Christine Wenger is one of the reputed authors from The United States who has written some very successful books based on the cozy mystery, romance, and suspense genres. She is particularly popular for writing the mystery series called ‘A Comfort Food Mystery’. Prior to the start of her writing career, author Wenger used to work in the department of criminal justice. She says that she has spent so many years in this field that she does not have a count now. While pursuing her master’s degree, author Wenger used continue working full time and this used to make her feel that she was going to school forever. But, when the time finally came, her hard work was rewarded and she earned her dual degree in Parole and Probation Studies and Sociology from the Fordham University. However, author Wenger feels that the knowledge that she obtained after spending numerous years in the night school did not prepare her for what she loved the most to do, that is writing cozy mystery and romance novels. The first book that she wrote in her career was a short story based on the western historical theme. It is titled as The Lady and The Cowboy, and was aimed at the beginner adult readers. Author Wenger had sold this book to the Laubach Literacy publishers. In the year 1998, the book was selected by the Public Library Association’s Publishers Liaison Committee as the one of the top books for the new adult readers. Author Wenger has stated that the biggest thrill of her life was receiving a call from Susan Litman from the Harlequin publication’s Special Edition in the year 2004, which was called as Silhouette publication at that time. A year later, her second book titled The Cowboy was published. After that, author Wenger wrote 8 more books for Harlequin. She is still associated with the publication and is expected to write a few more books for them. Her books based on the cowboys of the west and southwest indicate that she is very fond of them. Author Wenger is so much confident about her writings that she believes readers fall in love with her characters in less than 8 seconds.

Wenger has also written a couple of books set in New York’s Adirondack Mountains. In the year 2003, author Wenger started writing a new series of cozy mystery novels of ‘comfort food’. This series is set in a 1950s small town diner called The Silver Bullet. Other than writing novels of mystery and romance, author Wenger also likes to enjoy watching professional level bull riding as well as rodeo along with her beloved husband named Jim. She considers him to her most favorite cowboy. Along with Jim, she likes to wear the cowboy outfit and travel to numerous events in Florida, Las Vegas, Connecticut, as well as various other states. Due to their frequent traveling, author Wenger got the chance to meet a number of genuine, polite, and personable cowboys. This served as an inspiration for her to write her western novels. As for her comfort food series, she says that she has to do a lot of research work. For this purpose, she is required to visit many diners all over the United States, along with Europe, Asia, and Canada. Author Wenger knows that it is very hard for her to do all this, but she understands that the positive response and immense success that her novels get after their publication pay for all her hard work. Currently, author Wenger lives happily in Cicero, New York, along with her supportive family. She always remains involved in the events that help to encourage the aspiring authors and help them in improving their writing techniques.

The Comfort Food Mystery series written by Christine Wenger is comprised of 5 books altogether, which were released between the years 2013 and 2016. Its debut book was published under the title ‘Do or Diner’. The NAL publication released this book in the year 2013. Author Wenger has set the plot in Western New York, Upstate New York, and Sandy Harbor, New York, United States. The important characters shown in the book include Trixie Matkowski and Ty Brisco. As the story begins, Trixie is depicted as taking over the diner of her aunt. She pictures the same delicious foods and lakeside views of the small town diner where she used to spend her summers as a child. But, the beautiful scene turns ugly when a murder happens at the diner. Before taking over the diner, Trixie looked for a fresh start by staying away from her cheating ex-hubby. And when she gets a call from her aunt to return to Upstate New York and look after the famous family restaurant called Silver Bullet Diner, she agrees. But, it seems that she is out there to bite off more than she is able to chew. Trixie gets attracted towards a heartthrob resident of the town named Deputy Ty Brisco. At the same time, she faces a health inspection at the diner which goes on to become a nightmare for her. Someone purposely tried to spoil the things for her so that she could face trouble. Trixie looks determined to find that person and teach him a lesson. However, she becomes a hot target as that person tries to remove her permanently.

The second book in the series is titled as ‘A Second Helping of Murder’. The NAL publishers once again released this book in the year 2014. The plot begins showing Trixie Matkowski enjoying her time in near the shores of Lake Ontario by looking after the business of her family diner. But, things take an unpleasant turn when a death occurs in her proximity. Trixie learns that one of the residents in her neighborhood is discovered dead and she suspects that the death might be linked to one of the unsolved cases in the town’s past, related to a missing person. Trixie teams up with Ty Brisco and tries to solve the two mysteries. The discoveries that they come across during their investigation shocks them very much and also shakes the entire town. Also, when the news gets out that Trixie is working to solve the cases, she attracts an unwanted trouble for herself. The murderer thinks that she should be handled as soon as possible because she can cause problems for him through her interference in the case. But, she does not seem that easy to target.
