When the firefighters of Ladder Company 189 pull Clare’s friends out of a blazing café, she happily comes to their rescue. As a favor to the men, she visits their firehouse kitchen to teach them the finer points of operating their newly donated espresso machine. But more than their coffee turns out to be hot. Somebody’s torching cafés around the city, and firefighters are beginning to die in suspicious ways.

Believing the two events are related, Clare investigates, staking out a five-borough bake sale and sniffing out clues in the pizza joints of Brooklyn. When her detective boyfriend, Mike Quinn, is pulled into the fire of a false accusation, Clare is desperate to put out the flames. But will she be able to come to Mike’s rescue before someone tries to extinguish her?

    " I liked the book and have enjoyed the series but this didn't seem to keep me glued to the pages at others had in the past. I will still read the next one though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yolanda | 2/8/2014

    " I struggled with the beginning of this book. The last half of the book became much more of an exciting read. By time I reached the end, I felt the desire to read another one. I will continue to read this series. I do enjoy the characters especially Claire and Matt. I would like to see more story line with the two of them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 February Four | 1/26/2014

    " Don't make the same mistake I did! Holiday Grind actually comes _before_ Roast Mortem. Whatever source I was using to arrange the books is wrong. It won't really hurt your enjoyment of the story, but there are some characters introduced in Holiday Grind that you'll want to meet in that order before you start Roast Mortem. "

    " I tired never to read the stories of Clare and her coffee house and her friends.Is true can be unsafe be her friends because you can be murdered or charged for to have made it but then Mrs Cosi discover ever the culprit. As ever the plot is interesting and original and rich of suspance. Protagonists of Roast murder are the firefighters and so the story is more poignant and intense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 12/25/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Candace Davidson | 11/20/2013

    " I was worried about Clare and Mike's relationship towards the end of the book. I was hoping for the best. Great Job, Cleo on making Mike's cousin also named Michael. It made it an entertaining read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deyara | 11/19/2013

    " Fires this time, and still lots about coffee. Also some art, and a teensy taste of romance. Mystery was okay, Clare wasn't too OTT this time, or maybe I am becoming immune... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 9/9/2013

    " A cup of coffee or several are a must with this mystery. The main character Clare runs a coffee house and with a little help from employees and friends puts out the fires. Well thought out you'll enjoy solving this one and the recipes included are excellent. I'm shelfing this book with my cookbooks. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tracy | 7/21/2013

    " Not the best written mystery, nor was it far from predictable. Too many characters interfered with the storyline; however, the passion for describing coffee and baked goods was passionately exquisite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristi | 7/6/2013

    " A good continuation to the series, however I admit to being more excited by trying some of the recipes in this book than I was by the story itself. :) "
