There’s trouble brewing at the Village Blend. Business is booming—but Clare’s customers are starting to die. Soon after stopping at the coffeehouse, a regular jumps to her death in the subway. Or was she pushed? Detective Quinn is convinced that someone has an axe to grind, especially after the “suicide” of another female customer. Unfortunately, his prime suspect is Bruce Bowman—the new man in Clare’s life. Bruce is the perfect blend of rugged good looks and potent personality. Too bad the women in his life keep turning up dead. Now Clare will risk her heart—and her life—to follow the killer’s trail to the bitter end.  Download and start listening now!

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bettynz | 11/10/2013

    " Another series I am thoroughly enjoying. Combines the twin loves of coffee & New York, but this is the New York from quite a different perspective. This is village-Culture New York. Not Village though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zoe | 9/9/2013

    " Excellent book! I liked it so much better than the first one, "On What Grounds". The plot was very well woven and Clare's character really shines! I became a big Cleo Coyle fan after reading "Through The Grinder" and keep reading her work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley | 8/30/2013

    " I did not see that one coming, i love not being able to figure it out, but the clues have to be there when you look back. Good mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ali | 5/11/2013

    " I liked this one much better than the first of the series. Even though I figured out who the killer was mid-way through the book, I really liked how there were some pretty macabre/twisted elements and how the book ended, it wasn't a typical happily ever after cozy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristie | 4/29/2013

    " Good book, I'm hooked on the series now. I thought I had guessed the killer, but alas, I was wrong! The ending really surprised me! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 6/5/2012

    " This was recommended to me by a local indie bookstore, New and Recycled Romances. I'll definitely be reading this series! The ending packed an emotional punch that I never saw coming. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 1/5/2012

    " This is a good book, has a few twist and turns. Ending was unexpected I almost cried. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loricious | 11/16/2011

    " LOVE these quick reads. :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie | 11/7/2011

    " This is the worst kind of book: the sort of OK book that keeps making you think, "I'm sure it will get better." It doesn't. Coyle needs to decide what kind of book she wants to write, because changing genres every dozen pages does not work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorelie | 10/31/2011

    " Coffee and a great mystery what's not to love! Sad about the ending, but Quinn is her true love, so I guess it needed to happen? Looking forward to book 3! "

    " Good story. I guessed who the murderer was (unusual for me). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 February | 8/4/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricia | 5/21/2011

    " Mystery part okay, but the story is a little to "romance novelish" for my tastes. Thought same of first in this series, "On What Grounds", so probably won't read further books in series. PBK "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Regan | 2/10/2011

    " Much better than the first book. Less focused on how to make coffee and more on the fact that this is a murder mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Moira | 4/23/2008

    " I really enjoy this series but have to admit that the subject of this second "installment" disturbed me a bit. Stalking makes me very uneasy "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Val | 2/18/2008

    " Mystery line keeps moving. A lot of coffee references throughout the story. It does have some recipes at the end. "
