Publisher's Summary

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 survive.

Rose and the Bad Boy

What made the experience of listening to Last Diner Standing the most enjoyable?

The narration remained excellent with a low key yet polished use of nuance and expression. As the second entry in the series, it also had more time to develop a storyline beyond merely introducing the large, diverse case of supporting characters. Each of the cast of characters appears to have a niche and how the author weaves a story that allows the characters to all "do their own thing" is quite remarkable. If you enjoyed the first Rose Strickland mystery you will enjoy this even more.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Henry, the bodyguard and chef, as one of my sons is well on his way to becoming just like him. I also feel a lot of empathy for Jacks, the people pleaser stuck with Rose for a younger sister.

What does Luci Christian bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrator managers to help keep everything moving forward and avoids building tension in this story which must be a comedy as much as a mystery.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

You have to be the tree!

Unarmed and dangerous in a comedy zone

Any additional comments?

Excellent use of a credit.
