Review: Last Diner Standing by Terri Austin
Last Diner Standing by Terri L
Austin is the second book in the “Rose Strickland” mystery series.
Publisher: Henery Press, December 2012
Rose Strickland is having a blue Christmas. Her
friend is arrested for attempted murder, her sexy bad guy crush is marked by a
hit man, and her boss is locked in an epic smackdown with a rival diner.
Determined to save those she loves, Rose embarks on an investigation more
tangled than a box of last year’s tree lights. With her eclectic gang at the
ready, Rose stumbles across dead bodies, ex-cons, chop shops, jealous girlfriends,
jilted lovers, and a gaggle of strippers in a battle for freedom she might not
There’s no sophomore slump here in
the second book starring spitfire Rose Strickland. When her friend is jailed,
Rose knowing she is innocent sets out on a course using any means necessary to
free her friend including breaking and entering and allying herself with a
person of nefarious distinction. This fast-paced and action-filled story kept
me plowing through the pages as fast as I could because I had to know what
happens next in this thrilling and riveting drama. When the chips are down,
Rose is there and I was rooting for her as she took on everything thrown at her
to help her friend. This is a great read and I’m looking forward to the next
book with Rose and her friends in this terrific series.
