Diner Deeds Done Dirt Cheap is the first book in the Diner Short Story Mysteries series. These short stories are about 15-20 pages each and feature authentic diners around Massachusetts. The heroine, Willow, has Asperger’s, which is part of the Autism Spectrum.
Author Lisa Shea goes to each diner personally to write up its sights, sounds, and aromas. That way you, the reader, can take a virtual vacation to these historic locations!
Visit Lisa’s webpages to see photos and write-ups of the diners. All of the Diner Mystery series contain no violence, no swearing, and no intimacy, so they are suitable for teens and up.
You can read the books one-by-one as they are released, or you can wait for the boxed sets to be published once the series gets enough books in it. It’s your choice! This first book is free. Right now there are 10 books in the series.
