Glad I finally started reading this series. If u r a coffee person u will enjoy this book. Like the references to coffee. Also enjoyed the characters. Look forward to reading the next book in the series.
The book was well written, but I did not expect the level of detail on coffee, so I skimmed a lot. I don't usually read "food fiction," so this may be routine.
Clare Cosi, the main character, returns to the Village Blend, a coffeehouse she used to manage, at the urging of it's eccentric owner & her ex-mother in law. One of her employees has fallen down the stairs & lands in a coma. The police think it was an accident; Clare suspects otherwise, and decides to do some sleuthing herself.
This is a GREAT read. Great characters, interweaving relationships, & LOTS of coffee information.
If you are not a coffee lover, you will probably find youself skipping over coffee-specific details. Fortunately for me, I LOVE everything coffee related and hung on to every word. Even includes recipes for cocktails, coffee drinks & other dishes (coffee related, of course) made by the characters.
The perfect cozy mystery. All you need is a fireplace, a comfy chair, and a cappuccino. Ahh.. heaven.
