Clare’s grown very fond of Alfred Glockner, the part-time comic and genuinely jolly charity Santa who’s been using her coffeehouse as a place to warm his mittens. When she finds him gunned down in a nearby alley, a few subtle clues convince her that Alfred’s death was something more than the tragic result of a random mugging, despite the conclusions of the police. With Clare’s boyfriend, NYPD detective Mike Quinn, distracted by a cold case of his own, and ex-husband, Matt, “investigating” this year’s holiday lingerie catalogs, Clare charges ahead solo and discovers this Santa had a list that he was checking twice—and the folks on it were not very nice. Then someone tries to ice Clare, and she really gets steamed. 

Between baking delicious Christmas goodies and fending off the attentions of a persistent professional elf, Clare sets out to solve St. Nick’s murder. But she’d better watch out, because if she fails to stop this stone-cold killer, she may just get the biggest chill of her life.

    " I shouldn't have even tried this. It combines two things I hate -- amateur detectives and Christmas mysteries -- and not surprisingly it was godawful. It would probably be less godawful to people who actually like those things. "

    " I enjoy these light murder mysteries featuring Clare Cosi who manages the Village Blend, a coffehouse in New York. The author does a good job of crafting a mystery and creating good relationships and interesting characters. In this case, Clare rushes out to find her friend, a Traveling Santa who collects donations for the homeless, who has promised to attend her Fa-la-la-la-la latte testing. He is the one who suggested coming up with some new holiday flavors to tempt the public (what flavors and smells remind you of Christmas?). Unfortunately, Clare finds his dead body instead and becomes embroiled in solving the mystery when the police want to brush it off as an opportunistic mugging. There are lots of tasty recipes in the back and tips to make the recipes work out well, and though I won't try the coffee creations there are other yummy creations. Well, I probably won't try those either since I am a lazy cook, but I enjoyed reading them. "

    " Once again, I really enjoy the coffeehouse series by Cleo Coyle. It's one of two cozy mystery series I adore (the other being Sara Rosett's Ellie Avery series). "
