I really enjoy this series. I think this one was a bit all over the place but still very enjoyable. In this book, the series is taking a turn for relationships and the business so it was very interesting but that also added to the bit of confusion I had. So much was happening. But it did set up for some new opportunities and struggles for the characters. Can't wait to see where the series is going. ( )

Hey, what could be more fun than coffee, mystery, and NYC! ( )

The excitement never wanes in this coffeehouse mystery by Cleo Coyle. Clare Cosi is an astute and well liked manager of a popular coffeehouse. She has a good working relationship with her ex-husband and his mother. When drugs are found smuggled in bags of coffee beans at their warehouse, she enlists the help of her current boyfriend, detective Mike Quinn. Undercover police is not her forte, but when an employee is the victim of a hit and run, Clare pulls out all the stops to trap the perpetrators. With engaging characters and an intricate plot with unexpected twists, this is one mystery that is hard to put down until the last page. ( )

The Coffeehouse Mysteries is one of the cozy mystery series I follow, mostly for the NYC setting and because I enjoy discussing it with my Mom - she’s anxiously waiting for Matteo to get his comeuppance.

A Brew To A Kill has a plausible premise: Since The Village Blend imports their own coffee beans and has a long and stable history with Customs, someone tries to add crack cocaine to their sacks of beans. Side issue: the “Kupcake Kween” is jealous of the attention The Blend’s new mobile coffee truck is getting.

I might even try a recipe from this one! Purple cake ! (Filipino Ube cake )

And after reading this one, I had to go to an International District bakery for an egg custard tart fix. I’m an addict. ( )

A Brew to Kill is the eleventh book in the Coffeehouse mystery series. Clare Cosi might think her life will settle down after all the mysteries she has solved, but she once again finds herself involved in some questionable circumstances. After a hit-and-run accident-turned-fatal, and when Clare discovers what might be smuggled crack, the coffeehouse heats up a lot faster than a shot of espresso.

Cleo Coyle once again stays true to readers and doesn’t disappoint or falter in this eleventh installment. Coyle has a knack for developing quick-witted characters which become familiar and loveable. She has the ability to blend mystery and social interactions that will leave readers wanting more. The descriptions of the different coffee blends throughout the novel don’t hurt either. You might need to brew your own cup in advance to satisfy the craving Coyle leaves you with. ( )
