Clare Cosi used to manage the historic Village Blend coffeehouse … until she opted for quieter pastures and a more suburban life. But after ten years and a little friendly cajoling from the owner (a fresh pot of Jamaican Blue Mountain was all it took), she’s back to the grind. With a sprawling rent-free apartment directly above the Village Blend, her cat Java by her side, and plenty of coffeehouse redecorating ideas, Clare is thrilled to return to work. Until she discovers the assistant manager unconscious in the back of the store, coffee grounds strewn everywhere. Police arrive on the scene to investigate. But when they find no sign of forced entry or foul play, they deem it an accident. Case closed. But Clare is not convinced. And after the police leave, there are a few things she just can’t get out of her mind. Why was the trash bin in the wrong place? If this wasn’t an accident, is Clare in danger? And … are all detectives this handsome?

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Julie | 2/15/2014

    " It should be no surprise this book is enjoyable, after all, it's the story of a woman who runs a coffee shop with her ex-husband...hmmmmmmm. In addition to that, it's a fun and easy read, and while I usually steer clear of murder mysteries, this book had me intriqued without being completely grossed out. Lots of great coffee tips, recipes..really, a fun little series of books. "

    " This is the first book of Cleo Coyle's (funny name for a husband and wife writing team) that I have read and I loved it. There was just something about this book that reminded me of a leasurly day at my favorite bistro sipping a foamy latte and reading a cozy mystery next to a warm fireplace. The book doesn't disappoint. It is a page-turner. Kept me interested to the very end. "

    " A light entertaining start to a series - just what I needed to "cleanse my palate" after reading Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre back to back. Lots of coffee facts, which had me craving a latte or expresso! I'll be continuing this series. "
