Death at a Diner (A Murder in Milburn #1) by Nancy McGovern

Death at a Diner

Kindle Edition, 208 pages
Published April 7th 2016 by McGovern Books (first published April 2016)

Goodreads synopsis: 
Nora Newberry has been working to make her dreams come true and finally, after 10 years, it's time! She’s moved back to her hometown of Milburn, Wyoming, and, together with her lifelong best friend, Raquel Madden, is opening the diner they've been planning since high school. Life couldn't be better...and it's time to celebrate!

Sadly, the celebration doesn't last long. Just three days before the diner is set to open its doors, Raquel is found murdered. And with no clear motive and little cooperation from the townspeople, Nora is thrown into a murder investigation that just may cause her to lose her own life.


4.5 stars

This is the first book in the Murder in Milburn series by Nancy McGovern.

After reading a previous book by McGovern, I decided to pick up this series on a whim. Sometimes you can’t take a series for granted that it is going to be full of fluff and misspellings. This series takes cozy writing seriously. It is intense. It is fun and it makes you sometimes not even like the main character. But then you come to love them again and root for their success.

This story is about Nora and Raquel who are life long friends and want to start a business together. Right before they can open their doors, Raquel is murdered and Nora is in a bad accident with her new boyfriend. Tensions just ramp up from there. Nora decides to dig into the murder investigation instead of trying to open the business they started. Without Raquel’s money, Nora is sure the business will fail and so she focuses on what she can control.

This is part of a ten or more book series that I bought on Kindle. Definitely enjoying it thus far. Good series to dig into.

If you love a good cozy mystery, check this one out. What a fun read!
