Quotes & Awards

  • “Coyle…lavishly details an ethnically diverse New York City in her lively eleventh coffeehouse mystery featuring Clare Cosi.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Coyle is not sitting back with the eleventh entry (after Murder by Mocha) in her popular series.  She has taken the coffeehouse on the road, cleverly incorporating the food truck fad and introducing fresh new characters. Newcomers to the series can easily pick up the story line. A collection of astonishingly varied and drool-inducing recipes is included.”

    Library Journal

  • “Fans of the Coffee House series will savor another serving of Clare’s pluck as she deals with her ex-husband, her imperious ex-mother-in-law, and her current beau, a police officer.”

    Booklist

  • “A foodie’s delight, packed with information on coffee and desserts, along with appended recipes and a satisfyingly rich mystery.”

    Kirkus Reviews

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 2/19/2014

    " OK, I've read two of Cleo Coyle's books before and consider them mystery "cozies" on the order of food related mystery writers like Joanna Fluke or Diane Mott Davidson and they've been fun and fast reads. Usually, I get them from the library, as I don't want to west my audible.com credits on "beach reads," but since audible gave me a free credit when they messed up my account the other day, I decided to download this. I would have given it a 3 or maybe even a 3+, but the narrator's voice was intensely grating! As is usual, you have to suspend belief and how anyone could get herself into these situations, but then I don't expect a cozy to require my brain to do much efforting! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patty Moody | 2/7/2014

    " Always love reading this series. This one didn't fail me either! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mathilde | 2/6/2014

    " I struggled with whether to give this 3 or 4 stars. I have read most of the books in this series and I liked this one but didn't love it. I had no problem putting it down and it took me a long time to read. This book overall is typical for the series but just didn't grab me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan Lashomb | 1/16/2014

    " A combo murder mystery and foodie book. But not a page turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy | 7/3/2013

    " very formulaic with her previous books. but if you enjoy formulaic serials (which I do), then consider this installment worth the wait. if only I could spend an afternoon at the Village Blend and Clare, the Coffee Lady solve mysteries. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally Smith | 6/26/2013

    " Another great coffeehouse mystery. The sleuth is the manager of a coffee shop in Greenwich Village, NYC. This book also has scrumptious recipes for various muffins, etc., which go with coffee. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin Bailey | 6/8/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 8/27/2012

    " While I enjoy all of the books in the series, one detail missed the mark on this one. "Registered Dietitian" is a trademarked professional credential, similar to a Registered Nurse. Note that there is no "c". "

    " As I always do I loved this book. Great read! Great Coffee Recipes! Thank you Cleo Coyle! "
