie and fellow waitress Roxy has a new BFF which leaves Rose feeling jealous and left out Roxy is rather unconventional She has blue hair not pale blue but like cobalt blue and she often dresses in baby doll style with ribbons ruffles and sashes The scene when Rose and Roxy discuss their former BFF status and Roxy s reasons for finding a new BFF is sweet and poignantMa is trying to catch a man a new widower whose wife has just passed Ma almost eighty years old figures that she has been alone long enough since her husband died Ma must work uickly because Byron s a looker and relatively healthy a pacemaker and a bum knee For bait she is using her specialty chicken dish Chicken a la Ma a new bra pushup in black lace and chocolate lava cake Ma has stiff competition though in the much younger Sally Dawkins only 62 The outcome of this struggle for Byron s attention is uite amusingAs you can see Rose her friends and her co workers at Ma s Diner are so much fun to read about I enjoy reading about their hijinks capers and adventures just as much as the mysteries Author Terri L Austin has created a cast of uniue likable distinctive people ones whom I love to visit with in each new Diner entry in the Rose Strickland Mysteries I highly recommend Terri L Austin s Diner Knock Out to all cozy mystery fans especially those of us who have a thing about bad boy book boyfriends Diner Knock Out is fun entertaining and uniue all in all a great readNote I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of Diner Knock OutThe entire review is available on my blog Jane Reads
