Remember that song?

by Beth Brickner from the Dinner Club Mysteries
      by Linda Wiken

Beth Brickner here. I’m really pleased to be visiting Killer Characters as I don’t often get the chance. Running my own coffee shop/bistro eats up most of my days, although I always make sure I have time for my Culinary Capers Dinner Club. You’re more used to hearing from J.J. Tanner. She’s our newest member and we’re having great fun enticing her even further into the whole foodie experience. But that’s not what I wanted to share with you today.

Today is the ninth anniversary of the opening of Cups ‘n Roses. That’s my shop and I’ll bet you can guess who my favorite rock group was way back when. Yes, I know I’m dating myself but the other clue is, this is my second career. I opened the shop after retiring from teaching, my last few years as a high school music teacher. I loved it but it can be exhausting. Not that running Cups ‘n Roses is any easier. But it’s my passion.

Lately, I’ve been having some issues with petty theft but J.J. is on the job….so that’s another story. Or, you can read all about it in Roux the Day, the latest book in the Dinner Club mysteries.

For now, I’ll savor the memories of opening up my own business with my favorite music playing all day long, and a fresh rose on every table. Happy Anniversary to me!

Do you have a music group that takes you back in time, the minute you hear it?
